Huh? With a title like "A 9/11 Reality Check" one would expect Mr. Scheer to at least mention the considerable evidence that the official 9/11 story is one of the greatest big lies of our times.
The Dick Cheney/official version of what happened is unsupported by the evidence.
In reality, the twin towers and Building 7 were brought down by controlled demolitions. The evidence is overwhelming:
1. Thermite residues were found in the debris. (Thermite charges are used in demolition to cut the steel supports).
2. The buildings fell straight down against the path of greatest resistance, neatly into their own footprints, at near-free-fall speeds. Building 7 too, which wasn't even hit by a plane. (Building 7 also had the Enron evidence and other cases against corrupt Republicans.)
3. Explosive devices were found by multiple rescue workers in the Twin Towers before the collapses, and this was reported on the TV news at the time.
4. Numerous explosions were witnessed in the Twin Towers in the hour before the collapse, probably knocking out support structures for a clean demolition.
5. Rescue workers on tape reported numerous pop-pop-pop explosions during the collapse, as charges were detonated in a descending floor-by-floor sequence.
6. Molten steel was found weeks after the collapse, providing more proof that thermite charges were used. (Thermite is the only substance that could get steel that hot.)
7. Buildings have never collapsed like that from fire ever; before or after that event. Yet it happened three times that day.
