This is what I remember
A Muslim cleric was put on trial for the twin towers bombing. I don't know if anyone remembers this or not. But they parked a van full of explosives
in the basement in the south west corner. Being a bit of an armature architect I analyzed the placement. My conclusion was this. The plan was to cause
the tower to fall across New York city leaving a massive footprint of destruction. One as long as the tower was tall.
The van was parked in that one particular corner of the basement on purpose. The plan was to take out that corner and cause the towers to fall in a
south west direction rather like felling a tree. Maybe even aiming for some other building to drop the towers on.
So... just what was
south west of the towers?
World Financial Center, is a shopping center and office-building complex located across West Street from the World Trade Center
site in the Battery Park City neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. Overlooking the Hudson River, Brookfield Place has been home to offices of
various companies including Merrill Lynch, RBC Capital Markets, Nomura Group, American Express and Brookfield Asset Management, among others.
Osama said "It is important to concentrate on the destruction of the American economy"
and this looked like the plan to me.
Baton Rouge, La
Years later we come to September the eleventh two thousand and one. I'm sleeping on the couch and my roommate comes in waking me up all excited.
"Wake up! We're under attack! I've got food."
I look, and he has two huge bags of take out food from the restaurant he works at.
He sets down the bags as I turn on the TV. One tower is on fire.
He further says "Man, there are cops everywhere downtown like someone stirred up a hornets nest."
We are living Downtown Baton
Rouge. He says "We had just finished cooking everything for lunch when the boss comes in and says 'I'm not about gettin killed over some
food, shut it down!' And he let everyone off."
So I watch, live, as the second plane hits.
Here is my first thought.
"Looks like they are failing to knock the towers over again. See how the one plane came in from a direction where if the tower struck
were knocked over it would leave a huge path of destruction in one direction, and the second plane came in from the other direction to knock that
tower into it's own path of destruction.
I think the second plane hit higher up cause the pilot saw that the first tower hadn't fallen over."
My roommate just says "Hmm."
Then... when a tower falls I immediately think this.
"That's a controlled demolition. Pretty smart. Letting either tower just fall over would be much worse. Someone did the same analysis on
the basement bomb as I did. Too bad no one can ever take credit for it. People would crucify them."
Then he says to me something I'll never forget. He's passed away last year, so I guess I can tell this part now. He says "Wana know how
you can get killed. Go to Times Square, unfurl a confederate battle flag, and say ... 'That's what you Yankee's get.' "
I'll admit it. I almost laughed.
And that's it.
For a decade after that have watched America go insane about the issue, seeing dark conspiracies in everything and everyone. Even close friends
breathing fire at me when I try to bring up the subject and add in the missing historical context of the previous attempt."
After lurking on the 9/11 forums here for a month back in 2007 I decided that, it was far to volatile a subject, and too many people had too much
personally invested in their own theories to consider my version.
My only hope now is that the subject, and 15 year indiction, has cooled off, maybe at least one other person will consider my impression of the
