A retired Texas A&M professor is weighing in on 9/11 saying the official story about the collapse of the twin towers is "bogus."
Morgan Reynolds was a chief economist in the Labor Department during President Bush's first term.
He's now a professor emeritus at A&M and is quoted in the alternative online news publication, The Arctic Beacon, as saying the collapse of the World Trade Center was more likely a controlled demolition initiated by the U.S. Government.
Reynolds is further quoted as saying "it's next to impossible" that 19 Arab terrorists alone outfoxed the mighty U.S. military, and that the demolition theory may hold the key to the 9/11 plot.
He calls the government's theory about the collapse of the twin towers vulnerable and full of holes.
Reynolds is retired from Texas A&M University, but holds the title of Professor Emeritus -- an honorary title bestowed upon select tenured faculty who have retired with ten or more years of service.
In a written statement, A&M President Robert Gates said Reynolds doesn't have office space on campus and that any statement made by Reynolds are in his capacity as a private citizen and do not represent the views of the university.
Gates said, "The American people know what they saw with their own eyes on September 11, 2001. To suggest any kind of government conspiracy in the events of that day goes beyond the pale."
