I am mystified by the publication of the guest column “Evidence contradicts 9/11 crimes” on Sept. 11. The author cites nothing more than his suspicions against the established evidence.
It also surprises me that Gazette editors allowed such a prominent publishing to take place with respect to the poorly constructed nature of the piece. I recognize the author’s right to opinion. I just wish the principles of journalism were more rigorously applied in this case.
Is the author a structural engineer? How many aircraft disasters has he reconstructed? Perhaps he has extensive experience in audio analysis or Magnetometer interpretation? I suspect not. This author’s area of expertise is as a financial analyst and, now, a 9/11 conspiracy theory hobbyist. He should be writing columns on the double-dip recession.
Thousands of mourning family members (of the victims of 9/11) are not comforted by unsupported allegations of government involvement in the disaster of nine years ago. These continuing allegations by fringe elements of our society only prolong their pain, deny them closure, and solve nothing. Studies are well documented. The vast majority of Americans knows the truth about 9/11 and have accepted it. I wish the conspiracy theorists would leave well enough alone. Let our nation heal.
