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.
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):
