LOL! Not quite!

Our first "debunker" post, features a non-argument, but not ad hominem:

It's non-sequitur. I think the right answer here is "no one cares."



None of the usual debunkers have anything to add to the discussion?

Astaneh-Asl, who received money from the National Science Foundation to investigate the collapse
- From OP



NSF leadership has two major components: a director who oversees NSF staff and management responsible for program creation and administration, merit review, planning, budget and day-to-day operations; and a 24-member National Science Board (NSB) of eminent individuals that meets six times a year to establish the overall policies of the foundation. The director and all Board members serve six year terms. Each of them, as well as the NSF deputy director, is appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

I just found that interesting.... Though you guys wold too

That's what they're saying so far. Just give things more time to cool down.


I emailed Astaneh-Asl personally maybe a couple of years ago, about WTC collapse features that NIST or FEMA did not address. At that point in time, he apparently didn't even think there was that much of a cover-up. He just told me he wasn't able to answer my questions.

He'd been trying to simulate/model the collapses for a couple of years, at least. I don't mean to sound like an ass but if you ask me it took him long enough just to figure out that his collapse simulations weren't going to work.

It's interesting that there is EVEN a Cover up being suspected. Whether this points to more proof in favor of the 9/11 conspiracy or not will have to be seen but nevertheless.. the title says it all.

NEW ORLEANS - The professional organization for engineers who build the nation's roads, dams and bridges has been accused by fellow engineers of covering up catastrophic design flaws while investigating national disasters.


CaptainObvious, responds with...


Design flaws kiddies!! Not... BOMB residue ...or Thermite.



Well, really that isn't a good response or argument because it wouldn't be hard to imagine if one covers up one thing with human lives in the balance, to do the same with something else. It wouldn't have to be the same exact thing.

The point is something is being covered and it can take different forms.

OK. This engineer recieved money from the NSF. Not that he is a part of or director of the NSF.

NIST and ASCE directors are appointed directly from the president.

I believe there is a big difference.

And I believe that is what this man is pointing out.

The society got a $1.1 million grant from the Army Corps of Engineers to study the levee failures. Similarly, the Federal Emergency Management Agency paid the group about $257,000 to investigate the World Trade Center collapse.


257,000? 25% of the price of my house..... terrible.



Well this is all going to turn around this year. So dont be afraid you all. Speak up. Fight the disinformations spreaders who pretend they are troothers. Share the truth on every web page you go on. Be part of the new world.

All of this is really intense! Very Exciting as well! I'm glad engineers have the courage to speak of for this sort of thing and not let it fall to be forgotten. This should actually occur more often for the sake of progression's sake.

This year people will know.


He also questioned the makeup of the society's investigation team. On the team were the wife of the trade center's structural engineer and a representative of the buildings' original design team

A stacked Illuminati deck as always... Level the playing field...

If they have the smarts then any one does.. the man on the street
does as done with any Jury trial.

They just care if you vote or have a drivers license and your the judge of
anything.

Elitism at its best with 911.

ED: Big mistake getting Bush and the whole unqualified administration.
Mac Cain the first time might have been OK but now he is with Bush
and the bankers. They did in Spitzer.

They will do in us again. Protest at BS to give bankers money to
home owners for the bail out. Isn't that the way it works.
Home owners payments gen collected and the banks make money.
Now its bust and get money handouts for the poor elite.

Gene Corley, Charles Thornton, Paul Mlaker and Mete Sozen were authors of the Oklahoma City bombing report. This group also lead the ASCE team who volunteered to explain the WTC collapses.

Therese McAllister, John Gross, Ronald Hamburger, Harold Nelson and Ramon Gilsanz were contributors to the FEMA report which subsumed the ASCE investigation. This group also contributed to the NIST reports.

To this day, the only official report on the collapse of WTC7 is that provided by ASCE/FEMA ("best hypothesis has only a low probability of occurrence. Further research, investigation, and analyses are needed to resolve this issue"). NIST continues to choke on it.

FEMA demonstrated their lack of integrity and utter contempt for the public when they were caught staging a fake press conference last October (which MSNBC, FOX and other channels dutifully transmitted).

This little conspiracy involved a considerable number of FEMA staff and journalists apparently untroubled with the public deception they were part of. FEMA's external affairs director took the fall and it cost him the post he was about to take as director of public affairs for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. I imagine he'd proved himself too incompetent in the art of deception for that job.

THIS TOPIC I FIND IS IMPECCABLY AND UTTERLY IMPORTANT FOR ALL OF US TO FOCUS ON.

We have something really manifesting itself as a step in the right direction toward getting more information as to what is really going on with the Engineers that were in charge of the task.

We have to uncover these cover-ups and find the truth.

I don't know about the rest of you but this is getting

A few points to be made:


In the World Trade Center case, critics contend the engineering society wrongly concluded skyscrapers cannot withstand getting hit by airplanes.


This sentence is damning IMO. If the society wrongly concluded that skyscrapers cannot withstand getting hit by airplanes, they are saying there had to be something else to help. Meaning a controlled demolition of some sort.


Similarly, the Federal Emergency Management Agency paid the group about $257,000 to investigate the World Trade Center collapse.


Just as a comparison. One of our current projects in DC tallies close to $200,000. And that is for a facade investigation, which is hardly on the same calliber as investigating the WTC.

