Just on the face of it; guy leases buildings for 99 years, guy loads up big on insurance, buildings are destroyed almost immediately by hooligans, guy collects double the insurance on a technicality, . . . insurance companies and police go to work on the guy to try to get him jailed for insurance fraud. I think that's what would happen in a typical case like this, but 9/11 was different.

As far as the police, where is the fraud?
In the country i live in, when you lease you dont have ownership of it, how come he gets the insurance and not the real owners?

With that thought in mind, I then start thinking he either must be innocent even though all the facts scream otherwise, or he is just ultra-confident because all of the perpetrators are protecting each other and know that if they all stick together then nothing will bring them down.
[WTC 7] contained offices of the FBI, Department of Defense, IRS (which contained prodigious amounts of corporate tax fraud, including Enron’s), US Secret Service, Securities & Exchange Commission (with more stock fraud records), and Citibank’s Salomon Smith Barney, the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management and many other financial institutions.

The SEC has not quantified the number of active cases in which substantial files were destroyed [by the collapse of WTC 7]. Reuters news service and the Los Angeles Times published reports estimating them at 3,000 to 4,000. They include the agency's major inquiry into the manner in which investment banks divvied up hot shares of initial public offerings during the high-tech boom. ..."Ongoing investigations at the New York SEC will be dramatically affected because so much of their work is paper-intensive," said Max Berger of New York's Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann. "This is a disaster for these cases." [New York Lawyer]
Citigroup says some information that the committee is seeking [about WorldCom] was destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attack on the World Trade Center. Salomon had offices in 7 World Trade Center, one of the buildings that collapsed in the aftermath of the attack. The bank says that back-up tapes of corporate emails from September 1998 through December 2000 were stored at the building and destroyed in the attack. [TheStreet]
