Conspiranoiacs go mainstream

The conspiranoiacs are going to be salivating over this one. For all their relentless insistence that the entire government is controlled by The Conspiracy, nothing makes them giddier than a whiff of vindication from The Establishment. Too bad the poorly-named “9-11 skeptics” will never exhibit any skepticism over these claims…

UPI Hears…

Washington, DC, Jun. 13 (UPI) — Insider notes from United Press International for June 8 A former Bush team member during his first administration is now voicing serious doubts about the collapse of the World Trade Center on 9-11. 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.”

      The guy writes: “In fact, the government has failed to produce significant wreckage from any of the four alleged airliners that fateful day.”

      Hey, maybe this guy has a point. We all imagined the airplanes that day. Makes sense, huh?

  1. John Daly and Morgan Reynolds are not their real names
    I’m obtaining full documentation, but John Daly of UPI did not write the piece quoted in the Washington Times. Neither did he nor anybody else talk to Morgan Daly “in his office” at Texas A&M, since the head of that university issued a press release confirming that Reynolds has no current connection and no office there. Finally, all of this fake Reynolds moonbat articles are only issued via Mises Institute and Lew Rockwell, but totally bogus sources.

    So don’t get mad at Daly and the real Morgan Reynolds. They have nothing to do this this report, which only is making the rounds because of the Moonies rag in Washington. How many unreliable sources does it take to make a story untrue?

    1. The provberbial hall of mirrors…
      Its hard to believe even the Washington Times would just print complete fiction that was that easy to disprove. Can you post a link to the Texas A&M press release?
