Popular Mechanics and Building 7
Popular Mechanics has jumped into the fray of the 9/11 debate. I heard one of their people on a radio link and an interesting point really jumped out. First of all, you realize this debate could be settled in a day if the government just released the evidence it has, especially the videos of whatever hit the Pentagon. They know they have a problem with the public and there is no reason why they would want 1 in 3 Americans believing that the government was involved. The only thing I can think of is that they want it as a distraction to keep us from pondering something else. But that doesn't make sense because they did release a few frames from one of the videos, so they are feeling the pressure. Those frames turned out to be inconclusive, so where are the other videos seized shortly after the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon? Why won't they put those out there? Next we have the Popular Mechanics argument that the reason Building 7 collapsed late in the afternoon of 9/11 was because something like 25% of the base had been gouged out that morning. Even though there were other buildings between 7 and the towers - buildings that were damaged from falling debris and fire, but didn't collapse. The interesting part is that Popular Mechanics claims to have been shown pictures of the damage to the base of Building 7 - pictures the public hasn't seen.
Wouldn't it be the right thing to do to show the public these? Can't we get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation? One other point about the original PBS documentary where Larry Silverstein, who just acquired the buildings several months before 9/11, uses the term "pull" in reference to Building 7. The Popular Mechanics guy said that they could find no examples of using the word "pull" in the demolition industry to mean take down a building. They conclude Larry was saying "pull the firefighters", even though it is also reported there were no firefighters in Building 7. Okay, I've read that a construction worker uses the term "pull" to mean using explosives to bring down another building in the exact same PBS documentary. What's going on here? Why is the government not eager to dismiss these theories by releasing the evidence? It doesn't make sense unless......
