  1. Great to see lots of 911 comments there including eye witness testimony from one commentator ” Wow! Just saw it come down a couple blocks from my flat! Still shaking from the boom. Being from New Jersey it was a bit of a flashback of 9/11. ”

    “Looks awfully like the 47-storey skyscraper – Building 7 that collapsed at free fall speed into its own footprint on 911 despite not being hit by a plane? Thankfully many building experts, engineers, architects and demolition experts have explained the mysterious collapse of Building 7 and have provided forensic evidence relating to the destruction of the 3 world Trade Centre skyscrapers and their demand for a new WTC investigation. Maybe one day Mr Loiseaux will join them in their campaign?”
