Their mission, here in Guatemala's wild north: Blow up dozens of clandestine airstrips used by planes laden with Colombian cocaine.
Subsequently, Victor Thorn published an article amplifying the e-mail and promoting its assertions as fact. Mon, 19 Apr Please note some other facts. In we occupied floors 90 and of the South Tower and lost 87 employees plus many contractors.
This power down condition meant there was no electrical supply for approx 36hrs from floor 50 up. I am aware of this situation since I work in IT and had to work with many others that weekend to ensure that all systems were cleanly shutdown beforehand The reason given by the WTC for the power down was that cabling in the tower was being upgraded Can you help publicise them?
Please feel free to mail me. It makes no sense that the perpetrators would do something so obvious as powering down half of a tower so shortly before the attack. This would create a profound disruption of business for dozens of companies, and would be noticed by thousands of people.
Thousands of e-mails would have been broadcast and a great deal of work would have been done by scores of employees to prepare for the outage. It makes less sense that they would take such a drastic action but only for one half of one tower.
Why was the disruption only necessary for the upper floors of the South Tower, or how would similar power-downs of the other sections have gone unnoticed?
Powering down for cabling upgrades is laughable as a cover story for demolition preparation work.
Cabling upgrades for data bandwidth do not require interrupting AC power at all. Even if the AC wiring were being upgraded, the new wiring would have been installed and powered up in parallel with the old wiring.
Any interruptions would be minimized to a few minutes. Powering down large portions of a tower, and for 36 hours, would have generated numerous protests from tenants. If power to the security systems were interrupted, many doors would remain unopenable except by key.
Scott Forbes stands by his story, but has not provided any corroborating information that might allow it to be verified. The interview provides only a few additional details to the story, such as that Scott worked on the 97th floor of the South Tower, and that the "power down" lasted from approximately 12 noon on Saturday, September 8 through 2 PM on Sunday, September 9.
Although the interviewer queries Forbes on several of the points noted above, Forbes fails to explain any of them. He states that "Many, many people worked on the power down" but does not provide any names.
When queried on how he knew that the "power down" affected floors 50 and up, Forbes expresses less certainty than in his original e-mail: How do you know that there was no electricity from floor 50 up, if Fiduciary Trust was on much higher floors -- starting at the 90th floor?Trevor Noah and The World's Fakest News Team tackle the biggest stories in news, politics and pop culture.
Aug 18, · Help; Suggestions; Send Feedback; Arts & Humanities History. Next. Why did the South Tower fall on 9/11? I can understand why the North Tower collapse. The North Tower received way more damage than the South Tower did, and the fires were way worse.
Why would you say the South Tower was not as heavily damaged by the impact? How Status: Resolved.
In the South Tower, the impact was slightly off center to the central section of the tower and stairway A in the northwest portion of the central core was only partially blocked, and 14 to 18 civilians managed to escape from the point of aircraft impact and the floors above that. (NIST) found a three-page white paper that mentioned aircraft. The page grew. It was a joint effort, though at first David kept his day job as a computer tech and coder at an HMO. His income paid for their expenses and the cost of running the site.
