The Mysterious and Under-reported Collapse of World Trade Center Building Seven
WTC 7 was a huge office building a few blocks away from the twin towers. WTC 7 was not hit
by an airplane on September 11, 2001, yet it mysteriously collapsed that afternoon, for no apparent
reason. The incident was only briefly mentioned in the news media on September 11 and 12, and
was never mentioned again. As in so many other cases, the official explanation doesn't make any
sense to anyone who examines the facts. The implosion of WTC-7 is the most obvious examples of
a news story going immediately down the "memory hole" into news media oblivion, with no questions asked,
then or now.
Here's the bottom line: If WTC Building 7 was professionally imploded, the other two
buildings that collapsed (straight down) on September 11, 2001, can also be presumed to have been
professionally imploded. And if the official explanation of WTC-7 is obviously a pack of lies,
then the rest of the official 9/11 story needs to be questioned, too.
Pentagon Fails Another Audit — Trillions Missing. They say the Pentagon is
the government's favorite money laundering tool for a reason. It is comical that they even
attempt to audit the Pentagon when they know the agency will fail miserably. The government
spent $187 million to conduct the meaningless audit at 700 locations. This year, as with
the year prior, only 7 of the 29 sub-audits passed. HALF of the claimed assets were nowhere
to be found by the 1,600 hired auditors. How does trillions of dollars disappear?
Trillions have gone missing since pre-9/11. There is no ongoing investigation into finding the
whereabouts of these funds that belong to taxpaying citizens. The September 11, 2001,
attack occurred one day after former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld sounded the alarm bells
and notified the public that $2.3 trillion in transactions could not be traced. The WTC7
demolition on 9/11 destroyed the room where the Pentagon audit was taking place and also happened
to be the location of my computer system. I received from the SEC explaining that everything
had simply been destroyed and no further questions were permitted.
Challenging the Government's Building 7 Narrative Going Mainstream? Disputing the
strictly enforced false consensus surrounding the events of 9/11 has long been a third rail in
American politics. Anyone who broaches the topic with even the mildest skepticism of the
government's mythology about that day immediately disqualifies himself from polite society.
There is almost no narrative, save for perhaps the one related to the Holocaust, that is more
strictly enforced through social pressure, shaming, and, of course, outright censorship. But,
long overdue as it is, it appears the dam may be breaking.
7 Implosion: The Smoking Gun of 9/11. Although it received little media attention at
the time, the third-worst structural building failure in modern history occurred on September 11,
2001. World Trade Center (WTC) Building 7 was a 47-story, steel-framed, fire-protected, high-rise
office building located about a football field's length from the WTC North Tower. Unlike its
two taller cousins, WTC 7 was never hit by an aircraft, yet it fell to the ground suddenly,
displaying the classic signatures of explosive controlled demolition. The evidence (discussed
in this article) was ignored, mishandled, and/or covered up by the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST), the federal agency tasked with explaining its unprecedented destruction.
Described Explosions On 9/11. The widely held belief that the Twin Towers collapsed as a result of the airplane
impacts and the resulting fires is, unbeknownst to most people, a revisionist theory. Among individuals who witnessed
the event firsthand, the more prevalent hypothesis was that the Twin Towers had been brought down by massive
explosions. This observation was first made 14 years ago in the article, "118 Witnesses: The Firefighters'
Testimony to Explosions in the Twin Towers." A review of interviews conducted with 503 members of the New York Fire
Department (FDNY) in the weeks and months after 9/11 revealed that 118 of them described witnessing what they interpreted
that day to be explosions. Only 10 FDNY members were found describing the destruction in ways supportive of the
fire-induced collapse hypothesis.
