Points Not To Forget About WTC Complex & 911
Walter Burien - CAFR1
| I make my comments as a prior tenant of WTC1 from 1978-1980.
Watch as the tower falls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OASbBr99heQ You will clearly see the effect of the squib-charges systematically going off several floors (8 to 10 floor) below the collapse line on the way down from both sides of the tower visible. When the squib charges explode, the ones you can see not yet masked by collapsing debris, they send out the distinctive puffs of smoke / dust blasting out and through the widows. The heat signatures on floors where no fires were burning, combined with spectral light element analysis seen establishes those "puffs of smoke" as coming rather conclusively from squib-charges going off. Done so to weaken the entire structure for demolition collapse.
The towers were built so that the core was designed to act as a guide post for the floors suspended from the core in the event of catastrophic failure. The core was designed to be left standing in the event of catastrophic failure. This was done to prevent the tower from falling "over" and hitting 20 or so other buildings. There are no if's or buts per the core remaining standing excluding controlled demolition below the impact damage zone, end of story period.
The WTC towers, Port Authority of NY and NJ, the owners of the complex knew the towers needed to be demolished. It came to their attention back in 1978 when asbestos was banned that the several hundred tons of asbestos fire insulation used on the internal structure was a BIG problem. As the asbestos broke down over time, the fine particles could circulate throughout the building exposing the tenants to the asbestos and law suits could amount in the billions of dollars.
In 1980 they installed a very expensive special air filtration system in the two towers to curtail spread of those fine particle. (I note also it was determined that if a level 4 or 5 hurricane with maintained winds of over 215 MPH made a direct hit on the towers they in high probability would not be able to withstand the millions of metric tons of wind force hitting the flat surfaced side walls) Port Authority then commissioned in 1979 for an estimate of the cost to demolish the towers. The price came back at 8 billion dollars and that did not include the law suits that could amount into extra billions of dollars from individuals who claimed they were damaged by being exposed to the asbestos when the towers were demolished.
Well, the "staged" collapse on 911, solved that problem and they got two bangs for the buck. It also initiated the go ahead for the wars in the middle east which I note were on the drawing boards over at the Pentagon and the Bush White House to be initiated on the exact dates the first invasions took place, and those dates were set 6-months before the towers collapsed.
Additionally the Port Authority was trying to sell the WTC complex after realizing their problem starting in 1978. No takers..
Then comes along Larry Silverstein in 2000, a joint US and Israeli citizen that takes out a 99-year lease for 3-billion dollars that required monthly payments of about 37-million dollars a month. He then secures a double indemnity insurance policy for "terrorism attacks" with the policy providing a maximum total coverage of 7-billion dollars. The policy issued and the signed ink was not even dry yet on that policy and down goes the towers and in goes Silverstien's claim for 7-billion. He settled on a 6.5 billion dollar payout and only had 4-months pay-ins to the rental contract. What a payout profit on about a 148-million dollar pay-in that in effect the monthly lessee payments were already reimbursed him and extra from the rents being paid from the tenants.
Did Silverstien contribute as a gift $$$$$ directly to the re-building by Port Authority of NY and NJ of the new towers? No, but he did though as a business deal put up 1.4 billion dollars in advance payments for construction to lock in the prime and substantial rental space in the new complex. The complex is being rebuilt primarily at taxpayer's expense, offset by advance lessees payments - http://gfoa.net/cafr/COA2012/NewYorkAndNewJerseyPortAuthorityNJ.pdf
Page 84 of the .pdf document per Silverstein shows total in, and a search in the .pdf document for WTC or Silverstein will bring up many other relevant comments made in the report.
I note on the new WTC Tower design, not a flat side surface design. The new air-dynamic angled design can withstand up to 270 MPH winds. (They were not going to make that mistake of a flat side-wall design twice. Hurricane level 4 or 5 direct hit, not a problem now.. )
Math for Silverstein: 6.5 billion dollars (payout) - 1.4 billion dollars (advance lessees payments) = a Big smile on his face.
And the Beat Goes on!
