9/11 Truth Legal Battle Shifts After Major Action.

By Jerry Alatalo

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry

Petition to U.S. Attorney to Report Federal Crimes to Grand Jury

he nonprofit public interest organization, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc. is filing a Petition with the U. S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York formally requesting, pursuant to federal statute, that he present to a special grand jury extensive evidence of thus-far unprosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) Towers on 9/11/01. The evidence presented in the Petition and the exhibits thereto is considered by the Lawyers’ Committee, after careful evaluation, to be conclusive.

In the Petition, the Lawyers’ Committee explains that the U. S. Attorney is legally required to present the evidence submitted to a grand jury. The 52-page Petition, accompanied by 57 exhibits, presents extensive scientific and eye-witness evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings on 9/11, including:

1) Independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries in the form of thermite or thermate.

2) Testimony of numerous New York firefighters who were 9/11 First Responders that they heard sounds of explosions and saw explosions on 9/11 at the WTC resembling controlled demolitions, and some reported seeing molten iron like in a foundry.

3) Testimony and scientific analysis by numerous architects, engineers, physicists, and chemists which demonstrates conclusively that the WTC Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were brought down by use of explosives and incendiaries, not by airplane impacts or the resulting jet fuel and building fires.

4) Expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts, and prior to the building collapses.

The Petition presents scientific reports and testimony explaining that the documented presence of molten iron proves that temperatures were present at Ground Zero much higher than those that jet fuel and building contents could create when burned, extreme temperatures consistent with use of the high tech explosive and incendiary materials called thermite and thermate.

The Petition also presents scientific reports and testimony explaining that the presence of previously molten iron microspheres, which have been established as present in the WTC dust in large quantities by electron microscope analysis of WTC dust samples, by both government and independent scientists, is scientifically impossible based on the burning of jet fuel and office contents alone but would be expected from the use of thermite or thermate.

Video evidence is also presented that shows the ejection during the collapse of WTC 1 and 2 of heavy steel elements laterally some distance from these WTC buildings which would not be possible from a gravity-driven collapse.

In addition, the Petition notes that scientific analysis, eyewitness testimony, and government reports confirm sulfidation and high temperature corrosion of the steel found in the rubble after the collapse of the WTC towers and WTC 7, a phenomenon not expected in a jet fuel fire and gravity driven collapse but consistent with the use of thermate.

The Petition cites longstanding federal court precedent that recognizes that a grand jury may act independently of any branch of government. The Petition adds that Federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 3332(a), requires the United States Attorney who receives information concerning an alleged federal crime from any person, if requested by that person, to provide that information to a special grand jury. The Petition emphasizes that this federal law creates a duty on the part of the United States Attorney, and removes the prosecutor’s discretion in deciding whether to present information to the grand jury.

The Petition cites the law that makes it a federal offense to bomb places of public use and government facilities. In the Petition, the Lawyers’ Committee concludes that the scientific, video, and eye-witness evidence taken together is conclusive that explosive and incendiary devices that had been pre-placed at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the World Trade Center Twin Towers on 9/11, substantially increasing the tragic loss of life from the terrorist attacks. The Lawyers’ Committee states unequivocally that the evidence permits no other conclusion — as a matter of science, as a matter of logic, and as a matter of law.

Pointing out that these crimes were not committed by a single person acting alone but rather by several persons acting in concert, the Petition urges that the attention of the jurors should not be limited simply to the bombing crime but should include a full inquiry into the crimes of aiding and abetting and conspiracy, and into those who may be guilty of these additional crimes, whether or not such parties are principals (direct perpetrators).

The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to promote transparency and accountability regarding 9/11. The Lawyers’ Committee’s work includes conducting investigations and public education in the public interest regarding matters related to the tragic events of September 11, 2001 and the circumstances leading up to and following those events. A primary focus of the Lawyers’ Committee is government accountability for the diligent investigation and prosecution of those responsible for the crimes related to 9/11 (whether those responsible are foreign or domestic individuals, corporations, or government entities).