Anchor Who Was At Ground Zero Admits Building 7 Was Brought Down In 'Controlled Implosion'. On September 11,
2001, at 5:20 p.m., World Trade Center Building 7 suddenly collapsed into its own footprint, falling at free fall speed for
2.5 seconds of its seven-second complete destruction. WTC 7 was not hit by a plane. After it collapsed, Americans
were told that office fires caused a unique — never before seen — complete architectural failure leading to the
building collapsing into its own footprint at the rate of gravity. For more than a decade, many Americans never even knew WTC 7
fell — up to and including the person who was Secretary of Defense when the towers came down, Donald Rumsfeld. [...] Amazingly,
some folks still believe that only two towers fell that fateful day back in September 2011. The fact that Tower 7, a
47-story building, collapsed, was but a small blip in the media. Since 9/11, World Trade Center Tower 7 is rarely, if
at all, mentioned in the mainstream media. However, all that now appears to be changing thanks to the persistence of
thousands of dedicated individuals who've devoted large portions of their lives to making sure this information gets out there.
The continuous flow of information about how or what caused Tower 7 to collapse into its own footprint has become so vast that
it is impossible to ignore. In fact, the mainstream media has now jumped on the bandwagon and what some of them are saying is
nothing short of bombshell.
How Did the Perpetrators
Do 9/11? The narrative under attack basically derives from the 585 page 9/11 Commission Report and from both
media coverage and government press releases near the time of the event and ever since. The basic government approved
narrative goes like this: [...] Building 7, which was not struck by a plane, caught fire from the falling debris from the
nearby World Trade Center towers and the flames spread to such an extent that it had to be demolished to prevent endangering
other adjacent buildings. In support of the alternative theory that the buildings were brought down by controlled
demolition type explosions is the lack of any serious forensic analysis of the fragments of masonry and steel. The
debris was picked up hurriedly and dumped at sea and abroad where it could not be subjected to chemical examination.
That fact alone smacks of conspiracy.
Lee says he believes 9/11 conspiracy theory: 'I got questions'. Spike Lee is living up to his outspoken
reputation again. [...] The incendiary remarks started when Times reporter Reggie Ugwu called Lee out for featuring several
members of the conspiracy group Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth in his series, as its members have infamously suggested
that government officials were somehow involved in the World Trade Center collapse. "The amount of heat that it takes
to make steel melt, that temperature's not reached," Lee said. "And then the juxtaposition of the way Building 7 fell
to the ground — when you put it next to other building collapses that were demolitions, it's like you're looking
at the same thing." He continued, "But people going to make up their own mind. My approach is put the information
in the movie and let people decide for themselves. I respect the intelligence of the audience."
Proves Government Wrong on 9/11 and 3rd Building Collapse. Scientists at the University of Alaska conducted a
$300,000 study which proves that the government's conclusions provided by NIST about what happened on 9/11 are wrong.
"A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse of World Trade Center 7" was released after more than 4 years of research
and provides a much better explanation of what actually happened. [Video clip]
Later, Physics Magazine Concludes: All 3 WTC Towers Collapsed Due to Controlled Demolition. Over the past
15 years many highly respected academics and experts have come forward to challenge the official narrative on the collapse of
the WTC towers forwarded by the U.S. government. The official government position holds that the collapse of all three
towers was due to intense heat inside of the buildings. But a new forensic investigation into the collapse of the three
World Trade Center towers on 9/11, published in Europhysics News — a highly respected European physics
magazine — claims that "the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were
destroyed by controlled demolition."
Did World Trade Center Building 7 Fall? New Study Claims Gov't Story Is False. Last Wednesday [9/6/2017],
Dr. J. Leroy Hulsey of the University of Alaska Fairbanks presented the findings and conclusion of his team's two-year
engineering study evaluating whether fire caused the collapse of World Trade Center 7 on September 11, 2001. Many "9/11
Truth" researchers focus on the mysterious collapse of World Trade Center 7 (WTC7) as the smoking gun evidence that Americans
were lied to about the attacks. WTC7 was not hit by a plane, yet it collapsed at 5:20 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2001.
