Mayor Bloomberg acted in a truly bizarre manner following the 9/11 attacks:
New York authorities' decision to ship the twin towers' scrap to recyclers has raised the anger of victims' families and some engineers who believe the massive girders should be further examined to help determine how the towers collapsed.
But New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg insisted there are better ways to study the tragedy of September 11.
"If you want to take a look at the construction methods and the design, that's in this day and age what computers do," said Bloomberg, a former engineering major. "Just looking at a piece of metal generally doesn't tell you anything."

His statement appears to indicate several possibilities:
1. Maybe he slept through his mechanical engineering courses.
2. Maybe he's an idiot.
3. Or maybe he was an accomplice after the fact, in that he authorized (or did not prevent when he should have) the destruction of WTC evidence.
I think both he and Mayor Giuliani knew exactly what was going on but chose to keep their mouths shut for personal reasons (possibly including cowardice).
Whatever the case, I will NEVER support this man. And I don't think you should, either.
