Sept. 2: Formal Letter to KC Area Structural Engineers, Physicists, and Political Science Professors

A Formal Invitation Challenge to KC Area Structural Engineers, Physicists, and Political Science Professors:

As America approaches the fifth anniversary of the horrific September 11th attacks, the Kansas City area science,
engineering and political science communities have both a unique opportunity and a civic responsibility to
learn more about the final NIST Report on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers.

On September 2, Kansas City's Uptown Theater will be presenting Science Applied to the WTC Collapses by
independent research scientist Jim Hoffman. This event will examine the official explanations of the collapses
of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and Building 7, with special attention to the NIST Final Report on
the collapses of the World Trade Center Towers. It will then examine the physical characteristics of the buildings'
destruction, and will evaluate the demolition hypothesis using inductive and deductive methods.

Jim Hoffman is a research scientist, mathematician, software engineer, author and inventor. Hoffman has developed
new algorithms and applications in computational geometry used in both pure mathematics and polymer chemistry.
His work in applying scientific visualization to minimal surface geometry was instrumental in the discovery of the
first new examples of complete, finite, embedded minimal surfaces in over two hundred years. Working with a team
of polymer scientists at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology, Hoffman discovered new three-dimensional
morphologies for modeling block co-polymers, and co-authored papers in Science and Macromolecules. Hoffman
has also dabbled in combustion engineering, co-authoring a patent for an internal combustion engine with improved
thermal efficiency (US Patent #4,584,972). Hoffman has created computer simulations to facilitate the development
of this and other mechanical engineering inventions.

There appears to be significant dissent about specific aspects of the NIST Report within the Structural Engineering
Community itself. The NIST World Trade Center Investigation: How the Recommendations Çould Hurt Structural Engineering

First as American citizens, then as leaders within related scientific and political professions, this formal invitation
and challenge is a serious appeal to genuine patriotism, an appreciation of the history of the United States Constitution,
and of the sacrifices made by previous leaders to lead this great country through its most turbulent periods.

As many are painfully aware, despite the wishes of groups such as clergy and Peaceful Tomorrows, the official response
to "bin Laden's attacks" cast our nation into war, curtailed civil liberties, systematized racism towards Arabs and Muslims, and sent America spiraling into a permanent war economy.

Due to growing public awareness of a pattern of official deception, Americans are increasingly suspicious about
the official story of the 9/11 attacks. A recent Scripps Howard national poll concluded that one in three Americans
now suspect 9-11 government conspiracy. Jim Hoffman's work is cited repeatedly by respected 9/11 authors such as
Professor David Ray Griffin and physicist Steven E. Jones. Hoffman is referred to by many researchers as having
the most credible independent analysis of the WTC collapses. As evidence of massive growing public interest in
the scientific issues surrounding the events of 9-11, Hoffman's most popular website, 9-11 Research, is currently
averaging more than 14,000 daily visitors.

At the Science Applied to the WTC Collapses event, Hoffman's scientific and common sense approach will
largly be concentrated on the physical issues involved in the WTC towers' collapses. This formal invitation and
challenge to Science Applied to the WTC Collapses is an opportunity to publicly debate or ask specific
questions of Mr. Hoffman directly.

There are currently two radio shows lined up with Mr. Hoffman, and other interviews are being scheduled.
Additionally, due to the educational national importance of the subject matter, I will suggest that there is
a civic responsibility to invite young people, student groups or community citizen's group to see this debate.

Our goal is for all Kansas Citian's to attend this event. As the anniversary of the horrific September 11th attacks draws
near, it is our belief that no matter individuals' differing and diverse opinions, a speaker who presents independent
and credible analysis related to the deaths of 2,980 of our fellow American citizens is a a rarity worthy of serious attention.

A slide presentation will examine the official explanation of the collapses of the World Trade Center Twin Towers
and Building 7, with special attention to NIST's recent report. It will then examine the physical characteristics of
the buildings' destruction, and will evaluate the demolition hypothesis using inductive and deductive methods.
There will be a moderated Q&A session.

Jim Hoffman's Examination of the NIST Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team
on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers:
NIST's 3-Year $20,000,000 Cover-Up of the Crime of the Century

Hoffman quotes on the NIST Report:
"On June 23, 2005 the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) published the draft of its
'Final Report of the National Construction Safety Team on the Collapses of the World Trade Center Towers',
and in September it released its Final Report). This Report and a separate one on the case of WTC 7 represent
the culmination of NIST's three-year investigation of the collapses of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers,
funded with an initial budget of $16 million and subsequent appropriations from taxpayers' money."

"NIST's investigation is often cited as proving the official theory that the plane crashes and fires caused the collapses.
Yet the Report does not explain why or how the buildings totally collapsed, despite the lack of a single historical
precedent for a steel-framed skyscraper totally collapsing for any reason other than controlled demolition."

"The Report mentions "progressive collapse" 16 times, mostly in sections describing recommendations.
It defines progressive collapse as when "a building or portion of a building collapses due to disproportionate
spread of an initial local failure" but does not mention how rare the phenomenon is or that there are no examples
of total progressive collapse of steel-framed buildings outside of 9/11/01."

On the rooftop rescue issue:
"Apparently, any structural component estimated to have been damaged to any degree was removed from the model --
as if it contributed nothing to the structure. In other words, if NIST's crash simulation predicted that a column had
lost 10% of its load-bearing capacity, it was treated as if it had lost 100% of its capacity."

Hoffman on the NIST Report lack of sourcing:
"The Report does not contain footnotes. It is filled with claims, the basis for which the reader can only guess.
It leaves the public with no way to compare its conclusions with the evidence on which it was purportedly based."

"Assuming the premise of the official explanation, the total collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7
were the largest, most unexpected, and least understood failures of engineered steel structures in the history
of the world. NIST's Report, like FEMA's 2002 report, presents the appearance of explaining the collapses
of the Twin Towers, but in reality it doesn't explain them at all. Flatly asserting that "global collapse"
inevitably follows "collapse initiation," the Report implies that the only issue worthy of study is how the
jet impacts and fires led to collapse initiation -- an issue to which it devotes well over one hundred pages.
Thus, the Report makes two fundamental claims, the first explicit and the second implicit:
* The impact damage and fires caused the tops of the Towers to lean and then begin to fall (collapse initiation).
* Once initiated, the collapses proceeded to total collapses.
