Family Steering Committee

2 of 2 1 2

9/11 Press for Truth Campaign, August, 2007

From August 3rd – 12th, 911truth.org will join a coalition of organizations
to help host “Answers For 9/11 Families” week. Hundreds
of Americans will come together at house parties across the country to screen
the acclaimed film featuring the September 11th families, 9/11 Press For
Truth
.

This stunning movie exposes the government’s and the media’s failure to answer
the many important questions of the 9/11 Family Steering Committee, a group
of twelve victim’s relatives who tenaciously fought the White House to force
the creation of the 9/11 Commission. Six of them tell their story first-hand
in the movie, revealing for the first time that “70% of our questions”
were not answered
by the Final Report. The movie stitches together rare overlooked
news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences to clearly detail
a pattern of deception by U.S. officials.

Now, Congressman Dennis Kucinich
has announced plans
for a new 9/11 investigation beginning in September
because “the 9/11 Commission… never resolved some conflicting facts.”
Recently, Please join the effort to encourage Congress to support investigations
until all remaining Family Steering Committee questions are answered.
Send a “Press
For Truth Pack
” to your Congressman and sign up today to host
or attend a 9/11 Press For Truth house party
in your community.

(NOTE: Simple instructions on how to make your house party film screening a
success will be emailed to everyone who signs up to host a party. Please order
your DVD immediately after signing up in order to ensure it arrives in time
for your house party.)

“We thought the country was at risk from terrorists and from incompetence,”
says Jersey widow Lorie Van Auken in the movie, “and maybe worse.”
Fellow ‘Jersey Girl’ Patty Casazza puts it more succinctly: “They lied.…

’411 on 911′: Palo Alto, CA National Day of Truth Action Event

PaloAlto411

While the morning rain and the threat of afternoon rain prevented “Annie and the Vets” from providing music at the 4/11/2007 Impeach Bush/Cheney rally, a substantial crowd gathered in the last-minute sunshine on Lytton Plaza in downtown Palo Alto, amidst a giant replica of the flawed 9/11 Commission Report, two smoking towers labeled Constitution and Bill of Rights, many colorful banners calling for impeachment, and a huge “Deception Dollar” banner.

The first marches demanding a Congressional Investigation into 9/11 were held in Palo Alto in January 2002, followed by further marches in January of 2003 demanding “Pre-Emptive Impeachment.” Marches for impeachment are now a monthly occurrence and converged yesterday with a monthly 9/11 Truth action. The rally began with a bit of history and Congresswoman Eshoo’s response to the previous rally on March 14th. Eshoo wrote:

“I’ve lived through an impeachment process and witnessed firsthand how it tears the country apart. The election in November was a resounding rejection of the President’s policies and the policies of his party. I think it’s time to bring the country together and move forward. In my view, impeachment will heavily distract from the important work of reversing the disastrous course this Administration has set and will virtually bring to a halt progress on important issues including healthcare and global warming.”

The primary organizer of the rally, Carol Brouillet, read her response to Eshoo:

There is a tremendous difference between the charges leveled against Bill Clinton and those that are being directed towards Bush… Continue reading

9/11 Widows Keep on Asking the Tough Questions

by Joseph Murtagh

February 12, 2007 — When it comes to 9/11, America right now is divided between two camps, those who trust the official account of the attacks, and those who, well, have questions. It’s occasionally the case that the first camp will publicly denounce the second camp as a bunch of nutcases, and when this happens, it’s usually the rowdier section of Camp Two, the Loose Change , bullhorn-wielding, “death to the New World Order” crowd, that takes the most heat.

