The Lawyers Committee For 9/11 Inquiry.


In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Congress initiated the “Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001″, also known as the “Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11”.  It was comprised of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. This was followed in January 2003 by the U.S. Government’s public investigation known as the 9/11 Commission. Their task was to fully investigate and explain what had occurred on 09/11/2001.

Beginning almost immediately and persisting to the present, serious questions have been raised about both the Congressional Joint Inquiry and the 9/11 Commission’s version of events surrounding 9/11.  There has been extensive media coverage of anomalies in the official account, destruction of evidence, obstruction, and even perjury. Many observers, including notably the families of the victims, criticized both inquiries for failing to address hundreds of key questions. An objective analysis, even quoting admissions by members of the investigations, leads to evidence of cover ups.

Given that the events of 9/11/01 has been used to shape U.S. foreign and military policy and ushered in an era of all-encompassing surveillance of all Americans, much more scrutiny and fact-finding is warranted.

Many chapters listing anomalies and problems cited by government officials which illustrate the shortcomings of the official 9/11 Commission’s investigation. Here are just a few facts to consider:

  • Evidence at the scene of the World Trade Center and Pentagon was destroyed or confiscated and withheld from public scrutiny.
  • Evidence given by the CIA to the 9/11 Commission was obtained through torture and is inadmissible.
  • Tapes held by the FAA were destroyed.Eyewitness reports from firefighters, police officers, and other reliable witnesses present in and near the WTC buildings on 9/11 have never been submitted as evidence in a legal action.
  • News reports, most notably from local New York City television stations, containing coverage of loud explosions were never presented as part of any official investigation. A FOIA case has revealed that NIST had made false statements claiming there were no samples of steel from WTC 7 for analysis when a photo that was obtained proves there is a sample.
  • There continues to be thousands of pages of classified documents.  A forensic analysis of physical evidence at the crime scenes has yet to occur.

In a properly functioning judicial system, federal and state attorney generals or special prosecutors would have taken actions to establish all the facts and obtain the fullest measure of justice. The reality has fallen far short of this.

Stand For The Truth: Healing The World Of 9/11.

n August of 2016, a former employee of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) began looking into the reports his agency had released years earlier on the collapse of the World Trade Center. What he found shook him to the core.

In this poignant half-hour interview, Peter Michael Ketcham tells his story of discovering that the organization where he had worked for 14 years had deliberately suppressed the truth about the most pivotal event of the 21st century.

Through his willingness to look openly at what he failed to see in front of him for 15 years, Mr. Ketcham inspires us to believe that we can all muster the courage to confront the truth — and, in so doing, finally heal the wounds of 9/11.

Donald Trump’s Podiatrist And Lucky Larry’s Dermatologist.

By Jerry Alatalo

“It is necessary that the prince should know how to color his nature well, and how to be a hypocrite and dissembler. For men are so simple, and yield so much to immediate necessity, that the deceiver will never lack dupes.”

– NICCOLO MACHIAVELLI (1469-1527) Italian statesman*

* “Discoverer of political science.” – Count Sforza.  “I affirm that the doctrine of Machiavelli is more alive today than it was four hundred years ago.” – Mussolini, 1924

aaa-31Alphabet Taking into consideration it’s still impossible to verify that votes cast on electronic voting machines were accurately tallied in accord with the voter’s desired candidate, the fact of the matter is that the inner workings or source codes in those machines are “proprietary” intellectual property of the owners of the companies which manufacture them. If election fraud occurred on November 8 using those machines nobody can prove it – a situation of great concern discussed, debated and unresolved ever since electronic voting arrived on the scene.

During his campaign rallies Donald Trump talked about his favorite books, the first being the Bible and his own “Art of the Deal” a distant second. No one seemed to think it unusual for a presidential candidate to mention only two books shaping his intellectual, philosophical and spiritual makeup, especially for one who is 70 years old. One would think his favorite book list to be longer and include the great philosophical works of Plato and Socrates, classic works on economics, history, international relations, war and peace, biographies, etc., but such was not the case for Donald Trump (or Hillary Clinton, for that matter).

Wouldn’t it be interesting to learn that Mr. Trump was a fan of Machiavelli but, true to Machiavelli’s advice to become a hypocrite and dissembler to gain power, understood the need of keeping it secret. After rust-belt state Ohio Governor John Kasich declined Mr. Trump’s invitation to join the ticket as candidate for Vice President he asked fellow rust-belt Governor Mike Pence of Indiana, who accepted. It was the rust-belt states, perennial Democratic states in presidential elections, that voted for Trump|Pence and turned the election. Machiavelli would have been proud…

Then again, perhaps Mr. Trump knows nothing about Machiavelli or the dark political science the Italian has become famous for, Trump is the “real deal” as his most energetic supporters claim, and all the people and groups of Americans Trump made promises to have reason to believe he’ll honor them when taking office. Those people and groups, remarkably, included enough of the U.S. population to win the 2016 election: workers harmed by offshoring of jobs due to NAFTA, WTO and other enacted or proposed major trade pacts, defense contractors who’ll like his idea of “rebuilding our military”, those millions who have a strong positive view of the Bible, those seeking a less-warlike, non-World War III sane foreign policy, and citizens residing in America’s inner cities who heard him promise to renew.

