well seeing that world trade center was attacked in the 90's too it would make sense for him to get insurance covering terrorism

Let me put this very simply for you.

there were several terrorist attacks (orchestrated by al-queda i might add) on the WTC in 90s and 80s all of which failed to do any real damage (they were enough to put bin-laden on the map but weren't enough for the government to actually consider him a serious threat)

if you're referring to the content: the OP is very vague with its wording of "just months before" which could mean anything from 2 months to possibly even 2 years. however he did bid on the WTC in january 2001 (emphasise on bid instead of buy; the OP used misleading text as it wasnt directly sold to him but was put up for auction) for $3.2 billion (making it understandable why he'd want the insurance to pay $4..55 billion). incidentally, silverstein would've been in the WTC the morning of 9/11 (it was usual for him to spend his mornings in there) had it not been for his wife convincing him to go to dermatologist appointment.

call me a liar or read thumb me i don't care but this is the truth.

my mom used to work in a building near the world trade center and she used to eat lunch in the world trade center. The day that it was bombed (the failed attempt with a car bomb) she was in the tower that was bombed.

she was fine and luckily by 2001 i was born so she didn't work but it's spooky to think of what could've happened if she kept working where she worked.

The world trade center was the victim of two attacks before hand. Makes perfect sense.
The Chrysler building, Empire State Building, and Seers tower all have so-called "terrorist insurance". ****, the hospital I worked at while working in NYC ALSO had it.

I skipped by this content but I came back just to thumb it down.

I think it did imply that he was involved, actually. The insurance was said to include terrorism as a potential claim, but whoever wrote it put in "fortuitously", including quotes, drawing attention to the word as if it's a lie. As if Silverstein was suspiciously trying to avert attention from that particular item in the claim.

(In case you, like me, didn't know what fortuitous means, spare yourself the google; it means casually, by accident, or of a passing matter.)

I think this is more OP's fault; whoever made this probably saw the word 'fortuitously' in the same context and decided that it looked suspicious just because the guy actually got money out of it. Personally I don't think he was involved or even expected it to happen, if only for the fact that he needed the insurance money to rebuild the WTC and sought to claim the money 'just months' after the disaster, but not immediately.

Its implicit by the "fortuitously", in addition to the whole "awaken the mind" thing in the picture.
