A week ago I’m rearranging my office, hanging pictures and tapestries and the like and what do I discover? Ha! Upon my retirement Robert M. Gates as President of Texas A&M University had signed a commendation in December 2002 celebrating my “distinguished service” of 28 years for the university, its students, former students, faculty and administration (see pic below). Next, I discovered in a second encomium Chairman of the Board of Regents of the Texas A&M University System Lowry Mays had signed a declaration in December 2003 bestowing the title “Professor Emeritus, Economics,” TAMU, upon me.
In June, 2005, my suspicion that 9/11 was a false flag operation became widely known after UPI, the Washington Times, and the Drudge Report picked up on my article on LewRockwell.com. Dr. Gates then issued the following statement:
“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.”
Gates’ statement has been taken down by the university but is cached here. My article on Lewrockwell.com was taken down too in order to avoid embarrassing Ron Paul’s run for the presidency. To learn more about this brouhaha, see my 2007 article/pdf on this site in which I take both Gates and Lowry Mays to task.
