[Ed: Copy of letter dated July 20, 2009, responding to AIA President Marvin J. Malecha, FAIA, who turned down request from Richard Gage, AIA, to meet with the AIA Board while in Washington, D.C.]


Dear Mr. Malecha,

It is with great regret that I read in your letter the decline of our request to meet with you and the AIA Board. We wrote to you that we now have over 700 architects and engineers at AE911Truth calling for a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rises on 9/11. Now, as a result of our latest successful exhibit booth and class at the Washington DC conference last week we have over 45 AIA members signed on. At what point will you take us seriously? Perhaps when our rapidly growing numbers reach 1,000?

You note that "We believe that the NIST investigation and the resulting NIST report are valid and credible." But how can they possibly be valid and credible when:

1. NIST's November 2008 Final WTC 7 Investigative Report has many fatal flaws:

a. NIST is forced to acknowledge the free-fall collapse of Building 7 for 100 feet of its 6.5 second fall, only after being grilled publicly by experts who are petition signers of AE911Truth. Yet they do not acknowledge the obvious implications of such free-fall collapse – that the structure had to have been removed – forcibly – by explosives. (Anyone knows that a building cannot collapse at the rate of a freely falling object while simultaneously crushing 40,000 tons of structural steel – because all of it's gravitational potential energy has been converted to motion.)
