A dying CIA agent has made a series of stunning confessions since being released from a New Jersey hospital after being given only weeks left to live by doctors. Malcom Howard, a 79-year-old retired CIA agent, claims he was part of a covert operation to destroy World Trade Center Building Number 7 during the attacks in New York on September 11th, 2001.
Mr. Howard was an operative in the CIA for 36 years and claims he was tasked with bringing the building down in a “controlled demolition” saying he had been chosen for the project by senior CIA agents due to his engineering background and experience in commercial demotion from a previous career.
Having originally trained as a civil engineer, Howard says he became an explosives expert after he was headhunted by the CIA in the early 1980s.He says that throughout his extensive career, he had planted explosives in items as small as cigarette lighters and as large as “80-floor buildings”.
The New Jersey native says he was part of a cell of 4 CIA operatives who worked on a project dubbed “New Century” between May 1997 and September 2001 that was tasked with ensuring the successful demolition of WTC7, at a time, he says, the CIA “was still taking orders from the top”.
Mr. Howard said that operation “New Century” was unique compared to other projects he’d worked on for the CIA saying that the only demolition that “we had to pretend wasn’t a demolition job”.
Speaking to YNW, he said he had no problem going through with the deception at the time, because “when you are a patriot, you don’t question the motivation of the CIA or the White House.”
“You assume the bigger purpose is for a greater good. They pick good, loyal people like me, and it breaks my heart to hear the sh*t talk. “Looking back in retrospect now, he says he admits that “something wasn’t right”. “No good has come from this. This isn’t the America we envisioned.”
YNW reports: Explaining how the building was brought down, Mr. Howard says;
“It was a classic controlled demolition with explosives. We used super-fine military grade nano-thermite composite materials as explosives.”
“The hard part was getting thousands of pounds of explosives, fuses and ignition mechanisms into the building without causing too much concern.”
“But almost every single office in the Building 7 was rented by the CIA, the Secret Service, or the military, which made it easier.”
Mr. Howard explains that WTC 7 was “loaded with explosives in strategic places” in the month leading up to the day that changed the course of American history.
On September 11th, while the North and South towers burned, fuses were ignited in World Trade Center 7, and nano-thermite explosions hollowed out the building, destroying the steel structure, removing the reinforcements, and allowing the office fires to tear through the rest of the building, hollowing it out like a shell.
World Trade Center 7 collapsed into its own footprint at 5:20pm, seven hours after the destruction of WTC 1 and 2.
The building shocked witnesses by coming down at the speed of freefall, indicating that it encountered zero resistance on the way down.
Mr. Howard and his colleagues had done their job. “When the building came down, it was such a rush. Everything went exactly to plan. It was so smooth. Everybody was evacuated.
Nobody was hurt in WTC 7.” “We were celebrating. We kept watching replays of the demolition, we had the whiskey and cigars out, and then all of a sudden the strangest thing happened.
We all started to worry that it looked a bit too smooth. We watched the tape again and again and again and we started to get paranoid. It looked like a controlled demolition.”
“We thought sh*t, people are going to question this.” “And then we heard that people from the street were reporting that they heard the explosions during the afternoon.
