    9/11 Story Missing?

    I was scrolling either cnn.com or foxnews.com and saw a story about the feds uncovering new info about the collapse of the towers. I clicked another link to read a story, and when I returned the story was gone. I went back and tried to search both sites with no luck. Did anyone see this? Why did they hide the story? Maybe it just got archived and replaced by other stories to fill the homepage.

    Perhaps contacting CNN or Fox news might uncover the story . Otherwise Google might find it again too.

    If you hear the thumpty thump of the black choppers, let us know then go hide in your basement. Make sure you have some foil down there too.

    Cheers

    I do hear choppers a lot though. I live near an airport... or maybe that's just what the CIA wants me to think.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Yup, thanks matt! The only other question... why are they even doing a news story on this? I guess that's why it disappeared from the headlines so quickly.

    I think Jesse Ventura's assesments of Building 7's destruction brought this back. I guess being a US Navy SEAL, trained to blow things up and having an impeccable patriotic background that can't be sullied allowed Jesse Ventura to raise the question that Building 7 was barely scratched yet fell at free fall speed.

    His new book is great, BTW

    I think Jessie is full of hooie. I've read bunches of the conspiracy theories and have a sister that swallows every one of them. What happened happened because of a bunch of bad guys smashed airplanes into the towers and the Pentagon and it's as simple as that. The government did not blow up building 7 and anyone that thinks so has too much time on their hands.

    When people talk about WTC7, the often fail to realize two things.

    First, the water supply had failed, so the sprinklers did little to nothing.
    Second, the building burned unchecked for 7 or so hours because there was no water and also because the people who would have been fighting the fire died when the towers collapsed.

    It is true that prior to WTC7, no skyscraper had collapsed due to fire before, but it is also true that one had never been allowed to burn unchecked for 7+ hours before, either.

    I don't think it was a crazy conspiracy I do not listen to crazy people with tinfoil hats either but when Jesse Ventura said that, it did strike a chord with me because, IMHO to me Ventura is a true patriot and is experienced in Demolitions. I'll trust a SEAL, Governnor and Harvard Professor rather than some internet junkies

    I haven't read the full report yet, but WTC 7 has always bothered me. For one, it received very little media attention. I would guess if there was a nation wide poll, 80% of Americans would think that only two buildings collapsed on 9/11.

    When the media shuts something up like that, and a building about a block away from impact mysteriously collapses in what appears to be a controlled demolition, it makes me wonder just how free our press is.

    I'll grab my flame retardant gear and my tinfoil...
