A pain in the butt/waste of time is the maintenance dealing with people claiming controversy. I like turning "sayings" like around...

Steady and slow wins the race, but then you won't have time to stop and smell the roses

I grew up looking at it, came very close to losing two family members in the WTC (my FDNY uncle, and my aunt who worked in it), and know a few people who died in it (my uncle's firehouse). It isn't too controversial.

I'll take an educated guess that the trade center feature/flaw was the exo-skeleton supported design. The heating of the inner floor web support beams effectively allowed them to bend and buckle the exo-skeleton inwards, contributing to the ultimate collapse of the most damaged floors and the upper floors propagated futher collapse through the outright force of their momentum.

In a nutshell, had the towers been constructed with a relatively small number of inner support columns, they probably would not have collapsed.

Pretty close -- but keep in mind that the outer core structure did not support the weight of the building (at least, that was not it's primary function).

We sure can say "probably" -- but we do know there is safety in redundancy.
