July 20, 2009 Cheri M. Roberts – Producer, Unspun Newz
First thing Monday morning, 9/11 truth activist group We Are Change released a developing story regarding the possible detention of Richard Gage, AIA - founder of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST).
UnSpun immediately made contact with Richard Gage, additional members of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth as well as NIST itself to clarify and or confirm the details of this incident.
NIST’s Press Officer, Michael Newman was kind enough to comment stating Richard Gage, AIA arrived at NIST’s Visitor Center where he was refused access to the building by guards due to his lack of an appointment. Gage arrived with a CD and letter for Dr. Shyam Sunder which he left with the guards at the front gate under their assurance said material would be delivered to Dr. Sunder as requested by Gage.
By 11:30am pacific time NIST’s Press Officer for Public Affairs, Michael Newman confirmed for UnSpun Newz that Richard Gage’s material had in fact been delivered directly to Dr. Sunder as promised.
We are Change member Ben Schnitger from Virginia was along and filming and initially broke this developing story on the We Are Change website. It was immediately reposted on multiple social networks across the world. UnSpun Newz would like to make the record clear as to what actually occurred.
According to their Press Officer, NIST guards initially confiscated Mr Schnitger’s footage, but it was later returned to him by NIST who according to Michael Newman there was no unlawful activity taking place.
