Jim Pierce – Worked for AON Corp and was cousin of George W. Bush.
MEANS, MOTIVE, OPPORTUNITY
Means: On floor 83 of the south tower, there was AON Corporation, a Chicago-based competitor of Marsh. Today, General Richard Myers, one of the people most responsible for not protecting us on 9/11, is a director at AON. But on 9/11, the most interesting character working for AON was Jim Pierce, the cousin of George W. Bush.
Motive: Although it is unclear if Jim Pierce had motivations to kill the 11 people he was supposed to be meeting with that morning by calling them to an office meeting in the top floor of the south tower, it is being diligently investigated.
Jim’s father Scott Pierce, formerly a partner at G.H. Walker & Co, pled guilty to 2,000 counts of mail fraud in 1985, as President of E.F. Hutton. Although we can’t blame the sins of the father on the son, we at least get a sense that his family (the Bush crime family) has a propensity for illegitimate business, and that this was likely a motivating factor for Jim Pierce to get involved at some level in an overall plot.
Opportunity: Jim Pierce was managing director of AON on 9/11, and he had arranged a meeting on the 105th floor of the south tower for that morning. Pierce survived that day, despite the fact that twelve people came to the meeting in the south tower, and eleven of them died. The location of the meeting had been changed, the night before, to the Millenium Hotel, where Pierce watched the south tower as it was hit by the aircraft. Apparently the meeting attendees were not all notified of the change in location.[http://www.historycommons.org/entity.jsp?entity=jim_pierce]
AON modified “unknown” parts of floor 83 in 1997. Some photos of the impact zone suggest that the most explosive part of the fireball erupting from the south tower came from the east side of the building, near floor 83 (see NIST report NCSTAR 1-5A, figure 7-7).
