One Last Shot of 9-11 Denial on the View

Ro leads with Willie Rodriguez and the poor man with his skin falling off, as usual assuming this means explosives. But of course the man was burned by the fireball that traveled down the elevator shaft--even Willie used to admit that. She goes on to raving about WTC 7 being omitted from the 9-11 Commission Report, like the 9-11 Commission was concerned about a building in which nobody died, which was not a direct target of the attacks. The 9-11 Commission report also did not mention St. Nick's Cathedral, which was also destroyed. Oooooh, mysterious.

And anyway, the notion that the 9-11 Commission Report (PDF file) does not mention WTC 7 is wrong.

The OEM's headquarters was located at 7 WTC. Some questioned locating it both so close to a previous terrorist target and on the 23rd floor of a building (difficult to access should elevators become inoperable).

By 8:48, officials in OEM headquarters on the 23rd floor of 7 WTC....

Page 319:

"At about 9:57 an EMS paramedic approached the FDNY Chief of Department and advised that an engineer in front of 7 WTC had just remarked that the Twin Towers in fact were in imminent danger of total collapse."

Page 322:

"After the South Tower was hit, OEM senior leadership decided to remain in its "bunker" and continue conducting operations even though all civilians had been evacuated from 7 WTC. At approximately 9:30 a senior OEM official ordered the evacuation of the facility after a Secret Service agent in 7 WTC advised him that additional commercial planes were not accounted for."

Update: Yet moron Ro! Ro and her makeup gal exchange video blog thoughts about the nuclear exchange between Ro and Lis last night; the makeup gal (Helene) seems to be half in the bag. Janet is banished from the v-blog for her mustache-drawing escapade. Apparently Ro will appear on Monday for one more episode of the View, a pretaped one for Elisabeth's birthday. If you can't see the vblog over at News Buckit (I couldn't) you can also check it at Ro's blog.
