Trade Center 7's national security status
A Huffington Post blogger recently wondered why conspirators would be so dumb as to show their hands with the uneccessary demolition of World Trade Center 7 some five hours after the fall of WTC1.
Good question, and something we must beware, I think. There is virtually no doubt that the 48-story WTC7 was blown. However, here's where the government can get sly.
CIA officials, speaking on deep background to selected members of the press, can say that, because WTC7 housed the CIA's New York station and numerous secret technologies, a decision was made to blow the building on national security grounds. However, the spook would likely say, the public cannot be told of this decision because it would divert attention from the war on terror and be fodder for demagogs.
So, yes, say the national security types, there are things that cannot be publicly discussed about 9/11, but...
But, such a "deep background" admission would tend to quiet the press chiefs and discourage further investigation into the events surrounding 9/11.
So, it is important to emphasize not only the WTC7 technical issues, but also technical disparities regarding the twin towers and the other events surrounding 9/11.
Fortunately, a few scientists are beginning to tackle that task.
