Once one has come to terms with the possibility that 9/11 was an inside job, one must face a very important question — What demolition company would even be capable of demoing such structures (WTC towers 1 & 2, and WTC building 7)? 

Lets take a closer look into a demolition firm known as Controlled Demolition, INC (CDI).

CDI’s website states the following about their company:

 “A two thousand ton skyscraper collapses like a house of cards, crumbling in on itself  – a waterfall of well-fractured steel and concrete debris. It lasts only seconds, and buildings within a few meters stand untouched. The very essence of Controlled Demolition, Inc. is in our name: CONTROL.” 

Does that description provided in their website remind you of anything?

Their website also admits that sensitive foreign and domestic operations have been conducted with U.S. Governmental Agencies. Here is an excerpt from the “Government” section of CDI’s website:

“Department of Defense (DOD)- Controlled Demolition Incorporated (CDI) has the appropriate experience and expertise to assist Department of Defense (DOD) agencies and contractors in demolition operations on sensitive projects, domestically and internationally. Through the support of our international network of offices and agent relationships, Controlled Demolition Incorporated can respond promptly for defense-related consulting and performance requests on short notice.” …. “Department of Energy (DOE)- Changes in the DOE’s mandate have called for the removal of thousands of structures at DOE sites spread across the United States. When fiscal constraints put pressure on site managers to increase decommissioning and dismantling without sacrificing safety of workers or the public, DOE officials looked for new technologies to make the transition. Controlled Demolition Incorporated’s (CDI’s) DREXS (Directional Remote Explosives Severance) and explosives concrete scarification and segmentation services can enhance production without sacrificing safety of operations.”

Tim Sullivan a,n Ex-CDI worker stated;

“There is no possible way those buildings could have collapsed the way they did from fire.”

It turns out CDI was subcontracted by Tully Construction for a $35 billion dollar contract, for debris removal on the WTC site.

This was quoted from an email;

The only sizably large pieces of debris left in the wreckage of the Twin Towers were steel beams that were around 30 feet or less – just the right size for easy removal by a flatbed trailer. Controlled Demolition, Inc.[CDI] – the company that received a reported $35 billion for the cleanup of the WTC site – boasts on their website about their DREXS demolition technology, which conveniently segments buildings and other structures into sizes that match their clientele’s removal equipment. They also mention that their demolitions “facilitate the fast-track debris removal required by ODDC to meet the site clearance schedule”.

A CDI employee stated on camera during a National Geographic shoot (9:04 into the video);

 “That’s the biggest steel beam I’ve ever seen other than the World Trade Center”. 

Can you say oops?

Note: The video in question has been pulled from the internet at this time, if anyone can find it send it in ASAP.

An excerpt from the following article entitled: Debris Mountain Starts to Shrink reads;

“This article provides important information for WTC demolition researchers, in particular because of the information about Controlled Demolition Inc., which (a) was apparently keen to have the debris removed and disposed of as soon as possible and (b) was able to come up with a detailed plan for doing so within eleven days of the collapse of the Twin Towers, suggesting that Controlled Demolition Inc. had detailed knowledge of the Twin Towers and the entire WTC complex prior to September 11th. The role of the U.S. Army in efforts to speed up the removal of the debris is also worth noting.”

As hope of finding survivors dims more than two weeks after the Sept. 11 attack on New York’s World Trade Center, officials and contractors are concentrating new efforts on debris removal. But many don’t expect a quick pickup in the cleanup pace. There is concern about the proximity of underground debris to the Twin Towers’ foundation and continuing sensitivity to recovering human remains and critical evidence. Even so, participants are developing a site-wide debris management plan that includes removal of an estimated 300,000 tons of structural steel.

The core of what may become the cleanup master plan for the wrecked site in lower Manhattan was delivered to the city’s Dept. of Design and Construction Sept. 22 by implosion consultant Controlled Demolition Inc., Phoenix, Md. The 25-page “preliminary” document offers a host of debris-related concerns and removal ideas related to the site’s key collapsed buildings and outlines other project management issues, from site security and safety to contrctor relations and offsite debris disposal.

