Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is pleased to share the following announcement made by the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry on November 26, 2018:

United States Attorney Agrees to Comply with Federal Law Requiring Submission to Special Grand Jury of Report by Lawyers’ Committee and 9/11 Victim Family Members of Yet-To-Be-Prosecuted 9/11 Related Federal Crimes

The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a nonprofit public interest organization, announces its receipt of a letter from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in response to the Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10, 2018 Petition and July 30, 2018 Amended Petition demanding that the U.S. Attorney present to a Special Grand Jury extensive evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center Towers on 9/11 (WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7). The U.S. Attorney, in his November 7, 2018 letter to the Lawyers’ Committee, stated: “We have received and reviewed The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc.’s submissions of April 10 and July 30, 2018. We will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions” (emphasis added). (The U.S. Attorney’s letter is available here.)

The U.S. Attorney’s letter does not spell out the steps that will be taken to comply, but 18 U.S.C. § 3332 is clear as to what these steps must be. This law states: “[a]ny such [United States] attorney receiving information concerning such an alleged offense from any other person shall, if requested by such other person, inform the [Special] grand jury of such alleged offense, the identity of such other person, and such attorney’s action or recommendation.” This law also states that “(a) It shall be the duty of each such [special] grand jury impaneled within any judicial district to inquire into offenses against the criminal laws of the United States alleged to have been committed within that district.”

This letter from the U.S. Attorney was signed by Michael Ferrara and Ilan Graff, Chiefs, Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. On November 24, 2018, the Lawyers’ Committee replied, thanking the U.S. Attorney and expressing support for a thorough inquiry into the crimes reported in the Lawyers’ Committee’s petitions.

The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; 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; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition.

The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life.

Attorney Mick Harrison, Litigation Director, stated: “The failure of our government to diligently investigate this disturbing evidence has contributed to the erosion of trust in our institutions. The Lawyers’ Committee felt it was our duty as public citizens to submit this evidence to the U.S. Attorney for submission to the Special Grand Jury.”

Attorney David Meiswinkle, President of the Lawyers’ Committee’s Board of Directors, stated: “We have offered to assist the U.S. Attorney in the presentation of this evidence to a Special Grand Jury. We have also requested that Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth provide us expert support in the hope that our organizations will be invited to make a joint presentation of relevant evidence to the Special Grand Jury.”

Attorney William Jacoby, Lawyers’ Committee Board Member, stated: “We call upon the public and legal community to contact us and support our efforts to contribute to this grand jury process and to monitor and ensure compliance by the Justice Department.”

Executive Director and Actor Ed Asner stated: “The U.S. Attorney’s decision to comply with the Special Grand Jury Statute regarding our petitions is an important step towards greater transparency and accountability regarding the tragic events of 9/11.”

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.

The Lawyers Committee For 9/11 Inquiry.

Background

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.

Americans Demand ’28 Pages’, Truth Of September 11, 2001.

By Jerry Alatalo

aaa-37Alphabet The CBS Sunday night news magazine “60 Minutes”, a decades-long television staple for millions of Americans, recently reported on the still-classified “28 Pages” allegedly linking Saudi Arabia to terrorist financing of the September 11, 2001 events known together as 9/11. For the Saudi royal family, former President George W. Bush, his Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice and others, the “60 Minutes” broadcast may represent the beginning of their worst nightmares.

For millions of men and women frustrated for years in efforts to bring truth to bear about the events of September 11, 2001, the “60 Minutes” episode represents long-awaited international traction that could finally result in revealing the truth. The “28 Pages”, according to the disappointingly small number of members of Congress who’ve actually read them, pose no national security risk to the United States and therefore must become declassified, available, for all Americans to read.

That a significant percentage of elected representatives from the 50 states serving in the U.S. Congress have not yet even read the “28 Pages” – an opportunity open and available to them for many years – is truly disturbing and frankly beyond comprehension. Those in the House of Representatives and Senate who’ve read the material are greatly disappointed that their colleagues haven’t done so unanimously, because they’ve found the information crucial for making wise decisions based on full knowledge of situations and circumstances when voting on foreign policy legislation.

Another way of describing the classified pages is through imagining them as essential, critical evidence in a murder case not presented and/or effectively withheld for 15 years from the jury (the American people) while the murderer(s) remain free and on the loose. It might be impossible to name another controversy in American political history which entails the same levels of extreme importance, profound moral/ethical questions, and potential record, truly world-transforming scandal as those associated with the “28 Pages”.

Many who’ve followed developments since September 11, 2001 are asking themselves which of the remaining presidential contenders of either the two major parties or so-called third parties will be the 1st to call for declassification of the “28 Pages”. This is certainly a maximally important, absolutely relevant issue for the 2016 presidential election. They are asking President Barack Obama to release the papers.

The American people not only can handle the truth – they are demanding it. The issue couldn’t be discussed in any greater in-depth exploration, or presented more clearly. It is painfully obvious to any serious person the information must be made available to all Americans, and to the world.

The time has arrived on Earth for noble truth, ethical courage, civilized conduct and wisdom-guided morality to prevail.
