From Wikipedia: 7 World Trade Center:
The original Seven World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the September 11, 2001, attacks, was built in the mid-1980s.
A lot of people forget that WTC 7 was destroyed that day, too.
They say it was destroyed by fire, even though no skyscraper was ever destroyed by fire before or after September 11, 2001; but, along with WTC 1 and WTC 2, three skyscrapers were all destroyed by fire at the same time at the same place.
And, WTC 7 did not get hit by an aircraft.
Why did it go down?
7 World Trade Center housed Salomon Smith Barney; American Express Bank International; Standard Chartered Bank; Provident Financial Management; ITT Hartford Insurance Group; First State Management Group, Inc.; Federal Home Loan Bank; and NAIC Securities.
There's a good reason. Money could have been laundered through the computers in WTC 7, just like it was laundered through the computers in WTC 1 & 2.
The government agencies housed at 7 World Trade Center were the Secret Service, the Department of Defense, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC),...
There's another good reason. With the SEC disabled, who can investigate the money laundering.
... the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management, the Internal Revenue Service Regional Council (IRS), and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
Whoa! Here's another one! The CIA had an office there....
From Report: CIA Lost Office In WTC, NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2001:
(AP) A secret office operated by the CIA was destroyed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, seriously disrupting intelligence operations.
The undercover station was in 7 World Trade Center, a smaller office tower that fell several hours after the collapse of the twin towers on Sept. 11, a U.S. government official said. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that immediately after the attack, a special CIA team scoured the rubble in search of secret documents and intelligence reports stored in the station, either on paper or in computers. It was not known whether the efforts were successful.
Seriously disrupting the operations of the CIA....
That's another good reason to "pull" WTC 7. (Google that expression and see what you get.)
A CIA spokesman declined to comment on the existence of the office, which was first reported in Sunday's editions of The New York Times.
Oh, sure: no comment. What did you expect?
The New York station was behind the false front of another federal organization, which the Times did not identify. The station was a base of operations to spy on and recruit foreign diplomats stationed at the United Nations, while debriefing selected American business executives and others willing to talk to the CIA after returning from overseas.
Aha! This is where they might have watched money laundering and overseas financial activity from!
The agency's officers in New York often work undercover, posing as diplomats and business executives, among other things. They have been deeply involved in counter-terrorism efforts in the New York area, working jointly with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies.
The CIA's main New York office was unaffected by the attacks, but agents have been sharing space at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, and have borrowed other federal government offices in the city.
The agency is prohibited from conducting domestic espionage operations against Americans, but it maintains stations in a number of major United States cities, where CIA case officers try to meet and recruit students and other foreigners to return to their countries and spy for the United States.
I'll bet the jihadis liked that!
The New York station was believed to have been the largest and most important CIA domestic station outside the Washington area.
No wonder WTC 7 collapsed that day!
