This is the first of several threads intended to replace a large thread on 911 that was recently closed. Each of these new threads will highlight
various results of my original research into events surrounding 9/11 that have not appeared elsewhere on ATS. Here is the first of those statements
made in the original thread:
1. CNN's headquarters in NYC was located in the North tower on the 110th Floor of the WTC, but not one single, solitary CNN employee appears on the
lists I have of dead/missing by floor number/corporate occupant for the floors above impact point. i.e. somebody told the CNN staff (which had leased
almost the entire 110th floor) to skip work that day.
This was the first point in the thread recently frozen by SkepticOverlord for purposes of neatness, conciseness and clarity.
To highlight what has taken place with regard to this subject previously:
1. It was my contention that CNN had a large office on this floor. My assumption was based on three paper copies of different occupancy lists of the
tenants of the North Tower by corporation by floor number. One of these lists clearly shows CNN as a tenant of the 110th floor along with several NYC
area TV stations. There were minor SF figures given for each of these stations totalling 3200 SF of total leased space (out of the total floor space
of 40,000 SF) but no figure given for CNN. I may have jumped to conclusions by assuming that CNN had leased the remainder of the space and had a
large office on this floor.
2. A moderator originally challenged my assertion that any space was leased by CNN on this floor, as my links had been deleted or changed and I
had/have (at this writing) no way to scan my documents into this site. Fortunately, ATS member "Bangin" was able to post a different link showing
that CNN was indeed listed as a tenant, but without any SF figures.
3. Several members took umbrance with my calling this leased space "CNN's headquarters in NYC" and stated (to me the obvious) that the national HQ
for CNN is in Atlanta. I concede that point, but insisted my intent was never to call this the national HQ but only a regional HQ.
4. Later a moderator found 2 links which claimed that CNN had only 200 SF of that floor leased. I intially assumed that this put to rest my
assumption that there was a large office on this floor. However, after closer examination it was shown that these 2 links were both put together
AFTER 9/11, and this possibly susceptible to error/maipulation.
So, IMO, the issue has not been thoroughly closed. If CNN, did indeed have a large office there, they should have listed casualities as did every
other corporation above the impact points in both towers. Many are stating that the 200 SF claim is thoroughly valid, despite the date of the links
used to support this claim, and are in disagreement with me as to this point still being a valid bone of contention in the overall 9/11 debate.
I have/am conced-ed/ing:
1> That my choice of words to describe this leased space (no matter what size it may eventually be proven to have been) as "CNNs headquarters in
NYC" was a poor one, and was a jump to a conclusion that I made in error.
2> That it is entirely plausible that the 200 SF figure may eventually be proven correct.
3> That my statement following the i.e. is conjectural, and ought not to have been included in the original thread with a subject heading that
included the word "facts."
