9-11 Unforgotten, Part 9: Hello, Larry!

look at the kitty!This is the Ninth installment in a planned set of ten Raging Pencils comics, each addressing facets of
9-11 I deem sorely underevaluated.

I hope you're all enjoying the series but please take a moment to visit Mike's Video Vault (below) and listen as Ed Asner presents the case for WTC 7's intentional destruction.


On 9-11-01, the aircraft that struck WTC's 1&2 both took off from Boston, heading for Los Angeles. AA 11 was hijacked in New York state and made a straight southward run for the Towers, attacking from the north. UA 175 took a much different route (???) and ended up looping around New York and attacking from the south.

This only makes sense if the idea was to destroy as much of the WTC complex, also owned by Larry Silverstein, as they did. WTC 7 escaped relatively unharmed from the attack which is, in my view, why it had to be imploded.

Yes, Mr. Silverstien had thoughtfully double-insured the asbestos-laden complex from terrorist attack six months earlier when he acquired it. He walked away with $500 million dollars profit.

One more mystery: As you can see AA 11's route to the WTC was obviously much longer than UA 175, so how did it arrive at its target 20 minutes sooner?



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #79 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(79) 9-9-2011: Rick Perry wants to kill Social Security. He also wants to eliminate the FDA, the FCC, the U.S. Post Office and just about every other federal employee except soldiers, the Supreme Court and himself. It's kind of a jobs plan if you long for the 12th century.

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm for the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.

WTC 7 was not struck by a plane on 9-11 and had only suffered minor structural damage.
And yet it collapsed straight into its own footprint.

BBC reported on the destruction of WTC 7.... twenty minutes before it actually collapses(click for video)

Larry Silverstein, property developer of the WTC, admits that WTC 7 was intentionally destroyed. They "pulled" the building (click for video)

" The fire department commander told me that they were not gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'Maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse."

Such preparation takes weeks. And did I mention that WTC 7 was on fire?

New York firefighters knew the building was going to be destroyed

And yet, FEMA blamed the collapse on diesel fuel in the building.

While NIST claimed it was a phenomena called "thermal expansion".

Otherwise known as fire.

The collapse of WTC was not discussed in the 9-11 Report..
