UPI Hears... - (United Press International)

UPI Hears... - (United Press International): "Former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term Morgan Reynolds comments that the official story about the collapse of the WTC is "bogus" and that it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7. Reynolds, who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis in Dallas and is now professor emeritus at Texas A&M University said, 'If demolition destroyed three steel skyscrapers at the World Trade Center on 9/11, then the case for an 'inside job' and a government attack on America would be compelling.' Reynolds commented from his Texas A&M office, 'It is hard to exaggerate the importance of a scientific debate over the cause of the collapse of the twin towers and building 7. If the official wisdom on the collapses is wrong, as I believe it is, then policy based on such erroneous engineering analysis is not likely to be correct either. The government's collapse theory is highly vulnerable on its own terms. Only professional demolition appears to account for the full range of facts associated with the collapse of the three buildings.'" Is the Washington Times better than the Artic Beacon?

I think it's pretty irrelevant what a "chief economist" thinks about an engineering issue such as building collapse.

Is there controversy within the civil engineering community regarding this issue? If so, then that's different.

"If the official wisdom on the collapses is wrong, as I believe it is, then policy based on such erroneous engineering analysis is not likely to be correct either."

No one cares what you believe, Morgan. Stick to economics.

Isnt is interesting that none of the lefty outlets like DailyKos or MoveOn are covering this story? If it had legs I think they would.

My main problem with conspiracy theories is that they assume the government has the intelligence and internal discipline to pull it off. My other problem is that they never make any sense.
