Often dismissed as conspiracy theory, the question of whether 9/11 was an inside job remains largely unanswered today. Even to the layman, we have to ask why the towers collapsed from the bottom as though it was a controlled demolition? And why a smaller building nearby collapsed and it wasn’t even stuck with a plane? Why did both towers collapse when they were struck near the top?
Well these questions are likely to be raised again as a new, but not so new story is coming from William Rodriguez who was one of the last people out (if not THE LAST PERSON) of the tower before it collapsed. Rodriguez was a maintenance worker working in the basement prior to the planes crashing into the building. And he describes an explosion a few seconds prior to the first plane reaching the building.
Rodriguez and a handful of co-workers who were down in the basement at the time of the attack, actually heard and felt huge explosions beneath their feet in the lower basement levels. While this anomaly in itself should have been cause for serious investigation, it is the timing of these explosions that is extremely troubling: They occurred several seconds before the first airplane impacted the tower. The first of these explosions, which occurred about 7-8 seconds before the plane struck the tower was so powerful it literally threw Rodriguez upwards, clean off the floor, as parts of the false ceiling collapsed onto and around him. Rodriguez heard and felt at least three explosions going off down in the basement levels within seconds of each other. Absolute pandemonium broke out, with screams of “Bombs! Bombs!” rising above the din as terrified workers scattered in all directions, frantically seeking ways to escape.
Bombs indeed? That would explain the nature of the collapse. More questions to stoke the fire. What if it were an inside job? Perhaps they intended to detonate the bombs at the same time as the planes hit and the timing was just off a bit. This would indeed answer some questions but would raise even more. Who coordinated this? Was Al Qaeda coordinated and pervasive enough to carry off something like this? Or were the Muslims on the plane merely pawns in someone’s game?
You can say what’s done is done and let’s move on. But with so many questions and even more questions raised by Rodriguez, who can move on?
