Silverstein Answers WTC Building 7 Charges
Says "pull it" meant to evacuate firefighters, but there were no firefighters in the building
Paul Joseph Watson | January 5 2006
After nearly two years of steadfast silence, Silverstein Properties have finally responded to questions about what Larry Silverstein meant when he told a PBS documentary that WTC Building 7 was "pulled" in the late afternoon of September 11 2001.
Building 7 occupied a city block immediately north of the World Trade Center complex. Photos taken minutes before its collapse show small fires on two or three floors. Building 7 became only the third steel building in history before or since 9/11 to collapse from fire damage. The other two were the North and South towers of the World Trade Center.

He said 'Pull it, then you seen the building come down" is what he said.
Also wasn't convinient that none of the I-Beams needed to be cut to size to fit on the 40' truckbeds, they were all amazingly about 40' fett long to fit perfectly on the truckbeds.
Also you can see that the beams were cut at a 45 degree angle with Thermite, just like they fall and cut down a tree.

Silverstein had no authority to tell anyone what to do with firemen or building.
The only reason the fire chief was calling was a courtesy call to tell him that they could not save the building. This was after the firemen had already been moved out of the building and the safety zone.

Even if it was a courtesy call, you can NOT pull a building without first wiring it with explosives to demolish it into its own footprint. Demolition men know that a building has to be wired in such a fashion that it blows up in a certain sequence so that the building falls into the middle of itself.
