Engineering firm co-founder seeks new investigation

J. Marx Ayres, former member of the California Seismic Safety Commission and the National Institute of Sciences Building Safety Council, and co-founder of one of the largest building engineering firms in Los Angeles, has signed the "Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth" petition requesting a new investigation of 9/11.

In his statement, Mr. Ayres wrote, “I support the work of Dr. Steven Jones. He has provided a scientific foundation for the collapse of the three World Trade Center (WTC) towers. I read the FEMA September, 2002 report, prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers, and initially accepted their theory of the collapse of WTC 1 and 2. As more information became available on the web, I was motivated to research the subject in a more rigorous manner. I have carefully studied the Jones 2006 paper, “Why Indeed Did the WTC Buildings Completely Collapse?” and concluded that it is a rational step-by-step study that meets the accepted standards for scientific building research. His critical reviews of the FEMA, NIST, and 9/11 Commission reports are correct.”
