From the indictment against KSM.
“COUNT NINE Destruction of the Twin Towers

“KNOWINGLY DAMAGED AND DESTROYED , BY MEANS OF FIRE AND EXPLOSIVES, BUILDINGS, VEHICLES, AND OTHER REAL AND PERSONAL PROPERTY USED IN INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE AND IN ACTIVITIES AFFECTING INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE..”.
BY MEANS OF FIRE AND EXPLOSIVES?
BUILDINGS, VEHICLES, AND OTHER REAL AND PERSONAL PROPERTY ?
Oh so there were explosives? But NIST didn’t do tests for explosives. Why would it? Fires brought the buildings down…
