9/11 truthers have full-page ad in City Pages [IMAGE]

On the 12th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, a group called Minnesota 9/11 Truth wants you to think again about what happened that day.

SEE ALSO: FEMA yanks Minn. coloring book with 9/11 terror attack image

The group has a full-page ad just inside the back cover of today's City Pages print edition raising suspicions about the circumstances of the collapse of the World Trade Center #7 building.

"On September 11, late in the afternoon, World Trade Center #7 collapsed into its own footprint," the ad says. "Although the twin towers were shown multiple times, 12 years later very few citizens are aware of this third WTC building that collapsed on the same day, in the same manner and in the same complex."

The ad then goes on to list these "remarkable facts" about WTC #7's collapse:
-- It was not hit by an airplane.

-- The collapse was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.

-- The 47 story building, similar in size to the IDS Tower, collapsed at free fall speed in only 7 seconds.

-- First skyscraper in history to collapse due to office fires.

-- The BBC and CNN both reported that it collapsed before it actually did.

-- Authorities cleared the area prior to the collapse.
The ad asks readers to check out rethink911.org, and concludes with this message:
So why would a group of citizens have to pay for an ad to inform you of this? Because the media, including publicly funded MPR and TPT, will not cover this topic. This ad is paid for by Minnesota 9/11 Truth, a non-partisan citizen action group. If you think these facts should be known to other citizens, please help us with a contribution to help defray the cost of this ad and continuing our work.
Without further ado, here's the ad (click to enlarge):

Clearly you people are mathematicians. Genius'. Experts in physics. Next time I have a seemingly unanswerable question I will just post here and get my problem solved quickly. If it makes sense inside your skull it must be true(I will refrain from identifying what's inside your skull because it is a mystery). Try saying " I don't know". There ya go! That wasn't so bad was it. Good lord! I hope your careers are not too important.

If "they" had control over the demo, why did they wait until 7+ hours after the towers fell? Why not make all three buildings fall at once? Or at least all within the same hour? Wouldn't that be easier to hide?

If I was blowing up a building full of sensitive and classified information, under the cover of a terrorist attack, I would make sure that building fell within 7 minutes, not 7 hours.

OK, question. Building 7 collapsed 7+ hours after the twin towers? If I was planning a conspiracy and wanted to hide a building demolition with the tower "bombings", and I had absolute control over making Building 7 fall, why wait 7 hours? Why not implode it within minutes of the planes hitting? Would that not be a better time to hide in the chaos? Can anyone answer that question without calling me stupid?

Thanks for the comments, the thoughtful ones of course make for a better discussion. 

After learning of WTC 7 yesterday via the ad ran in City Pages I went out to scrutinize the claims of the ad.  Some of them seem unbelievable.  However, they do check out.  Not from "tin foil" hats web sites (as the sponsors have been called) but from the actual govt investigations.  In this case, investigation is used loosely since they did not follow the protocol for fire investigation and the process of scientific discovery cannot be replicated or scrutinized because they will not release the inputs.

I WAS receptive to this message. I HAVE asked many questions and watched many videos. But I'm done with being called stupid and being told to "wake up" simply because I asked a question. Just answer questions without name calling! You'll sound much less like a freak, and perhaps more believable.

I find it amusing that some people think questioning the official story of what happened on 9/11 is somehow disrespectful to the people/ families of people that lost their lives 12 years ago. So does that mean it is disrespectful to all of the soldiers and civilians who have lost their lives to question whether or not we ever should have started a war in Iraq as well?

September 11 was the day NYC learned what a "surgical strike on a high-value regime target with no boots on the ground" really means.


We should all remember that.... same for Pearl Harbor too?

And look where that No boots on the ground got us.

thanks to this @Cory Walker dude for telling us the truth. here is his best stuff:

"You have to know what was in the building, that building housed the evidence in hundreds of cases of corruption in our govt and Wall Street, so they basically burned the evidence to the ground and no one paid any attention because they were focused on the twin towers,"

makes sense...all those incriminating documents and evidence things...why wouldn't they be there?

uhh who collected all that dope stuff? someone with all that nefarious information about our govt and wall street would be mighty powerful....hmmmm....barack obama maybe....maybe.....nah nah

i dont know who collected all that damning and nefarious evidence housed in wtc 7

"so they basically burned the evidence to the ground..."

wait wait, who is they? why would wall street care? why do i care?

does anything even matter?

How is it that all of you 'official story' believers hire experts such as doctors, dentists, attorneys, architects, accountants and plumbers to do the work you aren't trained/qualified to do but when it comes to 911, you'd rather believe an administration that lied you (and your tax money) into a war of aggression over experts risking their career?! 

As the advertisment suggests - ReThink 911.

I like the insults because it distracts me from thinking about the questions raised in the ad. I don't know who carried out the attacks on 9-11 only those that truly were the perpetrators know, but I do know science - specifically physics and I know that the 3 buildings that collapsed COULD NOT have happened from the planes crashing into the towers.  The collapse was at free fall speed on all 3 buildings.  What happened to the steel support columns that were designed to withstand a 747 crash? Go beyond the crackpot wingnuts and look at what Architects & Engineers For 9/11 truth and Pilots for 9/11 Truth are saying.  Those of us with a scientific background (I am a structural engineer) know there is more to this story. AGAIN I AM NOT POINTING A FINGER AT THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION - but the science of what happened does not add up with the official narration of events.

