Actually neither the NIST nor the FEMA report say that, but hardly anyone actually takes the time to dig through what they actually said. They're still bullshit, but that wasn't their argument.

Care to enlighten?

NIST only sought to find the collapse initiation mechanism and blamed “sagging” trusses (actually deflected from expansion while held firmly in place on both ends, which should be a PUSHING force) pulling the exterior columns inward. The theory was debunked by their own physical tests which they then claimed were just calibrations for computer models. They never addressed anything about the dynamic portion of the collapse.

FEMA gave two completely contradictory mechanisms by suggesting both pushing out and pulling in perimeter columns by heated trusses, followed by the typical “pancake collapse” bullshit, but their report was just the preliminary one.
