September 11, 2001 is a time in U.S. history that everyone will remember, it holds a special place in almost every American’s heart, as well as the families in other countries who lost a loved one that day.

There is plenty of footage of the towers when they come down. In most of the videos the there is a light flash at the bottom of the towers right before they collapse. The light flash at the bottom is a bomb going off. This evidence indicates that the collapsing of the towers was due to controlled demolition. There has also been accounts of scientists claiming to of found
