In an act of obvious dismissal, Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman claimed that WTC Building 7's omission from the 9/11 Commission Report is "black helicopter stuff," and repeated his characterization to follow-ups questioning whether or not "the building fell on 9/11."
The Senator concluded, "I'm telling you, I think I'm being honest with you ...I think it's black helicopter stuff."
However, WTC7's collapse is clearly recorded by dozens of TV cameras-- and all angles clearly suggest controlled demolition. Furthermore, the statements of many news anchors, eyewitness rescue workers, WTC complex leaseholder Larry Silverstein and early reporters from the BBC and CNN all clearly indicate that the building was brought down in a controlled fashion.
Even the official story of 9/11 either ignores WTC7 completely-- as in the case of the Commission Report and the NIST report-- or comes to no definite conclusion-- as in the case of FEMA. FEMA originally reported that its best hypothesis for the collapse of Building 7 had "only a low probability of occurrence."
Yet, despite the fact that Building 7 is clearly an elephant in the room and not a "black helicopter" conspiracy theory, Senator Coleman had no hesitation whatsoever in disregarding the legitimate and puzzling questions and even evaded discussing how to help the estimated 30,000 sick and dying rescue workers after praising rescue workers in his speech.
