Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Kevin Ryan and Dr. Steven E. Jones

These two important episodes of Visibility 9-11 welcomes back to the program, Kevin Ryan and Physicist Dr. Steven E. Jones.

Kevin is a chemist who is formerly of Underwriter Laboratories. Kevin became a 9-11 whistleblower when he was fired for writing his now infamous 2004 letter to Frank Gayle at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). Kevin has been very prolific in his research since getting fired by UL and has either authored or co-authored many important papers relating to 9-11 since 2004.

Dr. Jones is a retired physics professor and first emerged in late 2005 with his important paper, Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse?, and has continued to do groundbreaking research into the "collapses" of all three high rise buildings on September 11th, 2001.

Kevin and Dr. Jones both sit as co-editors at the Journal of 9-11 Studies and Dr. Jones is the founder of Scholars for 9-11 Truth and Justice. Both have been stalwarts in the scientific and scholarly area of the 9-11 Truth Movement..

George Flynn of Words of Freedom Welcomes Michael Wolsey of Visibility 9-11

MIchael talks to a local Colorado listening audience about the upcoming paper from Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice which details a "thermite fingerprint" in the 9/11 dust. Thanks to George Flynn and the great folks at KRFC in Fort Collins for getting this important information to a mainstream audience! Visibility 9-11 is committed to raising awareness around this exciting new scientific paper and will be featuring special broadcasts with Dr. Jones and Kevin Ryan in the near future.

Nanotechnology: 9/11 and the Future

With the advent of the discoveries surrounding the 9/11/01 nano-thermite evidence, along with what is about to come down the pike, I decided to do a cursory layman study of “nanotechnology”.

One nanometer (nm) is one billionth, or 10-9, of a meter. It takes about 3-10 atoms to span the length of a nanometer. 1 nanometer = 1,000 microns (µm) (micrometers). A red blood cell is 7 microns in diameter. A bacterium might be 200 nanometers in length.

This 10 minute video gives an excellent overview of nanotechnology.

Truth & Deception: An Interview with Kevin Ryan on 9/11

In this interview Kevin Ryan discusses the science and psychology of 9/11. He also mentions an upcoming paper that provides strong evidence of incendiary residues found in the World Trade Center dust. Ryan, who is one of the co-authors of the paper, says that it is "...much more conclusive than anything we've published before, and is supported by considerable physical testing."

11 September 2008 - valley truth event

Two Films and discussions in Northampton, MA - Valley911truth.org
Media Education Foundation, 60 Masonic Street; Northampton, MA -
Sept. 11, 2008; 6:00 PM ZERO 8:00 IMPROBABLE COLLAPSE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 11, 2001 will be remembered through time; this 7th anniversary can be the completion of a cycle of government-media cover-up and/or an inept investigation of one of the greatest crimes in history. Valley 9/11 Truth has about one hundred members discussing what happened that day, and how it has been used to engage an hysterical foreign affairs plunder, and loss of civil liberties. For those known as 'truthers', the greatest fear is in what could be next, if the unanswered questions of what happened are not resolved.

On Thursday September 11, two films are being presented with discussions with Valley 9/11 Truth in Northampton, MA. The first one begins at 6:00 PM, "Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic;" the second at 8:00 - "ZERO, an investigation into the events of 9/11." The latter is a recent Italian film, shown in European Parliament in February 2008 and that will be broadcast on Russian TV this September 12.

The Devil in the Details

a review of "The Hidden History of 9-11" (2nd ed., revised and updated), edited by Paul Zarembka

http://www.amazon.com/Hidden-History-9-11-Paul-Zarembka/dp/158322825X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1218129756&sr=1-1

by Tod Fletcher

THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF 9-11, edited by Paul Zarembka, professor of economics at SUNY Buffalo, is a revised and updated second edition of an important early contribution to the growing scholarly analysis of 9/11. The first, hardback edition is so expensive that few have been able to read the book until now, so its entire content will be new to virtually everyone. It presents detailed analyses by academics of the official account of what happened on that day, highlighting innumerable serious problems that demonstrate that the official story is clearly false. The book contains three contributions from David Ray Griffin, and one each from Kevin Ryan and Nafeez Ahmed, all well-known to seekers of 9/11 truth. In addition it presents worthy contributions from Zarembka himself, Jay Kolar, Don Jacobs, David MacGregor, Bryan Sacks and Diana Ralph.

