Charlie Rose interviews Larry Silverstein

Keenan's picture

Although this interview is from more than 6 years ago (Thursday, February 27, 2003), it seems that not many people have seen it. In this hour long interview, Larry Silverstein is asked some interesting questions about why he bought the WTC center, his plans for rebuilding, where he was on the fatefull day, etc., and his reactions and expressions are interesting, to say the least. AT 4:42 in the video When Charlie Rose asks Larry "Where were you on 9/11?", Larry seems to have been taken a little bit by surprise and kind of stumbles over his words as he explains that he just happened to be home that morning instead of being up at the top in "Windows of the World Restaurant", where he admits that he usually would have been and was in fact every single morning since he bought the WTC towers 6 weeks prior on July 26th: "My mornings were spent usually at a breakfast meeting at Windows, an eight o'clock breakfast meeting at the top..." His justifications for attempting to collect $6.7 Billion by claiming 2 seperate terrorist attacks that are worth $3.35 Billion each is a bit amusing.

At 4:42 in the above video Larry is asked, "Where were you on September Eleventh?". Listen to it and notice how he reacts. he seems a little bit defensive. The video below takes that part and slows it down to see his facial expressions better.

Larry Silverstein claims that WTC 7 fell because the antenna

of the North tower sliced through WTC 7 and ruptured the fuel lines for the emergency diesel fuel tanks. In this video of WeAreChange confronting Silverstein, Luke Rudowski asks Larry what he meant by "pull it", and Larry evades and diverts and refuses to answer the question, then says "next question" when Luke presses him. What a sleaze bag.

"will there be any female shopping?" video... disgusting

Larry was at the dentist LOL

I read an article on Lucky Larry, want to say NY Times couple years ago, mostly flattering piece, but the rub was he said he was at a dentist appt that morning, what crazy dumb luck! Anyone else recall it? not sure how to find it now, not even positive it was NY Times, but it was some sort of major mockingbird rag like that. Anyone recall the article I'm referring to?

Larry Silverstein and 9/11

See this article about Larry Silverstein and the discussion in this thread about the alleged phone call he made to his "insurance carrier" about demolishing WTC 7 on 9/11.

CNN issued a statement that

CNN issued a statement that building 7 had crashed down, BEFORE it actually did. Fishy? I think so!
The whole thing was scripted, and the news stations are in on it - which is why we won't see anything else than ridicule (of people that belive in the inside job) in the mainstream media.
