Larry Silverstein, famous for being the owner of WTC 7 and the phrase “pull it” has put the Willis Tower up for sale. His name is not mentioned as part of the group selling the building but this piece by Dean Starkman from the Wall Street Journal dated March 4, 2004 documents the transaction:
Two investors who are part of Larry Silverstein’s group that owns the World Trade Center lease are among the buyers of the Sears Tower, which MetLife Inc. agreed to sell Thursday for more than $800 million, according to people familiar with the situation.
Lloyd Goldman and Joseph Cayre, New York investors who are among Mr. Silverstein’s backers in the Trade Center, are part of a group that agreed to buy the Chicago landmark, these people said. Another New York investor, Jeffrey Feil, was also a participant in the Sears Tower deal, the people said. Names of the other investors couldn’t be learned.
Mr. Goldman led a group including Mr. Cayre that put up most of the $125 million of the equity that Mr. Silverstein, a New York developer, used to buy the 99-year office lease on the Trade Center office portion from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The deal, valued at $3.2 billion, including the Trade Center’s retail mall, closed in July 2001, weeks before the September terror attacks that destroyed the complex.
Last month, The Wall Street Journal reported that the Port Authority in December had quietly agreed to return all of the $125 million in equity that Mr. Silverstein and his low-profile group originally invested to buy the leases. The full details of that transaction haven’t been released to the public. But the deal effectively eliminated the Silverstein group’s capital risk in the project, while allowing the group to retain control of 10 million square feet of office space. The Port Authority has rejected a Wall Street Journal request to review the transaction, citing Mr. Silverstein’s ongoing lawsuit against his insurers, led by Swiss Reinsurance Co., over how many claims may be collected as a result of the attacks.
Does this mean another 9/11 style false flag is in the works? Let’s look at some interesting facts:
Security at Willis is provided by Kroll’s. The same company that provided “security” to the WTC.
Private equity firms have been moving out including Ernst & Young and Thoma Bravo citing the poor quality of the building.
Last June, a 5 day drill was conducted which simulated a jet crashing in Oak Lawn on it’s way to the airport, a train evacuation due to an explosion and an explosion at a chemical plant.
Exactly a year later June 10, 2011, another drill is planned by the name of Red Dragon. The exercise will be conducted by Northwest Community Hospital and the Army Reserve. It’s reported that it is the “largest scale drill ever hosted by NCH”.
“The purpose of the two-hour drill is to better prepare the hospital for a catastrophic event – such as the deadly tornado earlier this week in Joplin, Missouri – while practicing crisis interactions between medical staff and military personnel. The scenario created for the exercise is day three of tornadoes striking a nearby community, with dozens of injured and deceased workers from an Elk Grove Village industrial park being transported to NCH. The military is now involved, with medics on site.”
“During the two days prior to the drill – on June 8 and 9 – the U.S. Army Reserve Mortuary Affairs Unit will be staged in NCH’s west parking lot to practice handling mass casualties. Mannequins will be used as the bodies are decontaminated in tents and prepared for either burial or the medical examiner’s office.”
Last but not least, Rahm Emanuel, dual citizen of Israel & the U.S. with his first allegiance being to the former is now mayor of Chicago. Rahm Emanuel- “Mr Mandatory Civilian Service, Larry Silverstein- Mr “Pull It”, armageddon drills, security firms fleeing an asbestos filled declining building (any of this sounding familiar?) and the table seems to be set up very nicely for a large scale false flag. Or is it?
Let’s hope not otherwise this little tribute to the name change of the Tower from Sears to Willis will be it’s prophetic death knell instead. ~jg