According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the collapse was caused by office fires leading to thermal expansion
of the building's supportive columns and girders. Dr. Hulsey's presentation, "A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse
of World Trade Center 7, September 2017 Progress Report", detailed how his team eliminated fire as the cause of the collapse
of the 47-storey building. Hulsey explained that NIST's report on the collapse found fires on floors 7 through 9, 11 through
14, 19, 22, 29, and 30. However, there is no evidence of fire below floor 7, Hulsey said. [Video clip]
The Editor says...
[#1] I don't believe the NIST report, after seeing this video.
[#2] What was burning in WTC7? It wasn't jet fuel. It was carpeting and office furniture. Was the carpeting
not flame-retardant? Was there no sprinkler system? If the highest floor with a fire was Floor 30, wouldn't Floors 31
through 47 have remained intact? What are the chances that the whole building would drop straight down onto its own footprint, and
crumble into millions of pieces, unless the building was professionally imploded? [#3] If one accepts that WTC7 was professionally
imploded, and collapsed straight down in millions of pieces, one can easily surmise that the Twin Towers were imploded, too.
That is why nobody wants to talk about WTC7.
9/11 an inside job? Call for truth over Building 7 collapse on eve of 15th anniversary. Some claim there
must have been a "controlled detonation" at ground level for the Twin Towers to fall in on themselves as they did. One
key part of their argument is the collapse of a third smaller tower, called Building 7, at the World Trade Centre complex,
several hours after the huge skyscrapers fell. Yesterday [9/8/2016], the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance held
its 12th annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival, where the British documentary Incontrovertible was screened. The online film
by Tony Rooke looks at why Building 7 collapsed in the way that it did and the official explanation given after an
investigation by the The National Institute of Standards and Technology, based near Washington DC, who still refuses to
release all of its data amid claims it could "compromise public safety".
Declassified Pages Do Nothing To Explain Implausibility Of 9/11 Official Story. [Scroll down] Questions still remain as to
why WTC building number 7 fell when no plane had hit the building and was only infected with mild office fires. The 28 Pages
do nothing to explain the contradiction between the official explanation of how the towers fell and how they actually fell on the morning of
9/11. The American public was told by the 9/11 Commission to believe that the buildings collapsed under gravity from structural failure due
mainly to fires initiated by the impacts of the airplanes. But as many experts have pointed out, this is highly unlikely considering the
spread of debris that occurred in a massive radius around the towers and the obvious pulverization of the buildings' make-up. "Large multi-ton
beams were hurled hundreds of yards laterally, gravity works vertically not laterally," explains Jody Gibbs, a 35-year architect and member of
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The thousands of experts with Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth are quick to point out
that the manner in which the WTC buildings fell and the ejections of pieces of the buildings exhibit all the signs of a demolition.
An extremely rare mention of WTC Building 7, eleven years after it imploded: Judge Rules United Not Liable for
9/11 Collapse. The plaintiff in the case, Larry Silverstein, the leaseholder of the World Trade Center property, claimed that the
collapse of 7 World Trade Center stemmed from airport security lapses that allowed hijackers to crash an American Airlines plane into the
complex. [...] Tower 7 collapsed several hours after being pierced by debris from the crash of American Airlines Flight 11 into the
nearby 1 World Trade Center.
Jowenko is Dead, 3 Days After Sabrosky Interview. Demolition expert Danny Jowenko, one of world's
leading building demolition experts, was killed in a one-car accident last week when his car slammed into a
tree. Jowenko received international attention as the expert who unequivocally described the collapse
of Building 7 at the World Trade Center on 911 as a "demolition." Jowenko made the judgment before he
knew it was WTC7 he was watching on the video. He commented: "This is a controlled demolition
which was carried out by a team of experts."
The Editor says...
If Building 7 was imploded by demolition experts, the other two buildings probably were, too.
