You might wonder WTH any of the following has to do with 911 but I think it has a lot to do with it and explains much. Looking for the answer to the question of “why 911 occurred” and its corollary “how could they do this”, we’re inevitably brought face to face with evil and that means different things to different people.
On one level were the Muslim terrorists themselves and how they were allowed to roam freely, being a known known, just like with Beslan and just like the other side in Oslo, when the spooks knew but sat back and allowed these people to do their worst – for their own reasons.
Once you accept that WCT7 imploded, and I reached this conclusion after one, two, three and four, then the question of who had access, over what time period and why throws up all sorts of possibilities, one of them being money and another – power. Revenge is another and not just Muslim revenge – Zionist revenge and the revenge of haters of humankind on the people.
What was involved with WTC7?
This comes from multiple sources, many of which you’ve read yourself. The advantage I have is that I’m coming to this for the first time, not having had TV or radio for decades and having been overseas at the time. I’ve never really looked at 911 in depth and so, in many cases, I’m discovering what you already know.
Building 7 occupied a block to the north of the World Trade Center Plaza. Its 23rd floor held Mayor Giuliani’s Emergency Command Center. This floor had bullet- and bomb-resistant windows, an independent air and water supply, and an unobstructed view of the north faces of both towers.
The other government agencies with offices in the building were the IRS, the EEOC, the US Secret Service, the SEC, and the CIA.
The private tenants were Salomon Smith Barney, American Express Bank International, Standard Chartered Bank, Provident Financial Management, ITT Hartford Insurance Group, First State Management Group, Inc., Federal Home Loan Bank, and NAIC Securities.
Large numbers of case files for ongoing investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) were reportedly destroyed in the collapse. The Los Angeles Times reported that “substantial files were destroyed” for 3000 to 4000 of the SEC’s cases. The EEOC reported that documents for 45 active cases were destroyed. 3 Before the attack, SEC investigations of corporate fraud by companies such as Enron and Worldcom were the subject of many news reports — reports that virtually vanished in the wake of the attack.
WTC7′s developer and lease-holder, Silverstein Properties, and WTC7′s mortgage-holders, the Blackstone Group, Bank of America Securities, and General Motors Acceptance Corporation, received a Court-awarded amount of $861 million dollars from Industrial Risk Insurers in February 2002. We know that about $386 million had been invested in WTC7 before its destruction. The Court-award meant that Silverstein Properties and the mortgage-holders would share in about $475 million of profit.
Silverstein Properties is headed by Larry Silverstein, a large contributor to Democrat and Republican office-holders. Silverstein Properties became the primary owner of the WTC Twin Towers less than two months before 9/11/01 (Westfield Malls was Silverstein Properties’ minority-partner).
Buying from the New York Port Authority, Silverstein Properties invested only $15 million toward a total purchase-price of $3.2 billion for a 99-year lease on holdings worth an estimated $8 billion. The low-rise office buildings WTC 4, 5, and 6, and 400,000 square feet of retail space were included with the Twin Towers in this deal. Silverstein Properties immediately took out extensive insurance policies on its new holdings.
One clause in Silverstein Properties’ insurance policies for the new WTC holdings soon proved instrumental. Quoting the British Financial Times of September 14, 2001, the American Reporter wrote that ‘ the lease has an all-important escape clause: If the buildings are struck by “an act of terrorism”, the new owners’ obligations under the lease are void. As a result, the new owners are not required to make any payments under their lease, but they will be able to collect on the loss of the buildings that collapsed or were otherwise destroyed and damaged in the attacks. ’
Silverstein Properties is still contesting the amount of pay-out due for destruction of the Twin Towers—$3.55 billion for one ‘occurrence’ or $7.1 billion for two ‘occurrences’. The “terrorism” clause in his lease has given Larry Silverstein leverage in negotiating his new deal for the site.
“In the month that lapsed between the terrorist attacks and the deployment of the FEMA Building Performance Assessment Team [BPAT Team], a significant amount of steel debris—including most of the steel from the upper floors—was removed from the rubble pile, cut into smaller sections, and either melted at the recycling plant or shipped out of the U.S.
Some of the critical pieces of steel—including the suspension trusses from the top of the towers and the internal support columns—were gone before the first BPAT team member ever reached the site. Fortunately, an NSF-funded independent researcher, recognizing that valuable evidence was being destroyed, attempted to intervene with the City of New York to save the valuable artifacts, but the city was unwilling to suspend the recycling contract.” [Committee on Science, U.S. House of Representatives, March 6, 2002]
Steel and debris from the site was sent to Fresh Kills where it was examined and sifted. As the Department of Sanitation could no longer handle the steel with their equipment, and … engineers thought the steel would destabilize the landfill, DDC received verbal permission to ship the steel to New Jersey. By the end of June 2002, over 1.6 million tons of steel and other debris were removed from the site.
“[O]n September 28, the New York Times learned that the city was recycling the steel. When the Times contacted Kenneth R. Holden, commissioner of the Department of Design and Construction, he said that no one from the investigative team had asked him to keep or inspect the steel. The ASCE, it turned out, had faxed a request, but to the wrong fax machine. Late that afternoon, after reporters shuttled the correct fax number to the ASCE, Holden said that a request had finally reached him.”
