Morgan Reynolds, Professor Emiritus at Texas A&M University, and former chief economist under George W. Bush 2001-2002. Three degrees from University of Wisconsin.
“I started to work for Bush on September 4, 2001, and didn’t know about 9/11 until my son emailed me. Saw the television on, black smoke billowing, and said, ‘that building will not fall.’
“When I learned that both towers had turned to dust, I said, ‘I don’t get it. How could I have been wrong?'”
He worked for 16 more months before he resigned.
Reynolds first began to suspect 9/11 was an inside job in March, 2003, when the Bush adminstration invaded Iraq. He knew that was a lie. So what else, he asked himself, could have been based on a lie? He began to research 9/11.
Here’s what he calls his “moderate stance:” “The whole focus was to re-elect G.W. Bush. Every calculus was short-term, political smarts. Never about what’s the best for the country. . . It was craven. . . about GW Bush avoiding the errors of Poppy. . . and the ‘wimp’ charge was going to be avoided at all costs.”
Of 9/11, he says the biggest smoking gun was Building 7. What other explanation can there be, when it collapsed under seven seconds and was not hit by a plane?
