Would you be surprised to learn that the exact same investigators who headed up the government’s investigation into the World Trade Center collapses and the Pentagon attack on 9/11 also headed up the government’s investigation into the Oklahoma City bombing?
The WTC collapses, Pentagon attack and OKC bombing involved assessments of entirely different kinds of structures inflicted with different kinds of damage. And there are 1.5 million engineers in the U.S., many of them highly-qualified to investigate attacks and their damage.
And yet the authors of the official report on the Murrah Federal Building — Gene Corley, Charles Thornton, Paul Mlaker, and Mete Sozen — were all among the initial team of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ 9/11 investigation.
Several of these individuals have strong connections to industries that benefited from the attack, and that would suffer if it were known that 9/11 was an inside job, such as armaments makers and oil and gas producers.
As if that is not bad enough, the same handful of people who came up with the unscientific “pancake collapse” theory for the Twin Towers while working for FEMA then moved over to spread unscientific theories for NIST:
- FEMA Chapter 1 authors:
- Therese McAllister: co-write NIST report 1-6 and 1-7
- John Gross: co-wrote NIST report 1-6 and 1-7
- Ronald Hamburger: NIST contributor
- FEMA Chapter 2 authors:
- Ronald Hamburger: see above
- William Baker: NIST contributor, Freedom Tower
- Harold Nelson: co-wrote NIST report 1-5 and 1-7
- FEMA Chapter 5 authors (WTC7):
- Ramon Gilsanz: co-wrote NIST report 1-6F
- Harold Nelson: see above