End The 9/11 Nightmare.

By Jerry Alatalo

“But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth; if wrong, they lose what is always as great a benefit – the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.”

– JOHN STUART MILL (1806-1873) English political economist, philosopher

9/11-The Paradigm Of Endless War: William Pepper.

By Jerry Alatalo

ttorney William Pepper befriended Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) in the last year of King’s life (1967-1968). It was William Pepper’s emotionally disturbing Vietnam photographs and personal recollections while a journalist there, shared with Dr. King, which were the impetus for MLK’s choice to begin strongly opposing the Vietnam War.

Many years after the 1968 murder of Martin Luther King Jr., the King family asked William Pepper to lead a legal effort on their behalf focused on finally revealing the truth of how MLK died. After talking for three (3) hours in prison to the publicly perceived, alleged “lone shooter” James Earl Ray, Mr. Pepper agreed to help the King family. After talking to Ray, he became convinced James Earl Ray was innocent.

The ensuing civil trial took place in Memphis, Tennessee and included over 70 witnesses; the jury finalized the trial in 1999. After all the testimonies and legal arguments ended, the jury returned a judgment declaring MLK was killed as a result of a secret government/state-sponsored assassination conspiracy – as occurred on 9/11, an “inside job”. Martin Luther King Jr. died in 1968, killed by a group that organized their covert operation from inside the U.S. government.

The history books America’s grades K-12 students are reading today in 2017, eighteen years after the Memphis trial, still record James Earl Ray as the lone killer of Martin Luther King Jr.. An unacceptable and major historical error, misinforming millions of young people nationwide about real events, has been somehow ignored and perpetuated.

***

William Pepper served as one of the moderators during the September 2016 conference in New York City – “9/11 Justice in Focus”. During his short address to the participants and attendees he drew a parallel between his experience and the ongoing, difficult efforts to reach the truth about 9/11. The time between the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 and the Memphis civil trial in 1999 amounted to thirty-one (31) years, certainly a very long wait, but fortunately the truth was eventually uncovered.

The murder of MLK and the false flag terror events on 9/11 differ from the standpoint of time elapsed before truth finally becomes known. William Pepper didn’t begin the legal effort on behalf of the King family until the 1980-81 time frame, some 12-13 years after the crime. In the case of 9/11, in the first place the number of men and women who started looking into the events of that day were many, and so the push for truth was not dependent on one attorney. Second, in contrast to William Pepper’s experience, the investigative and research work began immediately, the next day on September 12, 2001.

Imagining a comparative mathematical analysis taking all contributing factors into consideration – number of people involved in investigations, total hours devoted to research, public awareness, etc. – leads one to understand the combined force or energy behind efforts to solve 9/11 add up to a vastly greater level than the power William Pepper had behind him and his associates. To put it another way, the challenges – in the form of those who planned and carried out the mass murder deception – presented to those determined to get to the truth about 9/11 are enormous and unprecedented, while at the same time moral force for justice has grown steadily, and become powerful enough now to decisively turn the tide.

William Pepper, his close friends and associates in the 9/11 Justice movement, and millions more everywhere on Earth are absolutely correct when stating 9/11 opened the way for “a paradigm of endless war”. The accuracy of the assertion has been proven repeatedly in the sixteen (16) years since September 11, 2001, continuously and unceasingly through wars and violence up until today.

Perhaps the time has come for something new on Earth: “a paradigm of endless peace” – and the manifested completion of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream.

A real investigation of 9/11 can place humanity on the truly blessed path of peace.

9/11 Justice Movement Now Unstoppable.

By Jerry Alatalo

ecent polls have shown 53% of Americans, now the majority, do not believe the findings of the government sponsored 9/11 Commission reflect what actually occurred on September 11, 2001. Repeated demands for a new investigation over the course of 16 years have not proven successful.

Passage of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) in 2016 by near unanimous vote in the United States Congress has renewed hopes for the 53% majority seeking justice, pushing the bar towards legal resolution, and increasing the chances for a long-sought arriving at the truth.