Danny Jowenko, 1955-2011: How a Demolition
Expert Brought Explosive Attention to 9/11 Truth. "It starts from below... They have simply blown away
columns." "This is controlled demolition." "A team of experts did this." These startling words, spoken by
controlled demolition expert Danny Jowenko in 2006, ignited an international discussion over the destruction of WTC Building 7,
and added to the professional voices at AE911Truth who have challenged the official explanation. As we mourn Jowenko's
tragic death on July 16, we look back at how his impromptu interview shed light onto one of the greatest mysteries of the
9/11 catastrophe. Jowenko was the owner of Jowenko Explosieve Demolitie, a controlled demolitions company headquartered
in the Netherlands. He had over 30 years of building demolition experience, and his knowledge of explosives was so
respected that he was sought as a contributor to the ImplosionWorld production of "A History of Structural Demolition in America".
Dutch Demolition Expert Danny Jowenko Dies In "Car Crash". WTC7 according to Danny Jowenko was absolutely
brought down by a controlled demolition. The accident of prominent Dutch "demolition expert" Danny Jowenko is of
special interest to us, because on July 13th 2011 in an exclusive Press TV interview, Dr. Alan Sabrosky, Veterans Today
board member and editor, specifically drew attention to the Dutch demolition expert, Danny Jowenko, stating that two years
ago, he came across an extremely disturbing video in which Danny Jowenko was interviewed concerning the collapse on 9/11, of
a 3rd World Trade Center building. WTC7, a 47 storey building, the third tallest building, which was not hit by a
plane, which was conspicuously missing in the 9/11 commission report and which according to Danny Jowenko was absolutely
brought down by a controlled demolition. "That is, WTC-7 went straight down into its own footprint in seconds without any
visible external trauma, which means only some catastrophic internal trauma could have brought it down, concluded Sabrosky."
He has repeatedly cited the well known demolition experts' views and interview in his recent articles and interviews.
Jowenko is Dead, 3 Days After Sabrosky Interview Implicates CIA/Mossad in 911. Demolition expert Danny Jowenko,
one of world's leading building demolition experts, was killed in a one-car accident last week when his car slammed into a
tree. Jowenko received international attention as the expert who unequivocally described the collapse of Building 7 at
the World Trade Center on 911 as a "demolition." Jowenko made the judgment before he knew it was WTC7 he was watching on
the video. He commented: "This is a controlled demolition which was carried out by a team of experts."
Who Concluded WTC 7 Was A Controlled Demolition Killed In Car Accident. In 2007 reports began to
circulate that Jowenko had retracted his stance on the footage of WTC7, however, he reaffirmed his previous
opinion in a phone call with blogger Jeff Hill, noting "When the FEMA makes a report that it came down by fire,
and you have to earn your money in the States as a controlled demolition company and you say, 'No, it was a
controlled demolition', you're gone. You know?"
9/11 Debunking. All but the most dogmatic readers will find Griffin's evidence — from the
inconsistencies between NORAD tapes and the 9/11 Commission Report to rigorous exploration into the physics of the
collapse — detailed and deeply unnerving. For instance, Griffin considers the fact that firefighters were told,
five hours before the fact, that building WTC 7 was going to collapse, despite "the fact that WTC 7 was not
hit by a plane, that the available photographs show no large fires, and that fire had never caused a steel-frame
high-rise to collapse."
Stop Belittling the Theories About September 11.
The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center almost certainly did not collapse and fall to earth because
hijacked aircraft hit them. A plane did not hit Building 7 of the Center, which also collapsed.
All three were most probably destroyed by controlled demolition charges placed in the buildings before 9/11.
A substantial volume of evidence shows that typical residues and byproducts from such demolition charges were present
in the three buildings after they collapsed. The quality of the research done on this subject is quite impressive.
Millions call for an independent 9/11 investigation.
Did fire alone pulverize three steel-framed buildings at the World Trade Center? This would be the first time
in history that steel-framed buildings have completely collapsed due to fire. Especially puzzling is the fact
that Building 7 collapsed even though it was never hit by an aircraft. Could a Boeing 757 disappear in a
hole in the Pentagon smaller than the size of the plane itself? How did engines weighing several tons vanish?
This would be the first time in the history of airline crashes that engines disintegrated.
