Thanks Ultra Sonic 007, but I believe I’ll pass on the GGG ping. However, my informal buddies list is another story...

You’re talking common sense, something the “9/11 truthers’ avoid like a vampire does a crucifix.

I’m still wondering where are all of the lawsuits are against demolition companies for padding the job by still taking weeks to set up a controlled demolition if a building now only takes minutes to demolish. Truthers? Anyone? Crickets chirp.

Where did you hear that it took minutes? I don’t remember that.

as usual, you put my thoughts into words.

How on earth, can we, as a nation, turn our backs on the almost 3,000 dead, and the thousands upon thousands hurt physically and emotionally on September 11th? Because that is exactly what the Left I this country want us to do.

What an insult to the innocents and the heroes of 9/11! How do we forget that anger, the knowledge that we are at war?

Again, I echo your words..."I for one will NEVER FORGET!!"

I'm reading Report from Ground Zero right now. This is what a couple of guys said regarding WTC7:

JOE DUNNE, First Deputy Police Commissioner (NYPD): "I saw people walking around on the street, and they all had the look of shock on their face. They were walking slowly, and many of them were walking into harm's way. They were walking south on Church Street. Many of these people were coming out of (WTC) 7, 5, and other surrounding buildings that had suffered collateral damage. In fact, at this point in time, those buildings were now on fire."

HARRY MEYERS, Assistant Chief of Department (FDNY): "We were all pretty much on board that tower 7 was going to fall. We just didn't know when or in which direction. Everybody forgets about 7, but that building was forty-seven stories, and that in itself would have been a very major event. We couldn't fight the fire in tower 7 because we didn't have enough water. All the water mains were down. What water we had was being supplied by the boats, through large-diameter hose. It would have been a chaotic situation, in any event, trying to get in there under those circumstances and fight that fire ..."

Only airport logistics made this 3000 dead. Two hours later, it would have been 50K dead.

If the whole plan of 10 planes went right, we'd have been

Decapitated.

Thank you for posting this, that was indeed sobering. I can't watch videos like this without crying, and then the anger starts again against the people who did this. Forget about reading the comments when such things are posted, many of the idiots posting need a good swift kick in the backside. (My post would be removed if I stated what they really need!) NEVER FORGET!!!

That is almost worse than any footage I’ve seen. TO know that those people had a few seconds to realize what was happening to them. EVERYONE in this country should watch that.

That would depend on what the fire department meant when it used the expression. I neither believe nor dis-believe, based on the statement. What do you believe? We’re talking about Building 7, not the twin towers the planes hit.

Muslims attacked us and it is Muslims who must pay. If the “moderates” among them will not force a reformation, let them all be destroyed like the scourge that they are.

I don’t recall ever hearing about their other plans. What else was supposed to have been hit that day? All I ever heard is that there was supposed to be more planes.

My sympathies to you and your family, doc...

This is one American that will never forget 9/11. It is as raw today as it was 6 years ago.

Starting 3 years ago, I have made a business trip to New York every November. As I stood at Ground Zero, I began to say the Jewish Prayer for the dead, the Kaddish.

One is supposed to say it for a parent, a sibling or a spouse. Thank G-d, I have all of those still with me, but so many lost their parent, in some cases both parents, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives.

It seemed appropriate and necessary.

G-d Bless you, my FRiend, and all those victimized by the insanity of 9/11.

Yes, thanks for the info. No statement that they had the building pulled. I wonder why Silverstein said what he said?

Larry Silverstein gave order to "pull" Building 7

What pull really means here is stop firefighting efforts in a fatally damaged and totally evacuted (civilians) building.

" In demolition parlance, 'pull' refers to a controlled demolition, according to the demolition experts interviewed."

Possibly, but when used in connection to Silverstein on the collapse of building 7 is truther BS.

The documentary went over this issue about WTC-7 and Silverstein’s comment. I think it is utterly clear (and Silverstein has confirmed) that what he meant by ‘pull’ was that he agreed it was best to ‘pull’ remaining firefighters away from WTC-7 due to the danger of collapse.

The nutters are still making me sick - every nonsensical point they make has been amply refuted - they have some psychological need to believe total nonsense.

If that’s the one by the photo journalists, it’s incredible. I got it at Sam’s Club when it first came out. I wish I had bought more copies then.

It’s good to know it’s still available and I’d encourage anybody interested in a good documentary about the day to get it.

Yup, that’s the clip. Thanks for finding it. Though Silverstein didn’t make the decision to ‘pull’ whatever they were going to pull. The fire department made the decision to ‘pull it,’ according to what Silverstein actually said on the tape.

Every anniversary, I see these images, its like it just happened yesterday. I get quite teary.

I am an old man now, and if I was younger I would be over seas in the fight.

My comfort is simply and lovingly to take out my guns, clean them every one, and polish them in what has become an annual super maintenance, and pray that the Islamic Fascist bustards eventually have enough balls to come over here, where my rounds will take them from the feet up, or that the good lord will subtract about 30 years from this old man's body.

Bless those who were lost, and bless those who lost friends , acquaintances and loved ones. We will not forget.

Here's some more info on Tower 7:

Battalion Chief John Norman, Special Operations Command (FDNY):

"I started to go down Vesey toward West, but there was a lot of debris blocking the way and they were telling me no, you don't want to go down there. They're worried about that building collapsing. I looked at 7 World Trade Center. There was smoke showing, but not a lot and I'm saying that isn't going to fall. So I went up Church Street two more blocks and went across to West and went right down behind 7 and got a good look at three sides.

Again, there were a lot of fires on the ground, some crushed mail trucks, some burned-up engines. It was a scene out of a war zone. I continued around to West and Vesey and reported into the command post. They were very concerned about fire extending into the telephone company building.

They gave me a couple of companies and said get into the telephone company building and check on extension there. We had extension on the first and second floors, so we took some standpipe lines, put them in operation and knocked that down. From there, we looked out at 7 World Trade Center again. You could see smoke, but no visible fire, and some damage to the south face. You couldn't really see from where we were on the west face of the building, but at the edge of the south face you could see that it was very heavily damaged.

But I never expected it to fall the way it did as quickly as it did, 7. But we took some defensive positions, actually tied the lines off and pulled the companies back from the building. I didn't feel too bad once we got back away from the perimeter just because that's a real, real heavy, old-style building. We knocked down any fire and checked for extension in the phone company building. We tied the lines off and left them flowing out into the street onto the debris piles that were burning out in the street there between the phone company and 7."

"If the whole plan of 10 planes went right, we'd have been Decapitated."

It’s always very sobering to think about how the history we take for granted could easily have been different. The outcome of WWII, for example, wasn’t such a given. There are a lot of ‘what ifs’ in history and we shouldn’t forget how fortunate we are. While I have great faith in the resilience of America, I also realize that our freedoms and what we are as a nation are precious and fragile and need to be vigilantly protected. I worry that we’ve become so complacent as a nation that we’ve let our guard down dangerously.
