911 Truth Statement

Respected Leaders and Families Launch 9/11 Truth Statement
Demanding Deeper Investigation into the Events of 9/11

NEW YORK CITY, NY (Oct. 26, 2004) – An alliance of 100
prominent Americans and 40 family members of those killed on
9/11 today announced the release of the 911 Truth Statement, a
call for immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests
high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed
the September 11th attacks to occur. The Statement supports an
August 31st Zogby poll that found nearly 50% of New Yorkers
believe the government had foreknowledge and "consciously
failed to act," with 66% wanting a new 9/11 investigation.

Focusing on twelve questions, the Statement highlights areas
of incriminating evidence that were either inadequately
explored or ignored by the Kean Commission, ranging from
insider trading and hijacker funding to foreign government
forewarnings and inactive defenses around the Pentagon. The
Statement asks for four actions: an immediate investigation by
New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, Congressional
hearings, media analysis, and the formation of a truly
independent citizens-based inquiry.

The Statement's list of signatories includes notables spanning
the political spectrum, from Presidential candidates Ralph
Nader, Michael Badnarik, and David Cobb to Catherine Austin
Fitts, a member of the first Bush administration, as well as
Washington veterans like Pentagon whistleblower Daniel
Ellsberg and retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern. Other signers
range from peace activists like Code Pink president Jodie
Evans and Global Exchange's Kevin Danaher to former US
Ambassador and Chief of Mission to Iraq, Edward L. Peck; from
environmentalists like Randy Hayes and John Robbins to
business leaders such as Paul Hawken and Karl Schwartz, CEO of
Patmos Nanotechnologies; from populist journalist Ronnie
Dugger to renowned investigative reporter Kelly Patricia

The Statement also includes 43 noted authors, including New
York Times #1 bestseller John Gray, as well as 18 eminent
professors, historians, and theologians. Other notables
include five-term Georgia Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney,
singers Michelle Shocked and Michael Franti, and actors Ed
Asner and Mimi Kennedy.

The Statement was facilitated by, a leading
coalition. The organization has also announced a press
conference outside of Eliot Spitzer's Manhattan office (corner
of Cedar and Nassau) at 2:00PM on Thursday, Oct. 28th where
9/11 family members and victim group representatives will file
a formal complaint demanding the first criminal investigation
of 9/11 events by the New York Attorney General.

The Statement

We Want Real Answers About 9/11

On August 31, 2004, Zogby International, the official North
American political polling agency for Reuters, released a poll
that found nearly half (49.3%) of New York City residents and
41% of those in New York state believe US leaders had
foreknowledge of impending 9/11 attacks and "consciously
failed" to act. Of the New York City residents, 66% called for
a new probe of unanswered questions by Congress or the New
York Attorney General.

In connection with this news, we have assembled 100 notable
Americans and 40 family members of those who died to sign this
9/11 Statement, which calls for immediate public attention to
unanswered questions that suggest that people within the
current administration may indeed have deliberately allowed
9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.

We want truthful answers to questions such as:

1.      Why were standard operating procedures for dealing with
hijacked airliners not followed that day?

2.      Why were the extensive missile batteries and air defenses
reportedly deployed around the Pentagon not activated during
the attack?

3.      Why did the Secret Service allow Bush to complete his
elementary school visit, apparently unconcerned about his
safety or that of the schoolchildren?

4.      Why hasn't a single person been fired, penalized, or
reprimanded for the gross incompetence we witnessed that day?

5.      Why haven't authorities in the U.S. and abroad published
the results of multiple investigations into trading that
strongly suggested foreknowledge of specific details of the
9/11 attacks, resulting in tens of millions of dollars of
traceable gains?

6.      Why has Sibel Edmonds, a former FBI translator who claims
to have knowledge of advance warnings, been publicly silenced
with a gag order requested by Attorney General Ashcroft and
granted by a Bush-appointed judge?

7.      How could Flight 77, which reportedly hit the Pentagon,
have flown back towards Washington D.C. for 40 minutes without
being detected by the FAA's radar or the even superior radar
possessed by the US military?

8.      How were the FBI and CIA able to release the names and
photos of the alleged hijackers within hours, as well as to
visit houses, restaurants, and flight schools they were known
to frequent?

9.      What happened to the over 20 documented warnings given our
government by 14 foreign intelligence agencies or heads of

10.     Why did the Bush administration cover up the fact that
the head of the Pakistani intelligence agency was in
Washington the week of 9/11 and reportedly had $100,000 wired
to Mohamed Atta, considered the ringleader of the hijackers?

11.     Why did the 911 Commission fail to address most of the
questions posed by the families of the victims, in addition to
almost all of the questions posed here?

12.     Why was Philip Zelikow chosen to be the Executive
Director of the ostensibly independent 911 Commission although
he had co-authored a book with Condoleezza Rice?

Those who are demanding deeper inquiry now number in the
hundreds of thousands, including a former member of the first
Bush administration, a retired Air Force colonel, a European
parliamentarian, families of the victims, highly respected
authors, investigative journalists, peace and justice leaders,
former Pentagon staff, and the National Green Party.

As Americans of conscience, we ask for four things:

1.      An immediate investigation by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer
2.      Immediate investigation in Congressional Hearings.
3.      Media attention to scrutinize and investigate the evidence.
4.      The formation of a truly independent citizens-based inquiry.

Given the importance of the coming election, we feel it is
imperative that these questions be addressed publicly,
honestly, and rigorously so that Americans may exercise their
democratic rights with full awareness.

In closing, we pray and hope for the strength to approach this
subject with wisdom and compassion so that we may heal from
the wounds inflicted on that terrible day.
