NY Fireman: There were 'BOMBS IN THE BUILDING!'

A growing mountain of evidence and testimony shows that it WAS explosives which brought the World Trade Center towers to the ground, as well as several other structures in the WTC complex.
Keep in mind the NYFD's chief arson investigator said on on TV on 9.12 that internal explosives WERE USED to bring down the WTC towers!

We were the first ones in the second tower after the plane struck. I was taking firefighters up in the elevator to the 24th floor to get in position to evacuate workers.
On the last trip up a BOMB went off. WE THINK THERE WAS BOMBS SET IN THE BUILDING. I had just asked another firefighter to stay with me, which was a good thing because we were trapped inside the elevator and he had the tools to get out.
There were probably 500 people trapped in the stairwell. It was mass chaos. The power went out. It was dark. Everybody was screaming. We had oxygen masks and we were giving people oxygen. Some of us made it out and some of us didn't. I know of at least 30 firefighters who are still missing. This is my 20th year. I am seriously considering retiring. This might have done it.
When the first broadcast were being made of interviews with people who were standing watching the buildings burn, one commentator said while watching the building: "What's that you heard? 'Pop, pop, pop,' and you saw glass being blown AWAY from the building and THEN the building begin to crash?"
The glass being blown outward was shown going from the bottom UP, NOT from the top DOWN.
I saw it, I heard it, and I said to myself those were detonations. Later I saw the same clip shown, but with no sound. http://www.konformist.com/911/bombs.htm

My father has been an engineer for 30 years and he's worked on structural designs for high-rise buildings... he said he found it "completely unbelievable" that both towers had collapsed into rubble within half an hour of being struck by the two planes.
not only that... (english)

My father has been an engineer for 30 years and has worked on structural designs for high-rise buildings... the WTC towers were sort of a hobby of his. Anyway, when he saw the impact of the planes he said he found it "absolutely unbelievable" that both towers folded within 30 minutes of being hit.

Sorry for the double posting... I made the first one about an hour ago and gave up on it appearing, so I made the second just now. Indy always does that to me. :)
