Authors Richard Johns and Tony Szamboti battled for more than a decade to have their paper published in the ASCE’s Journal of Engineering Mechanics.
Their paper was a direct response to and critique of an earlier paper the journal had published on the Twin Towers’ destruction. Nevertheless, the editors — both of whom had major conflicts of interest in relation to the paper being critiqued — rejected Johns and Szamboti’s paper as “out of scope.”
Finally, nearly five years after Johns and Szamboti filed an ethics complaint against the journal’s editors, the ASCE’s Executive Committee last week voted unanimously to dismiss their complaint.
Tune in tomorrow at 7:00 PM EDT for a live group interview with Johns, Szamboti, and four others involved in the complaint, and learn about this epic story of massive corruption in service of the 9/11 cover-up. The interview will be conducted by longtime 9/11 activist Fran Shure.
We will do more reporting on this story in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, we invite you to read the statement that Johns, Szamboti, and ten ASCE members submitted to the ASCE Executive Committee prior to the hearing.
Be prepared for your jaw to drop when you see how obviously and egregiously the journal editors violated the ASCE Code of Ethics and how decision-makers at ASCE refused to hold them accountable every step of the way — thus preventing Johns and Szamboti’s paper from finally being published.