The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites by Kevin Ryan

The Top Ten Connections Between NIST and Nano-Thermites
Kevin R. Ryan, 7-02-08

“Was the steel tested for explosives or thermite residues? … NIST did not test for the residue of these compounds in the steel.”
NIST Responses to FAQs, August 2006

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 (Douglas 2006, Ryan 2006, Gourley 2007). 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.

A plea to Bloggers...HELP RICHARD GAGE ...email Architects

Wow! Today, (Wed. June 25th) on the Alex Jones show was an interview with Kevin Ryan and Richard Gage. Kevin explains how the characteristics from the analysis of thermite samples connects to the companies involved with the NIST coverup. It is pretty dynamic. I am sure someone will post an audio of that interview.

I want to emphasize a point which Richard Gage is desperately trying to make with all the people in the 9/11 Truth Movement. He is asking us to please, please email architects (and engineers). This is simple. He explains it on ae911truth.org. Let's support Gage !!! Let's help him out.

The action is simple. Get the email address of an architect or an engineer. Email a message similar to this:

"I know that you are an expert on these kind of things. I ran across this short TV interview with an architect.
http://www.ae911truth.net/omnitv_interview.htm And I also visited this website supported by many architects. www.ae911truth.org
What do you think about Building 7? "

Scientists, Architects & Engineers 9/11 Truth Radio Show w' Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, Ron Brookman, Scott Grainger, Kamal Obeid

Monday May 26, 2008


Kevin Ryan


Richard Gage


Kamal Obeid

Listen 10:00 pm - 12:00 midnight (CST) to Questioning War- Organizing Resistance on the WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com and to our guests - Kevin Ryan, Richard Gage, AIA, Ron Brookman, Kamal Obeid, Scott C. Grainger, PE.

Kevin Ryan is a former Site Manager for Environmental Health Laboratories, a division of Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Mr. Ryan, a Chemist and laboratory manager, was fired by UL in 2004 for publicly questioning the report being drafted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on their World Trade Center investigation. In the intervening period, Ryan has completed additional research while his original questions, which have become increasingly important over time, remain unanswered by UL or NIST.

Zero: 9/11 - a review.

If Matt Taibbi had even one percent of Gore Vidal's intellectual grasp of American history, perhaps then it would make reading his presumed 'leftist' opinion about 9/11 a little easier to stomach. (I presume that Taibbi pitches from the left, because his screed is published at Alternet.org and AfterDowningStreet.org.) Fortunately, we don't need him. Gore Vidal is still among us, and it is his image and voice in the new Italian documentary 'Zero: an investigation into 9/11', that expresses a critical perspective of 9/11 that will ring true to the ears of those who will hear, and will help to free the prisoners currently living out the Allegory of the Cave, mesmerized by shadows of terror, cast upon the wall by the likes of yellow journalists like Taibbi.

Thom Hartmann Show, November 8, 2007
Kevin Ryan and Michael Shermer Debate
What Really Happened on 9/11

[The transcript below begins as Host Thom Hartmann is explaining some background relating to his research into the JFK assassination, about an hour an eight minutes into the unedited recording of the show at http://www.whiterosesociety.org/content/hartmann/HartmannShow-(8-11-2007).mp3 .]

TH: I’m very skeptical of anybody who says I know exactly what went on, or I know exactly what didn’t go on. So my position is very agnostic on this. I think it's going to take – I mean, here we are, with the JFK assassination, 40 years later, 44 years later – I think it's gonna take a long time to figure out. That said, a good healthy discussion, a good healthy debate and raising the questions and for that matter raising the answers to the questions, is a reasonable and healthy thing.
