Truthers’ Times Square ad shows WTC 7 fall repeatedly on 13th anniversary of 9/11

wtc7The one quality that may surpass the persistence of “9/11 truthers” — an ability to offend our sensibilities — was on full display in Times Square on the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

To commemorate the anniversary, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is running a huge digital ad in Midtown Manhattan showing World Trade Center 7 collapsing in what is described as a “classic controlled demolition.”

“WTC 7 came down in a classic controlled demolition,” the advertisement says. “The government says fire brought it down, but anyone who watches the video can see otherwise.”

EPIC MISTAKE! Justice Dept. staffer accidentally calls
wrong office – Issa’s – asks them to leak IRS docs to media!

A building that is supposed to be World Trade Center 7 falling plays on a loop in the background of the ad.

Real classy.

In support of the bizarre theory that the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 attacks, conspiracy theorists claim that WTC7 fell due to controlled explosives — never mind that the myth had been debunked repeatedly.

A message on the group’s website includes this passage:

“Even though we will no longer be speaking directly to the folks at The New York Times, most Times employees will see the ad on a daily basis, thus making it impossible for them to ignore the truth about what happened at the World Trade Center on 9/11. The upside, of course, is that millions of people will be treated to a high-impact viewing experience of the truth about the third skyscraper destroyed on 9/11.”

It’s surprising that someone would lease “truthers” the ad space — just four miles from where the World Trade Center once stood — to run an ad that is certain to bring back haunting memories for thousands of New Yorkers.