CDI was initially retained by Tully Construction Co. Inc., one of the site’s four main cleanup management contractors, to assess debris removal in its sector that includes the former Two WTC and several smaller buildings. The site’s other contractors have also agreed to CDI’s involvement, with the goal of creating a site-wide master plan, says one contractor executive. “This will await the official end of search and rescue,” he adds. At ENR presstime on Sept. 25, neither Mayor Rudolph Giuliani nor city officials had made that pronouncement.

CDI contends that the progress of debris removal “must be subservient” to retaining the structural integrity of the slurry wall foundation. [This prevents flooding from the Hudson River.] “The highest priority and the great challenge in this emergency is to support the slurry wall,” says Mark Loizeaux, president.

The 1,000 x 500-ft foundation walls are intact, reports George J. Tamaro, lead engineer on the Mueser Rutledge team. Water inside seems to be related to rainfall and other sources, but is not river water, he says. Tamaro adds that there is “absolutely” a need for a slurry wall tieback system, but not necessarily all around the “bathtub,” which covers 7.5 acres.

Because the structures in the eastern half of the site are largely intact, CDI recommends them as the debris removal starting point. Above grade, the firm’s report recommends conventional wrecking methods to remove 4 WTC down to the slab. Conventional demolition of 5 WTC is not possible currently because it would get in the way of debris removal operations for the collapsed 7 WTC, which itself is a stand-alone operation. The report says some torch work will be necessary to isolate or downsize major structural steel debris. CDI recommends liquid oxygen-propane torches to avoid the “weld-back” of steel, which slows down operations.

Freestanding sections of the towers can “probably” be pulled over using cables and heavy equipment, says CDI. After the fall area is cleared, an excavator would progressively rock the freestanding element to build “accelerating harmonic response” until failure is achieved.

To accelerate progress, CDI also recommends attention to restoring transit service in the area and development of “a detailed sequence” for utility installation. The report also urges improvements in how project officials interact and communicate.

STACKING UP    While site concrete was largely pulverized into fine dust, huge quantities of damaged structural steel lay in tangled heaps throughout the former 16-acre WTC site. “I saw I-beams stacked six stories high,” says Allen Morse, chief debris expert for the Army Corps of Engineers, a technical advisor to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He says steeel could make up to as much as half of the site’s estimated 1.2 million tons of wreckage. “You can’t move machinery around unless you plan for it,” adds Morse.

An excerpt from Sifting Through the Loose Change -Click to read whole study reads;

Great research done on the claims made in the movie Loose Change. Not even FEMA was allowed access to ground zero.

Mark Loizeaux, the president of Controlled Demolition, Inc. told the American Free Press that in the basements of the WTC where 47 central support columns connected to the bedrock, hot spots of “literally molten steel” were discovered more than a month after September 11th. These incredibly hot areas were found at the bottoms of the elevator shafts down 7 basement levels. The molten steel was found “three, four, and five weeks later, when the rubble was being removed.” He said that molten steel was also found at World Trade Center 7. The highest temperature was in the east corner of the South Tower, where a temperature of 1377 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded. The molten steel in the basement was more than double that temperature. Do you still think that jet fuel brought down the World Trade Center?

Guess who was allowed into the site?

Controlled Demolition, who was also responsible for cleaning up after the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995. It gets better than that. On July 15th, 2001. Controlled Demolition destroyed two 400-foot-tall fuel reserve tanks from the World War II era. The demolition was conducted for no apparent reason, and drew numerous complains from the neighborhood. The site remains vacant to this day and a reason for the demolition has never been disclosed. (Source)

Another company has surfaced (DHG), that could have had possible involvement in the demolition as well. 

DHG was chosen by the DDC as the consultant in charge of all demolition operations at the WTC site. The DHG response team oversaw and approved all demolition activities associated with the WTC cleanup project. Source

The tipoff to this article and video evidence of CDI’s possible involvement on the WTC complex has been provided to us from an undisclosed source via tips@theintelhub.com. We are requesting any prudent information to be mailed to us so we can update this report. A big thank-you goes out to those brave individuals willing to come forward with Intel.
