Larry Silverstein and 9/11

Larry Silverstein, a commercial real estate tycoon, and leaseholder of the World Trade Center, with international political connections, acquired a 99 year lease on the World Trade Center Complex in the spring of 2001. Throughout the summer he re-worked the insurance policies on his new property, making sure that it was covered for acts of terrorism. Explicit in the lease agreement was Silverstein's right to rebuild the complex if it were destroyed.

After 911 Silverstein fought his insurers in court to obtain double his policy limit for the destruction of his property, maintaining that the double hijacking constituted two disasters caused by terrorist, not just one. He won, and was awarded over 7 billion dollars, a magnificent return on his original 15 million dollar investment.

A lessee turned developer, Larry Silverstein is developing 3 of the 5 new towers to be completed in 2012.

Remember building 7 and how "debris from the Twin Towers" fell onto it and made it catch fire making it fall to the ground? Leaseholder Silverstein, from his own mouth stated that he had firefighters demolish the building.

The fires in WTC 7 were supposedly started by the collapse of WTC 1, so there wouldn't have been any time to rig the building for demolition on 9/11.

Suggesting that it was demolished by the FDNY provides an alternative to the only logical explanation - that it was rigged for demolition before the attack. The absurdity of the FDNY setting to "pull" Building 7 on 9/11 will escape most people, those who neither grasp the engineering of the controlled demolition of a skyscraper, nor its contradiction with FEMA's account of the collapse. So the idea that officials decided to "pull" Building 7 after the attack serves as a distraction from the logic that the building's demolition was planned in advance of the attack, and was therefore part of an inside job to destroy the entire WTC complex.
