"I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse." –Larry Silverstein (2002 PBS Special – America Rebuilds)
For steel to be melted by fire is impossible. At 5:20 on 11th September 2001, WTC Building 7 collapsed in 6.5 seconds, from normal office fires according to the government. S Shyam Sunder, ScD was NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Lead Investigator and he claimed the Building Seven collapsed due to fire of office furnishing. This is how dumb they think we all are.
Later the government finally admitted that the building collapsed at the rate of freefall after trying to deny it.
So what’s wrong with a building falling at ‘freefall’? David Chandler 30-year maths and physics educator explains freefall “it’s like taking your car keys out and dropping them. That’s how fast the building came down. For over 100 feet”
According to Jonathan Smolensk P.E. (Professional Engineer)/ Structural Engineer “a building cannot do free fall with 40 thousand tonnes in it structural steel and structural system without it being blown up”
William Rice, P.E Civil/Structural engineer, 20-year Engineering Professor, Vermont Technical College, “the only way it can accelerate as it collapses is by having pre-engineered precisely timed and precisely placed explosives, in other words controlled demolition”
“…all of a sudden the radio exploded and people started screaming get away…I looked up and the thing (Building 7) started pealing in on itself…the whole time you’re hearing thump, thump, thump, (explosives sounds) I think I know an explosion when I hear it” Craig Bartmer, Former NYPD first responder, ground zero worker. “That didn’t sound like just a building falling down, when I was running away from it…There is a lot of eyewitness testimony down there of people hearing explosions, I didn’t see any reason for that building to fall down the way it did, and a lot of guys should be saying the same thing”
Interview with first responder Indira Singh on ‘Guns and Butter’ 27th April 2005 on KPFA in Berkeley “All I can attest to is that by noon we had to move from that triage site up to Pace University a little further away because Building 7 was going come down or being brought down”
Interviewer asks “Did they actually use the word “Brought” down and who was it that was telling you this?”
Singh “The fire department… The fire department and they did use the word “We’re going to have to bring it down.””
In the hours before the collapse there is footage of numerous police and fire department members saying too many people in the vicinity move away, were going to bring the building down or the building will be coming down.
Eyewitness says “…he (a police officer) came back over with his hand over the radio and what sounded like a countdown at the last seconds he took his hand off and you heard, three, two, one, then said just run for your lives… and then it was like another two or three seconds, you heard explosions like boom, it was a distinct sound…to me I knew that was an explosion, there is no doubt in my mind”
Scott Grainger P.E. Forensic Fire Protection Engineer “High rise buildings do not just collapse due to fire. There has never been until 911 and experience where a high rise building that was steel framed completely collapsed” “There have been fire fires burn longer in similar structures without any collapse”
Jonathan Barnett, Ph.D. Professor, Worcester Polytechnic Institute “…normal fires are not hot enough to melt steel… even if you used kerosene you cannot achieve temperatures hot enough to melt steel” in a test done by Barnett in 1996, they burnt a building using inflammatory devices however the steel beams didn’t collapse they just slowly warped.
In 1991, Philadelphia the 38-story steel-framed Meridian Bank building burned for 18-hours without collapsing.
Kathy McGrade B.S (Bachelor of Science) Metallurgical Engineer says “The symmetry is the smoking gun, it cannot happen that when you have asymmetric damage you will get a perfectly symmetrical collapse” By this she means that Building Seven was full of random ‘spot’ fires, there was no symmetry to it.
Kamal Obeid S.E, 30 years of engineering practice “the column on the inside and outside would have to severed at the exact same time”
Tom Sullivan was an Explosives Technician for Controlled Demolition, Inc. – the top rated demolitions firm in the world. His job was to place explosives in the building to prepare them for demolition. “What I saw was a classic implosion, the centre of the core, the penthouse area starts to move first and then the building follows along with it what’s another indicator that the NIST report is very suspect”
Scott Grainger “According to NIST the failure occurred at column 79 on level 12… there talking about a single column collapse that resulted in the total collapse of the building that just doesn’t make any sense”
NIST went out of their way to not investigate the use of explosives. The soul justification for this was “There were no witness reports of such a loud noise, nor was such a loud noise heard on audio tracks of video tapes that recorded the WTC7 collapse.” NIST Final Report – Page.401
Yet there were numerous reports by bystanders of explosions. And numerous video and audio of explosions. It was even reported on the news that they heard explosions. Ashley Banfield was conducting an interview for MSNBC her microphone was set to pick up just the voice of herself and the person she was talking to. From the involuntary reaction of herself and all the people around her it was clear that an explosion had just taken place.
When you listen to the recording you can hear two blasts followed by seven consecutive blasts all in 2.5 seconds. The building hasn’t fallen yet though therefore the blasts were heard seconds before the building fell. When Ashley Banfield says “This is it” seconds before the building comes down, it is because she had previously been told the building was going to come down. She reports the said heard several reports from several officers “That is the building that is going to go down next.”
Back in the studio anchor Brian Williams says words to the affect of “this what we’ve been expecting all day” he then speaks on the phone to NYC Fire Department Lieutenant David Rastuccio saying “can you confirm that was WTC Building 7 that just went in?” Rastuccio then confirms this, to which Williams replies “You guys knew this was coming all day.” Rastuccio then responds “We had heard reports that the building was unstable and that eventually it would come down on its own, or it would be taken down.”
Those in control of the story were planting the official narrative in our minds in real time as events unfolded using the media and even the fire and police departments as unwitting agents.
Larry Silverstein had the building reinforced beyond its requirements to accommodate needs of its main tenant Solomon Brothers. From The New York Times 19th February 1989 we read “Solomon Brother… intends to spend nearly two years and more than $200 million cutting out floors, adding elevators, reinforcing steel girders upgrading power supplies and making its million square feet of space”
“We built in enough redundancy to allow entire portions of floors to be removed without affecting the building’s structural integrity” said Larry Silverstein, president of the company. “More than 375 tons of steel – requiring 12 miles of welding will be installed to reinforce floors for Solomon’s extra equipment.”
If there was one sky scraper in the world that shouldn’t have collapsed due to fire it was Building 7.
Building 7 also housed New York City’s emergency operation centre, known as Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s bunker.
Building 7 also housed offices for The CIA, Salomon Smith Barney, IRS Regional Council, US Secret Service, The Department of Defence, American Express Bank International, Standard Chartered Bank, Provident Financial Management, Hartford Insurance Group, First State Management Group Inc. Federal Home Loan Bank, NAIC Securities, Securities and Exchange Commission.
WTC Buildings, 3, 4, 5, 6 were closer to the WTC Buildings 1 and 2 there damage was much worse than building 7 yet they didn’t collapse. Somehow rescue worker knew that building 7 was going to collapse.
Why building 7? As WTC command centre was it the hub of the 911 plan? Also in six and half seconds lost forever was thousands of SEC case files on corporate fraud. Including those related to giants WorldCom and Enron a few indictments for stock fraud. What of the 70 billion dollar California electricity swindle just disappeared.
Jane Stanley of the BBC reported on the collapse of Building seven live on television, however in the background of the picture you can still clearly see building seven standing. After realising what was going on the BBC suddenly lost their link with Jane Stanley?
There were only flames coming from a few floor in building 7, compared to other office fires these are small, why didn’t the sprinkler system put then out? There were no fires anywhere along the base of the building. Both buildings 5 & 6 had very serious fires burning inside yet they didn’t fall.
