“For the third time today, it’s reminiscent of those pictures we’ve all seen too much on television before when a building was deliberately destroyed by well placed dynamite to knock it down.”

— Dan Rather, September 11th 2001

Dan Rather responded to questions regarding the comments he made on September 11th, 2001 likening the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 to the deliberate destruction of a building by the use of dynamite today after the National Conference for Media Reform being held in Minneapolis this weekend.

When asked to elaborate on his comments considering the NIST Report’s failure to explain the collapse of WTC7, Rather responded, “I respect the question. I respect it enough to say that, to give a short, brief answer would be wrong. Basically that is, is not that good for me, but I was reporting live at 9/11, and I reported what I saw and tried to describe it as accurately as I know how.”

Rather was receptive to questions on the demolition subject today despite having recently responded to Philly 9/11 Truth‘s suggestion that his controlled demolition observation was indeed correct by bluntly countering that his own was, “not a correct observation“—offering no additional comments. Today he was willing to comment on whether he would support a new investigation of 9/11 were we able to get one, but said that he would “follow” any new investigation.

“Well, I’m always interested in turning up new information, but I would be honest with you to say that, uh, I have my doubts of what that investigation would turn up as different. But, if there’s a new investigation I certainly would follow it.”
