Scary animation of 9/11 jet impact reveals truth

Okay conspiracy theorists (otherwise known as "truthers"), swallow this: Scientists at Purdue University and the American Society of Civil Engineers spent two years creating the most comprehensive computer model yet of the impact of an American Airlines Boeing 767 into the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Just as we thought:

"Purdue's findings confirm the report by the National Institute of Standards and Technology: that widespread fires initiated by the jet fuel weakened the steel columns and brought down the towers."

Sure, it's exciting to think government spooks planted high explosives in the World Trade Center towers, bringing both down after a couple of planes crashed into them. But really, how could they have kept such a widespread conspiracy a secret? Truthers, take off your tinfoil hats and please let us know, how much evidence do you need?
