Spitzer On the Spot
March 23, 2006
by Les Jamieson
9/11 Truth activists have been showing up in Eliot Spitzer’s path lately. On
Sunday, March 11th, three activists attended a swanky public reception for Eliot
Spitzer and supporters of his candidacy for governor. Sander Hicks, author of
The Big Wedding and a candidate for US Senate, Green party of New York, stood up and popped the question “Mr. Spitzer,
why have you not opened an independent investigation into the events of September
11, 2001?” Many clueless Dems in the crowd got very agitated, but Sander
persisted. Spitzer got off the hook by saying Sander should respect the crowd’s
wishes and told him to call his office. He did and as of today calls were never
What’s the real issue here? In November of 2004, an independent inquiry into
the events of 9/11 entitled “Citizens’
Complaint & Petition” was submitted to Eliot Spitzer’s office. This
document contained great detail about the glaring questions still unanswered
and listed damages suffered by so many people. There were 100 signatures from
prominent Americans such as Howard Zinn, Daniel Ellsberg, Ralph Nader, John
Gray, Ray McGovern, Medea Benjamin, and Ed Asner. The Complaint also had 48
victims’ families as signatories. Spitzer’s top prosecutor, William Casey, personally
document. However, this has been met with a deafening silence. No action was
How could it be that Spitzer, who has won accolades for his successful legal
actions against Wall St. financial institutions engaging in fraud, has acted
to suppress information that would reveal what happened on 9/11 rather than
bringing the full power of his office to investigate and expose every detail
leading to the truth of what happened that horrific day? By what authority does
he stand in the way of justice for 9/11? Why has he been silent about the removal
of the steel debris, a crime committed when clean up crews were ordered to dispose
of the evidence that should have been forensically tested for every possible
cause that could have led to the collapse of the buildings. Why hasn’t he investigated
Larry Silverstein for the purpose of uncovering what had to amount to insurance
To call attention to these issues, 35 activists gathered in front of Spitzer’s
office with banners and signs for a public speakout to bring attention to his
negligence and obstruction of justice. Thousands of passers-by saw us and over
a thousand received literature, many of whom gave the thumbs up and thanked
us for being there.
We made such a scene that a representative from his office who was watching
our action must have arranged to have us come into the building to hear our
concerns. Then Casey himself appeared. We resubmitted the Complaint to Mr. Casey.
However, this time we
demanded that it be reviewed and given a docket number so that further action
could be taken. Mr. Casey was non-committal and would only receive it from us.
We also delivered an indictment drafted by attorney Carl Person, Green Party
candidate for NY Attorney General. Casey couldn’t wait to leave our presence.
Later in the afternoon we moved a few blocks down to Wall St. where we were
joined by Attorney Phil Berg, author of a RICO lawsuit on behalf of 9/11 survivor
Willie Rodriguez. We passed out a special flyer with details on the suspicious
put options which indicated foreknowledge of the attacks from high placed sources
and the fact that the trail was inadequately investigated.
Will New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer heed New Yorkers’ call for truth
of the events of 9/11? Will any politician answer the call to truth and justice
for the crimes of 9/11? Only if we continue to do our part, and that we must.

Spitzer Protest a Success
by Sander Hicks
About 30 dedicated people yesterday braved the cold and protested outside
Attorney General Elior Spitzer’s office in downtown New York. WOR Radio covered
it, and there was a photographer from one of the syndicates.
We were protesting his interference in the Able Danger hearings on Capitol
Hill, and Spitzer’s dereliction of duty in not investigating 9/11 overall.
The highlight for us, yesterday, was walking into 120 Broadway, and meeting
with three of Spitzer’s top investigators. They accepted a copy of my book,
The Big Wedding, David Ray Griffin’s New Pearl Harbor, and a formal Citizen’s Complaint for failure to investigate 9/11, and a “Citizens’
Indictment” which our attorney, Carl Person, had drafted. We asked them
to give these materials a docket number, and not lose them, like last time.
We acted with professionalism and respect; now let’s see if that is reciprocated.
That night, actor Charlie Sheen’s recent comments were featured in a break-through interview on CNN Headline
News! Pretty stunning. The tide is turning.

STATE OF NEW YORK
THE COURT OF OUTRAGED CITIZENS
OUTRAGED CITIZENS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK
ELIOT SPITZER, NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL AND CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK.
INDICTMENT AND PRE-IMPEACHMENT
A JURY OF OUTRAGED CITIZENS IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK STATE, by this People’s
Indictment, accuses New York Attorney General ELIOT SPITZER of willful failure
to perform his duty, as Attorney General of New York, to assist Congress in
its investigation of events leading up to the events on September 11, 2001 (commonly
referred to as “9/ll”), specifically by permitting his high-level
aide, Dietrich Snell, formerly an investigator with the initial 9/11 investigation,
not to appear and testify before a Congressional committee investigating what
is called the Able Danger activities prior to 9/11 which was tasked with identifying
terrorists and disseminating its findings to various law-enforcement agencies
The greatest impact of 9/11 was in New York, New York, and the Congressional
investigation to determine what Able Danger learned before 9/11 and what it
did with the information it uncovered is vitally important to New York, New
York particularly because 9/11 was the second such attack by terrorists on World
Trade Center buildings with more attacks being threatened or possible.
Attorney General Spitzer’s failure to cooperate with the investigation
is a complete abdication of his responsibility as chief law enforcement officer
of New York State. Not only has Attorney General Spitzer failed to investigate
any aspect of 9/11 himself (such as the cause of destruction of 7 WTC, which
looks to most people as a destruction through pre-planned controlled demolition
techniques), but he has now prevented Congress from investigating a critical
aspect of the pre-9/11 activities, involving a sophisticated, extensive computer
program and databases that enabled the federal government to identify terrorists
or potential terrorists, and what Able Danger did with the information it created
Such failure by Attorney General Spitzer requires that he resign from his
position as New York Attorney General and permit his successor to do what Attorney
General Eliot Spitzer should have done concerning 9/11, including a complete
investigation of the activities that took place on New York soil, at the World
Trade Center complex on 9/11.
PLEASE BE ADVISED, THAT FAILURE TO REMOVE YOURSELF FROM OFFICE IS GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT BY APPROPRIATE AUTHORITY, INCLUDING REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PEOPLE
OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.
as representatives of the People of the State of New York outraged by the failure
of Attorney General Spitzer to cooperate with a Congressional investigation
of pre-9/11 activities of Able Danger investigating and reporting on actual
or potential terrorists; and to conduct any investigation himself.