But new, important developments are likely to push the 9/11 justice movement into an even higher or maximum gear, resulting in a greatly empowered momentum which appears from any analysis and perspective simply unstoppable.

Those developments include a completed scientific study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 led by civil engineering Professor Leroy Hulsey at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks, in which he and his student graduate assistants concluded: “Building 7 did not collapse due to office fires.”

The other major development is an effort to introduce and pass legislation, building upon passage of the JASTA bill before it, calling for a new 9/11 investigation – in the form of the “Bobby McIlvaine Act”.

Bobby McIlvaine Jr. died from an explosion at the World Trade Center while on the ground floor lobby – before collapse began of the 110-story building, many floors above him. His father, Bob McIlvaine Sr., has battled for 16 years in calling for a new and thorough investigation, in an unrelenting push to find out who was behind the murder of his son.

Since published at “ae911truth” YouTube channel September 13, 2017, the announcement/press event has received 2,244 views. Here are some of the comments responding to the “Bobby McIlvaine Act” news conference, describing legislation calling for a new investigation into the events which transpired on September 11, 2001:

  • “Great work!”
  • “Great cause…”
  • “Brilliant work by Mr Gage and all the others who are pushing for the investigation.”
  • “Well done to everyone pushing for the truth. It will happen.”
  • “Great to see how far this organization has come, the truth will be known!”
  • “Thank you guys for your service. Zionist Israel must be dismantled by all means necessary.”
  • “We are the temporary custodians of a world our children inherit.”
  • “911 was an inside job. Period. Keep up the work, the truth will be known and can be found.”
  • “Awesome!”
  • “Thank You Richard Gage, for all your hard work and dedication.”
  • “Wounds won’t heal until truth is revealed. if they get away with this, ALL is lost.”
  • “Thank you so much Bob McIlvaine, and A/E 9/11 Truth for your tireless efforts! History will recognize all of you as heroes of truth.”
  • “Nothing of this important press conference will reach the mainstream press.”
  • “Well done all of you.”
  • “Please, everyone send their representatives a letter to support the Bobby McIlvaine Act.”
  • “Thank you for your relentless and exceptional work. This act and Professor Leroy Hulsey’s study cannot be ignored. The truth will prevail. Sending support and best wishes from New Zealand.”
  • “You go Mr. McIlvaine. I pray you will have justice for the murder of your beloved son, and maybe find some solace in the exposing of this crime against humanity.”
  • “Thank you.”
  • “Keep fighting the good fight! You’re all amazing!”
  • “Thank you for helping stand our ground for demanding 9/11 answers!”
  • “Expose the truth to another person everyday….we will achieve critical mass, revolt, and end the stronghold of the global elite.”
  • “This is wonderful.”
  • “The saddest thing is that it has to come to this to try to get any justice.”
  • “Thanks to ALL of you and the international supporters that continue to seek the TRUTH to help expose the traitorous criminals behind 9/11. To bring an end to unjust wars, to help introduce peace unto our fragile planet I salute you….Namaste!!!”
  • “I am so impressed with your tireless dedication to uncover the truth. Thank you!”
  • “Best wishes to you all and thank you for all your super human efforts. Keep on keeping on.”
  • “Let’s really make America great again!”
  • “Why don’t we hear about this in the main stream media?”
  • “What I see is that they are effectively waiting the movement out like those who questioned Kennedy’s assassination . 16 yrs. The real is problem is the same powerful people who are responsible for September 11 are running better false flag operations now. And the world accepts them without question.”
  • “Thank you so much for this so obviously squelched piece of information.”

Please consider creative, effective actions to disseminate the astonishing findings of University of Alaska-Fairbanks Professor Leroy Hulsey on the collapse of Building 7. Please consider taking similar powerful actions to assist in efforts leading to the successful introduction and passage of the “Bobby McIlvaine Act” in the Congress of the United States.

Thank you.
