Okay I gotta ask...I've seen the 9/11 conspiracy proponents say the predominant reason they believe in these "controlled demoliitons" accusations
is because Silversten said "Pull it". To be precise, he said-
"I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the
fire, and I said, "We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it." And they made that decision to pull and we
watched the building collapse."
...and "Pull it" according to the 9/11 conspiracy proponents is supposed to be slang for bringing down a building via controlled demolitions. Now,
I've looked high, low, left, and right for exactly WHERE the source is that said "Pull it" is supposed to be industry lingo for controlled
demolitions, and not only can I not find one, all I see is that the conspiracy proponents are backing up the claim by referencing OTHER conspiracy
proponents saying that "pull it" is lingo for explosives. This is akin to Josef Goebbels saying "don't take my word for it that the Germans are
the master race. Go ask that fellow Heinrich Himmler".
In fact the only reference I can even find is that "Pull it" is lingo for literally "Pull it" as in pulling a building down with cables (yes,
it's an established procedure, look it up). This is certainly demolition, but it's not a controlled demolition and it certainly has nothing to do
with explosives. I think it's a given that regardless of where you stand on the 9/11 conspiracy discussion, you agree that WTC 7 wasn't pulled down
I'm not debating what else "Pull it" could mean, I'm not debating that Silverstein would have said pull THEM instead of pull IT, and I'm not
debating whether Silverstein or the NYFD "pulled it". What I'm debating is where exactly the claim "Pull it" means CONTROLLED DEMOLITIONS came
from, vs it being slang for "toasting marshmallows over an open fire" or "a dog taking a whiz against a fire hydrant", because from what I'm
seeing, it's a completely made up claim and all the conspiracy theorists are just repeating an internet meme over and over as if it were true, the
same way any absurd claim becomes believable, the more people repeat it. You know Bogart NEVER actually said "Play it again, Sam", right?
So where did "Pull it" is slang for controlled demolitions come from? Please, post a reference that doesn't involve Alex Jones somehow.
