What sort of philosophers are these? And who certifies them?

Stupid Architectural Question:
Why would the buildings attacked be chosen?
Given the choice --
WTC versus Wall Street
Pentagon versus CIA
I would have thought that 'hitting' the latter two would have inflicted
more than the ones chosen. (would've killed stock brokers and spooks --
arguably the nastier variety of Capitalist functionaries -- rather than
insurance workers and military administrators).
Clue: does architectural form have something to do with the choice? Do
the objects destroyed qualify as 'psychological stabilizers' c.v. Colin
Rowe, Appendix to Collage City?

I am usually careful about netiquette even in heated arguments and I
recognize the policing duties of the moderator, but:
Gregory Wharton's supposedly 'excellent article'by David Kelley is a
fascist crap which I consider to be 'an assault on civilization'. I

I will of course provide detailed refutations of Kelley's 1940s Germanic
twaddle on request, but in the meantime I offer my apologies to the list
the colourful nature of my language.
Even so, I've got lots of architectural theory at my disposal and I'm
afraid to use it.
