Confirmation? We Don't Need No Stinking Confirmation!
Waterboy Kevin Ryan posts the good news that somebody else wants to test the dust samples to confirm or refute the possibility that they contain traces of thermite. The bad news? The Troofers don't want to cooperate.
I wrote back to the sampler and suggested to him that Corley could probably obtain his own WTC dust samples. After all, Corley had supposedly waded through WTC dust for months. Why was he asking for our samples?
The rest of the article is revealing for its paranoia. I laughed a couple of months ago when I noted that the French scientist who supposedly confirmed the thermite results turned out to: a) not have confirmed the results and b) opined that perhaps his samples were "deactivated". Turns out Ryan is just as suspicious:
Immediately after the article was published, it appeared that a response might be forthcoming due to inexplicable damage to several packages sent, via the US Postal Service, between some of the investigators who were involved. When my colleague Steven Jones sent a sample of the red-gray chips to my post office box in late April 2009, the samples had been removed from the double envelope package through a series of slits just barely big enough to slide the small vial out. The postal inspector never responded to my complaint. But when I later mailed something to my colleague James Gourley, the envelope arrived with a corner ripped out, in a gross kind of damage that neither of us had ever seen.
Professor Jones chimes in in the comments:
Excellent sleuthing work, Kevin --
as usual. I deeply appreciate your insights through the years.
You have identified one of the main insiders, IMO.
So in other words, they are not going to allow independent confirmation of their results. This is not the scientific method as I understand it.
We'll see if this flies with the "responsible wing" of the Truth Movement.