So, in essence, they are not just saying that there is a cover up for design flaws. Either directly or indirectly.

Kevin Ryan, the UL whistleblower who brought to light the NIST fiasco re: the certification and testing of the steel used in the WTC, has a presentation about the NIST report that in part discusses the ASCE team led by Gene Corley and how it was folded into NIST's report.

Here's a link to his powerpoint presentation, "The NIST World Trace Center Report: A New Standard for Deception," and another to his google video.

He lays out very clearly how the same forensic engineering "team" brought us the reports of OKC, ASCE and NIST.

I thought the amount of work done by only such a small group of engineers should be re-iterated; this is not "thousands" or even "hundreds" of engineers making the final calls in these studies, ie ASCE, FEMA, NIST, as far as final hypotheses go.

I've even seen video of John Gross giving a presentation and you can tell just by watching him that he has something to hide. He blushed, he appeared stand-offish, and he denied anyone finding molten metal at the WTC complex, even though if anyone would know, he certainly should, especially since it was even in the FEMA report that he helped create before he went off to NIST. These people are plain scum.



FEMA demonstrated their lack of integrity and utter contempt for the public when they were caught staging a fake press conference last October (which MSNBC, FOX and other channels dutifully transmitted).



I actually had not heard of this until now.


FEMA has truly learned the lessons of Katrina. Even its handling of the media has improved dramatically. For example, as the California wildfires raged Tuesday, Vice Adm. Harvey E. Johnson, the deputy administrator, had a 1 p.m. news briefing.

Reporters were given only 15 minutes' notice of the briefing, making it unlikely many could show up at FEMA's Southwest D.C. offices.
[...]
No one asked about trailers with formaldehyde for those made homeless by the fires. And the media seemed to be giving Johnson all day to wax on and on about FEMA's greatness.

Of course, that could be because the questions were asked by FEMA staffers playing reporters. We're told the questions were asked by Cindy Taylor, FEMA's deputy director of external affairs, and by "Mike" Widomski, the deputy director of public affairs. Director of External Affairs John "Pat" Philbin asked a question, and another came, we understand, from someone who sounds like press aide Ali Kirin.

Asked about this, Widomski said: "We had been getting mobbed with phone calls from reporters, and this was thrown together at the last minute."


www.washingtonpost.com...

Why didn't they present it as such, then? Why fake a conference?

He said they were actually expecting reporters to show up. Right. To their SW DC offices, on 15 minutes notice? Can you imagine you're a reporter, you get 15 minutes notice and you have to stop whatever you're doing, hit the road, and be there in less than 15 minutes through all the DC traffic from wherever you happened to be?

Smells just like your typical FEMA corruption to me. A day early on 9/11, late for Katrina, and don't forget all their REX-84 detainment centers. This must just be their bread and butter, staging fake media conferences.

If this investigation doesn't get derailed--big if--it will eventually lead directly to the NIST report.

Corley and his merry band of forensic engineers got their start in whitewashing the OKC plot, then went on to 9/11 with the initial ASCE reports. These were the basis of the NIST report and Corley and his team became a part of the NIST project.

So, recap: the methodology of the ASCE reports have been challenged and are now being officially investigated for gov'tal influence and general hack-for-payism. The same people who directed these reports also were the core team for the NIST report, which was based on the ASCE reports.

That's one flimsy firewall. This is big.

Edit to add: that's why you see Corley quoted at the end of the original article, smearing the motives of the people who raised the accusations in the first place: time-honored debunker tactics that anyone who reads this board should be inured to from endless over-exposure.

The CIA is the main source of science copy that won't help a stitch in
any energy solution. Even present day solutions are suppressed.


The hidden science dictatorship....



Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Also remember- now that 9/11 evidence has been destroyed anyone can accuse anyone of anything and everything. It is now a free for all- and it was designed this way- the smart people can bicker and argue and never reach a "proven" conclusion on either side- While this occurs we all miss the important details of the next operation.

I am off this grotesque little merry-go-round with my eyes wide open, peeled, perched and alert.

9/11 was the opening act!


PS- the wonderful link you provide shows how "they" turn it on. Turn off society and return to our human nature and its easy to see through it all.

SNAP- yes its that simple and quick

I've been telling everyone I know about this post to get their attention towards this.

Teachers, classmates, kindegarteners, idealistic college students... EVERYONE..


WE NEED TO BRING THIS TO THE FRONT PAGE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES so everyone can see it. Don't you see how impressive this is! THIS NEEDS TO BE PUSHED.

Well the situation is not good... I'm repeating a post I just made..
I'll make this statement:

How does one break free of slavery?

We are not slaves?

We do not know anything else other than what the government tells us.
The rest is called secrets or conspiracy.
There are many firm believers in copy from sources that cloud real issues.

We do not work for them unless we do what we are told.
There is no recourse to UFOs or 911 or other lies or conspiracies on their
part.

Some may be OK with this but others are not free to think or act without
butting heads with those of the mind set of the slave holders.

For good measure I'll put JFK and JFK JR in this ball of wax post.
Nam... another.

ED: Yes, he speaks of the people that hid science, but it might as well
be the same people doing the rest of the dirty deeds to us, and I
think it is.
