Rapid removal of evidence from WTC site


There has been much criticism of the decision by FEMA to remove all teh WTC debris as rapidly as possible and have it shipped overseas or melted down. Certainly there was the urgent need to search for survivors -- but not in the case of Building 7, which had long been evacuated. Also, there's a big difference between removal of the evidence and destruction of the evidence. FEMA had it recycled, most of it shipped to India and China quickly at cut-rate prices.

It's not like they figured it was just useless garbage: NYC officials had every debris truck outfitted with GPS trackers at $1,000 a pop, and fired one driver who took too long a break. Interestingly, the only reason FEMA was in NY at the time was that it had coincidentally arrived on September 10 to conduct a war game exercise.

Whatever their reasoning, the effect was that it is now impossible to scrutinize the remains of the building for evidence of bombs. Even discounting the whole idea of explosives, you'd think they might want to examine the steel to discover why the buildings collapsed. After all, no steel skyscraper had ever collapsed from fire before. It could be kind of important to find out why. Should have been worth investigating.

I think it is somewhat suspicious that they got rid of all that steel so quickly. Just from a building safety perspective, a thorough investigation of this unprecedented collapse would be more than warranted. Why the rush? Why the GPS systems? It fits the profile of somebody not wanting an investigation to occur.

Bottom line, me, I give it:
