NIST/NCST Advisory Committee Meeting: video with slides and speaker names

The following is a slightly edited video from the NCST Advisory Committee Meeting with the NIST staff working on the WTC7 investigation (18 Dec 2007). We added slides and speaker names to better understand the status of the investigation. The last part of the meeting includes three different public comments, including Richard Gage (Architects for 9/11 Truth and James Gourley (representing the RST to NIST filed by Jones, Ryan, Gage and other scholars).

If you have problem with the web player plugin (and trust me, you're not the only one) just download the whole video and play it with your player.
Any DivX or XviD codec will do the job.


This is excellent! Great idea and nice work. This makes it so much easier to spread this information with the attn span of most internet viewers being small and unwilling to read text without images.

I think it's very important to get these pictures out, see who these people are, document it.

Eventually they will come across their own picture here and they will realize they are under a microscope on this issue and the decisions they make will be historic -- they will go down in history as the architects of the cover-up if people like Richard Gage are correct, and they have to be thinking of that.

Seeing themselves in presentations which include Richard speaking out are critical. They cannot be an insulated group anymore and cannot ignore it, know they are being analyzed.

Is there a way to get this on YouTube?

Discrediting By Association

BTW, your description of the speakers should read:

The last part of the meeting includes public comments by Richard Gage ( and attorney James Gourley (

The third "attorney" who speaks is the hoax attorney who threatened the original scholars group for Fetzer during the meltdown of that group, Jerry Leaphart, who only is there to make everyone else look nuts by promoting to NIST the idea that we believe that real planes didn't hit the WTC (Morgan Reynolds) and that space weapons destroyed the buildings (Judy Wood). He was involved in the original hoax report with them.

He doesn't explicitly say these in his presentation here, but neither does he really contribute anything either. Any participation by him is only to discredit, regardless of his own personal beliefs.

Please see:

Discrediting By Association:
Undermining the Case for Patriots Who Question 9/11

Also in our STJ press release:

"But this Request isn't the only one being made by groups critical of the Final Report conclusion. Another group -- Fetzer, Wood, Reynolds and Hass -- also filed requests for correction with NIST in the past two months. Their claims include assertions that a directed energy weapon destroyed the World Trade Center Towers, and that real jetliners did not hit the buildings. . . Gourley also notes that the online journal, 'The Journal of 9/11 Studies,' has published refutations of many of the unscientific claims such as these. 'Scientists have responded to these outlandish claims in writing. Their refutations have undergone peer review and have been approved prior to publication.' The Fetzer/Wood/Reynolds claims are unable to withstand any serious scientific scrutiny. "

>Is there a way to get this

>Is there a way to get this on YouTube?

I believe the main problem is that the bad compression can't keep the text readable enough.

>Discrediting By Association

Speaking of "third attorney", thanks for clarification. As you said it's pretty clear his (their) attempt to discredit the first two public speeches by association with the bad science promoted by the Fetzer/Wood group. We cannot update the video at this point, but our intention was to leave the video completely neutral, without any comments, and so it is. Thanks.


I appreciate your providing this BUT, any media that begins downloading before user initiation is totally obnoxious. Checking cache, this divx file, which is still downloading without my initiation, has passed 25, no 50, no 75, no 100, no 125, no 150, no 175, no 200, no 250, no 275, to 284 megabytes already. Is this really necessary? No. Of course not.

I see in the embedding code:

param name="autoplay" value="false"

I wish that someone please make this parameter work, maybe something like this?

param name="autodownload" value="NO-gofuckyerselfsillyinatempfolderuntiltoldtodootherwise"

Would you not agree that a smaller file, one that doesn't take until Doomsday to download and that would work just fine in an itsy bitysy teeny weeny little window, would be more appropriate for this site simply to whet people's appetites? A link to a larger, higher quality file, such as you have provided can easily be used with a download manager (an indispensable tool in this day and age) and a standalone player with decidely more functionality later. I can remember a time when people used to expend just a little bit more effort to give advanced warning to viewers/visitors as to file sizes for large files. What happened to that polite little gesture? Why has it been thrown out the window(s)? Did i just answer my own question?

I can imagine that many people who lack broadband see this as inconsiderate. It's just one of those little things that probably keeps many people from viewing important videos such as this. Is there any legitimate reason why the embedded divx player would need 35-65% usage of my CPU? No. More likely, it's just more shitty plugin software probably designed to fit the planned obsolesence model of Big SoftHard, Inc. to keep us in the never ending perpetual upgrade loop.

There are still millions and millions of people in this country who live in rural areas without broadband. I am fortunate to not one of them. But, if I were, I would have been out of here a long time ago.

I encourage you to remove the embedded video from this post until you find a suitable remedy. Otherwise, another wasteful download of 284 megabytes of data will begin again on load or reload of any page on which it is included (three pages so far here at blogger).

I already use flashblocker scripts to deal with Macromedia flash nonsense. Do I need to start searching for scripts capable of blocking divx now?

You're not totally wrong at

You're not totally wrong at this, but Stage6 (even if annoying) was the only viable option. We CAN'T provide a host for this high quality DivX (necessary for good readability). The encoding provided by YouTube/GoogleVideo is simply too bad for that kind of things. Do you have a solution?
