Another great article by Kevin Ryan.

We allowed criminals to investigate themselves. Sad but true.

I didn't know about Donald Evans, but I'm not surprised at all. Just another detail of a cover up...
White House insider Philip Zelikow was put in charge of the 9/11 Commission, and NIST was reporting to an old friend of G.W. Why would anybody take NIST and the Commission reports seriously?


Although the Commission addressed the World Trade Center (WTC) in a brief, superficial manner, the detailed explanation for what happened to the Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 was left to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). At the time, this agency reported through the U.S. Department of Commerce under the direction of Bush’s old friend and oil industry colleague, Donald Evans.




Is it possible to propose a compelling alternative conspiracy based on the involvement of insiders? Could certain corporations, government representatives, and other covert operatives have been involved? Requirements for such an alternative conspiracy to be compelling would include that it address more of the evidence and answer more of the questions about what happened, while not overly complicating the conspiracy.


This is a good question Kevin Ryan is asking.

Is it possible?

A conspiracy within a conspiracy?

You know what you find when you scoop off the first layer in a septic tank? more poo!

There comes a point when you have to admit to yourself that all these players in all these mini conspiracies used to create this overall 911 conspiracy couldn't hide it this well for this long.

There is still no proof just speculation.

I absolutely believe that big corporations could have been in on it, yes. As a matter of fact, that is who i think had a big hand to play.

I suggest everyone watch a show called 'Jericho', it is about terrorist nuclear attacks that are found out to be tied to a corporate entity, wont give too much of the story away but its very good and filled with hints (at least to me). Corporations are psychopathic, and they would indeed attack to gain more control. There are corporations that have their own private armies, with no allegiance to any flag.

And they will use them.

I don't think anyone is denying that the system of power especially in the US is fundamentally broken. I certainly wouldn't argue that, so if that's what your analogy is supposed to mean (it's stretched already lol) then I am not going to disagree.

After you have contacted ALL of the above mentioned porfessionals, perhaps you can call everyone of their team members as well. You can ask them if there was a cover up within NIST.

A disgruntled & embarrassed UL terminated employee, Kevin Ryan needs to keep 9/11 Denial going. Selling snake oil is all he's got!

Man you're funny..

Just to confirm my homework assignment.

You want me to call all these people to ask them if the were covering up that they had to report to a old friend of the President of the United States, the same President who tried very hard to prevent an investigation of the mass murder of thousands of innocent people ?

Is that what you want me to do?

Thank you. I'm here all week!


Just to confirm my homework assignment.

First of all - to be clear: I am not talking about the 9/11 Commission Report. I listed many (not all) key team members that were involved with the NIST investigation.


Is that what you want me to do?


Seriously, I think you have a pretty good head on your shoulders. (for a truther)
What I'm asking, is that you look at the list I presented and ask yourself. "Is it possible?"

In part.. your question was:


....and NIST was reporting to an old friend of G.W. Why would anybody take NIST and the Commission reports seriously?


I take the NIST reports seriously. The more pertinent question is... Why don't you? I read the reports...and admittedly did not understand a large amount of it. I contacted a couple structural engineers I knew and asked them many questions. Did I then understand all of it? Hello no. What I do know; is that with the highest of confidence, the explanation in the reports that lead to the collapses are the best hypothesis there is. They were completed with sound science. They are not reckless hacks like Kevin Ryan and Steven Jones.


A disgruntled & embarrassed UL terminated employee???

Why does he need to keep 9/11 Denial going? And denial of what?


Yes, Kevin Ryan was fired from his water testing position at UL... in part:

in 2003, Ryan told people at UL about the usual tinhat conspiracy
theories;

- UL did not act upon his woo in the manner that Ryan wanted them to;

- so Ryan wrote to NIST to repeat the tinhat conspiracy theories,
and to accuse NIST of doing a crappy job in its investigation and
report, to accuse NIST of failing to "identify the truth about what
really happened", and suggesting that "criminal elements within the
U.S. government" may have planted explosives in the buildings, etc.;

- Ryan admits that he sent the letter from UL, using UL email address,
using his UL title, but says that he was stating his own opinion,
not UL's, and says that UL allowed him to use UL email for personal
email, and that the email program "automatically added the UL title
of Mr. Ryan to his email";

- Ryan also wrote to some tinhat troofer organization and they posted
his letter on the internet;

- UL fired Ryan as a result, saying that it was because he misrepresented
UL by writing as though it was UL's opinion and not his personal opinion;

Ryan filed a couple lawsuits, with them all being dismissed.

