But that's conspiracy theorists.

Most seem unaware of the basics - possibly genuinely. Steel frames are vulnerable to fire and their design - esp high rise - is an economic compromise - risk managed and relying on active fire fighting. Hence the 'fire rating' expressed in hours - which gives time for occupant escape and commencement of necessary active fire fighting.

And the occupants had escaped WTC7 - primary objective met.

Of course the objective to save the building and prevent damage to neighboring properties is an objective as well and shouldn't be ignored.

Since I'm not a fire fighter, I suppose that is a second creed, behind saving lives.

I doubt he's "hiding" or even thinking about this phase of his life. Outside of this site........no one seems to care.

Seconded. Mark Basile has most likely forgotten about this long ago.

The people he scammed took money from.......

....another story.
