Molten STEEL Flowed Under Ground Zero for Months After 9/11

By | April 28, 2008

Reports of molten steel in the foundations of the Twin Towers and Building 7 have been noted in the literature of skeptics of the offial account of the building collapses. None of the official government reports have commented on these reports, although FEMA’s Report contained an appendix disclosing evidence of mysterious high temperature corrosion of steel due to a combination of oxidation and sulfidation. – 911rsrch

In response to the numerous reports of molten metal under ground zero, defenders of the official version of 9/11 have tried to argue that it was not steel, but some other kind of metal with a lower melting point.

Well, here are what top experts who eyewitnessed the molten metal say:

  • The structural engineer responsible for the design of the WTC, described fires still burning and molten steel still running 21 days after the attacks (page 3)
  • According to reporter Christopher Bollyn, MarkLoizeaux, president the world’s top demolition company, and Peter Tully, head of a large construction firm, said the following:

Tully told AFP that he had seen pools of “literally molten steel” in the rubble.

Loizeaux confirmed this: “Yes, hot spots of molten steel in the basements,” he said, “at the bottom of the elevator shafts of the main towers, down seven levels.”

The molten steel was found “three, four, and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed,” he said. He confirmed that molten steel was also found at WTC 7, which mysteriously collapsed in the late afternoon.

So, lets say there really was molten steel, what could cause that?

Thermite induced collapses would explain fires burning under water for months, but fires from jet fuel would have been extinguished.

Thermite contains its own supply of oxygen, and does not require any external source such as air. Consequently, it cannot be smothered and may ignite in any environment, given sufficient initial heat. It will burn just as well while underwater, for example, and cannot even be extinguished with water, as water sprayed on a thermite reaction will instantly be boiled into steam.

Here’s what eyewitness firefighters say:

  • New York firefighters recalled in a documentary film, “heat so intense they encountered rivers of molten steel
  • A NY firefighter described molten steel flowing at ground zero, and said it was like a “foundry” or like “lava”

Here’s what other eyewitnesses say:

  • A public health advisor who arrived at Ground Zero on September 12, said that “feeling the heat” and “seeing the molten steel” there reminded him of a volcano
  • A witness said “In the first few weeks, sometimes when a worker would pull a steel beam from the wreckage, the end of the beam would be dripping molten steel

The fact that there was molten steel under ground zero for months after 9/11 is very odd, especially since firefighters sprayed millions of gallons of water on the fires and applied high-tech fire retardants.
