Dear World Legislators, Parliamentarians, and World Citizens,
We have watched with alarm that the sad and tragic events of 9-11 (11 September, 2001) have resulted in two wars and a global rollback in civil liberties. Iraq had nothing to do with the 9-11 attacks, yet it has been attacked in the name of them. People in countries worldwide have suffered reduced civil liberties in the name of 9-11, and intelligence surveillance of ordinary citizens has expanded dramatically.
I submit to you that before any more wars are launched or liberties are lost in the name of the “war on terror” launched by the Bush Administration after 9-11, a full international inquiry into the events leading up to and on 9-11 be held, which includes 9-11 victims’ family members from the U.S. and other nations.
The National Green Party of the United States has requested an open independent 9-11 investigation that would involve 9-11 victims’ family members. This is a good start, but it must also be an international inquiry in addition that includes 9-11 family members from nations worldwide who lost loved ones in the 9-11 attacks.
We need this to occur because many, including the 9-11 Family Steering Committee (U.S.), are growing increasingly frustrated with the stunning lack of hard questions for witnesses appearing before the 9-11 Commission. Until these hard questions are asked and fully answered, we should refuse more wars, and renounce reduced liberty worldwide in the name of 9-11 and it’s resultant war on terror.
A few of these questions are:
1) Who made the insider stock trades against United and American Airlines the day before the attacks? And why did the head of AB Brown Trust (an institution once headed by the current Executive Director of the CIA, Buzzy Krongard), where $5 million of those stock “winnings” were made, quietly resign on 11, Sept., 2001, and why is $2.5 million of that winning still unclaimed?
2) Why were there no fighter interceptor jets dispatched on 9-11 until it was too late on 9-11, after 4 commercial jets flew hijacked for an hour and a half, ending with the last one crashing into the worlds’ most highly protected building, the Pentagon?
3) Why did the CIA Station Chief in Dubai meet with Bin Laden weeks before 9-11 at a U.S. Army Hospital? Why did the Pakistani Intelligence Chief, who was in Washington on 9-11 meeting with top Bush officials, wire lead hijacker, Mohammed Atta $100,000 weeks before the 9-11 attacks?
These are but a few questions needing answers. (Read “The New Pearl Harbor” by David Ray Griffin to further explore the disturbing unanswered questions of 9-11.)
I implore legislators, parliamentarians, and citizens worldwide to become involved in the global 9-11 Truth Movement by signing up at www.911Visibility.org and www.911Truth.org. These organizations have worked with 9-11 family members, and citizens worldwide to lobby government, media, and the 9-11 Commission to demand truth, and to hold public actions to educate the world about the apparent 9-11 cover up.