Mayor Giuliani had been asked to halt the removal but his office did not respond to these requests. Commissioner Kenneth R. Holden … was given an award in 2002 by the AIA New York Chapter after he had overseen the criminal destruction of the steel from the World Trade Center.
No shortage of suspects
I might be wrong but I don’t personally buy that they brought down the centre to destroy records – that could have been done many other ways. Brought it down for profit? That’s more of a possibility.
I think my idea is crazier than any of those – it was on a whim that the idea occurred to someone and the plan evolved from that, On another level, it was to demonstrate something to people.
At the risk of oversimplifying and being jingoistic, two truisms – that “money is the root of all evil” and “fire is a good servant but a bad master” – still hold true. When we lose sight of our humanity and lose ourselves in the pursuit of money and power, then we’re on the road to being controlled.
When I was in Russia, if you walked along a street and could hear people’s conversations, the number of times “dengi” or money came into it might have surprised you – it wasn’t far from anyone’s lips.
So it’s a double-whammy – if you’re one of the well-heeled, you crave for more, to get you a little higher in the pecking order and if you’re poor, you crave it to get you out of your chains. I believe that that’s where we’re headed again now, more starkly, with no comfortable middle-class remaining and everyone – elite and serfs alike – as slaves to money and power.
That paves the way for inhumane mindsets, as seen in the horrible things people are doing to each other today – killing an ex-gf for a cooked meal [did you see that?] or road rage or whatever. And one commenter on that killer wrote:
Look at her face then look at him grinning as he enters court knowing what he did. Then tell my why we should not bring back hanging.
Also, in a moral vacuum, a sense of entitlement and victimhood are never far from the surface and it’s the next step to go the way of this man – with a penchant that now knows no disdain in such communities and so the worst excesses take place. DSK is a perfect example, even if he is innocent of that particular Sofitel rap. As for this French socialist:
In 1975, so still living in Germany, the Franco-German Europe-Ecologie MEP Daniel Cohn-Bendit who worked for a time as a teacher’s aide in a creche in Frankfurt, wrote a book called Le Grand Bazar, in which he described his teacher’s aide experiences at the crèche. This is a quote from the book, wherein he describes his sexualisation of his young charges, who ranged from the ages of 1 to 6:
‘”It happened on several occasions that certain kids opened my fly and started to tickle me. I reacted in a certain manner, depending on the circumstances. I would ask them, ‘Why don’t you play together? Why did you choose me — me — instead of the other kids?’ But they would insist, and I would caress them all the same.”
No, I’m not suggesting that all socialists are like that – just those with elitist pretensions and this includes all political hues. When you get to the top, either through money or power, then you are susceptible to this very much, to this moral vacuum, where you see yourself as the one to make his or her mark on the world.
In one of the Father Brown books, the Hammer of God, a churchman climbs to the top of the belltower and, leaning over, sees his libertine brother below. From up there, he sees the people below as ants and his brother as one of the more uppity ones, prancing around like a miniscule buffoon. So, filled with his distorted perspective, he throws down a small hammer but it is enough to split the skull of hi brother.
That was a churchman but what if it is a Daniel Cohn-Bendit or a DSK, with a moral compass which should never see the light of day? Couple that with sociopathy and it’s a dangerous person who “rules” us, whose lifestyle is the fast lane and the jetset, in the finest of suits and consuming the finest of food and wine. From a post on the Frankfurt School, home to diseased spirits:
The essential difference between the Marxist idealist and the Frankfurter is that the latter, at some stage in the process, either was already or became morally bankrupt. The social conditions they were insidiously striving for, their personal lives [read about Huxley and Marcuse] and their goals were not altruistic, not in the least, despite being tricked out in language to suck in the average undergrad punter.
And Jesse – is he mad or right? Has he overstepped the mark?
Not all sociopaths wield knives and knotted cords. Some wear suits, and are exceptionally intelligent and articulate, obsessively driven, and are able to use and undermine the law and the rules for their advantage, like weapons. It is never about the win, never about the money. It is about the kill, the expression of their hatred, about elevating themselves with the suffering of others.
Bind, torture, kill. Not only with ropes and knives, but also with power and money, and the subversion of law. Lawlessness is their addiction, their will to power.
In the end what they want is to fill the hole in their being, which has tormented them from childhood, by destroying others, and to differentiate themselves from all those other lower beings whom they hold in contempt. They find no commonality with human happiness and the normal life, because of the hatred they have for themselves, and their sense of alienation from all that is human. Their compulsion is to rape and destroy.
When societies become lax and complacent, these sociopaths can possess great political power through great amounts of unprincipled money. And over time they become almost anti-human, destroyers of all that is good, all that is life, all that offends their insatiable sickness with its goodness. They twist the public against itself, and turn a broad sweep of society into their killing grounds.
This is the undeniable lesson of the last century. There are monsters, and they walk among us.
Bring down towers which are not needed, are corroding and need replacement, at huge cost? This is the perfect way to deal with it … and at a profit. Pin it on the phobia of the moment – Islamophobia and the Arabs – and it serves many ends. The Muslim world gets its revenge, the people of the U.S.A. are outraged, those at the top rake in the profit and deny it to others and all is well, as far as they can see – a win-win situation.
The carnage is a necessary step along the way to achieve their ends. Raedwald wrote on that, though I doubt he’d concur with my take on 911.
