    Default change.org | Petitioning the US Attorney General: Lawyers Committee for 911 Inquiry

    “9/11 was a milestone in the history of governmental fake news and fake science.”

    There is natural skepticism that any action attempted to be taken is more than likely to reach a dead-end, but, that should not preclude some attempt – some effort – be made to bring somebody to account; we can try and support in any way we can those bold enough to have started this initiative. As I say it may yield nothing, but, out of respect for all those who have been directly affected by personal loss as a result of this atrocity and in pursuit of the higher truth ideal, I think it important to give it at least some consideration. With, at the very least that in mind, I have chosen to sign this.

    I am reminded of the enormous effort and bravery of Jim Garrison to hold someone to account for the JFK assassination, and at some personal cost along the way. We may never have seen the (heavily doctored) Zapruder film, either, without his efforts.

    If, like me, any of you feel similarly motivated then here is a link to it, and the petition narrative, (yes, it is long but necessarily so) below. Thank you for your time.

    Support Legal Action on 9/11--At Last!

    We, the undersigned, call upon the Attorney General of the United States to convene a Special Grand Jury to conduct a comprehensive  investigation of all aspects of the events of September 11, 2001, to review evidence of criminal conduct, to prosecute anyone for whom probable cause is found,  and to allow public interest law firms and other interested parties such as the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry to participate as intervenors in the process of discovery and presentation of evidence.   


    9/11 was the most consequential event of our time, with global repercussions almost too far reaching to comprehend.  9/11 has been used as the justification for invasions of countries throughout the Middle East and Afghanistan. These invasions have resulted in catastrophic destabilization of entire regions and cultures including the worst refugee crisis since WWII. [1]

    The 9/11 Commission investigation reluctantly agreed to by the Bush Administration in 2001-2 has been challenged by many independent investigators, and severely criticized by its chairmen, its staff, and the family members who lobbied for it.  In the meantime, a vast expansion of governmental powers and war-making activity around the world has relied upon that investigation to catapult us into a “Post-Constitutional Era” of American history. 

    Although fifteen years have passed, the whitewash of 9/11 is very much with us today.  In ways that look very much like destabilization projects our government has carried out in other nations like Vietnam, Nicaragua, and Iraq[2], the press and other civil institutions appear to have been subtly corrupted into remaining silent in the face of obvious questions.  

    Professional associations have stifled discussion of basic questions about the collapse of the World Trade Center raised by distinguished members. 

    Academic journals rejected articles and threatened dissenters[3]. 

    Building codes were left unrevised after three high-rise steel structures collapsed, for the first time in history, all on the same day—one without having been hit by a plane. 

    Military officials responsible for protecting the nation against terrorist hijackings were promoted, not disciplined for their failures.[4]

    Prior and subsequent intelligence links to Al Qaeda went unpublicized[5].

    9/11 was a milestone in the history of governmental fake news and fake science.

    The public was indoctrinated to shun skeptics of the official narrative; news commentators who repeated false intelligence about 9/11, WMD in Iraq and Al Qaida/Saddam links have retained their pre-eminence.  When political currents brought the opposition into power, allegations of torture, war crimes, and illegal surveillance by the outgoing administration, done in the name of the War on Terror and 9/11, went uninvestigated or unprosecuted. 

    With public outcry muted by the media, the government has proceeded to spend $2 trillion[6] to avenge the presumed acts of nineteen terrorists; and the American death toll resulting from 9/11 increased by 4,488 in Iraq and 2,350 in Afghanistan (52,318 wounded).[7] 

    The suppression of questions about the official version of 9/11 has deepened mistrust and contributed to today’s political instability.  A cleansing investigation of possible wrongdoing, going far beyond where the 9/11 Commission was allowed to go, is more necessary than ever if America is ever to regain not only its moral compass and self-respect, but also its institutional capacity for democratic governance.

