106. Are you suggesting the Twin Towers can't be compared
to other buildings, because they were somehow flawed in design?

Which is why they collapsed from fire while others didn't?


If anything, the Twin Towers should have been even more impervious to collapse than conventional buildings due to its strength. The unparalleled strength of its core columns was one of the unique features of the WTC.

And WTC 7 DID in fact utilize a conventional design. So why did that building collapse while others did not?
