Without explanation, NIST statements & reports ignore and/or contradict:
d) Indications of extremely high temperatures in FEMA & USGS reports.
e) Scores of reports of explosions in oral histories of first responders.
NIST’s neglect of the very important data source of these oral histories is shocking and incomprehensible. Equally stunning is NIST’s conclusion that evidence for explosions was not found, a claim it defended later on the absurd and otherworldly justification that it did not look for that evidence.
This is nothing other than the “logic of the ostrich” that refuses reality by shading its view.
