On September 11th 2001, BBC World reported at 4:57pm Eastern Time that the Salomon Brothers Building (more commonly known as WTC7 or World Trade Building 7) had collapsed.

This even made the 5pm EST headlines. What is bizarre is that the building did not actually collapse until 5:20pm EST.

9/11 was unusual enough without BBC World being able to foretell the destiny of WTC 7.

What is even stranger, is that the women reporter is telling the world that the building had collapsed when you can see it in the background over her left shoulder!

Then at 5:15pm EST, just five minutes before the building did actually collapse, her live connection from New York to London mysteriously fails.

So the question is, how did the BBC learn that WTC7 collapsed 23 minutes before it actually did?

Building Seven was 47 storys, modern in design with structural steel throughout, yet symmetrically collapsed in 6.5 seconds. Was someone leaking information out of turn? Is this the smoking gun where the coordination broke down?

Never before or since has a steel framed skyscraper collapsed due to fire. Most people who find out about WTC7, believe it was brought down by a controlled demolition, even demolition experts agree on this.

Thanks to 9/11 Blogger for this video link.
