• 9/11 Families and Experts Challenge NIST Building 7 Report in Damning Request for Correction


    Ten family members of 9/11 victims together with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth submitted a “request for correction” to NIST’s final report on World Trade Center Building 7 in April 2020.

    Methodically showing how eight areas in the report violated NIST’s information quality standards, the request aimed to compel NIST to reverse its conclusion that fires were the cause of Building 7’s destruction. NIST’s response to the request — first its initial decision in August 2020 and then its final decision in June 2021 — was blatantly unresponsive, unsubstantive, and unscientific.

    In September 2021, the family members and AE911Truth filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging NIST’s response. Their goal is to force the agency to perform new analyses and develop a new “probable collapse sequence” that is physically possible and consistent with the available evidence. That lawsuit is currently ongoing.

Late last night, eight 9/11 family members, ten architects and structural engineers, and AE911Truth filed a response to NIST’s motion to dismiss in our ongoing lawsuit against the federal agency. The lawsuit challenges NIST’s decision on the “request for correction” that we originally submitted in April 2020 regarding the agency’s final report on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7.

This week on 9/11 Free Fall, public interest attorney Mick Harrison and AE911Truth Director of Strategy Ted Walter join host Andy Steele to discuss the lawsuit that AE911Truth will soon file against NIST over the agency’s unlawful response to the damning request for correction that AE911Truth submitted last year in an attempt to compel the agency to revise its report on World Trade Center Building 7.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology claimed in its final report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 that “there were no witness reports” of an explosion when the 47-story skyscraper fell straight into its footprint late in the afternoon of September 11, 2001.

That claim, long discredited by eyewitness reports of a shockwave ripping through the building and multiple explosions going off, was further challenged in a new filing made today by 9/11 families and Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is sorely disappointed to report that on Friday, August 28, 2020, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued its initial decision denying the request for correction that we — together with ten 9/11 family members and 88 architects and structural engineers — submitted on April 15, 2020, regarding NIST’s 2008 report on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7.

On this week's episode of 9/11 Free Fall, attorney Mick Harrison and AE911Truth Director of Strategy Ted Walter join host Andy Steele for an in-depth discussion of the request for correction submitted to NIST earlier this week regarding the agency's 2008 report on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7.
