On August 21, 2008, the National Institute of Standards and Technology released its draft report purporting to explain the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7) on 9/11. NIST allowed the public to submit comments on this draft report within three weeks of its release. The International Center for 9/11 Studies collaborated with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, and other scientists and engineers to submit 26 pages of comments
to NIST within the three week deadline.
Freedom of Information
The Center is actively engaged in promoting the release of evidence held by NIST and other federal agencies in the hope of enlarging the body of evidence available to the public and to scientific researchers. It collaborated with Dr. Steven Jones to obtain the release of important data from the United States Geological Survey. It has also pressed Freedom of Information requests with NIST, and was forced to file a lawsuit against NIST in May 2009 in an attempt to obtain the release of all photographs and video footage collected or analyzed by NIST during its investigation. The Center believes the scientific community is entitled to all of the information and evidence that is or has been made available to or considered by all government agencies involved in any investigation of the events of 9/11.
The Center has posted several videos received from NIST on its YouTube page
The Center is posting all of the materials received from NIST at 911datasets.org
Funding Scientific Research
The Center has funded a number of specific research projects, including laboratory analysis of data obtained under FOIA, and chemical analysis of World Trade Center debris.
