You'd think people would know that skyscrapers don't suddenly shrink like that.

Oh god not this shit again. This makes absolutely no difference, just like the mosque. People will again make a mountain out of a mole hill.

Both the Shard and the Pinnacle, two supertalls currently under construction in London are financed by rich arabs. If it wasn't for their money they probably would not be getting built right now. However, I can understand why arab investment wouldn't go down too well for WTC1

I'm sure Fox News would love to rename the site, "The World, excluding the Middle-East, Trade Center".

Wait a minute, it's not even a Middle-Eastern company that wants to partner with the Port Authority, it's an American company which has some investors who are from the Middle-East. And these investors aren't even from any Middle-Eastern country involved in any way with 9/11 (like Afghanistan). They're from the freaking United Arab Emirates! The most Westernized and America-friendly country in the Middle-East.

Of course Faux News ignores facts like the countries the investors are from are US allies that have bought hundreds of millions of dollars worth of weapons systems from the USA. Such facts just get in the way.

Exactly, but one mistake there, they are not financed by "rich arabs" but by investment authorities....
