Update: Silverstein Family Were All "Running
Late" On 9/11
Amazing coincidences spared all
three Silversteins from harm
Tuesday, May 15, 2007
Following our article
yesterday in which we revealed New York 9/11 truth
activist Luke Rudkowski's claims that Silverstein's security
had personally told him that Silverstein and his daughter
got a warning on the morning of 9/11 not to come to work
that day, we have been inundated with emails asking us
to highlight the fact that there were in fact three Silversteins
working in the towers who were all "running late"
on that day.
"We talked to their private security
staff, we talked to people who were there with Larry on
9/11 - they said he got a phone call telling him not to
show up to work and he called his daughter up and his
daughter also never showed up to work," Rudkowski
told a radio show this past weekend.
More information comes in the shape of a March
13, 2003 New York Observer piece on Silverstein and
his attempts to secure insurance money which he claims
is the only source of revenue for rebuilding at the ground
The Observer piece, recounting the day, stated:
After a last-minute breakdown in the front-running
bid, Mr. Silverstein’s team won by a hair. His
son, Roger, and his daughter, Lisa, were working for
him in temporary offices on the 88th floor of the W.T.C.
north tower. Regular meetings with tenants in the weeks
immediately following their July 26, 2001, takeover
of the building were held each morning at Windows on
But on Sept. 11, Roger and Lisa Silverstein were
running late. Meanwhile, Mr. Silverstein’s wife
of 46 years had laid down the law: The developer could
not cancel an appointment with his dermatologist, even
to meet with tenants at his most important property.
If the attack had happened just a little later, Mr.
Silverstein’s children would likely have been
trapped at Windows. As it was, Silverstein Properties
lost four employees in the attack, two of whom had just
recently been hired.
