|WTC 7 fell straight down on 9-11, 2001 after being 'pulled' by the NYC fire commander on the decision of leaseholder, Larry Silverstein.
'Pull it': [audio] [analysis]
|" I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse. "

Thanks to From the Wilderness for these quotes and the basis for these these captions.
|General Ralph E. Eberhart was the man in charge of NORAD on the morning of 9-11. 2001.
Eberhart was responsible for the defense of U.S. air space.
'No comment' from the person in charge being asked to explain the reasons for our failure to defend U.S. air space is dereliction of duty.
But as you will see, there will be no accountablity enforced.
See revison notes: 2004.07.12
If this nation is going to reclaim its title as the nation 'of the people, by the people and for the people, " then we must restore our constitutional separation of powers, install a congress that is going to actually read the bills before making them law and restrain the growth and cost of government by defunding unnecessary and extra-constitutional initiatives.
