Riggle was a major in the United States Marine Corps Reserve where he served in Liberia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. He is currently a public affairs officer with the New York City Public Affairs unit and is a recipient of the Combat Action Ribbon. He has referred to his military experiences on The Daily Show, often when acting as the show's "Military Analyst", sometimes facetiously claiming he could kill any other member of the show. He is the only Daily Show cast member to have been in the U.S. military

I can't really make out the 9/11 video. The picture is real blurry and I can't tell whether it could be that guy or not. Is there any way to find a better quality video?

Rob lives in Los Angeles, California these days. Prior to that he lived in New York F***ing City for 10 years! However, there’s a good chance he’ll be coming to a town near you in the not too distant future. Riggle is on the road, performing stand up all across America these days! You should check it out…
Capt. Riggle left active duty in the summer of 2000 and immediately joined the Marine Corps Reserves. In the fall of 2001 Capt. Riggle was in New York City. His reserve unit, MTU-17, stationed in Manhattan, were among the first military responders to the attacks on the World Trade Centers. Capt. Riggle was activated from Sept. 12th through the 30th, 2001, where he worked at ground zero moving rubble by hand in the bucket brigades. On November 10th (the Marine Corps birthday) Capt. Riggle received orders back to active duty for one year. He was assigned to Central Command (CENTCOM) in Tampa, Florida.

I think it's awesome that this guy knew right away that the buildings collapsed due to "structural failure mostly due to the intense fires", since obviously he wasn't in the building.
Never mind all those WTC workers and first responders that were actually IN the building that thought there were multiple bombs planted at lower levels because they continually heard and were thrown around by other blasts while trying to escape or rescue other people. Nope, he knew right away when firemen and police came out of the buildings saying there's more bombs going off.
"Structural failure," says Joe Schmo from the street. Who needs an independent investigation?
Where was this guy when before the housing & banking collapses. I'm sure he could have told you right away exactly what the problem was. Volatile assets, of course.

Nice! I was planning to look for voice analysis software too, but I suppose it wont hurt to wait and see what you can conclude. Not being sure is a bitch. But what I do know for sure is, that stranger things have happend.
I also allways have wondered wich members demanded that posts about 911 aught to be under close srutiny. In my experience, it is usually dangerous to speak about something, if you are right about something.
as the saying goes: it is dangerous to be right, when your government is wrong
