Citizens can choose to buy the official line on the events of Sept. 11, 2001 or they can ask questions about holes in that story as big as the crater at Ground Zero. This week, at the unlikeliest of locations, the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in west-end Toronto, the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 picks up where it left off in San Francisco in March.
Here, international authors, filmmakers, academics, military and intelligence experts as well as, yes, probably the occasional conspiracy theorist, are mixing it up with ordinary people who can’t accept that all the systems simply failed on one terrible and tragic morning.
They’re gathering to focus attention on why, still, nearly three years after two planes tore through the World Trade Center, one crashed into the Pentagon and a fourth into a Pennsylvania field, the White House still hasn’t produced a plausible explanation for why so much went so wrong all at once.
“To ask questions and to ask them fearlessly,” says Citizens’ Inquiry director Barrie Zwicker. “This is the heart of this.”
Indeed, a majority of Canadians doubt the line out of Washington. A poll conducted for the non-profit inquiry (http://www.911inquiry.org) this month shows that 63 per cent of us believe the U.S. government had “prior knowledge of the plans for the events of September 11th, and failed to take appropriate action to stop them.”
The White House still hasn’t produced a plausible explanation for why… Continue reading

Widow battling for 9/11 truth desperately needs your support!
An open letter from Ellen Mariani.
After five years of battling to find the truth of 9/11/2001, the day I lost
my husband Louis Neal Mariani on United Airlines Flight 175, I want to give
9-11 activists and 9-11 researchers an idea of what I’ve been through.
It includes emotional abuse, harassment, lawyers’ misguidance, and now
the prospect of financial ruin. Even more, there’s been a constant pressure
to give up the fight to expose the criminals involved in 9/11 and what they
did to our loved ones–and to the service men and women presently fighting
and dying in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.
It took me three months after 9/11 to gather my composure and face the fact
that I would never see my husband again. But on December 20th, I put together
and filed a wrongful death law suit against United Airlines. I was not suing
the government at that time. That idea originated with attorney Phil Berg.
Airlines get $10 billion in assistance
Unknown to many of us in late September 2001, the presidents of the American
Trial Lawyers Association from all over the country had already formed a group
to go to Washington DC to meet with our elected government officials to save
the airlines. With the help of lobbyists, these people presented a bill called
The Air Transportation Safety and Stabilization Act. On September 22, 2001,
President Bush signed it into law. The Act established an Air Transportation
Stabilization Board that could issue up to $10 billion in Federal credit.…