Why Trump decided to exclude voters concerned about global climate change from his list of those to whom he made promises was possibly because of political calculations showing that subset of the voting population as too small in quantity or irrelevant. Or, he might have concluded like science Professor Guy McPherson that the battle against climate change is already over, and that humanity has passed the point where even the strongest actions will not change the dark and inevitable future. Or, his “denier” stance might simply have been a tactical move to gain votes from all associated with the fossil fuels industries.

As noted, either the 2016 U.S. election outcome became determined using undetectable voting machine fraud or it was, in the generally held images of most Americans – “clean”. If fraud occurred to bring about President Donald Trump, one starts along the path of trying to ascertain the reasons the increasingly acknowledged and discussed “deep state” power behind the scenes would choose that surprising action in seeming defiance of all the polls and odds. Clinton received 48%, Trump 47%, Johnson 4% and Stein 1% of the popular vote.

Democrats would be disappointed but receive some satisfaction from “winning” more votes than Trump. Republicans would be disappointed in losing the popular vote but elated at “winning” the electoral college and the White House. Libertarians would be crushed but Trump supporters can say Johnson took votes from Trump, therefore making the case that Clinton and Trump basically tied. Greens were left wondering how so few independents (40-50% of voters), many (millions) who’d supported Bernie Sanders, voted for Stein. Clearly, the most anti-establishment party in the U.S. during a time of historic anti-establishment movements around the Earth was – while advocating people, planet and peace over profits, a “New Green Deal”, foreign policy based on international law, human rights and diplomacy, nationalizing the Federal Reserve, a new investigation of 9/11, etc. – effectively smashed into the ground.

From the perspective of the deep state elites, the outcome was the best possible considering the alternative – Clinton’s win. Accepting that it’s impossible to know with certainty whether the election was fraudulently rigged through both the Republican and Democratic primaries on through the general election, a Clinton win had major negative consequences directly linked to that potential outcome.

During the recent interview of WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange by journalist and documentary filmmaker John Pilger (2,000,000 views on YouTube), Mr. Assange pointed out that the most important email of them all had shown that Hillary Clinton was aware as early as 2014 that the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar had provided money and logistical support to ISIS. Hillary Clinton knew this fact yet kept it to herself, so if she had won the election possible treason charges against her and many other government officials from both major parties were forthcoming. The “war on terror” would have been totally revealed as a massive lie begun after September 11, 2001, and resulted in literally millions of lawsuits against the U.S. government – initiated by people harmed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and elsewhere.

It is worth noting that Donald Trump held the chance to capitalize to a great extent in the last days before election day November 8 by focusing on that email pointing to Saudi Arabia, Qatar and their ISIS aid, Clinton’s effective aiding and abetting terrorism through inaction and silence… but Trump chose not to, though he certainly must have known he could have destroyed her. Trump’s decision to ignore the explosive WikiLeaks email instead of employing its clear potential to obliterate Clinton as competition for the White House, a landslide Trump victory, provides further reason for suggesting the election had been rigged in Trump’s favor – the lesser-evil, safest “selection”.

Add to that potentially historic and paradigm-changing consequence of a Clinton win the revealing of widespread, endemic political corruption associated with the Clinton Foundation and one can see how the individuals collectively known as the “shadow government” or “deep state’ came to conclude Trump had to win despite their preference for the globalist Clinton. This conclusion came about in response to circumstances which developed after the election began, candidates entered the race, through the primaries, and finally on election day.

Many now perceive the upcoming Trump presidency as a time when Mr. Trump will become watched closely with regard to keeping his campaign promises. The often-used term thus far is keeping Mr. Trump’s “feet to the fire”. It’s worth noting that Donald Trump has said publicly that Larry Silverstein – leaseholder of the World Trade Center complex in New York City on September 11, 2001 (9/11) – is “a good guy… a friend of mine”.

Others describe Mr. Silverstein as “Lucky Larry” because he broke his usual routine of having breakfast every day at a restaurant in one of the Twin Towers on that historic and world-changing day. That morning, his wife convinced Mr. Silverstein to honor an appointment he’d made with his dermatologist, so he wasn’t in the building. It was later on that “Lucky Larry” admitted on camera to a reporter that he never made it to the dermatologist appointment either. Silverstein received a multi-billion dollar insurance settlement after destruction by controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and Building 7, and for damages to other buildings in the complex.

