WTC Tower 7 Report Raises Real Questions
WTC Tower 7 Report Raises Real QuestionsFollow @KnightsTempOrg
We have long looked with disdain at the plethora of frankly absurd conspiracy theories that swirl around the 9/11 tragedy. Many of them are patent nonsense, but growing popular distrust of the fake news media and habitually dishonest authorities has led more and more people to the point where they believe everything bad they read about the Powers That Be. So far has this sense of alienation gone that many people manage to subscribe to several mutually contradictory 'conspiracy theories' at the same time.
Yet a new report, dealing with the previously inexplicable 9/11 collapse of World Trade Center Tower 7, forces us to the very reluctant conclusion that there is indeed something very wrong with the official account of that part of the disaster. Repulbican veteran and former Reagan-era staffer Dr. Paul Craig Roberts takes up the story:
The University of Alaska and Nanjing’ presentation of the findings from a four year investigation into what happened in the collapse of Building 7, World Trade Center, 2001 is revealing.
No planes were flown into this particular building, yet it collapsed just like the airplane-attacked two high risers.
Their findings is that fire did not cause the collapse, but a near simultaneously collapse of every column in the building.
As the article below shows, the 9/11 Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District stated, at the time, that pre-planted explosives —not just airplanes and the ensuing fires—caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings, killing the vast majority of the victims who perished that day.
A research team at the University of Alaska’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, led by Dr. Leroy Hulsey, Dr. Zhili Quan, and Professor Feng Xiao, Department of Civil Engineering, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, recently released for public comment their findings from a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11, 2001. This is the first scientific investigation of the collapse of the building.
Here is the conclusion: “The principal conclusion of our study is that fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”
Notice three things:
(1) it has taken 18 years to get a real investigation of the destruction of a building blamed on Muslim terrorists.
(2) the only way “near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building” can occur is through controlled demolition.
(3) this remarkable finding is not reported in the presstitute media.
Note this resolution of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District:
"Whereas, the attacks of September 11, 2001, are inextricably and forever tied to the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department;
"Whereas, on 9/11, 2001, while operating at the World Trade Center in New York City, firefighter Thomas J. Hetzel, badge #290 of Hook and Ladder Company #1, Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department of New York, was killed in performance of his duties, along with 2,976 other emergency responders and civilians;
"Whereas, members of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department were called upon to assist in the subsequent rescue and recovery operations and cleanup of the World Trade Center site, afflicting many of them with life-threatening illnesses as a result of breathing the deadly toxins present at the site;
"Whereas, the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District recognizes the significant and compelling nature of the petition before the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York reporting un-prosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and calling upon the United States Attorney to present that petition to a Special Grand Jury pursuant to the United States Constitution and 18 U.S.C. SS 3332(A);
"Whereas, the overwhelming evidence presented in said petition demonstrates beyond any doubt that pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries—not just airplanes and the ensuing fires—caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings, killing the vast majority of the victims who perished that day;
"Whereas, the victims of 9/11, their families, the people of New York City, and our nation deserve that every crime related to the attacks of September 11, 2001, be investigated to the fullest and that every person who was responsible face justice;
"NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District fully supports a comprehensive federal grand jury investigation and prosecution of every crime related to the attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as any and all efforts by other government entities to investigate and uncover the full truth surrounding the events of that horrible day."
So there it is. Not some 'conspiracy theory' by ignorant know-nothings, but an expert analysis by the civil engineering departments of two major universities, and a plea for a proper investigation by the Fire Department which lost so many many men on that terrible day.
We do not pretend to know the truth about 9/11, but this makes it clear that we are not being told the truth about at least part of what happened that day. And since the destruction of Tower 7 took place without the airplane attacks and fires which brought down the Twin Towers, there are surely questions to ask and answer about the fact that they collapsed in exactly the same way.
We are NOT saying that the collapse of Tower 7 was certainly caused by explosives, for that is not what the new report says. 'All' it says is that the collapse was not the result of the fire, but of "global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building". The question of why that happened is yet to be answered - which is why a proper investigation is needed. It could have been caused by demolition charges, but - although Dr. Roberts assumes that demolition charges are the only explanation - it could also have been caused by a mafia scam during the building of the WTC. Vast amounts of money could have been raked in by cutting down the quantity and quality of construction materials, particularly cement and steel. The point is that we do not know; all we know is that the new report seriously calls into question the official explanation for the collapse of Tower 7, which automatically casts doubt on the official explanation for the identical collapse of the Twin Towers.
We apologise if this offends or upsets anyone, but our habit and duty is to tell the truth - even when it is truly inconvenient - and to ask searching questions - even if some people would rather they be left unasked. Hence we are compelled to agree with the Board of Fire Commissioners, a comprehensive federal grand jury investigation is now the only way to settle the issue.
