9/11 Theory a House of Cards By William John Hagan
Houston Home Journal 06/22/2004
I took the attacks of September 11th on the World Trade Center personally. Thousands of our fellow citizens were murdered that day by Islamic Terrorists and, these cowards endangered some of my dearest friends when my beloved Manhattan was attacked. I was also commended by the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation for my proposed memorial design during the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition. So when someone denies the facts about that horrible day I don’t get mad, I get furious.
Within days of Usama Bin Laden launching his Islamic Holy War against the United States many brain-dead conspiracy theorists throughout the world started to blame everyone else for the attacks but the Al-Qaeda madmen who flew two, fuel laden passenger jets into the Towers. Some self-loathing Americans and anti-Semitic Europeans and Arabs actually had the audacity to blame everyone from the United States Government and Israel, to the Trilateral Commission and even the Freemasons. Until now, most major media outlets have ignored these flights of fantasy. That changed, however, when United Press International (UPI) inexplicably reported the insane blathering of one Morgan Reynolds.
Morgan Reynolds claims that he was a former chief economist for the Department of Labor during President George W. Bush's first term. Reynolds declared that the Al-Qaeda piloted planes alone could not have brought down the towers and “only professional demolition appears to account for the full range of facts associated with the collapses of WTC 1 (North Tower), WTC 2 (South Tower)”. Reynolds went on to accuse the US Government of destroying the WTC by stating, “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.” Morgan Reynolds failed to explain why the government would want to destroy its own financial center but the message was clear: the bombing of the World Trade Center was a government set-up, designed to justify a full scale assault on the Arab world. Just the sort of headline Al Jazeera and the rest of the American hating world would run with to fuel and justify anti-American violence.
After the UPI story was published I set out to interview Reynolds myself and, as expected, his story fell apart like a house of cards. First, I asked if he had any background in architecture or construction. His answer was “no”, he was simply a former Professor of Economics. I explained to him that I’ve watched workmen prepare to bring down a building for demolition. It takes a lot explosives and noisy work. When I asked, “How could government agents have done this without being noticed by people working in the buildings?” His educated response was, “I don't know exactly how it was done. But it was done, just look at the disintegration and free-fall collapse.” Well, I have and that’s what happens when two passenger jets hit a skyscraper. I then addressed his former relationship with the government. His answer: “I never worked directly for the White House but did indirectly via USDOL.” At that point I had to wonder if this guy had ever even worked for the government which was the only detail that gave his original story any credibility. I, therefore, asked him if he could prove his employment. He abruptly ended our interview by refusing to offer his proof.
Clearly Morgan Reynolds is a duplicitous con, but the real fools were UPI and other major media outlets for printing his claims in the first place.