Let's not forget in his own recent words:


Today, we don’t have an alternative to the official conspiracy that spells out how the events of 9/11 are explained as a result of a conspiracy among insiders.


- Kevin Ryan

Max, please allow me to add to this. As I was reading this mess from Ryan (I had to recheck the date as his rant took me back to 2006) I was planning on going over each item here...but due to the lack of time and the weather in the 70's here near the ocean...Im going outside before the T-storms hit.

So:


When the political pressure caused by the victim’s families grew too great, the 9/11 Commission was born. But the Commission was given less than one tenth of the funding that had been allotted to investigate the sexual exploits of President Clinton just three years earlier. Clearly, the U.S. government did not want an in-depth investigation into 9/11.


This paragraph is misleading. True, the family members had to push to get the idiot to the Commission put together. Yes, the funding was dismal at the onset. But to suggest the Report Budget was 1/10th of the funding for Clintons BJ's is a lie. Ryan clearly used the entire whitewater investigation in on this claim.

archive.gao.gov... (BJ funding)

The Commission’s total budget was $15 million.
govinfo.library.unt.edu...

The fact is, FBI agents and support staff had spent almost 4 million hours on the 9/11 investigation by June of 2002. This is by far, the largest and most expensive criminal investigation in the history of the United States.

Why don't I take it seriously? Answer is very simple....

They would not release any report without the White House approval. The Commission was controlled by “Rice's intellectual soul mate” Philip D. Zelikow

Philip D. Zelikow, 52, holds the unassuming title of "counselor," but in many ways he is Rice's intellectual soul mate, and he plays a critical role in formulating policy at the State Department.


And anything NIST were doing had to go through Donald L. Evans who has been a steadfast friend to George W. Bush.

He was there, in the cockpit, on the Sunday afternoon in the mid-1970's when George W. Bush last took a plane into the air, steered a wobbly and uncertain course over Midland, Tex., nearly bungled the landing and seemed to realize that his high-flying days were forever past.


He was there, too, on the morning in the mid-1980's when Mr. Bush woke up with a hangover and a pang of regret and decided never to touch alcohol again.


On the night before the Iowa caucuses in late January, he distracted Mr. Bush with fine cigars and idle banter. And a week later, as the first exit polls from New Hampshire were about to come in, he and his wife were the only ones other than the Texas governor's immediate family who sat with him in his hotel suite, helping him relax.


Donald L. Evans, it seems, has almost always been present at the pivotal junctures in Mr. Bush's life, an important witness to the evolution of both the man and the candidate and an integral part of his political campaigns, especially the current one.



U.S. Department of Commerce
Donald L. Evans, Secretary


Why would Zelikow or Evans release anything that would hurt their friends?

Maybe you should read up on how Zelikow had to approve every little thing that was going into the final report. And none of the Commission staff liked it, but accepted it anyway.

I didn't know about Donald Evans relationship with the President until today, But I do know how Zelikow manipulated the Commission. You see these people have zero credibility as far as I'm concerned, they lie about almost everything they do. Bush had something to hide, I see no reason why NIST wouldn't be manipulated by the White House just like the 9/11 Commission was. (I say this as my opinion only)

Groups call for the resignation of Sept. 11 commission director

The 9-11 Family Steering Committee and 9-11 Citizens Watch, two separate groups, are demanding the resignation of Philip Zelikow, executive director of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, after information surfaced over the weekend that he participated in Bush administration briefings prior to Sept. 11 on the threat al Qaeda posed to the country. "We believe that the very integrity of the commission is at stake here, and that he should resign immediately," Kyle Hence, co-founder of Citizens Watch, said Monday. On Saturday, the Family Steering Committee wrote a letter to the commission arguing that Zelikow has a conflict of interest because he could potentially be held culpable for failing to heed warnings about al Qaeda prior to Sept. 11. "It is clear that [Zelikow] should never have been permitted to be a member of the commission, since it is the mandate of the commission to identify the source of failures," the committee wrote. "It is now apparent why there has been so little effort to assign individual culpability. We now can see that trail would lead directly to the staff director himself.

The only factual theory is my signature...


Are you saying that what ever destroyed the towers had to be stronger than steel/concrete and weighed more than 200,000 tons ?

Do you have any idea what this thing could be ? Was it hidden behind a hologram ?
