Richard Gage, AIA, leads the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. The group includes thousands of professionals debunking the government’s version of what happened to the World Trade Center.
On Friday, Gage – who has considerable experience designing large buildings – spoke out about WTC owner Larry Silverstein’s bombshell revelation that the new World Trade Center Building 7 was designed BEFORE 9/11.
“It is pretty incredible,” said Gage, interviewed on False Flag Weekly News.
Gage pointed out that for construction on the new Building 7 to begin in May of 2002, the official time frame – which presupposes that 9/11 was a shocking and unforeseen event – was highly improbable, even before Silverstein’s latest confession.
“Let’s just set aside the revelation, as damning as it is, if it’s true, and we’ll come to that. Let’s just think in terms of the incredible disaster that happened on 9/11, how the entire country was in shock, and how almost everything was put to a standstill. Particularly in New York, and particularly at the site of the World Trade Center. Imagine, after these three buildings come down – and of course the media didn’t even tell the engineering and architectural community about the third tower (WTC-7) at all, since it wasn’t played on TV, most architects and engineers know nothing about it.
“But you’ve got three months after 9/11, let’s just give it three months, to even begin to come out of the ashes, and the state of emotional devastation, to even begin to select a designer for a new building. And then construction begins six months after that!
“So figure, they’re not even going to select a designer for three months. Or if they are, it’s going to take three months to find one. So … if in January 2002 they began the actual design process and engineering process of a 50-story skyscraper like the new Building 7, it would take a year or more, probably two years – especially at that site, and especially over the top of a new Con Edison electrical substation. Which this new WTC-7 is built over the top of, just like the old WTC-7 that went down.
“We’ve got construction starting in June (or May, according to Wikipedia -ed.) of 2002. They could not have started design until January 2002 under normal circumstances. That’s a six month design process! So we have a huge problem with the sequence of events here, even without Larry’s startling admission that their first design meeting was in April of 2000. Which is more likely to be true!”
“So what if what he was saying was true? He’d be asked by the worldwide media: ‘Wait a minute! Under what auspices did you have a first design meeting (in April 2000)? How were you going to get rid of the old one? You can’t just do a controlled demolition in downtown Manhattan! It doesn’t work like that. What did you imagine was going to happen to the old WTC-7?”
What did happen to WTC-7, of course, was an illegal controlled demolition – conducted under the cover of an alleged “terrorist surprise attack” – on 9/11/2001 by Larry Silverstein and co-conspirators.
Only by planning the rebuilding of WTC-7 well in advance of the 9/11 New Pearl Harbor could construction have begun when it did.

If they do not arrest Mr. Silverstein and his accomplices, get ready for revolution.
