David L. Griscom, PhD – Research physicist, retired in 2001 from
Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, DC, after 33 years service.
Fellow of the American Physical Society. Fulbright-García Robles Fellow at
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in Mexico City (1997). Visiting
professorships of research at the Universities of Paris and Saint-Etienne,
France, and Tokyo Institute of Technology (2000 - 2003). Adjunct Professor
of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Arizona (2004 - 2005).
Winner of the 1993 N. F. Mott Award sponsored by the Journal of
Non-Crystalline Solids, the 1995 Otto Schott Award offered by the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung
(Germany), a 1996 Outstanding Graduate School Alumnus Award at Brown
University, and the 1997 Sigma Xi Pure Science Award at NRL. Principal
author of 109 of his 185 published works, a body of work which is highly
cited by his peers. Officially credited with largest number of papers (5)
by any author on list of 100 most cited articles authored at NRL between
1973 and 1988.
- Personal blog 2/9/07: "David
Ray Griffin has web-published a splendid, highly footnoted account of
Destruction of the World Trade Center: Why the Official Account Cannot Be
True: This scholarly work, rich in eyewitness accounts, includes
11 separate pieces of evidence that the World Trade Center towers 1, 2
[each 1300+ feet tall, 110 stories]
were brought down by explosives. [Editor's note: WTC
Building 7 was 610 feet tall, 47 stories. It would have been the tallest
building in 33 states. Although it was not hit by an airplane, it
completely collapsed into a pile of rubble in less than 7 seconds at 5:20
p.m. on 9/11, seven hours after the collapses of the Twin Towers.
However, no mention of its collapse appears in the 9/11 Commission's
"full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September
11, 2001 terrorist attacks." Watch the collapse video
Finally, on 11/20/08, more than seven years after 9/11, the Federal
government published its
final report on the collapse of WTC 7, which "found that the fires on
multiple floors in WTC 7, which were uncontrolled but otherwise similar to
fires experienced in other tall buildings, caused an extraordinary event."
Despite the absence of any visible fire at the time of collapse, the
government report alleges WTC Building 7 is the first and only
steel-framed high-rise building in the history of mankind to collapse
simply as the result of a fire.]
... I implore my fellow physicists and engineers who may have the
time, expertise, and (ideally) supercomputer access to get to work on the
physics of the World Trade Center collapses and publish their findings in
refereed journals like, say, the Journal of Applied Physics.
The issue of knowing who was really behind the 9/11 attacks is of
paramount importance to the future of our country, because the "official"
assumption that it was the work of 19 Arab amateurs (1) does not match the
available facts and (2) has led directly to the deplorable Patriot Act,
the illegal Iraq war, NSA spying on ordinary Americans, repudiation of the
Geneva Conventions, and the repeal of habeas corpus (a fundamental point
of law that has been with us since the signing of the Magna Carta in
Surely these Orwellian consequences of public ignorance constitute
more than sufficient motivation for any patriotic American physicist or
engineer to join the search for 9/11 Truth!"
