The amphibious assault vessel was built with 7.5 tons of steel salvaged from the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
Seven and a half tons of the steel used in its construction came from the rubble from the World Trade Center. Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down at Amite Foundry and Machine in Amite, Louisiana to cast the ship's bow section. It was poured into the molds on 9 September 2003. With seven tons melted down and cast to form the ship's "stem bar" — part of the ship's bow. The shipyard workers reportedly treated it with "reverence usually accorded to religious relics", gently touching it as they walked by. One worker actually delayed his retirement after 40 years' work in order to be a part of the project.
WTC Steel Removal
The Expeditious Destruction of the Evidence at Ground Zero
Some 185,101 tons of structural steel have been hauled away from Ground Zero. Most of the steel has been recycled as per the city's decision to swiftly send the wreckage to salvage yards in New Jersey. The city's hasty move has outraged many victims' families who believe the steel should have been examined more thoroughly. Last month, fire experts told Congress that about 80% of the steel was scrapped without being examined because investigators did not have the authority to preserve the wreckage.
Recycled WTC Steel Used in US Warship
News stories in 2006 reported that 24 tons of steel from the World Trade Center was being used to manufacture a warship named the U.S.S. New York by Northrop Grumman in a shipyard on the banks of the Mississippi
First, where is the requirement to have an "independant" entity test the steel?
Can you show me somewhere in legal document that says the government must have an outside agency investigate terrorist attacks? Anywhere?
Plus, steel thought to be of evidentiary value in regards to the Twin Towers is still being stored in a hangar at JFK.
Don’t you think if our government was involved into pulling off 911 using demolition that they are going to make the steel available for outside independent investigators to examine the steel and they find the real explosive evidences and publish their findings for the world to see, I don’t think so! Why are you always defending the government on every issue concerning 911?

They just swallow the first cup of kool-aid from Alex Jones, Craig Ranke, Avery, Jones, Meyssan etc and parrot everything they hear. Maybe its because I know that Osama Bin Laden isnt the sheep herding, cave dwelling moron that truthers try to portray him as.

I wonder if warnings and moving to the trash bin is in order as it was done to 2 of my threads a couple of days ago.
Someone joked about the ship would collapse if in the presence of a small fire.
