I just skimmed over that long article, but the gist of it is really sad...people were needlessly hurt, and a lot of money wasted due to some 'envisions of grandeur'.....

It is important to discover the true reasons for the bridge collapse, but why all the secrecy? These sorts of investigations always seem to take far longer than they need to.
Removing bridge information that was in the public domain, smacks of a damage limitation exercise behind closed doors, to my way of thinking...
