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

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."
