You're awfully sure about things you admit to not knowing.

There is nothing it the building code that talks about prevention of fire burning at these high temperatures. Additionally, an airliner is going to destroy most if not all of the infrastructure that prevents fires, on impact. How does a fire barrier withstand catastrophic impact of that magnitude?

Before what? By whom? For what reason? Who were those others that flew the planes? What difference does it make who flew the planes? Did planes fly into buildings or didn't they?

Instead of speculating from 'alternative facts', why not actually read the NIST FAQ that addresses all these issues in a way that actually explains what happened. Or, you know, just keep rollin' with the c.t. bullshit videos.
