The next official study was the NIST report that never even mentioned Tower 7.
We don't know why this happened. It never happened before. It's never happened again. It defies everything we know about science and physics. That's not odd to you? It is to me.
Building 7, building 7, building 7. This seems to be a go-to for conspriacy theorists.
Building 7, to me, isn't all that important. I mean, all that happened is it came down. There were no casualties. There's no purpose for anyone to bring it down. It didn't stick in anyone's mind, so it didn't succeed from a terrorism perspective. So what I question is not how it came down, but why. What purpose would any group, our own government, Al-Queada, Neo-Nazis, KKK, whoever, have in bringing it down? The obvious conspiracy theory answer is to cover something up but...it was already on fire. Just let the fire cover it up. Feed the fire even, that would be so much easier to do, at least covertly, than to bring it all down. Why go through all the effort of something so obviously visable as a demolition, taking the building down, just to cover up some documents, when it would be so much easier, more subtle, just as effective and less expensive to just continue to feed the fire and let it continue to burn it all down, while making it look like you are fighting it? To me, logically speaking, theres more reason NOT to bring down building 7, than to do it.
Also, a small detail of contention....it wasn't just fire alone. The building was damaged by falling debris when a 100+ story building catastrophically collapsed right next door to it. Once again, how many times had that happened before? How many 100+ story buildings have ever collapsed like that? How much of the debris from those collapses hit building 7 and damaged it? Did anything in the building get doused in jet fuel from the planes as they crashed or as the buildings with the planes inside them and all that jet fuel in the towers came down? (I genuinely don't know that or if that could happen, but I do think that if it did, that also changes how the fires and support structures behave.)
