Larry Silverstein's coveted deal went down in dust.
Vows to rebuild twin towers
by Ernesto Cienfuegos
La Voz de Aztlan

Los Angeles, Alta California - September 16, 2001 (ACN) A Jewish Real Estate Magnate won a coveted 99 year lease on the World Trade Center from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey less than two months before they were leveled to the ground by terrorists. Silverstein is a wheeler and dealer of downtown New York skyscrapers and owns a large real estate portfolio including 1 World Trade Center and allegedly the infamous "Runway 69" Queens dance club that has been tied to the heroin trade, money laundering and New York Police corruption.

Silverstein, past president of the United Jewish Appeal in New York, received a very sweet deal for the World Trade Center from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. He received the 99 year lease worth $8 billion for a mere $3.2 billion. Silvestein has immense influence over politicians and government bureaucrats and this has helped him and his friends take control of coveted real estate in Manhattan.

It is estimated that about 5,000 workers died when the city's tallest structures collapsed after being hit by two passenger jet airlines commandeered by terrorists. Silverstein wants to start rebuilding the structures according to Steve Solomon, his spokesman, however four employees of Silverstein's company who worked in the firm's management office on the 88th floor of the tower known as 1 World Trade Center have not been accounted for.

In July 1993, Harry P.Miller, a Vietnam veteran, filed a complaint in a federal district court of New York against Larry Silverstein, the alleged owner of "Runway 69," a Queens dance club, that included as defendants President Clinton and Colin Powell. The allegations of Miller's complaint were that the named defendants committed or aided others in committing illegal acts, including assassinations, over a twenty-five year period, beginning amidst the Vietnam War, in furtherance of a conspiracy to distribute Laotian heroin. He asserted that the defendants were engaged in heroin trafficking and that "Goldfingers International," a business that supplies nude dancers to nude dance clubs, was laundering the proceeds of the conspiracy through "Runway 69." Miller alleged that the proceeds were used for such purposes as covering up the "political scandals" and buying the "cooperation" of the NYC Police Department.

In April 1993, Miller commenced his action in state court. The action was subsequently removed to the district court and in July 1993, Miller filed an amended complaint, which incorporates his first complaint.

Based on his allegations, Miller asked for $49 million in damages as well as a myriad of court orders, such as one providing that "no President or officer of the United States of America has ever been authorized to order the death of any person without due process of war or law" and that "no executive order of the President can provide due process for assassinations."

In January 1994, all of the defendants moved to dismiss Miller's complaint. In a 28-page order, the court granted each of the defendants' motions and dismissed all of Miller's claims pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b) however Miller appealed to the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit. On September 9, 1997 in case No. 96-6303 Judge Edward R. Korman, United States District Judge for the Eastern District of New York affirmed the lower court's decision and the entire case was buried. The case was never reported in the mainstream media and a host of questions still remain unanswered.
