Towers “had help” coming down: Chief Engineer at Ground Zero

June 3, 2019

Engineer Martin Seigel was a supervisor at Ground Zero with Bovis Lend Lease during the post-9/11 rescue and recovery operation at the World Trade Center from 12 September 2001 until 11 July 2002. From Day One, Seigel said, he knew the towers “had help” coming down. (Photo: Aftermath by Joel Meyerowitz)

I contacted Martin Seigel (pronounced as Siegel) in my effort to find out more about a large and mysterious final load that was allegedly taken from the World Trade Center to a hazardous material disposal site near Niagara Falls in the summer of 2002. Having had no luck with the receiving side, I decided to contact the supply side. Seigel had worked with Bovis Lend Lease, one of the foreign companies awarded contracts to remove the rubble from the destroyed World Trade Center after 9/11.  Of the four companies that were awarded contracts to clean up the World Trade Center only one was actually an American company, Tully Construction of Flushing, New York.

The WTC debris site was divided between four contracters. Amec (blue) got the North Tower and Customs House, Bovis (green) got the South Tower, Turner (yellow) got WTC 7, and Tully (pink) got WTC 4 and 5. This means that the three buildings that were demolished (WTC 1,2, and 7) – crime scenes of the worst mass murder in U.S. history – were all cleaned up by foreign-owned companies.

Seigel had worked on the pile for nearly a year, until July 2002, as a supervisor for Bovis Lend Lease, the foreign company that oversaw the entire clean-up effort from January 2002.  He said he did not know anything about the mysterious load, but when I asked him if he believed the official version about the collapse of the World Trade Center, I was astounded to hear him say, “The buildings had help coming down.”

Asked if other engineers working on the WTC site shared his opinion that the towers “had help” being brought down, Seigel said, “definitely”.  Most of the people on the site, he said, “felt that was the case.”

I asked Seigel when he had realized that the towers had not simply collapsed, but had been blown up.  He said that already on the first day a Port Authority “cop” had shared important information with him that indicated an explosive demolition, but that he could not share this information with me because it had been given in confidence.

He also pointed to the fact that a large steel section, weighing some “ten tons,” from one of the towers had been thrown hundreds of feet into the American Express building (World Financial Center 3) at an angle perpendicular to the path of the plane.

Large steel sections of the North Tower were thrown into the American Express building (WFC 3) with great velocity, hundreds of feet away. This is proof that the towers did not simply fall due to a gravity collapse.

Seigel said that the “puffs of smoke” that were seen being shot out of the towers below the level of collapse indicated an explosive demolition.

Asked about the pools of molten metal found in the rubble, Seigel said they were found at “different levels” and that he had seen such pools “three to four feet in diameter.”

Seigel also said that he had seen molten glass or crystal, attached to a chandelier, in the rubble.  Both glass and crystal have higher melting temperatures than steel, or iron.
