If 9/11 was “an inside job,” why would the US government deliberately want to destroy the World Trade Center? Possibly because the largest field office of the CIA was part of Building 7. The Central Intelligence Agency’s clandestine New York station was “cleaned out” in the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center:
“The C.I.A.’s undercover New York station was in the 47-story building at 7 World Trade Center, one of the smaller office towers destroyed in the aftermath of the collapse of the twin towers that morning. All of the agency’s employees at the site were safely evacuated soon after the hijacked planes hit the twin towers, the officials said. (James Risen, “Secret C.I.A. Site in New York Was Destroyed on Sept. 11,” The New York Times, November 4, 2001)
The New York station was believed to have been the largest and most important CIA domestic station outside the Washington area. “But United States intelligence officials emphasize that there is no evidence that the hijackers knew that the undercover station was in the World Trade Center complex.” The primary field office of the CIA devoted much attention to global climate models. The 1990s was the warmest decade of the 20th century, and by some estimates the warmest decade of the past thousand years. CIA scientists believed man-made changes to the world’s climate would promote dramatic swings in the weather: more floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. But how would global warming impact the biggest field office of the CIA? How would its demolition affect New York City?
Klaus Jacob, senior research scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University predicted an eight-foot costal storm surge: “Instead of every fifty years, it could happen every five years, and that’s not good for a city that claims to be the world financial capital to see its financial infrastructure flooded every five years, and business interrupted, and all the things that go with it.”
By the 1990s, plans were made to relocate the key field office of the CIA from New York to higher ground. Denver, Colorado was an encouraging site. In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy hit New York City.
It was the second-worst hurricane in United States history, responsible for 117 deaths. Hurricane Sandy caused $62 billion in damage, making it the nation’s most expensive storm.
While it was a Category 2 storm off the coast of the Northeastern United States, the storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km). The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said that the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy was the worst disaster in the 108-year history of the New York City subway system. Seawater flooded the Ground Zero construction site. By then however the principal field office of the CIA had already been moved out of New York.
“When Professor Klaus Jacob looks out over the World Trade Center site he sees a potential disaster in the making. It’s not the threat of more terrorism. Jacob worries that in the coming decades whatever is built on the site will be vulnerable to the combination of rising seas and more intense storms aggravated by climate change.”
“It may be hard to visualize the potential danger global warming could have on such a massive and resilient city as New York. But one major study shows that during a class 3 hurricane, which is not even the most severe type of storm, lower Manhattan would become its own island. The financial district, city hall, the World Trade Center site, all would be separated from the rest of New York by a mass of water.” (“Degrees of Concern — Climate Change and New York City’s Future,” PRI, Public Radio International, 2011)
Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura thinks that Denver airport sits above a giant network of tunnels that form a secret basecamp. (Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura is an American television series broadcast on truTV that premiered in December 2009.)
“The airport has been plagued by conspiracy theories about its true purpose almost since the day construction crews broke ground on it in the mid-1990s. There are also a ton of conspiracy tales about the murals in DEN, as well as the fact that it’s supposedly shaped like a Swastika. As you drive into the airport, you’re greeted by a giant horse with glowing red eyes, and one of the terminals is decorated with a massive statue of Anubis, the ancient Egyptian god of death. Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura thinks that Denver airport sits above a giant network of tunnels that form a secret basecamp for government officials in the event of apocalypse.” (Annalee Newitz, “Proof that Denver Airport is one of the most evil places on Earth,” Gizmodo, June 2, 2011)
The main terminal of the Denver International Airport (DIA) was designed by Fentress Bradburn Architects and completed in 1995. NORAD is not far from there. The Denver airport is allegedly “filled to the brim” with occult murals and symbols everywhere you look.
“Brian Dunning, host of a podcast called Skeptoid which examines unusual claims from a skeptical, science-based perspective, researched conspiracies about the Denver airport. He told Discovery News, “It’s nearly impossible to summarize the vast number of ordinary events and objects at Denver International Airport that have been misinterpreted, twisted, and sensationalized into ‘evidence’ for a Zionist New World Order Illuminati conspiracy to control and kill American citizens. There are facets of its planning, its design, its construction, its operational history, and even its artwork that conspiracy theorists point at as proof that we’re all doomed.” (Benjamin Radford, “World Domination From Denver Airport?” Discovery, December 8, 2011)
When the “New American Century” was sketched out, the warning of climate change and its adverse effects to New York City allegedly inspired the CIA to relocate its main field office to the new Denver airport (Ravened Airport).
However, the old site was not merely an empty office space that anyone could rent. Its basement was larger than a military base, and far more important to national security. Controlled demolition was the only way to hide traces of its sophisticated technology.
Consequently, US officials would never be held accountable for the “decision to pull” the World Trade Center. From that day on, all U.S. airports would be subject to the utmost security so as not to draw attention to the defense of the new Denver airport. But using it as a pretext to start a war and to bring to the forefront unwarranted security technologies were plausible violations of administrative power.
There was nothing immoral about relocating the main field office of the CIA to higher ground. It was “a noble cause” and hundreds of top CIA agents were actively involved. A decade of planning was required to transfer the systems that would be dramatically affected by changes in the global climate. But the NORAD drill was sabotaged and the concluding evacuation process failed, causing thousands of deaths.