What tends to get ignored, however, is the quieter section of Camp Two, and especially a group of widowed mothers from New Jersey and New York who over the last six years have worked harder than just about anyone to protect the country from terrorism. Few people realize that had it not been for the tireless efforts of the “Jersey girls” — Mindy Kleinberg, Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Patty Casazza, and Monica Gabrielle — not only would the 9/11 Commission never have happened, but there most likely never would have been any investigation into what was the worst loss of life on American soil since the Civil War. No inquiry into our failed military defenses, or the collapse of the towers, or just why it was that President Bush sat in that Florida classroom for a full seven minutes after the second plane struck. No scientific reports, no effort to discover what went wrong, no hearings of any kind. No attempt to figure out the details… Continue reading

Condi’s 9/11 Foreknowledge Denial Follies

Rice Loyalist Headed 9/11 Commission Probes

by 9.11 Blogger
WNY Media Network

Bob Woodward’s State of Denial provides evidence of the politicization of the 9/11 Commission’s investigative process, conclusions, and certain omissions from its report, as well as then national security advisor Condoleezza Rice’s likely role in burying unflattering, damning evidence through the appointment of Bush/Rice loyalist Philip Zelikow as the Commissions’ chief investigator and Zelikow’s reward (perhaps) of a top senior-level position in the State Department, which Rice now heads. First, some background.

One of the burning questions in newspapers, cable TV news, and blogs is why the 9/11 Commission report did not mention the July 10, 2001 meeting called by then-CIA Director George J. Tenet and his counterterrorism chief, J. Cofer Black, with then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice. Tenet and Black hoped to impress on Rice the compelling need to act immediately against bin Laden because there was “a huge volume of data” suggesting strongly that a major attack was imminent.

“But both men came away from the meeting feeling that Ms. Rice had not taken the warnings seriously,” writes Woodward.

The July 10 meeting between Tenet, Black and Rice went unmentioned in the various reports of investigations into the Sept. 11 attacks, but it stood out in the minds of Tenet and Black as the starkest warning they had given the White House on bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Though the investigators had access to all the paperwork on the meeting, Black felt there were things the commissions wanted to know about and things they didn’t want to know about.…

Introducing “Politics 911″

Fine Motives, Means & Opportunities

To commemorate the great 9/11 Commission cover-up released on July 22, 2004, 9/11truth.org and MUJCA-Net are proud to announce the launch of “Politics 911″ — a focused 4-month campaign to enlighten the 2006 electoral debate with a nationwide spotlight on 9/11 truth.

As the name implies “Politics 911″ is an emergency campaign to help return democratic control, self-respect and political adulthood to the American electorate. To that end we plan to gratefully exploit:

 

  • the rising tide of 9/11 skepticism;
  • the dispersion & diversity of local 9/11 activist groups;
  • the organizing & communicative genius of the Internet;
    and
  • the political theater of the 2006 elections

in order to saturate pre-election events with substantive 9/11 truth questions and their implications for revolutionary reform.

Course of Action

The campaign’s initial goal is to require every candidate running for the US House or Senate in 2006 to publicly declare whether he/she will support a truly independent re-investigation* of the events surrounding 9/11 including evidence of US government foreknowledge, facilitation and/or complicity. This will be accomplished and augmented with the following steps:

  1. Develop a Roster of all Senate and Congressional candidates from all parties;
  2. Poll Each and Every Candidate (locally and personally, when possible) regarding their awareness of/interest in 9/11 issues, and their support for a new and truly independent investigation.* This includes all independents and third party challengers from the Greens, Libertarians, Reform Party,… Continue reading

Release of New Pentagon Video Clears Up Nothing, Unfortunately

May 16, 2006

911Truth.org Steering Committee

911Truth.org is disappointed that the Pentagon has released another video which
does not clearly show a Boeing hitting the Pentagon. Despite the hyping of this
release as offering ‘definitive proof’, we are surprised that this inconclusive
video remained hidden to the American people for nearly five years.

Recall that www.Flight77.info documents two years of FOIA requests for 85
videotapes in the possession of the FBI that pertain to the Pentagon
strike. The site’s proprietor, like the steering committee of 9/11truth.org,
is hopeful that a release of this footage will show definitively that a plane
hit the Pentagon so that distracting speculation about the Pentagon attack can
cease. But today’s video does nothing of the sort.

If the Pentagon and the Bush administration truly sought to offer clear evidence
for the official story of the Pentagon strike, why would they choose to release
images that resemble the previously released stills rather than the footage
from the Sheraton, the Citgo gas station, or the Virginia D.O.T that presumably
would show the events more clearly?

