Foreknowledge of WTC 7's Collapse

Numerous emergency responders recall either having advanced knowledge or receiving warnings that WTC 7 would collapse. At least 26 such accounts can be found in the 'oral histories' -- transcripts of interviews with F.D.N.Y. and E.M.S. responders recorded within 5 months of the attack.

WTC 7 Collapse Foreknowledge

9-11 Research

More than one television network prematurely reported the collapse of WTC 7. The BBC unequivocally reported the collapse starting about 23 minutes before it occurred.

Premature Announcements on Television Broadcasts


A review of archived footage of television stations in the Washington D.C. area shows that, of five stations including affiliates of ABC, NBC, and CBS, only the BBC and CNN made premature announcements of the collapse, and those were separated by 35 minutes. This weighs against suggestions that the premature announcements reflect pre-written reports of the collapse posted on wire services.

Avoidance of Attack Targets

Several high-level government and industry officials appeared to make special plans to avoid the targets of the 9/11/01 attacks. These actions are suggestive, if not indicative, of foreknowledge of the attack.

Organizational Changes Suggesting Foreknowledge

The World Trade Center, whose construction began in the 1960s, was managed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey through mid-2001. Then, just six weeks before the attack, control was transferred to a consortium of private companies led by Silverstein Properties, which secured insurance polices specifically covering terrorst attacks.
