Kevin Ryan: Top 10 Connections Between NIST and Nanothermite

Top 10 Connections Between NIST and Nanothermite
Posted by srsean1968 on October 22, 2009

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has had considerable difficulty determining a politically correct sequence of events for the unprecedented destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) buildings on 9/11. But despite a number of variations in NIST’s story, it never considered explosives or pyrotechnic materials in any of its hypotheses. This omission is at odds with several other striking facts; first, the requirement of the national standard for fire investigation (NFPA 921), which calls for testing related to thermite and other pyrotechnics, and second, the extensive experience NIST investigators have with explosive and thermite materials.

South Tower: Exploding Projectile

A close-up view of debris being ejected from the South Tower of the World Trade Center as the 30-floor top section falls to the east shows numerous smoking projectiles that look like comets. Several of them can be seen to explode. One such exploding projectile is followed here. It ejects two fragments, both of which undergo secondary explosions. (Note, the rising fragment to the left of the projectile under consideration appears to be a tumbling object that alternates from black to white to invisible. It passes behind one of the fragments described in the video.)

According to the most recent e-newsletter from ae911truth.org, the Youtube video of the interview with Richard Gage on KPMH TV in Fresno, CA is getting lots of hits. This video was posted May 28 at 911blogger in this thread: http://www.911blogger.com/node/20222 .

Richard Gage KMPH 26 Interview

The Fox TV (KMPH) affiliate in Fresno asked the kind of questions the Truth Movement has been waiting for. On their "Great Day" program, anchors Kim Stephens and Kopi Sotiropulos afforded Richard a friendly atmosphere, asked interesting questions, and reacted to his startling information appropriately and with a degree of humor. Very much missing was the familiar combative style normally associated with TV talk shows on which 9/11 Truth guests appear.

The South Tower collapse initiation

First of all,you have to see this video,than you'll be able to understand

and than the conclusion

(this is the new part)

The 12 Guys Who Planted the WTC Explosives?

After filming a days worth of footage at a 9/11 protest in the city where 2 of the 9/11 hijackers were from, an unknown man approached one of the protesters with a startling admission. He knew 12 of the men who were involved in the 9/11 plot.

True or false? I don't know, but interesting.

WTC Towers Destruction - Human Intelligence

Maybe I am repeating myself - But for possible newcomers to this website I feel this is one of the most obvious evidence that the official story of 9/11 is false - and I feel it is worth repeating.

The official account of what happened to the Twin Towers is that they "collapsed" because of weakened steel. But after watching these three videos available on YouTube and VideoGoogle it is absolutely clear to me that gravity alone not possibly could have pulverized these massive buildings!

Note the ENORMOUS mushroom-shaped-dust-cloud throwing hundreds of thousand tons of massive steel beams and concrete - several hundred meters outwards as it explodes from top to bottom with ENORMOUS force!

World Trade Center - The North Tower "Collapse"

6 years to build - 12 seconds to destroy

417 meters tall - 63,5 meters wide

When the World Trade Center towers were demolished they took the path of most resistance - straight down. Trough their own concrete and steel structures - in approximately 12 seconds.

You can time it yourself with the clock in the bottom of the screen.

Note the way hundreds of thousand tons of concrete and massive steel beams are being thrown like confetti more than 100 meters to the sides and up in an arch away from the tower, as it evidently explodes!

Or do you still believe it "collapsed"?

Many more videos of the so called collapses can be found in the link below

Can det cord and blasting caps self-destruct?

Anybody know about blasting caps or detonators that self-destruct?

The triumphant statement by a " demolition expert" on the History Channel that he saw no detonation cord, wiring or remnants of blasting caps at Ground Zero has given courage to OCT supporters.

This has come up in a long-running debate I'm running on an industry forum. The latest rejoinder I got was this

"you have not produced one blasting cap, nor one piece of wiring"

What I could find on the Web on the subject was all about detection of

A. detonators before they explode, or
B. explosives by means of chemical taggants after the blast

but nothing about detecting remnants of detonators post-blast (except that "stealth explosives" has been used as a term of ridicule for the controlled demolition argument.)

Re A, I found this: "Plastic weapons, plastic detonators, explosives enclosed into plastic cases and plastic mines are very difficult to detect."

I am beginning to suspect that the problem of detectability might actually be the other way around.

Bush Tells the Public Explosives Were Used on 9-11

Who's Operatives Mr. Bush?

Explosives Mr. Bush?

Either Explosives were used on 9-11 or president Bush is a terrible speaker.

Possible use of explosives indicated by government's own briefs

A recent story about Tenet's new book by Robert Parry returned my attention to the contents of the August 6, 2001 Presidential Daily Brief (PDB). Parry seems to be arguing for criminal negligence, but he quotes the end of the August 6 PBD:

"The PDB ended by noting that “FBI information … indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York. The FBI is conducting approximately 70 full field investigations throughout the US that it considers Bin Ladin-related. CIA and the FBI are investigating a call to our Embassy in the UAE in May saying that a group of Bin Ladin supporters was in the US planning attacks with explosives.”"

You may also recall President Bush's odd statement on September 15, 2006, when referring to the alleged details of KSM's interrogation:

Las Vegas' Stardust casino imploded

Las Vegas' Stardust casino imploded

By RYAN NAKASHIMA, AP Business Writer

From Stardust to just dust. The Las Vegas Strip's first mass-market casino-hotel was imploded early Tuesday in a hail of fireworks to make way for Boyd Gaming Corp.'s $4.4 billion megaresort Echelon.

Hundreds of people partied beneath tents and on makeshift patios before Boyd chairman Bill Boyd's four grandsons pushed a plunger to detonate the former Stardust casino. The blast generated a massive dust cloud that chased the revelers into cars, buses and nearby casinos.

"It hurts. We cried," said Sheila Navarro, 51, a school supplies buyer from Oxnard, Calif., who took shelter in the nearby Frontier casino-hotel. She came with three sisters, her mother, an aunt and a brother-in-law to say farewell to the casino she's gambled at for more than 30 years.

"It's very hard for me to find another casino to go to," she said. "Maybe in two years, three years, I'll have different feelings, but right now, my heart is broken."

Carpenter Marlene Cruz Proves Pre-planted Explosives in WTC Basement

On 9/12/2001, Peter Jennings interviews Marlene Cruz, a carpenter injured in one of the pre-collapse explosions in the WTC sub-basement level B long before the planes hit the towers. The first casualty of 9/11 admitted at Bellevue Hospital, Cruz is a living witness who proves that pre-planted explosives were used to weaken the foundations.

Head Structural Engineer of the WTC Towers Explains What Would Bring His Buildings Down

Twin Towers Engineered To Withstand Jet Collision

Eric Nalder

Engineers had to consider every peril they could imagine when they designed the World Trade Center three decades ago because, at the time, the twin towers were of unprecedented size for structures made of steel and glass.

"We looked at every possible thing we could think of that could happen to the buildings, even to the extent of an airplane hitting the side," said John Skilling, head structural engineer. "However, back in those days people didn't think about terrorists very much."

Skilling, based in Seattle, is among the world's top structural engineers. He is responsible for much of Seattle's downtown skyline and for several of the world's tallest structures, including the Trade Center.
