79. Why does that boggle the mind?
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 09:03 PM by petgoat
It's only rational to separate the components. It's called
analysis.

Dr. Romero said a) it looked just like controlled demolition,
b) he didn't think fire could have brought the towers down,
c) relatively small amounts of explosives could do the job,
and d) that a two stage terrorist attack is a common tactic to
target the rescue workers who have been attracted to the site.

Later he said he'd changed his mind and he thought fire did
bring the buldings down.

So he said A, B, C, and D, and because he retracted
B there's something dishonest in citing A, C, and D?
