Group Files Appeal of NIST Rejection

Ninety-nine “requesters” want the National Institute of Standards and Technology to avoid a court suit by comprehensively revising its explanation for denying their “request for correction” of the 2008 NIST report on the collapse on Sept. 11, 2001, of World Trade Center Building 7, a skyscraper that was not struck by an airplane.

On Monday, Sept. 28, they filed an administrative appeal of the federal agency’s denial, claiming it to be “demonstrably in error” and unresponsive to most of the request’s data quality arguments.

A 2008 NIST report concluded that office fires brought down the 47-story Building 7.

The requesters are 10 family members of persons killed in the “9/11” attacks, 88 architects and structural engineers, and Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. They made their formal appeal in a 98-page letter to James K. Olthoff, associate director for laboratory programs for NIST.

In a news release, Ted Walter of AE911Truth said the appeal gives Olthoff “the final opportunity to restore NIST’s integrity and deliver some truth to families who lost loved ones on 9/11.

“If he doesn’t, NIST can expect we will take legal action.”

In it, the group contends that the report by NIST violates the agency’s own information quality standards under the Data Quality Act. The appeal asks NIST to perform new computer simulations to include a structural feature that NIST admits it excluded from the modeling used to determine the conclusion of its report.

Appeal Discussed in Interview

Two of the people who are appealing NIST’s denial of their “request for correction” spoke on Friday, Oct. 2, with Andy Steele, host of 9/11 Free Fall, on No Lies Radio.

They are Ted Walter, AE911Truth’s director of strategy and development, and Matt Campbell, a British national whose older brother, Geoff, was killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in the WTC’s North Tower.
