Welcome!  We’re glad that you’ve chosen to visit NIST Errors.com.

The purpose of this website is two-fold:

1. If you are seeking a place to expose NIST fraud, waste and abuse, particularly in regards to NIST’s World Trade Center reports on Buildings 1, 2, or 7, you’ve come to the right place. 

2. If you are a NIST employee or member of the general public, this site provides information on the scientific errors that were made in NIST’s Final Report on the Collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 released in 2008.

Information on Whistleblowing

On July 8, 2016, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed S.Res.522 designating July 30, 2016 as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day. 

The resolution encourages all federal agencies to inform "employees, contractors working on behalf of United States taxpayers, and members of the public about the legal rights of citizens of the United States to 'blow the whistle' by honest and good faith reporting of misconduct, fraud, misdemeanors, or other crimes to the appropriate authorities."  The resolution also acknowledges the contributions whistleblowers have made, at their own personal risk, "combating waste, fraud, abuse."

The designation of July 30th was to commemorate legislation passed by the Continental Congress on that date in 1778, which stated that government employees have a duty to report misconduct, fraud and other crimes in government to the appropriate authorities in a timely manner.

If you have information concerning general NIST fraud, waste and abuse, please contact the National Whistleblower Center and see their tab: Submit Confidential Report.

If you have information concerning NIST’s World Trade Center reports on WTC1, 2 or 7, please contact whistleblower attorney Mick Harrison below.

Mick Harrison, Esq.
520 South Walnut Street, #1143
Bloomington, IN 47402

Mr. Harrison has 25 years of experience as a public interest litigator, first for the Government Accountability Project and more recently on his own as a private attorney, focusing on whistleblower cases.  (See full resume for Attorney Mick Harrison).  One of Mr. Harrison's most recent whistleblower case victories was against the U.S. EPA on behalf of senior EPA scientist Dr. Cate Jenkins, a case Mr. Harrison litigated successfully with co-counsel from the non-profit organization Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility based in Washington, D.C.. 

DISCLAIMER: Attorney Harrison is not the sponsor of this site but has agreed to receive initial contacts from any NIST employee who wishes to make a whistleblower disclosure, needs advice, or desires legal representation for a federal whistleblower case.  Any initial contacts from NIST employees will be used to permit Mr. Harrison to confidentially evaluate the employee’s claim or case. It is not a commitment to provide legal representation. Any information you submit to Attorney Harrison will be treated as attorney-client privileged even if Attorney Harrison does not decide to take your case. An agreement to provide an initial consultation is not an agreement to represent you. Should Attorney Harrison or another law firm agree to represent you, then a written representation agreement (contract) would be entered into with you setting forth the scope and terms of the legal representation.


Information on Scientific Errors made by NIST in its Final Report

on the Collapse of the World Trade Center Towers

In his book, The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report about 9/11 is Unscientific and False, Dr. David Ray Griffin asserts that NIST violated the following scientific principles in its investigation. Specifically, NIST:

*Began with the most unlikely hypothesis.
*Ignored extraordinarily strong and relevant physical evidence.
*Drew conclusions that violated fundamental laws of physics.
*Allowed extra-scientific considerations to determine its conclusions.
*Created alternative arguments not supported by the scientific facts (“straw-man arguments”).
*Did not invite peer review by the scientific community prior to publishing its conclusions.
*Has not made its data available to other researchers.
