Video: Donald Rumsfeld Claims He Never Heard of WTC 7

Most people know that there were three (not two) buildings which came down during the September 11 terror attacks.

However, Donald Rumsfeld who was the secretary of defense at the time, says he had never heard of a third skyscraper coming down on 9/11.

The cause of  WTC 7’s complete collapse is a crucial point that has been raised by 9/11 conspiracy theorists, since the building was not struck by an airplane nor was was there any other apparent explanation for it’s total structural failure

WTC 7 experienced free fall into its own footprint on the afternoon of 9/11 and was even reported 26 minutes before it happened by the BBC!

As Russia Insider points out: You’d think Donald Rumsfeld, the secretary of defense on that day, would be aware of the fall of WTC 7, but he claims not. He was too “busy with the Pentagon being hit” to learn about it. That might be a valid excuse on the day of the attack, but has he really been too “busy” to learn about it at any point in the last 15 years? Was he too “busy” to find out about it while testifying to the 9/11 commission or during the whole course of investigation of the attacks?

In the video below, journalist Luke Rudkowski confronts the former secretary of defense who was on duty on 9/11. Rumsfeld recently made national headlines after being on the opie and anthony show, a national radio station saying he had no clue what WTC building 7 actually is!

Rumsfeld’s claim that he had never heard of WTC 7 does not reconcile with the facts about the positions he held along with those of his colleagues and subordinates.

Washingtons blog reports:

It certainly doesn’t reconcile with the fact that Rudy Giuliani gave Rumsfeld a personal tour of Ground Zero just two months after the attacks. Surely Rumsfeld noticed the huge pile of still-smoking rubble that was once the building where Giuliani’s 23rd-floor emergency bunker was housed. They were photographed standing right across the street from it.

Rumsfeld was the chairman of the advisory board for a company that occupied nearly the entirety of WTC 7. On 9/11 he led the DOD—another tenant of the building. Explosive disposal units from both the Army and the Navy (DOD entities) were scheduled to meet in WTC 7 on the morning of 9/11, ostensibly to discuss terrorism. A DOD-sponsored terrorism exercise was scheduled for that morning in the same area. Moreover, Rumsfeld’s long-time business associate Peter Janson ran AMEC Construction, a company hired to clean-up the debris at the WTC complex (after having renovated the exact area where Flight 77 was said to have hit the Pentagon).

And as stated above, Rumsfeld had been a paid consultant to CIA director George Tenet in the three years prior to 9/11. Immediately after WTC 7 was destroyed, the CIA ordered the immediate area around the building to be surrounded by FBI agents. According to the New York Times, the CIA then “dispatched a special team to scour the rubble.” Reportedly this was to retrieve secret documents. But was the CIA, in conjunction with (or posing as) the Secret Service, also coordinating the military’s ordnance disposal units in their search for explosives in the debris?

Rumsfeld’s comments should be considered in light of the fact that he was among the leaders of a concerted plan to lie about Iraq’s WMDs. Similarly, there has been a pattern of lying about WTC 7 by government officials. The official report on the destruction of the building is patently and provably false and followed a long string of false explanations. When government scientists finally admitted that WTC 7 was in free-fall, indicating that they had previously lied about that fact, even their body language revealed the deception.

When we remember 9/11, we should remember that those crimes initiated and continue to drive the devastating “War on Terror.” We should also remember that war is based on deception and the official account of 9/11 is a prime example. We see the lies about 9/11 everyday as they are still being told, like the one readily seen in the form of a 47-story building experiencing free fall and nearly every statement made about it by government officials since that time.
