During a TV interview with PBS for “America Rebuilds” in 2004, WTC 7 owner and Twin Towers leaseholder Larry Silverstein made the following statement about the destruction of Building 7:
|Regardless of WTC leaseholder Larry Silverstein's statements about the fall of WTC7, the evidence of controlled demolition indicates he should be questioned in a real 9/11 investigation|
"I remember getting a call from the fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, 'We've had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.' And they made that decision to pull and then we watched the building collapse."
When Silverstein said "pull it", was he referring to the explosive controlled demolition of the building?
The term “pull” is also used later in the same PBS documentary by a Ground Zero cleanup worker, who said of WTC 6, “It’s not every day you try to pull down an eight-story building with cables.” However,… this procedure is different from using explosives to destroy a much taller building.
In addition, according to research performed by independent 9/11 investigatorJim Hoffman, the term "pull" is not widely used in the demolition industry to refer to the explosive demolition of a building.
If Silverstein wasn't referring to the controlled demolition of WTC 7, what could he have been referring to?
