This video is a work in progress. Thank you for the feedback.
NIST's WTC Investigation has produced an unsubstantiated report on the Twin Towers and WTC7. Thus, claims that they have produced accurate work are arguments based on the bare assertion fallacy. Since this cannot be considered scientific, appeals to NIST as the final judge of what is fact or not are appeals to unqualified authority, another fallacy. Meanwhile, both the media and the largely uninformed public fail to use the fallacies to think logically about the matter.
