Uh O, the first little problem with the BBC WTC 7 documentary.

Hi everyone,

This is the first of my posts on my Kiwi blog in reaction to the BBC Doc. about WTC 7.
In my opinion it is an amazing tool to bring more people the truth. It has brought the events to the fore again in peoples minds and the testimonies and evidence we accumulated over the years is so vast that is should not be a problem to tear the BBC doc to pieces.

Here I go; really hoping that my mind would be put too rest with this BBC documentary so that I could safely go back to being a sheeple again. It was so well made, I mean I didn’t even feel the need to hide it because it seemed so complete: Clearly a lot of time and money spend on getting it just right. Lots of specialists who clearly put in a lot of time and effort to giving us the answer we needed but than those pesky little things called facts muck it all up again. Damn. LOL.

So let’s get on with the always enjoyable task of ripping yet another well made piece of garbage apart!

Problem number 1: Barry Jennings testimony.

Barry Jennings was the Deputy Director, Emergency Services Department, New York City Housing Authority. Maybe you saw him as one of the eyewitnesses on the day of 911.

The Barry Jennings "Bodies" Claim -- False, Now that the BBC Interviews Him . . .

Barry Jennings seems to have just exposed himself on the BBC, so this looks like it was a set-up to make us look "confused" or misrepresenting our sources. Perhaps Jennings had some other reason that just ended up making us look bad. It sounds like it was intentional since it's unlikely someone would be unclear about such a powerful detail. Some on here were pointing out what a huge issue it would be if there were bodies -- it looks like that helped everyone to accept Jennings, despite his drama and the confusing aspects of his claims.

But regardless, after he does something like this, no one should promote any of his claims.

Q&A: The collapse of Tower 7

"The writer and director of Loose Change, Dylan Avery, told The Conspiracy Files: "The amount of detail that Barry gave us in this interview was unreal. He says he was stepping over dead bodies in the lobby."

Barry Jennings himself disagrees with their interpretation of his words. Barry Jennings told the BBC: "I didn't like the way you know I was portrayed. They portrayed me as seeing dead bodies. I never saw dead bodies"

UPN News Footage Puts Michael Hess out of WTC 7 by approximately 11:30

I have obtained a copy of the live footage broadcast by UPN 9 News, WWOR-TV, on 9/11, and it reveals that Michael Hess, along with Barry Jennings, seem to have been out of the building much earlier than NIST stated in their June 2004 Progress Report. In NIST's report, it places the two individuals' rescue between 12:10 and 12:15, but as can be seen in the video, which I have not the means to upload right now, places he and Mr. Jennings out by around 11:30, because he is speaking live on the news (via telephone with a reporter), at 11:34. The video starts at 10:37, and Michael Hess appears 57 minutes into it. The interviewing reporter, Frank Ucciardo, appears several seconds before. We can further estimate how long Michael Hess had been out of the building by reasoning that he was interviewed "on Broadway about a block from city hall", which puts him near the intersection of Broadway and Chambers Street. On Yahoo maps, the shortest route from what used to be the north face of WTC 7 on Barclay to that intersection is four-tenths of a mile. It seems reasonable to assume that it took no less than five minutes (and probably significantly longer) for Mr.

Michael Hess interviewed by In Memoriam?

I am sure there are people out there who have seen this film. I have just been doing research, actually not about Barry Jennings or Michael Hess, and came across this interview with Michael Hess done by HBO's documentary In Memoriam. The thing is, while it is listed on the site, both links to watch it (as well as all the links for all the videos) failed for me. Can anyone else see it?

Go to the interactive site.
Click on 911 and go to staff interviews. Michael Hess is pictured fourth from the left on the top row of pictures. I can't watch the interview. Can anyone? If not, we should write to HBO and try to obtain that interview. It COULD be telling.
