Dear Editors,

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I wonder how many people know that a third tower that was not hit by a plane fell on Sept 11, 2001. The 47-story World Trade Tower 7 fell straight down into its own footprint at near free-fall speed at 5:30 pm on 9/11. The government agency, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), explained the destruction of the building as being caused by a new “ unknown phenomenon” having to do with heat expansion from office fires. NIST did not investigate the possibility of controlled demolition even though all the familiar characteristics were evident when the building fell. Dan Rather, reporting on the collapse said “it’s reminiscent of those pictures we’ve all seen too much on television before, where a building was deliberately destroyed by well placed dynamite to knock it down.” The 9/11 Commission Report did not mention WTC7 anywhere in its 567 pages. Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth, a group consisting of over 1500 professional architects and engineers has produced a video narrated by actor Ed Asner which makes a strong case that the building was brought down with explosives. Watch it here:
