All Presidential Candidates, Except Bush and Kerry, Join Call for 9-11 Truth
Respected Leaders and Families Launch 911 Truth Statement Demanding Deeper Investigation into the Events of 9/11
NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) - An alliance of 100 prominent Americans
and 40 family members of those killed on 9/11 today announced the release
of the 911 Truth Statement, a call for immediate inquiry into evidence
that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately
allowed the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an
August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers believe the
government had foreknowledge and "consciously failed to act," with 66%
wanting a new 9/11 investigation.
Focusing on twelve questions, the Statement highlights areas of
incriminating evidence that were either inadequately explored or ignored
by the Kean Commission, ranging from insider trading and hijacker funding
to foreign government forewarnings and inactive defenses around the
Pentagon. The Statement asks for four actions: an immediate investigation
by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Congressional hearings, media
analysis, and the formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry.
The Statement's list of signatories includes notables spanning the
political spectrum, from Presidential candidates Ralph Nader (Independent), Michael Badnarik (Libertarian), and David Cobb (Green), to Catherine Austin Fitts, a member of the first
Bush administration, as well as Washington veterans like Pentagon
whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg and retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Other
signers range from peace activists like Code Pink president Jodie Evans
and Global Exchange's Kevin Danaher to former US Ambassador and Chief of
Mission to Iraq, Edward L. Peck; from environmentalists like Randy Hayes
and John Robbins to business leaders such as Paul Hawken and Karl
Schwartz, CEO of Patmos Nanotechnologies; from populist journalist Ronnie
Dugger to renowned investigative reporter Kelly Patricia O'Meara.
The Statement also includes 43 noted authors, including New York Times #1
bestseller John Gray, as well as 18 eminent professors, historians, and
theologians. Other notables include five-term Georgia Congresswoman
Cynthia McKinney, singers Michelle Shocked and Michael Franti, and actors
Ed Asner and Mimi Kennedy.
The Statement was facilitated by 911Truth.Org, a leading coalition. The
organization has also announced a press conference outside of Eliot
Spitzer's office in Manhattan, at the corner of Cedar and Nassau streets, at 2:00 PM on
Thursday, Oct. 28th. At this press conference, 9/11 family members and victim group
representatives will file a formal complaint demanding the first criminal
investigation of 9/11 events by the New York Attorney General.
