Appeal to NIST pursuant to Request for Correction published in the Journal of 9/11 Studies

In April, the team of presented a Request for Correction to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a lab under the Department of Commerce. This request was published in the June issue of the Journal of 9/11 Studies. The authors were James Gourley, Bob McIlvaine, Bill Doyle, Steven Jones, Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice

In their reply dated September 27, 2007, NIST states: “we are unable to provide a full explanation of the total collapse.”
And they expect the requesters to be satisfied with this response?!?
Remember, NIST is making these statements to men who lost family members in the Towers destruction… Bob McIlvaine and Bill Doyle, as well as to serious researchers Jones, Ryan, Gourley, Gage and the Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice.

Further from the NIST response letter: “NIST has stated that it found no corroborating evidence to suggest that explosives were used to bring down the buildings.” The next sentence admits: “NIST did not conduct tests for explosive residue…”
The Appeal correctly notes: “it is extremely easy to ‘find no evidence’ when one is not looking for evidence.”

A reviewer urged that the Appeal be published in the Journal with the comment: “the public should be given a chance to see the debate unfolding and how weak the NIST Response was. I believe [the] Appeal is more easily understood than the original Request and is valuable.”

It would be great to have a face to face with a representitive of the NIST and see if they could keep a straight face while explaining their ridiculous response.

"keep a straight face"

John Gross, lead engineer for NIST report couldn't pull it off.

NIST Is Circling The Drain

NIST (along with the official conspiracy) has nowhere to go but round and round in order to delay crashing and burning.

6 years of foot dragging ... perhaps hoping that we will just go away.

This Appeal Letter

This Appeal Letter demolishes NIST's response. The data about the cooling core at time of "collapse" in itself places NIST's "explanation" in the realm of fantasy.