The problem is that tomorrow, people will go back to chasing money, materialism, and pumping up their egos with lies they tell themselves, at least today they can't run away from the date, so their attention is at least somewhat focused on what happened to our country at the hands of the Bush crime family, yet they have no idea who murdered their loved ones, they don't even understand the religion that they are blaming for the attack, it's all almost too sad to look at, this country is illiterate, education is on it's death bed, and when people like myself question a power hungry greedy bastard like Bush, we are called crazy or un-American, when in fact the only real Americans are the ones who are questioning what we were told, because we HONOR THE DEAD BY TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO MURDERED THEM, and we dishonor not only the dead, but also GOD when we blame an entire religion based on ignorance and fear, delivered to you from the very murderers themselves...remember the color coded terrorist threat levels, remember how they told you how scared you should be each day based on a color, remember how Cheney told us we were at threat level 'very high' just before the 2004 election, remember....

Probably, but I'm tired of being nice about this subject, this society is disgusting and beyond stupid, people moved on and went right back to chasing money and materialism and once a year they pretend they are emotionally disturbed by 9/11, but they won't take one minute to actually deal with the proof that Bush was behind it, as far as I'm concerned, if you don't care about the truth or are too damn stupid to see the obvious lies, then you might as well be an honorary member of the Bush crime family...no disrespect to you personally, just beyond frustrated with the moronic mentality of a nation of mental midgets...

Is it respectful to let this coverup continue? Is it respectful to let these people's deaths be blamed on an entire religion when infact they were killed to give us reason for war and to cover up corruption in our govt and on Wall Street? If you lost someone, and the murder was covered up, how would you respect their memory? Would you go along with the coverup because it's easier to swallow, or would you fight until your last breath to bring the truth to light so that your loved ones memory isn't dirtied by lies? Grow some balls and face the truth, even with your head buried in the sand, you only need to stand up to see clearly...

You have to know what was in the building, that building housed the evidence in hundreds of cases of corruption in our govt and Wall Street, so they basically burned the evidence to the ground and no one paid any attention because they were focused on the twin towers, ask any magician, it's all about what you don't see while you are being distracted...wake up...

Cory Walker

Your ignorance Terrie is what is disrespectful, you have no damn clue what you are talking about, the Bush admin was 100% behind this, and I'm not going to bother dropping facts on you because I doubt you could understand them, so instead of just insulting you, I'm going to ask you to go watch loosechange or any of the other documentaries made about the lies we were told, or you can just use simple common sense, when Bush took office there was NO reason to go to war with anyone, let alone 2 countries in the mideast that most moronic Americans couldn't find on a map, but of course the moment those buildings went down, people turned off their brains and chanted for war (similar to when people vote for republicans because their candidate mentions Jesus and they just turn off their brains and vote GOP), and if you have enough brain cells left after having your mind blown by the facts, go look at the pipelines that were built in Iraq & Afghanistan during our wars, and ask yourself who is making money off these illegal disasters...make sure you check out DICKHEAD Cheney and Halliburton (funny that Halliburton was on the brink of bankruptcy before Iraq, and is pulling in hundreds of millions since Iraq), oh but I'm just a crazy conspiracy theorist, forgive me, I'll go put my tinfoil hat back on...

@Tammy Belka 

Because no plane hit Building 7 and an early implosion would be an obvious and overt demolition. Waiting gave them the excuse to claim it was caused by fires. The question you should be asking is why did they show the collapse only once and why wasn't it showed repeatedly like towers 1 and 2. Further, why was it left out of the official 911 report and why are most Americans unaware of the event? Which brings us full circle. ReThink 911.

@Cory Walker how do you know waht was in the building - who compiled all the evidence of all the corruption and atrocities.

why would anyone keep information that is so damaging - wouldnt it have been burned long ago?

your shit doesnt hold water

@Cory Walker According to the sex offender database "Cory Walker" has been arrested for bestiality 4 times since 09/11/2001.   All part of the conspiracy?   I'll let you people decide for yourself.   If you don't see him in there its because the Bush Administration covered it up.  Who will you believe?  The truth or the lies of the liberal media?    

MicheleBachmann
MicheleBachmann topcommenter

@Cory Walker The Bush Administration fucked up everything they did.  George W. Bush was nearly killed by a pretzel and a segway.   Dick Cheney shot his friend in the face.  You are the stupidest scum on the planet to believe this nonsense.  Fucking idiot.  If you think the Bush Administration was behind it wouldn't the Obama Administration then prove that to permanently discredit Republicans?    If there is a grand conspiracy wouldn't the Wall Street overloads want it to come out so one political party would gain absolute power for 20 years or so?   What would be the gain to cause 9/11?   9/11 happened and Bush still had to lie to go to war with Iraq.   Nothing you idiots say makes sense politically or strategically.    You are dumb fucking children.

j.reiter

Your reasoning is along the same lines as, if it really happened, wouldn't more people be aware of the conspiracy? The thing is a lot of people are aware of what happened and for you to claim that no one can know for sure what was in building7 is a joke. Why is it Jews always deny the established facts and the obvious?

@j.reiter you dumb fucking hick. throw some links up to all the nefarious documents housed in lower Manhattan in building 7.

YOUR DUMB AS FUCK 

the idea that there were incriminating documents that needed to be destroyed makes zero sense.

oh and i see you called me a jew again.

so you are proud to be a fascist nazi?
