Why are the ASCE Journals being dishonest and misleading concerning how the WTC Towers collapsed?

 Tony Szamboti

As shown in an earlier post by Richard Johns, there is a new letter on the Journal of 911 Studies which describes dishonest and unethical behavior by the Journal of Engineering Mechanics and its parent organization, the ASCE Journals and their Board of Governors, regarding their refusal to correct a clearly dishonest and fraudulent paper they published concerning the collapse of the WTC Towers in January 2011.

This stonewalling behavior is similar to that observed of the NIST Director when confronted earlier this year with evidence that the NIST WTC 7 report omitted pertinent structural features from its analysis which would have made impossible the collapse initiation hypothesis presented in the report. See the December 2013 letter by attorney William Pepper to the Dept. of Commerce Inspector General on this issue here


Unfortunately, it seems clear that the previously respected institutions of NIST and the ASCE Journals are involved in a cover-up to prevent the truth of what actually occurred in NYC on Sept. 11, 2001 from being revealed. This cover-up is obviously intended to prevent a real investigation, which would take seriously the statements made by firefighters and others about seeing, hearing, and feeling explosions in the buildings before and during the collapses, and would investigate those who had access to the interiors of those buildings, such as contractors, maintenance workers, etc. to determine how charges could have been planted and to test the steel for evidence of explosive residue. Neither of these things were ever done by any official investigation to date.

Whatever one thinks of the current situation in Iraq, with ISIS, one should remember that had Iraq not been invaded, and its government replaced and army disbanded by the Bush administration, there would be no ISIS. It is known that the Bush administration used fraudulent means to justify its invasion of Iraq and this was only possible with the fear generated by the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and most prominently what happened in NYC on that day. It is thus imperative to find out just who was involved in those events, since science has shown that the aircraft impacts and fires were not responsible for the complete failures and collapses of the three high rise buildings in NYC on that day.
