9.11 investigation

7 problems with building 7

Building 7 is the third skyscraper that fell in NY on 9/11/01. The mainstream news doesn't mention it much. Wonder why?
1) No plane struck the 47-story World Trade Center skyscraper (Building 7). More on no plane:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-noplanest.html

2) No evidence of fires in Building 7 for the first 100 minutes after being struck by debris from Tower 1. (Yet fire from the debris is the official explanation for building collapse.) More on no fires:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-nofires.html

3) A free-fall drop of 2.25 sec. is finally officially acknowledged. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) lead investigator explained months earlier that, had there been free fall, there would have been no structural components below. More on freefall:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-freefall.html

4) No mainstream media covered the building collapse other than that first day, when Dan Rather said on network TV, "For the third time today, it's reminiscent of those pictures we've all seen too much... when a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down." More on Dan Rather:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-danrather.html

5) No mention of Building 7 in The 9/11 Commission Report. More on Commission:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-commissio.html

6) The New York Times characterized as "perhaps the deepest mystery in the investigation," a FEMA-report appendix about a steel specimen recovered from Building 7, rather like Swiss cheese, a product of extraordinarily high temperatures. More on FEMA:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-femaapped.html

7) No mention in the NIST Building 7 Final Report of this mysterious steel specimen. More on NIST:  http://7problemswithbuilding7.info/detail-nist-nosw.html

Stop wasting your time 17.Jul.2010 11:20


It's been 9 years since that's happened, and the information you're trying to spread has been out there equally as long. The people who are going to believe you already do, so what is the point even? Obviously government is corrupt, but sitting on your computer and attempting to expose it is such a futile effort. You speak of a problem and offer no solution beyond constant paranoia. Why not put your efforts towards revolutionary studies, direct actions, anarchism, etc. and actually try to dismantle the government you so actively mistrust?? If 911 was indeed an inside job, it wouldn't be the first instance of government corruption. Dwelling on the past is a waste of time- start thinking for the future and affecting the present.

I like to see the 911 information re-distributed (even though I know it myself in and out)
because many don't know much about it (truth) and "new readers come along all the time" who will have an open posting avenue to learn more.

So to continually discuss injustices [As in this newswire post] ....is paramount for change.... and that is "a voice"

"no justice no peace" is a slogan that to me reflects the need for loud voices until justice is achieved.

The events of 911 changed many things ...its the crux of most of the unjust ways we are now treating people here and around the world.

The suggestion for "put your efforts toward revolutionary ..... .."
Is - good information

The information about Building 7 was also 'good information'

I cant beleive this 18.Jul.2010 02:34

yeah, im serious

Are you people serious?

Do you realize how dumb you look with these stupid lies?

yes, lies....Your taking the word of a fucking theologian, a cold fusion expert and a few other non applicable experts over thousands of the worlds best experts in building collapse forensics...
Now i know none of you have served your country in the military or worked with explosives, but guess what....they are super fuckin loud.
that's right, its not like youtube....sorry kids. the amount of demo needed to blow just one column, yes just one, would have been audible for MILES. That is a fact. So showing a video of firemen, none of which agree with your lies, with an airbag blowing up in the background is not evidence of "bombs in the towers"
Not a single theory of speed, or gravity or anything else was broken...
stop lying. it wasnt an inside job. That's a fact and if this site had the balls to host it, i would debate anyone anywhere any day.

I served in the U.S. Coast Guard (before it became BP's private PR and security arm) and former governor Jesse Ventura served in the US Navy Seals *and* was an explosives expert. He has a new book out called "American Conspiracies" ... maybe you should read it. I was the one that reposted this information, because there are still thousands of people dying, including American service members, because of lies that have been given impetus by the events of 9-11-01.

Both "Gulf of Tonkin incident" and Israel's attack on the USS Liberty took place in the 1960's, before I was born. But they are not irrelevant. Because those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

9/11 -- "Ancient History" ... but darn it just Won't Stay Buried... 19.Jul.2010 22:21

A friend was trying to convince me that 9/11 was dead as a political issue, and then he got excited about the relatively new book on the J.F.K assasignation, "Kennedy: The Unspeakable." No, 9/11 is not dead. Not anymore than the Kennedy assasignation or the Vietnam war. Its nice that war criminals can never really sleep soundly and believe that they have pulled off their little plot cleanly. They may die of old age, but their children are still trying to cover-up the always unravelling details... just as seekers of truth and justice will continue to try and expose the culprits. And the culprits for 9/11, by the way, are not the without foreign accent Mr. M. Atta and his party-animals crew armed with box-cutters.

Conspiracy lunacy 21.Jul.2010 12:15

Yes, the Bush terrorist regime was bad, yes the regime committed war cxrime atrocities against humanity and yes, the regime committed treason against the United States.

However that does not mean you get to play pretend and try to make the Bush Christanic terrorism worse than it actually was. Playing pretend only makes you and actual progressives look like frothingly insane conspiracy loons.

Stick to the truth. Push for Bush and his fellow Christanic terrorists (that includes Obama) to be tried and executed for their *actual* crimes against humanity and treason against the United States.

Anything else is lunacy and hurts the cause of justice.

Interesting article- for Fredric 22.Jul.2010 16:56
