WTC 9/11 myths and answers

My cousin is a newly-fledged libertarian, and he's been reading a lot of
stuff on the Web. He asked about some of the 9/11 conspiracy stuff on Lew
Rockwell's Web site, and in researching it, I found a very good resource.

_Popular Mechanics_ magazine devoted its March 2005 cover story to
conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks, and provides very good
scientific data to answer the conspiracy claims, ranging from simple
misinformation (like the meaning of a "northerly wind") through a closer
look at the same evidence (taking a 40-second look at a seismograph instead
of a 30-minute one turns a spike into a rumble), to alternative
explanations (steel doesn't need to melt to weaken).

If someone already believes in the cover-up, then the presence of FEMA
sources in an establishment magazine probably won't change their
minds. Nonetheless, the article is a good answer to the wobblier
scientific claims floating around the 'net.
