"Lucky" Larry Silverstein's Magic Lever - 9/11 WTC7


"Lucky" Larry Silverstein: Wiseguy, Demolitions Expert, Architect

On 9/11/2001, "Lucky" Larry Silverstein just so happened to notice that a third building, WTC7, had a small fire.  Luckily, it was already rigged for demolition, so Larry "Double Down" Silverstein told his associates to, "Pull it" -- a demolitions term for destruction.

Silverstein had taken out the first insurance policy in history against Terrorist attacks shortly before 9/11.  He then successfully argued in court that he should receive twice the payout -- since not one, but two, towers had collapsed.

Apparently, "Lucky" Larry Silverstein's third tower, WTC7, was not covered by this policy.