We will continue to relentlessly pursue a full investigation of the events surrounding
9/11 and seek justice for the victims, as clearly defined in our mission statement.

The 9/11 families were told by the 9/11 Commission that the Family Steering Committee’s questions would be used as a roadmap for the Commission, and that
their questions would be answered in the final report. Yet upon publication
of the final report, it became clear… Continue reading

Sept. 11 Widows Demand Answers

Sept. 11 Widows Demand Answers

By Annie Reuter/Senior Writer

The Daily Targum

(Rutgers Student Newspaper)

Published: 4/12/06

Nearly five years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, many families continue
to wonder what happened to loved ones who died.

Mindy Kleinberg and Lori van Auken are two such people.

The pair said the attacks of Sept. 11, made them widows.

They spoke to journalism and media studies students Tuesday at the Scholarly
Communication Center of the Alexander Library on the College Avenue campus.

“Those words were very hard to utter. The first time I had to say those
words gave me the shakes,” van Auken said. “Before September 11 we
were typical suburban housewives. September 11, our whole world turned upside
down.”

These two women have not stopped in their pursuit to find the truth about their
husbands, who were killed in the attack, while also wondering how safe America
is.

Kleinberg, van Auken and two other Sept. 11 widows formed the Family Steering
Committee to put pressure on the federal government to force an investigation
of the unsolved murder of those involved in the attacks.

It all started when van Auken received the phone call from her husband after
the planes hit the World Trade Center to tell her he loved her and hopefully
would see her later that day.

“In his voice you could hear panic,” she said. “I couldn’t reach
him. From his message I knew he survived the impact of the plane [crash].”

Several media outlets… Continue reading

ABC News: “On Election Eve, Sept. 11 Doubters Surface”

The ABC News website has finally acknowledged the existence of alternative research and popular doubts about what really happened on September 11, how and why. We welcome this breakthrough.  

We are very pleased that the article by Dean Schabner, published today on the front page of the ABC News website, seems to have fairly quoted two persons among the many citizens pursuing alternative research and actions for justice and full disclosure around 9/11. 

We hope that ABC News will follow up with televised broadcasts on this subject, and give a fair hearing to all points of view. 

Even as we thank ABC News, we must unfortunately also note that its article adopts a dismissive tone toward doubts about September 11, in advance of full inquiry. The headline is mildly misleading; the unanswered questions about September 11 did not merely “surface” on the eve of Election Day, but have been the subject of untiring work by hundreds of researchers for more than three years and the subject of such best-selling books as The New Pearl Harbor by David Ray Griffin and the recent Crossing the Rubicon by Michael C. Ruppert. 

No basis whatsoever is given for the assessment of the ABC Polling Unit that the Zogby International survey of New York residents cited in the article (co-commissioned by 911Truth.org) is “not credible.” 

Using the same established methodologies as in other surveys regularly cited by ABC News and other major media, Zogby polled a representative sampling of 808 adult New York… Continue reading

The Terror Timeline
Year By Year, Day By Day, Minute By Minute

A Comprehensive Chronicle of the Road to 9/11–and America’s Response

by Paul Thompson

Reviews of the book

“THE TERROR TIMELINE is a tremendous resource that will give readers a truly independent means of judging our government in its errant conduct of the war on terror.”

– PETER LANCE, author of Cover Up and 1000 Years for Revenge

“A spectacular resource that is an essential tool for anyone who is truly interested in understanding the events leading up to 9/11.”

– CRAIG UNGER, author of the House of Bush, House of Saud

“This is the basic book on 9/11. Paul Thompson’s work tells what happened that day, tracing the events leading up to the attack, and what has transpired since. After years of self-serving reports by ineffectual politicians in Washington, there is at last an independent report, based entirely on publicly known facts, that is thorough and reliable. Read it and decide for yourself whether there was a cover-up. It is truly remarkable. Thank God there are people like Thompson.”

