Former Assistant Secretary Of Treasury Under Reagan Doubts Official 9/11 Story
Yet another former high-ranking U.S. official doubts the official story of 9/11. Last week it was Morgan Reynolds, this week it is former assistant secretary of the treasury under president Reagan, Paul Craig Roberts.
A former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under President Reagan stepped back into the political spotlight this week, expressing doubt about the official 9/11 story and claiming "if they lied to us about Ruby Ridge, Waco and weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, why should we believe them now."
Paul Craig Roberts, listed by Who's Who in America as one of the 1,000 most influential political thinkers in the world, has evolved over the years into a major Bush basher as well as neo con critic. Roberts said he hasn't changed his political ideology or jumped from the Republican-conservative ship but "just can't respect a party leadership who doesn't respect the truth."
Saying 9/11 is only a part of a mysterious but deadly neo-con puzzle, Roberts looked back at history for some answers
Although professing to know "a little about engineering" from his undergraduate days at Georgia Tech, Roberts deferred formulating any serious conclusions about the fall of the WTC, but expressed doubt as to the credibility of the entire official version based on past government lies uncovered at Waco, Ruby Ridge and the threat of WMD in Iraq.
"I guess the real story about 9/11 is about what the people are actually saying. I've gotten hundreds of emails in response to my columns and many of them talk about not getting the truth from the government or the media about what really happened at the World Trade Center. I know many qualified engineers and scientists have said the WTC collapsed from explosives. In fact, if you look at the manner in which it fell, you have to give their conclusions credibility."
