The editor in chief of the journal where recently the paper: "Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe" was published, resigned, claiming she wasn't informed of the publication. She proceeds to provide not a single solid scientific rebuttal, only administrative bickering and personal political bias against, well.. inconvenient science. One particularly notable comment attributed to Ms. Pileni is this one: "Marie-Paule Pileni points out that because the topic lies outside her field of expertise, she cannot judge whether the article in itself is good or bad.".

Strangely, her areas of research seem to contradict that. I'll quote you an excerpt of her resume:

1990-1992: Chairperson on workshops related to the French Defense research.
1989-1992: Consultant at the Minister of Recherche concerning the National Defense 1989: Member of the “Institut des Hautes Etudes de Défense Européenne”.
1987-1988: Member of the ’“Institut des Hautes Etudes de Défense Nationale” (IHEDN)1984-1986: Member of National exam in Chemistry

2006: Accounts of Chemical Research, American Chemical Society.
Journal of experimental nanosciences, Publisher Taylor&Francis.
2002: Journal of Physical Chemistry, Board member, American Chemical Society.

1990-1994: Société Nationale des Poudres et Explosifs, SNPE, France (Literally translated: National Society of Powders and Explosives)

2001: Laboratoire des matériaux mésoscopiques et nanomètriques, LM2N.
1992-2000: Structure et réactivité des systèmes interfaciaux, SRI. (Literally translated: Structure and reactivity of interfacial systems)

Interesting. Firm ties with the French/European military industrial complex. Experience with explosives and nanotechnology. It's reasonable to assume Ms. Pileni is familiar with nano-explosives. So Ms. Pileni's contention that "the topic lies outside my field of expertise" is false. Why would a nanotechnology expert and former consultant for the SNPE not want to comment on a paper discussing nano-thermitic explosives? A paper which caused her to resign? Puzzling.

I know why!! Because the US Govt blew the towers th S"£t themselves, and she's been silenced!!! It's the only reason which makes any sense!!!!!!!!

Elsewhere in Super-Dreamy-Pumpkin Land today, the Dwark King Wenlestras and his Elven minions were sentenced to death after Elvis was found tied and gagged in the dungeons of Castle Birkendorf.

All I see is editorial, consulting and managerial experience.

In my eyes that's like saying a hospital administrator doesn't know how to perform heart surgery. Well chances are unless he's a heart surgeon he doesn't.

So unless she worked as a laboratory research scientist in explosives, she probably doesn't have a clue what potential is held behind thermite or what to look for indicating the presence of it especially the so called nano-thermite or whatever they call it. If she did proclaim to have knowledge of it and the process she would be slaughtered in the media.

This is the perfect example of 'go with the flow' .

Does one dare to fight the flow?

If you get caught in the wrong direction of the flow , the current shall turn you around..

That is if you are not larger than the flow itself.

its a 'good find' relative to 'just another nail in the coffin' but honestly doesn't really expose or prove anything. As I mention in every thermite thread, only evidence that it either is or is not thermite is important.

@ darth, uhhh what do you mean all you see is ...'consulting'... experience? When you are a consultant, someone with less knowledge on a subject asks YOU...

1990-1994: Société Nationale des Poudres et Explosifs, SNPE, France (Literally translated: National Society of Powders and Explosives)

interesting to say the least.
