Insurer Caps WTC-Demolition Asbestos Payout at 10 Million

Silverstein laughs all the way to the bank


by Kevin Barrett


In today’s news, American Home Assurance has announced that it is capping payouts for WTC-demolition asbestos claims at a measly $10 million.

The announcement underlines just how much cheaper it is to demolish asbestos-laden skyscrapers without a permit, than to follow legal procedures.

Larry Silverstein, a reputed illicit-sex-industry mobster, purchased the World Trade Center in 2001, shortly after the New York Port Authority lost an asbestos lawsuit and was ordered to remove all asbestos from the Twin Towers.  Cost estimates for that asbestos removal ranged from the low billions to the tens of billions – far more than the outdated, half-empty buildings were worth. (The City of New York had been desperately seeking a way to demolish the Towers since around 1990, but was prevented from doing so by asbestos issues.)

Silverstein would have gone bankrupt within a few years at most had the Towers not been illegally demolished on September 11th, 2001. Thanks to that illegal demolition, Silverstein – who had doubled the WTC’s terrorism insurance and changed it to cash payout when he finalized his purchase in July, 2001 – walked off with a 5 billion dollar cash return on his 100 million dollar investment. When last sighted, Silverstein was back in court asking for another 11 billion dollars from airline insurers.

Silverstein is notorious for confessing on national television to the illegal demolition of World Trade Center Building 7.

former intelligence community insider and  current Veterans Today Editor Gordon Duff stated that the crimes of 9/11 were conceived in New York City, by people linked to organized crime and the Israeli Mossad, as an illegal demolition project, and subsequently sold to corrupt elements of the Bush Administration, the intelligence community, and the military (especially the Armageddonite wing of the US Air Force). Duff added that many of those with direct knowledge of the crimes have come forward, and suggested that non-complicit insiders are working to bring the perpetrators to justice by any available means.

  1. Jeannon’s comment is right on in all respects. I happen to believe that Dr. Judy Wood is also right on in all respects with her conclusion that the towers were “dustified” with advanced directed free-energy technology. Everyone who cares should read her book “Where Did The Towers Go?” and check out her web site which contains the same information (

    I believe this was an advanced “combined effects” operation that used tiny nuclear devices under the towers to turn them into the equivalent lightning rods. The primary energy source was the huge electrical potential that exists in the upper atmosphere which is associated with “energy from the vaccuum” that some more educated readers may be familiar with. The “mostly fusion” devices were designed to create very short-lived cesium isotopes (rather than blast) which created the lightning rod effect. Instead of drawing actual electron flow (current) like lightning, this scalar potential “channel” was used to conduct and focus electomagnetic radiation that was modulated at frequencies optimized to cause dissociation of the material the towers were made of.

    This is a long, complex technical deal that’s probably not appropriate for this blog. Just let me tell you that this is based on my own analysis. I’m not repeating someone else’s theory. I just believe that it fits with ALL the factual observations. We should be seeking to associate all the factual information (e.g., Dr. Wood’s very professional approach) rather than allowing different theories to “compete.”

    Anyway, the destructive mechanism was electromagnetic energy applied at frequencies designed to couple with the Van der Waals forces, which resulted in the molecular dissociation. We know this works. Dissociating water through heat requires temperatures on the order 3000 degrees C, yet most of us watched water dissociate into Hydrogen and Oxygen (electrolysis) at normal termperatures and pressures in our high school labs from the application of very modest voltages and currents.

    So, the dissociation (dustification) of the towers was achieved through a very high-tech operation. Key points:

    – You know just by watching the videos that a normal fire couldn’t cause such extreme “dustification”
    – You know just by watching the videos that the temperatures were not extremely high. There was unscorched paper blowing all over. None of the surrounding buildings were damaged. The surgical precision of what was destoyed and what was relatively untouched as shown in the “after photos” is disturbing.
    – There was an “oozing” feeling to the whole progression of events both before the towers fell and afterwards. It just doesn’t look like a controlled demolition or fire-based damage. However, WTC-7 looks more like a controlled demolition.

