....one cannot turn a blind eye to the fact that the BBC reported WTC7 had collapsed some 20 minutes prior to it happening...
Remember, the building was beautifully positioned and clearly in view, just over the shoulder of the woman as she announced it had collapsed.....!!
Only 20 minutes later it came down....devoid of any plane crashing into it....
WTC7 really is the smoking gun in this whole disgrace...
Surely this in itself should have all on here questioning how that would be possible??
If you still cannot smell something extremely fishy as a result of this unexplainable error on the Beebs part, then quite honestly you should hang your head in shame, so pathetic are your denials....

Use Firefox instead of IE. Might help. (is much better anyway, all 'round.)

Watched part one of the vid, generally not impressed. Mostly because I've seen so much utter crap in 911 doc.s that I'm poisoned against the whole movement and don't believe anything that self-proclaimed Truthers say (Truthers are not impartial, so make less effective reporters on 911 stuff). Which is not the same thing as saying that the US Govt. had nothing to do with some of the stuff which went down that day. Although I broadly doubt it, at the moment.
Of course mainstream journalism is in crisis, but the alternative is currently no better. The appalling record of 911-Truth movement research/reportage in presenting erroneous facts and jumping to erroneous conclusions based on inadequate research is about the best example I can think of. Research and presentation of facts is a skill, it's a job. It's not something which everyone can do, without training and a professional framework of ethics and best-practises.
But the people who possess those skills are currently working for multinational corporations.
It's a tragedy that people like Murdoch and Turner (and orgs like Reuters) exercise oligopolistic power over The Truth (which is basically what they do).
It's actually an intolerable situation.
IMO news organisations should be independent organisations, and not multinationals. Journos should pledge to work only for independent news outlets, and not for companies like Time Intl. which span the globe.

Sorry, I just can't buy the fact that confusion caused the BBC to report a very large skyscraper had collapsed when it was clear in the picture shown.
They knew, it was right there on their monitors.