Like “Lucky Larry” and his dermatologist, Donald Trump might want to locate a medical specialist as well but of a different kind – a foot doctor, or podiatrist. President Trump will be experiencing the effects of having his feet positioned very close to the fire of political observation, scrutiny and judgment.

Many highly credentialed men and women, including over 2,500 architects and engineers, academics, veterans, police officers and firefighters, respected politicians, independent researchers, authors and everyday people from all walks of life around the Earth want a new investigation of 9/11. These people come from every possible point on the political spectrum from the far left to the far right, including supporters of Trump, and many of them believe that President Donald Trump will finally act to bring the truth of 9/11 to light.

The following video is of a report broadcasted on the 15th anniversary of 9/11 (September 11, 2016) by Russia One TV – and seen by an estimated 150 million Russian people.

From 9/11 To Syria: Inescapable Truths.

By Jerry Alatalo

“The man who wishes to remain faithful to justice must make himself continually unfaithful to inexhaustibly triumphant injustice.”

– CHARLES PEGUY (1873-1914) French writer

oil wellAlphabet Many have come to accept the theory that overthrowing  Bashar al-Assad in Syria was one of the objectives of those who planned, facilitated and destroyed World Trade Center Buildings 1 and 2, along with the lesser-known Building 7, on September 11, 2001. Now that Congress has overturned President Barack Obama’s veto of the JASTA bill allowing legal action by surviving family members of those who perished on 9/11 against Saudi Arabia, there has been a renewal of hope and optimism – a sense that a crack in the dam of coverup has developed – among those who believe the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks have never become identified and prosecuted.

Immediately after the Twin Towers were hit by airplanes, before the Towers fell or any semblance of investigation had begun, news reports went out over the airwaves reflecting commentary by politicians and terrorism experts asserting Osama Bin Laden was behind and guilty of the attacks. Instead of sending a small force of special operations personnel to Afghanistan to capture Bin Laden, the Bush-Cheney administration carried out a war against the entire Afghan nation – learned later so to control highly valuable energy pipelines and mineral resources in the region, as well as overseeing massive re-cultivation of poppy fields and Afghanistan’s lucrative heroin trade.

Americans were then subjected to an organized (unfortunately, successful) propaganda campaign by the Bush-Cheney administration that resulted in 70% holding the false perception that Iraq’s Saddam Hussein was somehow connected to the 9/11 attacks, that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction threatening American cities with mushroom clouds, and leading to Washington’s lawmakers voting for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The Bush-Cheney administration, Tony Blair in the United Kingdom, and other European nation heads went along with the lies, estimates are that over 1,000,000 Iraqis perished, and Iraq after being bombed to rubble has never recovered.

Barack Obama became president in 2008 and the next nation targeted for overthrow was Libya under Muammar Gaddafi. The Obama-Biden administration, in a “successful” manner similar to its predecessor Bush-Cheney group with Iraq, convinced the United Nations Security Council to establish a no-fly zone over Libya with the argument that Gaddafi’s slaughter of his own citizens was “imminent”, and only a matter of hours away. The claims that Gaddafi was on the verge of slaughtering the Libyan people were proven to be lies, thousands of Libyans perished  under NATO bombing in 2011, the nation’s infrastructure became destroyed, and Libya is now commonly described as a “basket case”.

Later, released emails of the U.S. Secretary of State in 2011 Hillary Clinton revealed the real reasons for Libya’s destruction and Gaddafi’s murder. One of the factors was control of Libya’s energy resources and another was Gaddafi’s plan to establish a new currency for the African continent. Understanding that oil was one of the prime motivators for those who engineered the bombing of Libya is easy enough; it’s safe to say the majority of wars in mankind’s history have been about natural resources and/or land/territory. Getting one’s head around the implications of an African currency and new, competitive monetary system involves higher level complexity of thought to grasp and/or imagine the powerful persons and groups involved in the direct decision-making that led to Libya’s military destruction.

Next after Libya in the line of military fire of the powerful persons and groups at the control of geopolitical decision-making came Syria. Some hold the theory that the main reason for attacks on Syria since 2011 until today has to do with natural gas pipelines delivering massive quantities of energy supply to European markets. The nations of Qatar and Iran share an immensely large natural gas field between them, and both proposed running a multi-billion dollar pipeline across Syria to Europe to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad rejected the Qatar offer and accepted the Iranian, plans were drafted, contracts written and signed on an Iran-Iraq-Syria project, then the violence in Syria began to dramatically escalate.

Other observers believe the Qatar-Iran natural gas pipeline competition is a real and significant factor for explaining the warring in Syria, but that broader regional factors having to do with national political structures in Middle East-North Africa are also necessary to consider. Maintaining the monarchies in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, etc. and holding off serious democratic reform that transforms the region politically is also an important factor, among many others in a range from less to more influential, for persons engaged in analysis.