    My personal belief is that Building 7 may have hosted an electomagnetic radiation generator that was needed to create the interferometry associated with the “Hutchison Effect” (i.e., the molecular dissociation and other strange results that have been documented). This was the real reason Building 7 needed to collapse – to cover up part of the apparatus. (Big FREON tanks needed for cooling perhaps?)

    I’d love to believe in a simpler solution. There was a great deal of energy required to make this all happen. Gravity and jet fuel would not have been enough. Is there the possibility that an an advanced type of mini-nuke could have created the requisite electomagnetic energy spectrum? Perhaps, but the typical nuclear device ouputs (heat, blast, EMP, or high-energy neutrons) just don’t jive with the observations. All of Judy Wood’s observations do jive, so I have to go with a primarily electomagnetic mechanism.

    We can and should go on and on. Thanks for a superb, factual article Kevin.

    And thank you Gordon for hosting a site where serious people can discuss what could be the most important matter of our time.

  2. Message to the webmaster:
    There’s an audio in this article.
    Is it possible to post the mp3 link as well so that people can download the audio for listening elsewhere.

  3. So more than 3000 people lost their lies so this cretin would not go bankrupt. Just how low can one go. Utterly repulsive.

  4. The key is people near Ground Zero said they felt huge underground explosions just before each WTC tower collapsed…the ground started shaking and “poof” the buildings collapsed and blew away.

    Problem is for the Twin Towers, the basement explosions happened about 14 seconds before the alleged planes hit the buildings.

    It is possible that basement explosions were for other purposes than for actually having something to do with the destruction sequence. Several red hering items were inserted into every aspect of the story fed the public about 9-11 to keep us all wasting time and reasoning in useless time consuming futile dead end directions.

    Any basement explosions could not have been very great, and indeed seismic records show they were weak, otherwise the “slurry wall” or “bath tub” in which the WTC buildings sat would have cracked and all of lower Manhattan would have experienced a devastating deluge from the Hudson River.

    The “rubble pile” of Building 7 was 12 percent of its height so that was sufficient enough for WTC 7’s desteruction to have been accomplished by a conventional or classic “controlled demolition.” The rubble pile for each of the Twin Towers was less than 3 percent of their height so that would rule out conventional controlled demolitions for those two buildings. I think it is not possible to “prove” that the same exact destruction method was used for all three buildings, but the same was definitely used for the Twin Towers.

    We are never going to get anywhere calling for new investigations and speculating on what or what did not effect the destruction of the WTC buildings. IT is good to keep asking lots of questions though to point how impossible the official story is.

    Reason and Rationality in Public Debate: The Case of Rob Balsamo

    and understand that

    Flight 11 did not hit the North Tower;
    Flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon;
    Flight 93 did not crash in Shanksville;
    Flight 175 did not hit the South Tower.

    That has been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    • There were a series of explosions in all 3 WTC towers, including basement blasts in the twin towers just before the alleged airliners hit. In WTC 7, Jennings described the massive explosions on the 4th or 5th floor at about 10:30 am which took out some major support columns. There were also many accounts from First Responders of a huge explosion and rumbling with the “ground shaking” just before the towers collapsed. Others said it felt like a freight train was running beneath their feet.

      The WTC bathtub was significantly damaged on 9/11 with considerable flooding and emergency repairs. Here is a link:

  5. Silversteen: ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse”.

    Obviously he meant he decided to demolish WTC 7. The question is HOW did he plan to demolish the building?

    In a normal building demolition it takes weeks, sometimes months of planning, cutting columns and positioning hundreds (or thousands) of explosive charges to systematically implode the building into a pile of match-sticks in it’s own footprint. Normally the rubble pile is about 1/3rd the height of the original building. Metal filing cabinets, steel fire doors, door knobs, etc, should have survived a normal demolition, but in the 3 WTC towers collapse all of these metal furnishings were turned into dust…along with everything else in the buildings (except paper).

    What demolition scheme did Silversteen plan to use? He decided in the early afternoon to “pull the building” and couple hours later WTC 7 disintegrated and blew away in a cloud of dust?

    The key is people near Ground Zero said they felt huge underground explosions just before each WTC tower collapsed…the ground started shaking and “poof” the buildings collapsed and blew away.
