CNBC Analyst Who Was at Ground Zero on 9/11 Claims WTC 7 Was Brought Down by Controlled Demolition
CNBC senior analyst Ron Insana, who was there on ground zero during the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, recently claimed that Building 7 of the World Trade Center complex was brought down via a controlled demolition.
Insana made this stunning claim during an appearance on Bernie and Sid In the Morning, a program that airs regularly on New York’s 77 WABC Radio, on the 18th anniversary of the attacks.
“Well, remember 7 World Trade had not yet come down. And so when I went down to the [New York Stock] Exchange that Wednesday morning [September 12], I was standing with some military and police officers, and we were looking over in that direction. And if it had come down in the way in which it was tilting, it would have wiped out everything from where it stood to Trinity Church to the Exchange to, effectively, you know, the mouth of the Hudson,” Insana recounted about his experiences on the ground that fateful day.
“And so there were still fears that if that building had fallen sideways, you were going to wipe out a good part of Lower Manhattan. So they did manage for one to take that down in a controlled implosion later on. And the Exchange was up and running the following Monday,” Insana said during his appearance on the radio show.
Insana’s remarks fly in the face of the official government story about WTC 7, which federal investigators concluded was brought down due to office fires.
“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7, which were uncontrolled but otherwise similar to fires experienced in other tall buildings, caused an extraordinary event,” the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s WTC Lead Investigator Shyam Sunder claimed.
“Heating of floor beams and girders caused a critical support column to fail, initiating a fire-induced progressive collapse that brought the building down,” Sunder added.
However, a landmark academic study that was recently published has demonstrated that there was no way that WTC 7 could have collapsed from office fires and the official government story must be a fabrication:
A ground-breaking study conducted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) has shown that fires did not cause building 7 of the World Trade Center (WTC) to fall during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, disputing the official story.
Researchers have produced a draft report of an in depth four-year study into what brought down WTC 7 and discovered that the conclusions found by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) could not have possibly taken place.
“Fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse. The secondary conclusion of our study is that the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building,” the authors of the study concluded.
It has long been speculated that WTC 7 fell from a controlled demolition, not from office fires as the feds have long told the public. This study bolsters the case made by the individuals who rejected the official narrative concocted by the globalist George W. Bush administration.
New York Area Fire Commissioners are beginning to question the official story of what happened on 9/11 as well.
The Franklin Square and Munson Fire District, which oversees a district of 30,000 residents outside of Queens, passed a resolution earlier this year which said there is “overwhelming evidence” that “pre-planted explosives . . . caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings.”
“We’re a tight-knit community and we never forget our fallen brothers and sisters. You better believe that when the entire fire service of New York State is on board, we will be an unstoppable force,” Commissioner Christopher Gioia said after the resolution was approved on July 27.
“We were the first fire district to pass this resolution. We won’t be the last,” Gioia added.
As more details emerge about what really happened on 9/11, the so-called conspiracy theorists may be vindicated for questioning the official government story.
