The Case for a New Building 7 Investigation
I. Foreknowledge of Building 7’s Collapse by Dr. Graeme MacQueen First of a three-part presentation, “The Case for a New Building 7 Investigation” Introduced by Dr. William Pepper, International Human Rights Attorney
Even though World Trade Center Building 7 is said to have been the first steel-framed building in history to undergo total collapse due to fire, there were many people who knew the building was going to collapse long before it did. In this presentation, the evidence for this peculiar foreknowledge will be summarized and its significance discussed. The argument will be made that it is impossible to explain this foreknowledge on the basis of the collapse hypothesis offered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The only hypothesis that explains this foreknowledge is the controlled demolition hypothesis.
II. The Evolution of the Fire-based Theory for Building 7 by Kevin Ryan The second in a three-part presentation, “The Case for a New Building 7 Investigation” Introduction and Commentary by Dr. William Pepper
This presentation will examine the attempts by government-sanctioned investigations to provide a theory for the fire-induced, non-explosive destruction of World Trade Center Building 7. In particular, the presentation will cover the process of investigation conducted by NIST and the final explanation given by NIST for initiation of collapse. NIST’s concept of fire-based collapse initiation will be scrutinized in light of the publicly available evidence.
III. Structural Aspects of Building 7’s Collapse: Why the NIST Report is Non-explanatory by Tony Szamboti The third in a three-part presentation, “The Case for a New Building 7 Investigation” Introduction by Dr. William Pepper
This presentation will provide an overview of the construction features, enormity, and strength of World Trade Center Building 7. It will help listeners understand why no building with a steel framed superstructure has ever collapsed through itself for any reason other than controlled demolition, and will provide evidence for why the NIST World Trade Center Building 7 Report is not a satisfactory explanation of the collapse.
Failure to Report: A Panel Discussion Among Journalists 3/26/11
Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU Leslie Griffith, Journalist Craig Unger, Author Dick Russell, Author
This panel will address the US media’s tendency to look away from major stories of all kinds by dismissing them as mere “conspiracy theories.” First will be a discussion the press’s silence on the strange collapse of Building 7, and the panelists will move on from there to discuss other mysteries or scandals that, although they merit serious investigation, are either laughed off or ignored. Among these forbidden stories are the “OctoberSurprise” of1980, the fate of TWA Flight 800,the CIA’s reported drug dealing in America’s inner cities, the Oklahoma City bombing and the epidemic of widespread election fraud since 2000.