Video: The Top four Unanswered
Questions About 9-11. This video highlights four of the most obvious questions that still, after all
these years, remain unanswered and totally ignored by our government. They refuse to answer them. There is no
good reason for not doing so. It speaks volumes about what kind of people we have running our government.
Foreknowledge of WTC 7's Collapse: At least
two television networks made premature announcements of the collapse of WTC 7. The BBC unequivocally
announced the collapse about 23 minutes before the fact, and even featured a New York correspondent speaking
of the collapse in past tense with the still-erect skyscraper standing behind her.
AE911Truth press conference to take place in Austin, TX.
Architect and AE911Truth petition signer Ron Avery, along with fellow supporters, will show the video of the
original AE911Truth 80 minute Press Conference that was held in San Francisco on 2/19/10. Ron will
give his own presentation as an architect concerning the construction and destruction of the WTC Twin Towers
and how limited damage to 5 floors on each building is insufficient to collapse 110 floors of such
1000 architects and engineers have signed petition to reinvestigate 9-11 destruction. Architects
and Engineers for 9-11 Truth founder, Richard Gage, AIA, began the conference quoting Mark Twain who said, "If
you don't read the newspapers you're uninformed. If you do read them you're misinformed." Gage said
he hoped the assembled press would help to rectify that situation. "Today I'm quite pleased to announce
that now we have more than one thousand architects and engineers signed on to the A&E911Truth petition demanding
of Congress a new and truly independent, unimpeachable investigation into the destruction of the three World
Trade Center skyscrapers on 9-11," Gage said to a cheering audience.
WTC 7: A short computation.
I provide a short computation, focused on World Trade Center building 7. Based on very favorable
assumptions for achieving a fast fall, including ignoring resistance due to intact steel columns, I could only
get the building to fall in about 8.3 seconds, whereas the observed roof-fall time is approximately
6.5 seconds. The problem is the large number of floors and conservation of momentum in a
collision. Some of the "official" explanations about progressive collapse are evocative but
they do not explain the difficulty in the rapid fall of the building along with what is evidently
taking place when the video of the falling building is observed.
911 Blogger: 911blogger.com started out by filling a void in the
blogger community by covering 9/11 related alternative news. There are now plenty of blogs that do this.
911blogger will continue to cover 9/11 related news, but will now broaden its mandate to cover similar events
in recent, and not-so-recent history, like the OKC bombing, the 1993 WTC bombing, and the assassinations of
high profile figures in the 1960s, in order to educate people new to the issues raised in such dramatic
fashion on 9/11.
Explosives Found in World
Trade Center Dust. Backers of the official account of 9/11, including NIST officials, have
dismissed evidence that aluminothermics were used to destroy the World Trade Center skyscrapers, claiming
that thermite's slow reaction rate makes it an unsuitable tool for demolishing buildings. Despite
repeated requests by scientists and researchers to address the potential role of advanced aluminothermic
composites with high explosive power, officials have refused to acknowledge such materials.
Four Integrity Tests for President Obama.
The nationwide 9/11 truth movement is alive and well, because the vast majority of Americans still have many
doubts about the official stories of what happened on 9/11, especially when it comes to the sudden collapse of
three World Trade Center buildings, one of which was not even hit by an airplane. Countless scientists,
engineers and architects have seriously examined mountains of data and evidence and come to the disheartening
conclusion that something besides the official story must explain what happened.
Answers WTC Building 7 Charges. Building 7 became only the third steel building in history

buildings were constructed using the same bridge beam system that, in WTC 7's case, allegedly
contributed to its demise. But more importantly WTC 7, like the Murrah building, housed
high-level government offices including the FBI, CIA and the Secret Service. WTC 7 was
also the storage facility for millions of files pertaining to active cases involving international
drug dealing, organized crime, terrorism and money laundering.
The Editor says...
More people are starting to ask questions about Building 7. And if it's true that
Building 7 was imploded, questions arise about the Twin Towers as well. Keep reading.
Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings
Collapse? In this paper, I call for a serious investigation of the hypothesis that WTC 7 and
the Twin Towers were brought down, not just by impact damage and fires, but through the use of pre-positioned
cutter-charges. I consider the official FEMA, NIST, and 9-11 Commission reports that fires plus impact
damage alone caused complete collapses of all three buildings. And I present evidence for the
controlled-demolition hypothesis, which is suggested by the available data, testable and falsifiable,
and yet has not been analyzed in any of the reports funded by the US government.

Truth. Two more major influential Hollywood stars using their fame to attract attention to 9/11

Streisand's hubby publicly questions official
9/11 story. Actor James Brolin, aka, 'Mr. Barbra Streisand', has joined film director David Lynch
in going public with his doubts about the official story behind 9/11. … Brolin offered no reason as to
why he waited five years and three months to publicly question the official story behind 9/11, or why he
followed in the footsteps of Lynch on the same day.
The Investigation of Building 7's Collapse: What
did the government do to investigate the unprecedented collapse of a steel frame building from fires? It
gave FEMA the sole discretion to investigate the collapse, even though FEMA is not an investigative agency.
Building 7. was the third skyscraper to be reduced to rubble
on September 11, 2001. According to the government, fires, primarily, leveled this building, but
fires have never before or since destroyed a steel skyscraper. The team that investigated the collapse
were kept away from the crime scene. By the time they published their inconclusive report in
May, 2002, the evidence had been destroyed.
Five Years After and We Still Don't Know.
There appears to be a very large energy deficit in the official explanation of the collapse of the two WTC
towers, and no explanation for the collapse of WTC 7.
Building 7 Collapse: At
5:22 p.m. on September 11th, 2001, the 47 story building number 7 of the World Trade
Center Plaza came down in slightly over 8 seconds. The building had not been hit by any
plane, nor sustained any significant damage from the "collapse" of the Twin Towers seven hours earlier,
nor was there any major fire in the building at the time. The video clearly show that it was
brought down as result of a synchronized demolition.
WTC 7: Building 7 was the third skyscraper to
collapse into rubble on September 11, 2001. According to the government, small fires leveled
this building, but fires have never before or since destroyed a steel skyscraper.
Indications add up to government
conspiracy. The collapse of steel-frame buildings — such as the World Trade Center
Towers — due to fire is unprecedented. The collapse of Building 7, which was not hit by
a plane, is especially inexplicable. Its collapse late in the afternoon of Sept. 11 exhibited 10
specific features of a controlled demolition, as did the collapse of the Twin Towers. More important,
numerous eyewitnesses attest to hearing multiple explosions at the time. And, Steven Jones, a professor
at Brigham Young University, discovered Thermate, an incendiary compound, in two molten steel samples taken
from the site.
BYU Professor on Paid Leave for 9-11
Theory. Brigham Young University administrators are trying to find out the extent of one
professor's involvement in blaming the September 11th terrorist attacks on the government. According
to a copyrighted Deseret Morning News article, Dr. Steven Jones is on paid leave for suggesting the
government is responsible for the destruction of the World Trade Center.
On the other hand... The CIA couldn't
have organised this. Five years after the attack on the World Trade Centre, a group of 75
American academics is claiming that the truth about 9/11 has been covered up. The leader of the
group — Steven E. Jones, a physics professor at a university in Utah — has
studied debris from the disaster and concluded that explosives were used to bring down the towers.
Did the Twin Towers Collapse on Demand? When
considering the possibility that the Twin Towers were brought down by explosives there is an interesting
variation which is worth considering: What if the Twin Towers were designed — or
re-engineered — so that they could be destroyed in a controlled demolition if circumstances
Other WTC Building Collapses: WTC 6
and WTC 7. WTC 7, although damaged slightly by falling rubble, stood for about six
hours on September 11th, then around 5 p.m. it suddenly fell. No official explanation for this has
ever been given. This building was completely destroyed, and came down in the manner of a controlled
demolition. … [I]t is the manner in which WTC 7 was destroyed that constitutes one of the proofs that
9/11 was an inside job. Videos of its destruction clearly show that it came down exactly in the manner
of a controlled demolition. This cannot have been the work of 19 Arab hijackers, nor of Osama bin Laden
supervising events from his cave in Afghanistan. The destruction of WTC 7 was brought about by
demolition experts — American demolition experts.
