This is the best footage I have ever seen of the World Trade Center attacks.
Thanks Ultra Sonic 007, but I believe I’ll pass on the GGG ping. However, my informal buddies list is another story...
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.
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!!"
Thank you. I just found out from Enchante that Lester Holt is the narrator.
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 ..."
Yes. That conveyed such genuine horror and grief.
It fell the same day as the towers didn’t it?
If the whole plan of 10 planes went right, we'd have been
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.
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?
The link quit working for me halfway through; it just froze. Anyone else have that problem?
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.
Five or six hours later, from what I remember.
4 tommorrow ... thanks.
