21. Sorry, but 9/11 conspiracy theories do encompass all of the
versions that I mentioned. I did not call out any particular scheme as being more or less implausible than any of the others. I merely stated that none of them were plausible to me.

> Very few espouse the idea of mini-nukes, space beams

Point taken.

> When I see an administration lying to me over and over on x, y and z issues, why is it so crazy to believe
> they lied about 9/11 issues as well.

This is a point I see repeated all the time, but it makes no sense to me. The OCT is *not* GWB's private property. The 9/11 Comission was bi-partisan, and the NIST and FEMA reports were produced by hundreds of professionals with no connections to the administration. Hell, my graduate professor in advanced mechanics of materials at WPI was part of the investigation. Are hundreds of engineers and scientists lying? I think not.

I will humbly note that I am a degreed mechanical engineer, and I find it emminently plausible that a 100+ story building would fail given the extent of structural and thermal damage. I cannot for the life of me imagine it *not* falling as it did once the collapse sequence began.
