Of course columns expire because of damage and fire , but I found it hard to understand ( I guess I have to re-read then) how perimeter columns (designed for transverse forces) could initiate a collapse of the core designed to hold the load. The only way why perimeter columns can bend is if the core fails first. In the movies you see that the major bending only takes place during the collapse(=tilt collapse) of the upper section. Photos with some time logos on it are nice but I prefer proper videos
Of course, and I'm not arguing for the validity of anything that NIST say at all, just providing mehmeti an arena within which to prove whether the source images are faked or not.
I do not think they are faked in any way.
