56. Nist itself admits the towers had oxygen depleted fires....
To quote NIST
"Nearly all indoor large fires including those of the principal combustibles in the WTC towers produce large quantities
of optically thick, dark smoke. This is because at the locations where the actual burning is taking place the oxygen is
severely depleted and the compustibles are not completely oxidized to colorless carbon dioxide and water."
The temps may have been very hot at the time of crash as the fuel burned as MIT guy says but soon settled into the oxygen depleted fire of" nearly all indoor large fires". Since Nists contention is the sustained overheated temperatures caused structural failure in addition to the damage done by the planes. I would be concerned If I were you by this admission by NIST of lower temps from the tower fires than would be needed to produce this effect. Be honest you really have not read the NIST report very well have you?
And because you think firefighters and officials were not concerned by the fires under the rubble does not make them unworthy of investigation and explaination.
