9/11 Credibility Problem

36% of Americans still do not believe the official account of 9/11. Why not?
In the PBS documentary, “America Rebuilds,” broadcast in September 2002, Larry Silverstein, who had the lease on the World Trade Center, said that WTC 7 was brought down by a decision of the authorities on the scene: “I remember getting a call from the, er, 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 to pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse.”

Two striking facts jump out from this quote. One is that fire was not raging in WTC 7. The other is that “to pull” a building means to bring it down by engineered demolition. For WTC 7 to be pulled on the late afternoon of September 11, it would already have had to be wired for demolition. Why was WTC 7 wired for demolition?
