In what can be described as a monumental step forward in the relentless pursuit of 9/11 truth, a United States Attorney has agreed to comply with federal law requiring submission to a Special Grand Jury of evidence that explosives were used to bring down the World Trade Centers.
"There is no scientific basis for the conclusion that explosions brought down the towers," Lerner-Lam tells PM. "That representation of our work is categorically incorrect and not in context."
Geophysicist Terry Wallace concurs.
"How can geologists catch a terrorist? With their instruments, explains Terry Wallace, a geophysicist at the University of Arizona. There are about 16,000 seismometers installed around the world, many of which offer data on freely accessible Web sites. Seismometers detect motion in the Earth, which can be triggered by an earthquake, or possibly explosions.
By learning how to read these signals, Wallace hopes scientists might catch on to suspicious activity.
"We can study these signals and begin to develop a portfolio of different kinds of signatures of explosions," says Wallace. "It will be like have a set of fingerprints."
Geophysicists have already contributed critical data to terrorist investigations. It was geologists who determined there were no secondary explosions at the base of the World Trade Center towers — but only the impact of the airplanes and subsequent fires — that contributed to the towers' collapse on Sept. 11".

I am going to assume (could well be wrong) that it will cost millions for this invetigation at the US taxpayers expense and then nothing will come of it, as much as i like a conspiracy I DO believe planes were flown into the towers, I was transfixed to the television on the day, the who and why is still up for debate but not the actual reason the towers collapsed, in my mind/opinion
A Morning That Shook the World: The Seismology of 9/11
Over succeeding weeks, Kim and his colleagues worked with federal investigators, the New York Fire Department, the Port Authority and others to provide seismic records that could be combined with photos, videos and eyewitness reports. Their first product, coauthored by 12 Lamont seismologists and grad students, was a November 2001 paper published by the American Geophysical Union describing the waves generated by the attacks, their potential effects, and the precise timing of each event.

It is amazing that at least for the moment, the law is being followed. Ed Asner and the team of lawyers have done a great job. Maybe there actually IS a few honorable men in the US Attorney's office.
I suspect that the big wigs in Washington will do their best to quash this.
Does the truth have a chance of prevailing in the US? Not likely, but this gives it a chance.
9/11 and the Science
of Controlled Demolitions
3WHAT ABOUT THE ALMOST FREE-FALL COLLAPSE OF THE TWIN TOWERS? The key is the “almost” modifier. If I told you I was making almost $100,000 and you found out I was making only $67,000, you’d say I was exaggerating. So stop exaggerating the collapse speed of the WTC Towers! The 80,000 tons of structural steel slowed down the collapses of the Twin Towers to about ⅔ (two-thirds) of free-fall.3 And the core collapsed at about 40% of free-fall speed, coming down last.4 According to Richard Gage: “To bring a building symmetrically down, what we have to do is remove the core columns.” But on 9/11 the stronger core columns came down last, which violates this supposed most fundamental rule of controlled demolition.
The one glaring anomaly in the description of the towers given to the insurers is the reinforced concrete infill panels.
