Ivory Tower Idiots, part III

I'm sure many of you heard about the comments from the former chief economist from the Dept of Labor, Morgan Reynolds. If you haven't, here's an excerpt:

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.

Now I've heard about conspiracy theories, but this one tops it all. For this to work, not only would the administration have to cordinate plane hijackings to slam into the towers, but they would have to plant massive explosives on the towers themselves. Then, after the planes hit, they would then detonate the explosives to make it look like the planes' impact caused the
damage. All this, of course, to begin some orwellian, perpetual war against a fabricated enemy to ensure the collection of as much power as possible in the executive.

Reynolds it an emiritus professor at Texas A&M University, and the school, like an rational person, is trying to distance themselves entireley from him. The University President even said:

"The American people know what they saw with their own eyes on September 11, 2001. To suggest any kind of government conspiracy in the events of that day goes beyond the pale.”
