9/11 skeptic to discuss doubts over official story

Tribune Staff Writer

SOUTH BEND — Kevin Ryan doesn’t mince words when it comes to 9/11 — he just doesn’t buy what he calls the “official story” of it.

“That’s my message to people on this topic,” he said in a recent telephone interview. “The information we’ve been given is false.”

Ryan, who lives in Bloomington, will bring that message to South Bend on Monday, the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He plans to share his personal story of why he speaks out on the topic, which began in 2004.

That’s when Ryan was fired from his job at Environmental Health Laboratories Inc. in South Bend, a subsidiary of Underwriters Laboratories Inc. He now works as an engineer for a pharmaceutical company.

The firing came after Ryan wrote a letter to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which was probing the collapse of the World Trade Center’s twin towers.
