Statement on 9/11: "I have joined the growing cadre of scientists and other scholars, architects, engineers, and emergency personnel who have objectively reviewed the evidence, found serious and substantial discordance between the evidence and facts versus the official story as detailed in the 9/11 Commission's report or reported in the conventional media, and are calling for a new investigation of 9/11 by an unbiased and competent third party. It is our duty as scientists and scholars to evaluate facts objectively, and our duty as citizens to hold our government accountable to the pursuit of truth. It is only through facing the truth, whatever it may be, that society can progress."
