9/11 Press for Truth Campaign, August, 2007


Rep. Dennis Kucinich has announced that he will hold Congressional committee hearings into specific aspects of 9/11, beginning in September. A new campaign aims to press the entire Congress to support Kucinich's investigations and, in fact, fully investigate the events of 9/11. During the first week of August, house parties will be held to introduce a broader audience to these questions, through the movie, "9/11 Press for Truth." And the accompanying campaign will put a copy of "9/11 Press for Truth," the Family Steering Committee Review of 9/11 Commission Report (http://www.911truth.org/images/resources/Family%20Steering%20Cmte%20review%20of%20Report.pd f), and a personal letter, into the hands of every member of Congress.A number of national groups have now embraced this campaign, as our years of persistent collaborative efforts begin to show their positive effect! DownsizeDC.org (http://www.downsizedc.org/) has this campaign front and center on their main page. And Progressive Democrats of America have blogged about the campaign at “Answers For 9/11 Families” week (http://blog.pdamerica.org/?p=1167).— Ed.

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 (http://911pressfortruth.com/#). 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 (http://www.911truth.org/images/resources/Family%20Steering%20Cmte%20review%20of%20Report.pd f) 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 (http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=2007040683039464) 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 (http://action.downsizedc.org/wyc.php?cid=74)" to your Congressman and sign up today to host or attend a 9/11 Press For Truth house party (http://pressfortruth.bravenewtheaters.com/) 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. They all lied." With an election year looming, it is more important than ever that we demand Congressional hearings that will finally provide the answers these families have devoted over five years of their lives toward.

Help make it happen. Send a "Press For Truth Pack" to your Congressman today (http://action.downsizedc.org/wyc.php?cid=74).

And we hope you'll join us in August. Open your house to family, friends and neighbors - or join them at a house party nearby -- to watch this movie and support the Kucinich subcommittee investigation until all remaining Family Steering Committee questions are answered.

Thank you so much for you support.

Kucinich Statement to Congress about 9/11:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUD4MG7kw44 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUD4MG7kw44%3E)

I want to call to the attention of the House the juxtaposition of two news stories. One [..] relating to 9/11. It says 'Federal officials where repeatedly warned in the months before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks that Osama bin Laden and Al-Queda were planning aircraft hijacking suicide attempts according to a new report that the Bush administration had been repressing'. And this from the front page of the Washington Post, 'a newly leaked video recording the high level government deliberation the day before Katrina hit shows disaster officials infatically warning President bush that the storm posed a catastrophic threat to new Orleans and the gulf coast, and a grim faced bush personally assuring state leaders that his administration was fully prepared [..] to help'.

Do we see a pattern here? 9-11? Katrina? They knew something was going to happen and they didn't act. They knew that if they went into Iraq that we were looking at a disaster, that there was no way we were going to be able to run that country. They know that global climate change poses a threat to the entire planet, nothing is being done, a pattern of recklessness, indifference, callousness. The implications are deadly for the people of the United States. (more...)
