Experts Urging Broader Inquiry In Towers' Fall
Saying that the current investigation into how and why the twin towers fell on Sept. 11 is inadequate, some of the nation's leading structural engineers and fire-safety experts are calling for a new, independent and better-financed inquiry that could produce the kinds of conclusions vital for skyscrapers and future buildings nationwide. Experts critical of the current effort...point out that the current team of 20 or so investigators has no subpoena power and little staff support and has even been unable to obtain basic information like detailed blueprints of the buildings that collapsed.
Some structural engineers have said that one serious mistake has already been made...the decision to rapidly recycle the steel columns, beams and trusses that held up the buildings. Interviews with a handful of members of the team, which includes some of the nation's most respected engineers, also uncovered complaints that they had at various times been shackled with bureaucratic restrictions that prevented them from interviewing witnesses, examining the disaster site and requesting crucial information like recorded distress calls to the police and fire departments. Members have been threatened with dismissal for speaking to the press.
Special Note: This article was published by the New York Times on December 25, 2001. Isn't it interesting that this vitally important information should be presented on Christmas day, when the public is least likely to read the newspaper? We originally had the full article posted here for three years, but a lawyer from the Times contacted us in late March of 2006 insisting that we remove the article or face a lawsuit. Note that this request came just days after the 9/11 cover-up and World Trade Center collapse became a very hot topic on CNN and in other major media. Though we have over 30 full New York Times articles posted, this is the only one they asked to be removed.
Even more serious allegations on the World Trade Center collapse are made in one of the nation's top magazines for firefighters. To read this highly revealing article titled "Selling Out the Investigation ," click here.
