But a third World Trade Center skyscraper, commonly known as World Trade Center Building #7, was a 47-story building that also came tumbling to the ground that day. This structure was never hit by an airplane, although it did sustain collateral damage mostly on the southwest side from the other buildings, and had scattered interior fires throughout. Despite the relatively limited external damage, and despite the fires that could never burn hot enough to melt structural steel -- much less weaken the steel support columns and cause them to fail simultaneously -- this building came tumbling to the ground in an accelerating free-fall, at approximately 5:20 p.m. EDT.
Following is a video that explains what happened. More accurately, it explains what didn't happen. The people interviewed are all experts in their respective fields; structural engineers, physicists, chemists, mechanical engineers, and highrise architects. They are agree what didn't happen. And what didn't happen is this: It didn't fall due to fire alone, and it didn't fall due to exterior damage alone. As a matter of fact, it didn't fall because of both reasons combined. But let's cut to the chase and tell you why it fell.
It was a controlled demolition.
End of Story.
Here's the video. Get your popcorn. Grab your Big Gulp. Learn how you've been duped.
(1) If fire caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever fire-induced collapse of a steel-frame high-rise.
(2) Building 7’s collapse was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.
(3) According to a Zogby poll in 2006, 43% of Americans did not know about Building 7.
(4) It took the federal government seven years to conduct an investigation and issue a report for Building 7.
(5) 1,700+ architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation into the destruction of Building 7, specifying that it should include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives.
(6) Numerous witnesses say the possibility of demolishing Building 7 was widely discussed by emergency personnel at the scene and advocated by the building’s owner.
(7) Building 7 housed several intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the NYC Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center, more commonly known as “Giuliani’s Bunker”.
