In February of 2002 Silverstein Properties won $861 million from Industrial Risk Insurers to rebuild on the site of WTC 7. Silverstein Properties estimated investment in WTC 7 was $386 million. So: This building's collapse resulted in a profit of about $500 mill.
Looking at the upper right-hand corner of the building we see a rapid series of small explosions travelling upward just as the building itself begins to fall. The size, placement and timing of these "puffs" is very consistent with squibs from cutting charges of the type used in professional controlled demolitions, and in fact nothing but small explosive charges could create such an appearance.
Also, WTC 7 contained agency's like the FBI, CIA, DOD, Homeland, and other various contractors.
On another note, the building was well built and alot newer than the Towers, since it was a mostly govermental building it had even more protection layers.
Also if you look at an ariel map of the surrounding area, you will discover that WTC 7 was much futher away than many other buildings, yet they didnt catch fire or recive much damage as the WTC 7.
The fires just started, personally i belive it was them burning the paperwork like they do in Embacies in a time of crisis.
They already knew to destroy that building from the start, thats why very few fire fighters had gone in, Larry just gave the go. He did afterall own the building.
Also i have personally fought fires and i know just because theres alot of smoke doesnt mean the fire is big. Sometimes the fire almost puts itself out with too much smoke. Also, in mock disaster training as a fire cheif or emt leader, we DO NOT SEND people into a burning building if we think at all theres a chance that it will fall..we must put our safety first before others. Thats an EMT/FIREFIGHTER's first rule.
"I remember getting a call from the Fire Department commander, telling me they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, you know, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is just pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse."
How can you get such a strong feeling for what it stands for, "it" can imply anything at any rate, and that fact that when discussing that, Silverstein then refers to the building falling down, so what does that imply?
