12 days after Tony ran away from here, and 6 days after he capitulated in the email discussion with me, he had the Chuzpah to go on Twoof Radio with his shtick:

http://911freefall.com/22317-tony-sz...plasco-report/

(I did not actually listen to a single second of this, but would appreciate if someone could at least clock the Time to 1st Lie)

Tony comes on at 18:00. He cites "pulling out molten metal" at ~21:00, which is certainly dishonest, although you could say that he has a degree of plausible deniability on that.

No. He most definitely cannot count on "plausible deniability". I asked him, publicly in this thread and privately in email conversation, part of which I documented here, many many times:
Is it at all possible to literally "pull out" metal that is literally "molten" (meaning "liquid")?
He refused to answer this simple Yes/No question tooth and nail.
The relevant information here is that he did NOT answer "yes, it is possible at least to literally pull out liquid metal", which documents, loudly and clearly, that Tony is 100% aware that a literal interpretation of the phrase describes something impossible.

He insists in interpreting "molten" literally as "liquid", when other meanings are in the dictionary, such as "red hot, glowing"; while at the same time taking liberties with the interpretation of "pull out".

He is most clearly on record as blatantly dishonest on this.

There are guys out there who use a very loose definition of "pull out".

chapter.
NFPA 921 advises, “All available fuel sources should be
considered and eliminated until one fuel can be identified as meeting all of the physical damage criteria as well as any other
significant data.”
So far, no plausible fuel source other than explosives has
been identified.
I'm only on page nine.

Yes - or perhaps they pretend they think it was another inside demolition job.

You see, they painted themselves in a corner when they decided to put their religious faith into a global claim: "No steel-framed highrise can ever collapse due to fire".
They supported this global claim with anecdotal evidence: They observed that "no other steel-framed highrise has ever collapsed from fire" - this is anecdotal, as it rests only in the finite set of steel-framed highrises that experienced major fires.

The problem is: You cannot prove a global claim with a limited number of examples.

You can however, disprove a global claim with a single refuting example.

And this has happened now: The Plasco building is one example of a steel-framed highrise that collapsed from fire.
This single example disproves the global AE911Truth claim that "no steel-framed highrise can ever collapse due to fire".

Since they are not interested in scientific knowledge but defending a religious faith, they find themselves forced to reject the refuting evidence, and pretend that it was not the fires that brough the Plasco down.

Let's not forget the desperate attempt to disqualify this building as a "high-rise". Many post here were wasted counting floors to show it qualified to an arbitrary number of 15 floor to be a "high-rise".

I think that's what they're doing. Your post makes perfect sense to me.

I predict that these claims will be significantly detrimental to AE911Truth's influence on people 'on the fence' about 911 CD, like I was. For a long time I was confused enough about the twin towers and building 7 so as to not be able to make a decision regarding the validity of the controlled demolition claims, and was influenced by the professional support of what appeared to be a credible organization (AE911Truth).

But it is just so unbelievably obvious that there is no reason to consider explosives at the Plasco building, that AE911Truth's claiming there is makes their agenda very clear, even to me.
