People Could Have Planted Bombs in the World Trade Center Without Anyone Noticing

Preface: This essay does not argue that bombs brought down the Twin Towers or World Trade Building 7.  It simply addresses the often-made argument that no one could have planted explosives without people noticing.

Tightrope walker Philippe Petit  snuck into the World Trade Center with a friend in 1974 with massive amounts of equipment, smuggled the equipment to the  top floor and rigged up a highwire for his tightrope walking stunt without being detected.

In 2009, Raw Story notes:

A  Government Accountability Office investigator smuggled live bomb  components into a federal building in just 27 seconds, then assembled a  bomb in a restroom and ventured throughout the building without being  detected, a leaked tape revealed Wednesday.

In addition,  congressional investigators were able to penetrate every single federal  building they probed without any difficulty — 10 in all.

And see this.

In fact, there is additional evidence that bombs could have  been planted in the World Trade Center without anyone knowing:

The chief electrical engineer who wired the World Trade Centers (Richard Humenn) says that  people working on the elevators could have planted explosives:

Mechanical engineer Gordon Ross, in his talk on the destruction of the Twin Towers, pointed out that:

“Those  [core] columns which were situated adjacent to and accessible from  inside the elevator shafts failed at an early stage of the collapse.

Those  columns which were remote from the elevator shafts, and not accessible  from the elevator shafts, survived the early stages of the collapse.”*

According to USA Today:  “On Sept. 11, ACE Elevator of Palisades Park, N.J., had 80 elevator mechanics inside the World Trade Center“.

And NIST itself says that, on 9/11, “Elevators 6A and 7A were out of service for modernization“. (NIST NCSTAR 1-8, p.97).

In addition, Ace worked in and around structural steel:

A  run of approximately 80 vertical feet, employed over 300 running feet  of 2-1/2″ x 8″ and 2″x 2″ trough raceway. This run traveled through  plaster ceilings, concrete floors and around structural steel.

These  are just a few of the known, public examples of opportunities to plant  bombs. There were undoubtedly many additional opportunities available to  skilled operatives.
