Conspiracy: Unless the feds had something to do with it, the theory held by Rosie and others that the Twin Towers were brought down by the Bush administration just crashed and burned on a California freeway.
In recent discussions on the jaundiced "View" and her Web site, conspiracy theorist Rosie O'Donnell opined that the 9/11 collapse of the Twin Towers, as well as 7 World Trade Center, marked "the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel." This, she said, is "physically impossible."
Well, not exactly. Fire only has to weaken a structure already weakened by, say, a fully fueled passenger aircraft flying into it, sufficiently so that the weight of the structure brings it down.
Rosie as structural engineer. We wonder what Rosie's reaction was Sunday, when a gasoline truck exploded in flames beneath an elevated section of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge known as the MacArthur Maze, a network of ramps and interchanges that carries motorists to a number of freeways in the area.

Obivous, Isn't It? George Bush and the Oil Combines are at it again!
She is so stupid in her simple mind this never happened. All faked. Even the pictures. Reality can’t be part of this closed ignorant fool.
Rosie’s biases are such that it is easier for her to jump to the conclusion that Bush arranged the freeway collapse rather than that he didn’t knock down the world trade.
Actually I seem to remember her saying the Republicans did it. Excuse me, i was in Florida...
I doubt Rosie will notice anything unusual about the collapse of the overpass. Bridges and overpasses collapse under her weight all the time.
I can take a bag of charcoal briquettes, and a home made bellows, and melt iron in the yard. Primitive tribesmen do it daily, all over the world.
Cuttin’ torch!!! Git-r-dun.
You owe me a new keyboard...!
The Spew is for women who can’t keep up w/the Oprah.
Pray for W and Our Troops
Rosie needs to stick to licking carpet!
Well, we *mine* steel girders out of the
ground, as is, intact...don’tchaknow. They come
out of the ground in the shapes we use ‘em...
Not only is she not an engineer, she’s not an anything. Ignorant lout is adequate to describe this uneducated excuse for a populist leader.
White trash is also a pretty good descriptive.
Wouldn't "Steel Rafflesia" be better?
Its a darn shame they took the fat cow off of the view.
I would have loved to hear her response to this L0L
If it weren't’t for the freepers I would lose all faith in mankind.
Wow that’s sad!
The dumbass perverted ignorant traitor pig,
probably thinks steel is a naturally
formed susbtance. Such is her intellect, and
that of those who believe what she says.
Oh but you don’t understand! Fuel cannot melt steel - it was the tires on the truck. They haven’t been found so it is clear that Rove went in a got them after the truck crash. The WTC was FILLED with tires that is really what brought it down!!!!!
Of course. It’s the pretext for Bush’s invasion of San Francisco.
Some lib organ of higher learning should give Rosie an honorary doctorate in metallurgy. (If there is such a thing as a doctorate in metallurgy.)
Fire can’t melt steel???? Guess she doesn’t know how steel is made huh? Idiot.
And here I thought that Rosie was an expert in :
One can attempt to portray knowledge by being a ballistic bombastic blowhard, apparently.
What is realy absurd is that Idiots like her claim that the demolition explosions can be seen just before the collapse.
I would like to ask her just how did they fly the planes in the exact location of the explosive charges, and why did the crash not affect these charges?
The Law of Steel
For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.
This you can trust.
Cuz you can't trust Rosie.
Rosie ODonnell does not appreciate steel because when she had her brain damage incident when she was a child, her parents could not afford to have a steel plate put in her head.
Instead, she got just got a paper plate put up there.
Oops Rosie....steel is made from fire!
HEY! Nine out of ten orcs attacking Rohan were Sauruman's dudes, not Sauron's. So, just what the Hell was Aragorn doing going to war in Mordor!?
Aragorn lied; goblins died!!
The “gadflies” being her enablers at The Vi(sp)ew.
Unfortunately, Rosie isn’t the only one who believes that 9/11 could have been a government conspiracy. Only a crazy person would believe such a thing, but I’ve read articles on this subject that are absolutely amazing.
Hweird idiots now think they’re experts. Sheesh!
Rosies weight and breath alone could bring down a building.
Is it any wonder? Tough for any manmade structure to support this.
Only a crazy person would believe such a thing, but Ive read articles on this subject that are absolutely amazing.
Sure makes one wonder what these folks will say if Hill-de-pants is in charge and another tragedy occurs. Oh, forgive me, I forgot. It will still be Bush’s fault for years AFTER he leaves the W.H.
Ask any first year metallugical engineer.
H-m-m-m-m, maybe Rosie O’Fatso’s right. Maybe it was a conspiracy. If that is the case, then we had better be really, really concerned about what the Clintoon Thugs are planning because maybe they want to be able to show how the world’s smartest woman will handle a 9/11 type incident. Now THAT’s a possible conspiracy in the making.
I have spent a lot of time trying to give people a basic understanding of what happens when fire heats up steel. Most are not willing to believe it, as they just want to say “Bush blew up the WTC!”.
actually Rosie is claiming that the fires in WT7 didn’t reach the melting point, so they couldn’t have brought the building down (in her mind).
She claims the building fell into it’s “own footprint” (not exactly true).
That the concrete became “dust” (some of it did, some of it didn’t), and that it had to be brought down by controlled demolition.
She doesn’t claim to know “who” demolished the building but urges people to find out for themselves who had offices in the building.
This, of course, is supposed to lead people onto the path of Bush.
She is upset with O’Reilly for mischaracterizing her statements as claiming Bush brought down WT7.
However it is a reasonable assumption to make concerning the links provided at her website.
It also means that anyone who thinks 9/11 was all about destroying records held in WT7, must think that the planes crashing into the north and south tower were part of that “master plan” as well.
Afterall....who is going to rig a building to blow and then sit around and wait for planes, by chance, to fly into buildings?
So it is reasonable to assume that these Saudi “terrorists” were just part of some strange plan to destroy records being held in offices in WT7.
Someone should also as Rosie why the building code required the Twin Towers and other hi rises steel to be insulated from fire you dont require something to be protected from fire if it not affect by fire...
It was the spray on foam fire insulation that got striped from the steel on impact on the aircraft exposing the bare steel to the fire
I could be wrong on this last part but I believe in fact a code change during construction the lower part and an asbestos rap use for years in steel hi risess but because of environment law changes they switch on the upper part to a spray on foam fire insulation
I have seen what fire does to structural steel in only a short time.
A structure in a refinery where I worked caught fire, and although the fire department was able to respond and get the fire out before major damage was done, we had quite a lot of rebuilding to do.
One of the key things was that the structural steel twisted, almost corkscrew; we brought in a large crane to keep the tower upright while piece by piece we went in and replaced the steel beams.
So, while the structure didn’t collapse in the short time it was on fire, the steel was badly distorted by the heat.
