This is really, really obvious with any kind of rudimentary  
engineering background.  The general engineering core most undergrad  
engineering students are required to take supply more than adequate  
knowledge for the "how" of this to be obvious.

I have seen this elaborated on ad nauseum elsewhere by engineers, so  
I don't see the need to elaborate on it here.  Since you have clearly  
spent a lot of time thinking about this, you either refused to  
believe the basic engineering explanations, did not understand the  
basic engineering explanations, or are doing all your research from  
sources so grossly biased that the basic engineering explanation is  
not even mentioned.

Either way, explaining this to your satisfaction will be a waste of  
time on the part of the list.  There may have been a conspiracy, but  
the way the buildings collapsed provide no evidence of it.
