Nuts on parade: A former Bush administration insider has concluded that the wacko conspiracy theory that the Twin Towers were destroyed not by terrorist flying airliners into the buildings, but by pre-planted demolitions at strategic points is the real truth.
So, we should believe this former Bush administration employee because he's a structural engineer, right? Oh, he's not a structural engineer? Maybe a materials engineer -- he knows all about what steel should and shouldn't do? No? What's this guy's area of expertise?
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. [emphasis added]
Who knew that the field of economics was so broad as to include structural engineering too? Maybe some of those conspiracy nuts should let Morgan Reynolds build their next house -- preferably a three-plus story one.
