Why are the ASCE Journals being dishonest and misleading concerning how the WTC Towers collapsed?

As shown in an earlier post by Richard Johns, there is a new letter on the Journal of 911 Studies which describes dishonest and unethical behavior by the Journal of Engineering Mechanics and its parent organization, the ASCE Journals and their Board of Governors, regarding their refusal to correct a clearly dishonest and fraudulent paper they published concerning the collapse of the WTC Towers in January 2011.

The letter can be found here http://www.journalof911studies.com/resources/2014SepLetterSzambotiJohns.pdf

This stonewalling behavior is similar to that observed of the NIST Director when confronted earlier this year with evidence that the NIST WTC 7 report omitted pertinent structural features from its analysis which would have made impossible the collapse initiation hypothesis presented in the report. See the December 2013 letter by attorney William Pepper to the Dept. of Commerce Inspector General on this issue here

Initial response from DoC Inspector General to William Pepper letter concerning NIST WTC 7 report structural feature omissions

Attached is the initial response received on Jan. 14, 2014 from the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General’s office regarding the complaint letter sent by attorney Dr. William Pepper on Dec. 12, 2013. The Inspector General has sent the information provided in the Pepper letter to NIST management for a response.

Individual citizens are encouraged to write or call the DoC Inspector General’s office themselves to let them know you are interested in this issue and to insist that the Inspector General ensure that the NIST be open and transparent here, and to also ensure that there is no conflict of interest. Anyone involved in the original report, which is now under scrutiny with allegations of impropriety, should be precluded from the response activity.

Letter to U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General concerning structural feature omissions in the NIST WTC 7 Report

In the last two months there has been a post here and there mentioning the structural feature omissions in the NIST WTC 7 Report that were found in early 2012, shortly after the drawings for WTC 7 were released. Subsequent analyses show that when these features are included the collapse initiation hypothesis of the Report becomes impossible.

A letter to the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General, concerning the structural feature omissions and asking that he investigate and have the NIST correct the Report, was sent by a well known attorney, Dr. William Pepper, on behalf of Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth, on December 12, 2013. The letter was sent via courier, so there is no doubt it was received on December 12, 2013 by the Inspector General's office at the U.S. Commerce Department. There has been no response as of yet, and it is important that the public at large be made aware of this issue without further delay.

I would urge anyone and everyone to disseminate this information as far and wide as possible, as it shows there was a certain level of impropriety involved in writing the WTC 7 Report, and that the demand for a new WTC 7 investigation by those skeptical of the Report's conclusions was in order all along.
