- The former top economist in Bush's Department
of Labor, Morgan Reynolds, will speak out on the 9/11 inside job at the
State Historical Society, University of Wisconsin-Madison on Saturday,
May 6th. The film Loose Change will be shown, and refreshments served,
starting at 1 p.m, and Reynolds will speak at 3:00 p.m.
- Dr. Reynolds, who holds three U.W.-Madison
degrees, and who is currently Professor of Economics at Texas A&M University,
will present evidence that top Bush Administration officials orchestrated
the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center, and the murder of
almost 2,500 Americans, as a pretext for initiating their pre-planned "long
war" in the Middle East.
- "While more Americans doubt the
9/11 story every week, evidence abounds that many have a mental block against
rational examination of the evidence about 9/11" writes Dr. Reynolds
in a recent article. This mental block, he thinks, amounts to willful ignorance-not
just about 9/11, but about history.
- "Governments throughout history
have provoked or staged attacks on their own people to serve the powers
behind the throne ('the money power'), glorify themselves, engage in vast
government spending, reward friends, exert domestic control, stimulate
the juices of war, annex neighbors and pursue vast geostrategic rearrangements
(the 'global domination project)" Reynolds asserts. He notes that
every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on the "Operation
Northwoods" plan to murder Americans in fake "Cuban terrorist"
attacks in 1962. The planned Operation Northwoods murders of ordinary Americans
in fake terrorist bombings and a fake "airliner shoot-down" would
have involved hundreds of military and intelligence personnel. Yet the
existence of Operation Northwoods was successfully kept secret from the
American people for forty years until James Bamford revealed it in his
book Body of Secrets, published in January 2002.
- Though government officials have historically
been able to successfully conceal their fake or arranged war-trigger attacks
long enough to avoid being hanged for treason, Reynolds thinks the 9/11
cover-up has already unraveled. "Skepticism about conspiracy, small
or large, is somewhat beside the point in the case of 9/11 because the
official Osama-and-Nineteen-Young-Arabs (ONYA) conspiracy tale is so farcical
and impossible. Nearly everyone in America has easy access to the internet
and hundreds of websites expose the 9/11 fraud." (Morgan Reynolds,
"Conspiracy and Closed Minds on 9/11": http://nomoregames.net/index.php?page=911
- Reynolds argues that the Twin Towers
and World Trade Center Building 7 were destroyed in a manner that
can only be explained by controlled demolition with pre-planted explosives-which
should not be surprising, since no steel framed high-rises have ever collapsed
in the way the three World Trade Center buildings did for any other reason.
In his article "Why Did the World Trade Center Skyscrapers Collapse?"
Reynolds writes that among the many features of the WTC demolitions that
suggest explosives, rather than jet-fuel fires, are:
- 1. Fire had never before caused steel-frame
buildings to collapse except for the three buildings on 9/11, nor has fire
collapsed any steel high rise since 9/11.
- 2. The fires, especially in the South
Tower and WTC-7, were small.
- 3. WTC-7 was unharmed by an airplane
and had only minor fires on the seventh and twelfth floors of this 47-story
steel building yet it collapsed in less than 10 seconds.
- 4. WTC-5 and WTC-6 had raging fires but
did not collapse despite much thinner steel beams (pp. 68-9).
- 5. In a PBS documentary, Larry Silverstein,
the WTC lease-holder, recalled talking to the fire department commander
on 9/11 about WTC-7 and said, ".maybe the smartest thing to do is
pull it," slang for demolish it.
- 6. FEMA, given the uninviting task of
explaining the collapse of Building 7 with mention of demolition verboten
admitted that the best it could come up with had "only a low probability
- 7. It's difficult if not impossible for
hydrocarbon fires like those fed by jet fuel (kerosene) to raise the temperature
of steel close to melting.
- Professional demolition, by contrast,
can explain all of these facts and more. Demolition means placing explosives
throughout a building, and detonating them in sequence to weaken "the
structure so it collapses or folds in upon itself". In conventional
demolitions gravity does most of the work, although it probably did a minority
- 9/11, so heavily were the towers honeycombed
- 1. Each WTC building collapse occurred
at virtually free-fall speed (approximately 10 seconds or less).
- 2. Each building collapsed, for the most
part, into its own footprint.
- 3. Virtually all the concrete (an estimated
100,000 tons in each tower) on every floor was pulverized into a very fine
dust, a phenomenon that requires enormous energy and could not be caused
by gravity alone (".workers can't even find concrete. 'It's all dust,'
[the official] said").
- 4. Dust exploded horizontally for a couple
hundred feet, as did debris, at the beginning of each tower's collapse.
- 5. Collapses were total, leaving none
of the massive core columns sticking up hundreds of feet into the air.
- 6. Salvage experts were amazed at how
small the debris stacks were.
- 7. The steel beams and columns came down
in sections under 30 feet long and had no signs of "softening";
there was little left but shorn sections of steel and a few bits of concrete.
- 8. Photos and videos of the collapses
all show "demolition waves," meaning "confluent rows of
small explosions" along floors (blast sequences).
- 9. According to many witnesses, explosions
occurred within the buildings.
- 10. Each collapse had detectable seismic
vibrations suggestive of underground explosions, similar to the 2.3 earthquake
magnitude from a demolition like the Seattle Kingdome (p. 108).
- 11. Each collapse produced molten steel
identical to that generated by explosives, resulting in "hot spots"
that persisted for months (the two hottest spots at WTC-2 and WTC-7
were approximately 1,350o F five days after being continuously flooded
with water, a temperature high enough to melt aluminum (p. 70). ("Why

- The apparent demolition of the three
skyscrapers, and a perhaps inadvertent statement by heavily-insured WTC
landlord Larry Silverstein that WTC-7 was "pulled" (slang for
"demolished") can be viewed on many 9/11 truth DVDs and web-videos,
including Loose Change, 9/11 Eyewitness, 9/11 and the American Empire,
(Dr. David Griffin), and 9/11 Revisited (Dr. Steven Jones). Dr. Reynolds'
