NIST's Draft Report on the Twin Towers

Accessing NIST's Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers (DRAFT)

In June of 2005 NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), as part of its investigation of the collapses of the World Trade Center towers published a draft of its final report on the collapses of the Twin Towers. This report is the subject of the essay Building a Better Mirage: NIST's 3-Year $20,000,000 Cover-Up of the Crime of the Century .

When Version 0.98 of Building a Better Mirage was first published on August 21, 2005, it linked directly to the PDF of NIST's draft report at the URL:

http://www.nist.gov/pubs/NISTNCSTAR1Draft.pdf

Some time shortly after that, NIST's website was changed to redirect that URL to: http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/pubs.htm

which does not directly link to the draft report. The report is linked to on the page:

http://www.nist.gov/pubs/reports_june05.htm

However, this URL also redirects to the URL:

http://www.nist.gov/public_affairs/pubs.htm
( Archive.org Nov. 5 mirror )

Some time between late August and early October of 2005, NIST changed its website to render obsolete URLs of its then-recently-released Draft Report with redirects to a page not listing the report.

The Draft Report is still available from Archive.org's Sept. 21 mirror. Locate "Full report" under "Draft summary report" in the list of "Key News and Updates".

This Text of NIST's Draft Report is an easily searchable HTML document. The PDF of NIST's Final Report is locked, preventing extraction of the text.
