WTC Building Number Seven

115201 b7_nofire wtc7-1

 

A 47-story steel-framed skyscraper, Building Seven occupied a block adjacent to the World Trade Center complex, two blocks away from the nearest of the Twin Towers. It was not hit by an aircraft. It was said that it was severely damaged by large pieces of steel ejected from the North Tower, but there is no publicly verifiable evidence of this. Even so, like the Twin Towers, Building Seven collapsed on 9/11/01. The collapse, which occurred at 5:20 PM, is not thought to have killed anyone. According to the government’s report, fires caused Building Seven to collapse. Yet, excepting 9/11/01, there has never been a case of fires, no matter how severe, causing the collapse of a steel-framed high-rise Building. Why wasn’t this inexplicable incident a major news story?

Building Seven occupied a block to the north of the World Trade Center Plaza. Its 23rd floor held Mayor Giuliani’s Emergency Command Center. This floor had bullet- and bomb-resistant windows, an independent air and water supply, and an unobstructed view of the north faces of both towers. 1 2

The other government agencies with offices in the Building were the IRS, the EEOC, the US Secret Service, the SEC, and the CIA.

The private tenants were Salomon Smith Barney, American Express Bank International, Standard Chartered Bank, Provident Financial Management, ITT Hartford Insurance Group, First State Management Group, Inc., Federal Home Loan Bank, and NAIC Securities.

Large numbers of case files for ongoing investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) were reportedly destroyed in the collapse. The Los Angeles Times reported that “substantial files were destroyed” for 3000 to 4000 of the SEC’s cases. The EEOC reported that documents for 45 active cases were destroyed. Before the attack, SEC investigations of corporate fraud by companies such as Enron and Worldcom were the subject of many news reports — reports that virtually vanished in the wake of the attack
