19. Chomsky clearly states

 

That he has "no opinion on what happened to building 7."
He merely stated some facts about 9/11 that are evident to everyone.
And though Dr. Chomsky has not seen papers written in journals stating that the towers were not brought down by planes, they are out there. I guess he just doesn't read the engineering journals. Many have been peer reviewed. There are differences in even the engineering world as to how the towers collapsed.

As far as I'm concerned, though I do respect Chomsky on socio-political matters, I am not sure that he has the proper training to make opinions about engineering. Though the Bush Administration may not have set up the collapse of the towers, they surely did let it happen. There are just still too many questions, even in the official report to convince me that these planes caused so much damage.
Then there is the Pentagon. Since day zero, I asked myself, "Where are the engines and where is the damage from the titanium used in them?" I saw pictures of large spools of wire that were still standing on end, and were not toppled by such a force. This alone told me that something was up.

Again, I am not sure what happened, because I have not been privy to all of the "evidence," and still have many many questions.

Chomsky may be correct most of the time, but I think that he missed the point this time. Perhaps he was just trying to keep his credibility intact, and not become one of "those" conspiracy theorists. Who knows.
