Dr. Moffett Smears ‘Active Thermitic’ Paper by Association- Again
http://www.opednews.com/populum/diarypage.php?did=13504

In another headlined article at OpEdNews.com, Sr. Editor Dr. Moffett has again smeared the peer-reviewed paper, Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe published in The Open Chemical Physics Journal, published by Bentham.org. A different Bentham.org journal, The Open Information Science Journal, recently published a hoax paper, and 2 editors resigned: Open Access Publisher Accepts Nonsense Manuscript for Dollars. See Dr. Moffett’s previous smear job rebutted by Dr. Michael Green, here: Pardon Our Dust, or, Why the World Trade Center Dust Matters. See Dr. Moffett’s current smear job here: 911 NanoTech Thermite Publisher Accepts Fake Paper, Editors quit

I find some areas of agreement with Dr. Moffet; for instance, he says: "The only way to find out what really happened [on 9/11] is to have a large panel of independent researchers reopen the case, with access to the classified documents that would be needed to make a valid assessment of all the data."

German website for infos about "Active Thermitic Material..." launched

We launched a new website here for the german speaking part of the world with a short overview on the latest study and a easy link to keep in mind. (even if the name is not 100% scientifically correct)

EDIT- corrected typos and my mistake about Farmer (thanks Tanabear- see comments), added more details incl. a number of quotes from the paper, and made hyperlinks- visit 911Reports for the links)
