Now that many highly-credible scientists, engineers and architects have publicly questioned the official explanation for the destruction of the World Trade Center (see this, this, this, this), government apologists are making the following argument:

"Yes, but there are many more scientists, engineers and architects who support the official theory".
Are they right?

Well, initially, there aren't that many people who have come out and publicly supported the official story. In fact, most scientists, engineers and architects have not made any public statement about 9/11 one way or the other.

Moreover, virtually all of those who have supported the official explanation are - directly or indirectly - receiving funding from the government. See this and this. They get grants, accolades and appointments for parroting the official story.

Additionally, there are many scientisits, engineers and architects who are convinced that the towers were brought down by controlled demolition, but are afraid of publicly speaking out for fear of losing their jobs, or being labelled unpatriotic or even a terrorist (and see this).

Former Wall Street Journal editor and prominent conservative Paul Craig Roberts addresses this issue and writes about one such person:
"Try to find an academic physicist who will express in public his doubts about the official explanation for the collapse of the three World Trade buildings. An academic career in physics is almost totally dependent on government research grants. By bringing federal funding to education, liberals handed government the power to control. One physicist who expressed his doubts about the collapse of the twin towers, Steven Jones, was terminated by BYU at the insistence of the federal government, which held the power of the purse over the university's head.

The same constraint on truth exists everywhere. I once asked the proprietor of a distinguished engineering firm why he didn't publicly express his doubts about the World Trade Center buildings. He said it would be the end of his business, that he would be denounced as an anti-American and demonized as a terrorist sympathizer. The fact that he would be an expert giving an expert opinion would carry no weight.
In fact, there are many thousands of highly-qualified scientists, engineers and architects who know that the world trade centers were intentionally demolished. One day - hopefully soon - they will find the courage to speak out.

As a political activist for decades, I have rejoiced in victories for the people and mourned in defeats. I chose the pen name "George Washington" because - as Washington's biographies show - he wasn't a (more...)
