Living in New York City this time of year you see all the signs saying “Never Forget”.
It’s unfortunate that the news media in New York have selective memory. Sure they will put a memorial on their covers for Wednesday editions and wave the flag, but not one newspaper covered the startling new academic report just released about WTC Building 7 and its demise.
While a federal government report in 2008 finalized the collapse of Building 7 as caused by fire — an event that had never happen before or since with a stell-structured building — the new draft study out of the University of Alaska Fairbanks says fire could not have caused the systematic collapse.
“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7 could not have caused the collapse recorded on video,” said UAF civil engineering professor Leon Hulsey, the study’s principal investigator said in the study. See link here for full story.
The only thing that could have brought this structure down in the manner observed on 9/11 is the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building below Floor 17,” Hulsey added.
The study does not say what caused the column failure and it should not. All the study does is refute the much-maligned official National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) study released in 2008.
Never Forget, we will probably never know the whole truth about 9/11.
