The Problem: Nowhere are the ills and grievances of our once democratic society so profoundly illustrated as in the refusal of governments to properly investigate the events of 9/11. This is especially egregious in the face of scientifically based evidence, some of it discovered in the rubble of Ground Zero, that profoundly challenges the official conspiracy theory concerning these events. September 11, 2001, stands as a pivotal moment in U.S. and world history. In the name of national security, it has triggered massive and unrelenting attacks on fundamental democratic freedoms in the United States such as the right to free speech and dissent, the right to privacy, freedom from illegal searches and seizures, and the basis for declaring war, including “pre-emptive” war in violation of international law.The events of September 11, 2001, have been the pretext for an ongoing “War on Terrorism,” an imperial, predetermined agenda for the purpose of gaining “full-spectrum dominance” (U.S. military control over land, sea, air, and space). The invasions of both Afghanistan and Iraq were planned prior to September 11, 2001, as resource wars for the benefit of the money cartel and its subsidiary corporations that have usurped the sovereignty of governments worldwide.
- No properly constituted government or judicial body has investigated, let alone determined responsibility, for the criminal acts of 9/11. It is therefore incumbent upon the people to demand a thorough, independent investigation and bring to justice those who perpetrated these acts of violence and criminal negligence.
- At the very least, the anomalies, contradictions and absurdities in the official (and widely discredited) 9/11 Commission Report must be exposed to a politically significant segment of the populace, until an honest, full-scale reinvestigation of 9/11 is undertaken. The scope of such an inquiry would consider, among other things, the possibility that “state crimes against democracy” were committed to frighten people into supporting two foreign wars and the broader “War on Terrorism.”
- Scores of organizations are calling for a new major international independent citizen investigation. These include Architects and Engineers for 9/11Truth, Firefighters for 911Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice, and www.PatriotsQuestion911.org. If the failure to investigate and prosecute the crimes of 9/11 persists, we call for the formation of a credible body, composed of legal experts, scientists, and other professional investigators with no ties to the compromised official bodies or government institutions, to convene a formal 9/11 tribunal, ideally on or around the 10th anniversary, or September 11, 2011, for the purpose of calling witnesses, presenting evidence, and delivering judgments.
- There cannot be peace without justice and there cannot be justice without truth. Truth, therefore, must be the top order of business for humankind even as humankind works locally and as communities for the betterment of all, and for the saving of the natural world upon which we rely for our very existence.