Suffice to say Bashar al-Assad, like Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi before him, has experienced the same “demonization” coming from the Obama administration, European governments, and Western corporate media since 2011. An unbalanced, concentrated, organized strategy of attack which portrays Assad as a “ruthless dictator… killing his own people.. barrel-bombing” became developed then implemented to sway public opinion into favoring major military actions leading to his removal/overthrow from power. The main, important-to-consider aspect of the strategy is the intentional repeated focusing on the Syrian government and Assad, while minimizing or even excluding any focus on the estimated 350,000 paid mercenary terrorists who’ve entered Syria since 2011.

That exclusion and/or minimization of terrorism and terrorists operating in Syria since 2011 was verified in the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Anyone who watched and listened to that debate looking for the candidates’ positions on the situation in Syria became completely disappointed – Syria was never brought up for discussion, at any point, during the entire course of their exchange. What has developed in Syria is of major historic significance and could hardly become explained away as “not of sufficient importance for discussion in presidential debate(s)”. Most shocking and disturbing are increasing revelations that the terrorists who’ve attacked Syria and its people for 5 1/2 years have received their entire support from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel, the United States, United Kingdom, France and other governments. That describes in the mind of any sane and reasonable man or woman war crimes – state-sponsored terrorism.

In the video that follows attorney Daniel Sheehan describes crimes of an entirely different, higher magnitude and nature – in this talk referring specifically to 9/11 – reaching a level of consequence that “shakes the very legal foundation itself”. The accumulated crimes of state-sponsored terrorism committed against Syria – its people, military, government, property and infrastructure – are arguably in that category, but different from 9/11 in that the crimes have become identified, revealed, and acknowledged long before 15 years have elapsed. Events on 9/11 and in Syria could be described or visualized as two ends of a continuum of major historic, illegal and deceptive events on Earth.

When referring to 9/11, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other crime scenes which originated from the events of September 11, 2001, one finds a period of (15) fifteen years where humanity has experienced crimes of such size that international law’s foundation itself has become shaken, at risk, under attack, and in urgent need of defense. How the human collective deals with these profoundly worrying circumstances and comes to an agreement on moving forward with a firm foundation of truth is possibly the greatest challenge of this generation.


9/11: The origin of war in the 21st century

While many people are still unaware that a third skyscraper – Building 7 – collapsed on 9/11, those who’ve seen videos of its collapse nearly unanimously describe it as a “controlled demolition”. It is worth noting that Building 7 is commonly referred to in the 9/11 truth community (those who’ve done any research to speak of on 9/11) as “the smoking gun”, but that the official 9/11 Commission Report didn’t even mention Building 7.

The collapse of the South Tower has some similarity to Building 7 when observed in that one notices at the initial phase of collapse a physical event which seems to make impossible the tower’s total collapse. That event is the top 1/4 to 1/5 (estimated) of the structure seemingly “breaking off” and moving sideways. While not having any expertise or training in engineering, simple observation leads one to offer the suggestion that the top section, which clearly starts falling away from the rest of the structure, at some point in its ongoing out-and-away momentum would have ceased having any further weight-bearing effect on the collapse of floors below. In other words, it seems the South Tower’s collapse should have become ultimately partial – with perhaps 1/3 to 1/2 of the structure still standing – as opposed to collapsing completely down to the 1st floor.

Certainly the over 2,000 architects and engineers belonging to the group Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have taken great pains in studying every aspect of the South Tower’s collapse, and “scientifically presumptuous” would entail the correct term for describing this layperson’s simple observation. Details on the collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 are only a few of the thousands any legal team determined to bring charges against defendants will need to comb through in preparation for their case.

Veteran attorney involved in many of America’s most important legal cases Daniel Sheehan talked to those attending the Justice In Focus symposium September 11, 2016 in New York City about 9/11 legal options and strategies.  In the highly informative, insightful and historically revealing keynote address, Mr. Sheehan provided valuable descriptions of facts surrounding the cases he’s fought, in particular the difficulties, roadblocks and opposition attorneys face when engaging in highly politicized complex court battles.

Among the many astonishing points made by Mr. Sheehan was his mention that during the Karen Silkwood case the smuggling of 40 pounds of plutonium from the Kerr-McGee plant in Oklahoma to Israel became revealed, and that the plutonium was to become divided with portions going to the Shah of Iran and apartheid South Africa. That astounding set of facts became suppressed by the presiding judge, therefore concealed from the American public – because Sheehan failed to prove that Karen Silkwood was a member of the black race.

In a real sense, the world has traveled a circle that started on 9/11 and effectively ends in Syria. Humanity now has no other alternative but to face inescapable truths.
