Texas A&M Seeks to Separate Itself from Recent Reynolds Comments

Texas A&M Statement
This is in response to the recent comments by former Bush Aide Morgan Reynolds, Texas A&M Professor Emeritus, on the possible demolition of the WTC on 9/11.

Dr. Morgan Reynolds is retired from Texas A&M University, but holds the title of Professor Emeritus-an honorary title bestowed upon select tenured faculty, who have retired with ten or more years of service. Additionally, contrary to some written reports, while some faculty emeriti are allocated office space at Texas A&M, Dr. Reynolds does not have an office on the Texas A&M campus. Any statements made by Dr. Reynolds are in his capacity as a private citizen and do not represent the views of Texas A&M University. Below is a statement released yesterday by Dr. Robert M. Gates, President of Texas A&M University:

New Flash Movie on Iraq and the WTC Demolition

This is a pretty snazzy flash movie about where we are today with Iraq and Afghanistan, and how we got here, namely 9/11. The movie argues the point of demolition, and is a nice new contribution to 9/11 related flash animations. Feel free to post any others you would like to mention in the comments.

9/11: Ten Smoking Guns
This article is a great culmination of questions surrounding 9/11 which have not been fully discussed or answered.

Here is a sample:

9) Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options. On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls.

The investigation as to which criminals benefited from advance knowledge of the terrorist attack led straight to Alex Brown/Deutsche Bank - chaired up until 1997 by executive director of the CIA, Buzzy Krongard.

Recent Media Coverage of Pre-9/11 FBI Failures

There are a ton of new news articles out right now in relation to a new report pointing out the FBI's failures leading up to 9/11. I figured they might be worth reviewing to get an idea of what the more mainstream news sources think related to 9/11.

The Villiage Voice Speaks up on the 9/11 Cover Up

Hijacking the Facts - FBI worked hard to cover up a 9-11 cover-up — and then hide it some more

It's no secret the FBI let at least two 9-11 hijackers—Hazmi and Mihdhar—slip through its fingers when they landed in California in 2000 and proceeded to live openly under their own names in San Diego before moving into position for the attack. What makes the situation especially ludicrous is that one of these hijackers rented a room from a San Diego landlord who was an FBI informant on the Muslim community.

Washington Times Covers Bush Aide's WTC Demolition Claims

UPI Hears...
This is just a repeat of the previous story, but it is good to see it spreading!

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.
