9.11 investigation

Kevin Ryan : On Why NIST's 9/11 WTC Reports Are False And Unscientific

In 2002, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was tasked by the US Government with "determin[ing] why and how WTC 1 and WTC 2 collapsed following the initial impacts of the aircraft and why and how WTC 7 collapsed." After years of work, the final reports were released (in 2005 and 2008 respectively) with the conclusion that all three had collapsed primarily due to fire. But just how "meticulous, exhaustive, and very realistic" was this research? Had it really answered all the questions and provided a trustworthy explanation that supported the official narrative of 9/11?

This week we welcome to the programme once again Kevin Ryan, co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and author of the book Another Nineteen, who joins us to share with us his assessment of the NIST reports, and why he believes them to be "false and unscientific."

TMR 079 : Kevin Ryan : Interview Notes

Published on Saturday, 16 August 2014 17:46

Kevin Ryan's work as Site Manager for the environmental testing division of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) led him to begin investigating the tragedy of September 11th, 2001. UL fired him in 2004 for publicly asking questions about UL's testing of the structural materials used to construct the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings as well as UL's involvement in the WTC investigation being conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Since 2006, he has been co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and a founding member of both Scholars for 9/11 Truth & Justice and the 9/11 Working Group of Bloomington. He has served as a board director at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and co-authored several books and numerous peer-reviewed scientific articles on the subject. Kevin Ryan gives public presentations and interviews and continues his research into the crimes of 9/11, in order to help people come to a better understanding.