–JAMES RIDGEWAY, author of The March to War

“Paul Thompson’s Timeline has served as the definitive source for any researcher attempting to penetrate the mysteries of 9/11. This book [could] effect a major change in the course of U.S. history.”

– PETER DALE SCOTT, author of Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Columbia, and Indochina

“Paul Thompson’s exhaustive and richly detailed research has now provided the world with a veritable treasure trove of 9/11 information. If you want… Continue reading

Zogby Poll: 50% of NYC Says U.S. Government Knew

Editor’s Note:
New Zogby poll finds 50 percent of New York City residents and 41 percent of New York state overall think high officials knew about 9/11 in advance and “consciously” failed to take action…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, Monday, Aug. 30, 2004

Half of New Yorkers Believe U.S. Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9/11 Attacks and “Consciously Failed” To Act;

66% Call For New Probe of Unanswered Questions by Congress or New York’s Attorney General, New Zogby International Poll Reveals

(Utica, NY) – On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders “knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act,” according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.

(DOWNLOAD COMPLETE BREAKDOWN OF RESULTS)

The poll is the first of its kind conducted in America that surveys attitudes regarding US government complicity in the 9/11 tragedy. Despite the acute legal and political implications of this accusation, nearly 30% of registered Republicans and over 38% of those who described themselves as “very conservative” supported the claim.

The charge found very high support among adults under 30… Continue reading

Medea Benjamin, Co-founder, CodePink: Women for Peace and Global Exchange


Dear Peace & Justice Organizers,

There are many ways to promote peace & justice in our world, but when we face an immediate conflict, indeed a promised “war without end,” it first helps to step back and look at how it all began. Our current “War on (some) Terror” was birthed, if not conceived, on September 11, 2001. That day was a terrible funeral pyre for many, but a golden opportunity for some.

Only a year before, the Project for a New American Century, a think tank for the neocon crowd that now controls the White House and the Pentagon, published a martial wish list entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” Their report outlined our “urgent need” to inflate defense spending, control Mideast oil, deploy exotic new weapons, and reorganize our forces to fight and win several simultaneous wars. Their stated goal was full spectrum global dominance, a “Pax Americana,” but they grudged that such a transformation would take forever “absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor.”

Consider then all the ignored warnings, quashed investigations and missing air defenses that preceded 9/11 and gave them this golden opportunity. And post-9/11 consider Condi Rice’s chilling remarks: “Now, we have an opportunity and an obligation to move forward together. Bold and comprehensive changes are sometimes only possible in the wake of catastrophic events… Just as World War II led to a fundamental reorganization of our national defense structure, so has September 11th made possible sweeping changes in the ways we… Continue reading

The Condoleezza Rice-Philip Zelikow Connection: The Kean Commission and its Conflicts of Interest

MAY 16, 2004:

Condoleezza Rice is a household name. But most Americans still have never heard of the man who wrote a book with her, Philip Zelikow.

As the executive director of the Kean Commission, Zelikow is responsible for framing the agenda. He leads the research staff. He decides what evidence the commission sees.Image of Rice and Zelikow

In April, the world media focused on Rice’s appearance before the commission. She claimed, not for the first time, that no one could have imagined terrorists would use hijacked planes as weapons against buildings. This is a demonstrable falsehood, which Bush himself inadvertently exposed a week later. (See “Bush, Rice and the Genoa Warning”)

Rice’s testimony received mostly bad reviews. The commission was credited with investigative fervor. Few reports bothered to note that in the late 1980s, Rice and Zelikow worked closely together on George H.W. Bush’s national security staff.

Zelikow and Rice co-authored a 1999 book about their experiences in the first Bush White House, “Germany Unified and Europe Transformed: A Study in Statecraft.” The book presents “a detailed and fascinating account of behind-the-scenes discussions and deliberations” during the fall of the Soviet empire, according to Library Journal.

Zelikow again served alongside Rice as a member of the Bush transition team in 2000- 2001, when he took part in White House meetings on the terror threat. Since this was of interest to the 9/11 investigation, the Kean Commission recently called Zelikow as a witness, in a closed-door session.

Now imagine if the judge in a trial was a close associate of the star witness.…
