The NIST Investigation

National Institute for Standards and Technology Encounters Resistance, Pretends to Investigate

NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) is a non-regulatory federal agency within the U.S. Commerce Department's Technology Administration. In NIST's May 7, 2003 News Release on the progress of its investigation, there is clear evidence that the agency has been hampered in its investigation by a lack of access to evidence.

NIST's investigation, which began long after the evidence at Ground Zero had been recycled, was funded with a budget of $30 million. This contrasts with the $600,000 allocated by FEMA to fund the only investigation of the building collapses that functioned before the site had been mopped up. It is apparent from reading NIST's website that its investigation is being conducted strictly within the confines of the premise of the official story -- that the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 resulted from the jetliner impacts. A presentation about NIST's response to the disaster claims there is a "critical and urgent national need" to "establish the probable technical causes of the collapses and derive lessions to be learned", but neither this presentation nor any other materials on the site even mention the possibility that the collapses were caused by controlled demolition. 1
