Kevin Ryan, outspoken 9/11 investigator formerly with Underwriters Laboratories (UL), has launched a website to announce his recently filed lawsuit against UL for wrongful termination. Many of you will remember the courageous stance taken by Kevin in November, 2004, when he first publicly questioned NIST in his letter to Frank Gayle, who headed the “NIST and the World Trade Center” project, UL Executive Speaks out on NIST Study, in which he stated, “The buildings should have easily withstood the thermal stress caused by pools of burning jet fuel.” Kevin was promptly fired by UL (Letter from UL and our response is here).
In keeping with Kevin’s indomitable spirit of courage and persistence, this was followed with a brilliant statement of the central challenges we face as individuals and a nation in the wake of 9/11 fraud, “A Personal Decision.” Since then, Kevin has spoken at numerous conferences and given presentations across the US since that time.
Kevin has now launched a website relating to his wrongful termination lawsuit at www.ultruth.com/. Please support him as much as you are able, in holding this tax-exempt public safety-testing organization, UL, accountable.
Message from Kevin:
By all accounts, the unprecedented events of September 11th, 2001 “changed everything”. It is therefore critical that conscientious Americans, as well as all good people around the world, understand these events in detail. Unfortunately the official reports, including The 9/11 Commission Report and the NIST WTC Report, written by those working under the direction of the Bush Administration, fall far short of providing the explanations needed.
Both the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and my former employer, Underwriters Laboratories (UL), seem to have taken the stance that the public does not have a right to know what fire resistance tests were performed on the steel component assemblies used to build the World Trade Center (WTC) towers. But since NIST’s latest story for collapse of the WTC towers depends on the fire-induced failure of these steel components, there is little information that could be more important at this time.
When I worked there, top management at UL made clear to me that UL performed these required tests. They have since stated that there is “no evidence” that any firm tested the steel. Being tax-exempt, due to their status as a public safety-testing organization, UL should be held accountable for being honest and open with the public about the history of their testing.
To help ensure this accountability, I’ve filed a lawsuit against UL for wrongful termination. My attorneys and I hope to gain more information about UL’s role in the testing of the WTC steel assemblies, and any other involvement UL has had with the WTC towers or the NIST investigation. Since this lawsuit represents a critical need for information about public safety, we invite the public to contribute to our legal defense fund.
Thanks for your help. Kevin Ryan