The Mysterious Leveling of
Building 7. At 5:20 PM on 9/11/01 the only building with a World Trade Center address that stood
on a different block from the rest of the complex, 47-story steel-framed 7 World Trade Center, underwent a
sudden total collapse. Officials and all government reports published since the attack that mention
the building blame its collapse on a combination of structural damage and subsequent fires. However,
the available evidence on the condition of Building 7 prior to its collapse fails to document more than
superficial structural damage and small isolated fires.
Silverstein, FDNY Razed WTC 7.
Those who argue that the towers were vulnerable in their top-heaviness and verticality cannot then explain the
collapse due to fire of WTC 7, a broad-based, 47-story steel-framed building. … In addition,
WTC 7 suffered a strangely thorough and complete collapse, leaving only a leveled lot where it
once stood. … There [are] also disturbing correlations between the collapse of WTC 7 and the
bombing of the Murrah building in Oklahoma City. … WTC 7 was also the storage facility for
millions of files pertaining to active cases involving international drug dealing, organized crime,
terrorism and money laundering.
Robert Fisk: Even I question the 'truth'
about 9/11. What about the third tower — the so-called World Trade Centre Building 7 (or
the Salmon Brothers Building) — which collapsed in 6.6 seconds in its own footprint at 5.20pm on
11 September? Why did it so neatly fall to the ground when no aircraft had hit it? The
American National Institute of Standards and Technology was instructed to analyse the cause of the
destruction of all three buildings. They have not yet reported on WTC 7.
adds fuel to 9/11 conspiracy theories. The investigation into the "mysterious" collapse of the
third tower of the World Trade Centre will re-examine questions which an official inquiry was designed to
answer. The 47-storey tower collapsed seven hours after the Twin Towers and has become the subject of
heated speculation and a host of conspiracy theories which suggest it was brought down by a controlled
demolition. A BBC investigation points out that this would be the first and only skyscraper in the
world to collapse solely due to fire.
Says Fire, Not Explosion, Felled 7 W.T.C.. The collapse of 7 World Trade Center — home
at the time to branch offices of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service and the Giuliani
administration's emergency operations center — is cited in hundreds of Web sites and books
as perhaps the most compelling evidence that an insider secretly planted explosives, intentionally
destroying the tower.
Fires took down building next to twin towers. The building has been the subject of a wide range
of conspiracy theories for the last seven years, partly because the collapse occurred about seven hours after
the twin towers came down. That fueled suspicion that someone intentionally blew up the building in a
controlled demolition. Critics like Mike Berger of the group 9/11 Truth said he wasn't buying the
government's explanation. "Their explanation simply isn't sufficient. We're being lied to," he
said, arguing that there is other evidence suggesting explosives were used on the building.
Improbable Collapse: On September 11, 2001
the World Trade Center Twin Towers disintegrated in a manner that scientists say resembled deliberately
calculated implosions. The facts open for discussion include: at 5:20 p.m. that same day
another building, the 47 story WTC 7, completely collapsed within 70 feet of its footprint
in 6.6 seconds. These three buildings became the first such structures to ever suffer complete
collapse due to fire and damage.
Rebuttal: WTC 7 Collapse investigated by
Popular Mechanics. Many conspiracy theorists point to FEMA's preliminary report, which said there was
relatively light damage to WTC 7 prior to its collapse. With the benefit of more time and resources, NIST
researchers now support the working hypothesis that WTC 7 was far more compromised by falling debris than the
FEMA report indicated.
Ventura questions the WTC collapse. Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who during the
Vietnam War was part of the Navy's Underwater Demolition Team, claims that the World Trade Center's
fall was part of a government plot.