    The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry is a newly –formed tax-exempt nonprofit public interest law firm, currently raising funds to support a program of investigation, litigation and advocacy for an independent investigation of 9/11.  It seeks to bring before judicial scrutiny the best scientific evidence regarding 9/11, its origins, and its effects, most if not all of which has never been examined by a court, largely because of waivers of rights signed by families who received indemnity payments from the government.  It co-sponsored the 2016 “Justice In Focus” Symposium in New York City, at which a panel of distinguished attorneys led by noted public interest litigator Daniel Sheehan heard testimony from architects, engineers, and first responders on matters contradicting the official version of 9/11.   

    Please take time to listen to the presentations at www.justiceinfocus.org 

    The Committee has developed a number of legal strategies in pursuit of 9/11 accountability, which it will implement as resources are developed to do so.

    The Committee’s Director of Litigation wrote a legal brief which was distributed to key Congressional representatives and helped them obtain the release of the much-discussed 28 Pages of a redacted 9/11 report.  More recently, it has won an unprecedented ruling by a federal judge that may permit limited discovery—the taking of depositions by certain federal officials who have withheld documents from Freedom of Information Act release.   

    Such depositions may generate important new evidence to submit to a Grand Jury.

    The Justice in Focus panels provided convincing evidence to challenge the official version that planes alone, without pre-placed explosives, destroyed World Trade Center Towers 1, 2, and 7. 

    The Lawyers’ Committee intends to bring such civil actions if the government’s response to this petition is unsatisfactory.  The Committee intends to continue cooperating closely with other respected 9/11 advocacy organizations, such as Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and the 9/11 Truth Action Project. 

    The veil of secrecy that has been placed over the events of 9/11 cannot be justified in a free society.  If we allow it to remain in place, and succumb to the blandishments of those who would take our freedom in the name of protecting us, we may soon end up neither safe nor free.

    An update on the Lawyer's Committee progress follows: https://www.change.org/p/support-leg...d=7259882&jb=2

    3 Sep 2017 — As the Lawyers Committee prepares a major announcement regarding new legal action, it's a good time to be reminded of why the Committee was formed in the first place. One year later, the Committee has a full-time Executive Director, and has begun to implement its litigation strategy while reaching out for community support.

    Here's a further update from the Lawyers Committee received this morning. Thanks to all those who still do care.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Stay tuned for important news from the Lawyers Committee!

    Lawyers' Committee for 9-11 Inquiry, Inc.

    3 APR 2018 — For the past several months, the Board of the Lawyers Committee has been hard at work preparing a groundbreaking legal and evidentiary submission to the U. S. Department of Justice, requesting the appointment of a grand jury. A formal announcement is planned this month. As signers of this petition, you will be among the first to receive it, along with selected media.

    During these months, several other important actions under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) have also been before governmental agencies, but have not been adjudicated.

    As virtually all of the Committee's time has been expended on these matters, we have not had the resources we might have liked to devote to public relations. But through various networks, the word has been getting out that at long last, legal avenues are being pursued in this important area. Although our Change.org fundraiser has not been very effective, supporters have also contributed directly through the Lawyers Committee website, and we assure all contributors that your gifts have been important in sustaining our efforts so far. Be on the alert for our next update! If you would like to express your support, go to our website at www.lcfor911.org and if you would like to be involved in a growing grassroots movement aimed at the connection between 9/11 and other contemporary events, volunteer for the 9/11 Truth Action Project at www.911tap.org

    Lawyers To Petition DoJ Demanding 9/11 Grand Jury Investigation of WTCs 1, 2 and 7


    I understand that this will be submitted today which would be a landmark moment.

    Unfortunately I can't remove the ad-blocker to be able to read Andrew Kreig's article here at OpedNews - maybe one of you will be able to access it and possibly share the full text on this thread.

    Anyway, some progress being made, and kudos for all efforts made so far here.

    Edit - added DOJ petition link

    Here is the full petition dated April 10, 2018

    Another update from the Committee received today.

    Petition Filed in New York
    Lawyers' Committee for 9-11 Inquiry, Inc.

    13 APR 2018 — In a press conference boycotted by the mainstream media despite widespread distribution of a press release, attorneys Julio Gomez and David Meiswinkle challenge the Justice Department to follow the law and present evidence of a crime to a Grand Jury. Robert McIlvaine, whose son lost his life at the World Trade Center, also spoke.
