used on the World Trade Center?

Photos below: Three photos of the mysterious burning object passing through the South Tower. The white flame in the large photo is almost pure white, and it leaves a dark trail.
Is this the burning remnant of a DU penetrator?
|The video, "911: In Plane Site," by Dave vonKleist, examines the video
evidence and shows that there was a white flash before United Airlines
Flight 175 and American Airlines Flight 11 struck the towers.
In the case of the South Tower, the vonKleist video shows the underside of the plane, seen from from four different cameras and angles, with a cylindrical pod and a mysterious white object being fired from the pod before the plane hits the tower. This object impacts the tower before the plane, creating a bright flash.
A similar white flash can be seen in the video, made by the Naudet brothers, of Flight 11 crashing into the North Tower.
The white flashes are similar to the flashes that are seen when depleted uranium (DU) penetrators hits their target. DU is a spontaneous pyrophoric material, i.e. it inflames when reaching its target generating such heat that it explodes.
If DU missiles preceded the impacts of Flights 175 and 11, then there is the question of what happened to the DU penetrators? One would expect that they traveled through the towers and carried on into the streets of New York or into other buildings.
Unless they impacted sufficiently dense objects to stop them, they should have continued through the buildings, and be seen flying ahead of the flames and debris. After all, uranium is 1.7 times more dense than lead.
A photo in Eric Hufschmid's book "Painful Questions" [p. 39] shows two objects passing through the South Tower, ahead of the flames. One of them displays the characterics of burning uranium [see below].
In the main photo, seen below, two objects are visible passing through the South Tower. One is black and leaving a white smoke trail; the other is burning with a bright white flame and leaving a black trail.
The color of the flame and the color of the oxides [smoke] are important. The color of the flame indicates the substance that is burning and its temperature. The bright white flame is indicative of a reactive metal, such as magnesium or uranium.
American Free Press contacted Marion Fulk, a former staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, to ask about the photos seen below. After studying the photos, AFP asked Fulk if the object in the photo could be uranium.
"Yes," Fulk said, "It is possible."
Asked if the black smoke could be uranium oxides, Fulk said, "Yes, it could be uranium oxide."
Fulk went on to describe the "dirty" olive green, brown, and black colors of the 21 different phases of uranium oxide.
The gap between the burning object and the black smoke trail was explained by Leuren Moret, geo-scientist and international radiation expert, who said that the gap is where the uranium gas and vapors are so hot they are still invisible. As the vapors cool, they condense into visible uranium oxides.
Asked how the piece of uranium could be burning so hot, Moret explained that some of the kinetic energy from the uranium missile would be converted into heat.
If this is a DU penetrator, it could explain Moret's claim that the World Trade Center rubble was radioactive.
Were DU missiles used to ignite the fuel in the airplanes to create
the spectacular explosions that were used to explain the pre-planned demolition
of the twin towers?
Video Evidence of DU on 9/11
Christopher Bollyn presented evidence that debunked the official version of events of 9/11 at a meeting in Los Angeles in October 2004.
He showed this video about the possibility that uranium was used during
the attack at the WTC and the Pentagon:
The photo below from the Pentagon clean-up shows the extensive decontamination procedures that were followed after 9/11. Such procedures and precautions were not done at the World Trade Center. What were the people at the Pentagon so concerned about?
Was the site hot from depleted uranium?
