Follow this link where Christopher Ward (executive director from the Port Authority) talks with David Shuster:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540...39976#28939976
And yes that David Shuster guy pisses me of to because it's like he doesn't listen to Mr. Ward.

It's rather obvious that David (Shister) Shuster has an agenda and Christopher Ward knows it. I wonder how much Donald Trump payed MSNBC to air this pile of steaming . . . . .

looks like the msnbc polls are turning from rebuilding the twin towers to let the freedom tower be built ever since the guy came on from the port authority of ny and nj cam on. Probably because everyone noticed how bias david was!

David Shuster makes me sick he's up to something. I have no respect for that man. And who was that dude with the jacked up hair. He say he's the designer of what he calls the twin towers II, it's the samething as the last two. I think Mr Ward did a great job stand up for this project.

Soon they want be able to say anything bad. We're making so much progress.

Do you have information that the reinforcing steel is also coming from Luxembourg? I know the large perimeter beams are because that's the only place that steel is available but I highly doubt they're importing the small steel for the reinforcing. There's no reason to incur the costs associated with importing steel sizes that are readily available here.

Actually, does anyone know what Donald Trump thinks of the CURRENT design? Not that it really matters one iota what he thinks either way, but everytime I see advocates of the Twin Towers II quoting Donald Trump where he describes the Freedom Tower design as horrendous, it was from like 2002 and he was talking about the OLD design (which I think we all agree was horrendous), not the current better Freedom Tower design, much less the newer designs for the rest of the buildings. Does anyone know if Trump has spoken about the current designs?
