New York Times Best Selling Author Steve Alten Endorses NYCCAN

As an author, I often write about good versus evil and the journey of the hero, who must reveal the truth against all odds in order to right a wrong. There is no doubt that a great evil was committed on September 11, 2001, but the entire truth has yet to be revealed. Why is the truth so important? Because the domino effect of 9/11 led to two wars that wiped out over a million innocent people who had nothing to do with September 11th, and there has yet to be a single firing or reprimand in regard to intelligence failures that allowed 3,000 Americans to be murdered.

Democracy is an illusion if the people refuse to make our leaders accountable. An open free society cannot exist in a vacuum controlled by the media. Real patriotism is not a noun, it is a verb.

Each of us has a choice: We can either shrug our shoulders and remain indifferent, or demand a real investigation. As a patriotic American, I fully support the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now, which has one simple yet important goal: the creation of an independent and impartial subpoena powered investigation into the September 11th attacks.

Be the hero of the story: Demand answers NOW so that we can prevent another 9/11 that could steal more of our loved ones.
