In response to the question as to whether or not demolition grade explosives could have been planted in the WTC buildings without detection and with the precision and consistency required to achieve such a successful and clean blast - highly unlikely. I worked on the federal trial of Timothy McVeigh in Denver, and with the level of security maintained simply for his trial it would be impossible. Every box, every handbag, every item, no matter how small, was checked and rechecked before being admitted. Every person entering was run through an FBI system to check for questionable affiliations and anyone with any criminal history or questionable background was not admitted and often detained. All vehicles were surveilled and those that seemed suspicious or that were large enough to carry dangerous cargo were inspected. Buildings that house CIA and FBI personnel on an ongoing, routine basis employ similar security measures every single day, 24/7, and they have the added benefit of multiple surveillance cameras. Unless the entire camera system was shutdown for routine maintenance and the entire security staff of the WTC had been relieved of duty for some random thank-you dinner or employee in-service, it is simply impossible for the necessary men and explosives to have covered those three buildings undetected for the hours needed.

And even if Muslim extremists did, by some miracle, manage it, what of the myriad other inconsistencies in the Bush Administration's story? Too many ill-fated miracles surrounding one event for me to swallow! Let us look instead to those profiting from this war: their behavior on 9/11 is odd; their stories inconsistent and seemingly untruthful; and their ongoing efforts to prevent a meaningful and genuine inquiry are troubling, at best. Let logic reveal the truth. Thank you, Mr. Heller, for applying this principle in your examination of the collapse of the WTC buildings and for having their courage to make your findings public!
