Whack-job Texas A&M prof (& former Bush Admin official) claims WTC was blown up by Feds

I've heard some wild conspiracy theories regarding the 9/11 disaster, and most of those spewing them have been ignored like the whack-jobs they are.

But now comes Morgan Reynolds, professor emeritus at Texas A&M University, and former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President Bush's first term. Reynolds claims that the Twin Towers, along with 7WTC, which fell late in the afternoon of 9/11, were demolished deliberately by the US government.

"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."
I didn't know that a job as an economist qualifies someone as a structural engineer.

But what gets me more is that there are people who are actually paying attention to this conspiracy nut.

Brought to you by your friendly neighborhood fringe. Same people that brought you the story about Bush 41 flying the SR71 to Iran just before the 1980 Elections. Its funny how these people will so readily believe these wild conspiracy theories while at the same time calling the Vince Foster murder theory crowd lunatics.
