Ex Bush official casts doubt on cause of Sep 11 attacks
http://feeds.bignewsnetwork.com/?sid=a3b42464f0f8c642

A former chief economist in the Labor Department during President Bush's first term now believes the official story about the collapse of the WTC is 'bogus,' saying it is more likely that a controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7.

'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,' said Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D, a former member of the Bush team who also served as director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis headquartered in Dallas, TX.

Reynolds, now a professor emeritus at Texas A&M University, also believes it's 'next to impossible' that 19 Arab terrorists alone outfoxed the mighty U.S. military, adding that scientific conclusions about the WTC collapse may hold the key to the entire mysterious plot behind 9/11.

'It is hard to exaggerate the importance of a scientific debate over the cause(s) of the collapse of the twin towers and building 7,' said Reynolds this week from his offices at Texas A&M. '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.

1. Even though this is breaking news, imo, this will get moved to 9/11 forum.
:(

No building hit Building No. 7
I always thought that was odd. The two towers fell straight down. I don't remember what the explanation was for Building No. 7; probably something like vibrations from the other towers falling.

9. The Admission
Edited on Tue Jun-14-05 02:22 PM by Beaver Tail
Building #7 was admitted as controlled demolition one year after it fell in a PBS show.

3. Where did this story originate?
I find it interesting that there is no source listed beyond Greg Szymanski

5. Breaking News?
Only thing about this news that makes it Breaking News is someone actually is admitting it.

10. That's what bothers me.
They never report anything damaging to the administration.

What's going on.

7. Another reason to get rid of science in our classrooms.
How many people know that WTC #7 collapsed on 9/11? My guess is it's very few people.

And what have been the reasons for its collapse? Was it struck by #1 or #2 on their way down?

Simple minds want to know.
