Spitzer Complaint, Ryan & 911Truth.org news


A Letter From Nicholas Levis
http://www.911truth.org/
Nov. 19, 2004


Dear 9/11 Truth Seekers,

It's Friday and a lot is going on... here's the latest on ''Justice for 9/11'', the Kevin Ryan story, and developments at 911Truth.org:

********

Justice for 9/11

The "Justice for 9/11" Coalition today filed a restated and amended Citizen's Complaint and Petition with the offices of Eliot Spitzer, the Attorney General of New York State, citing probable cause to convene a grand jury on unsolved crimes surrounding the events of September 11, 2001.

See http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041119122358922

We ask you all to be the media and spread the word, and to get the press release at the above URL out to any media or contacts you may have by Monday.

The Citizens' Complaint and Petition is unprecedented. Unlike a few other states, New York law does not provide a formal procedure for it. We are trying to invent a new legal wheel, and we need your help.

Nine highly regarded complainants from among September 11 family members, first responders and New York citizens have signed on, and many others are carefully considering whether to join them.

We are also inviting friendly support statements from other groups, in the style of amicus curiae briefs, and looking for new coalition members.

This work is by no means finished, despite the weeks of hard work by a team advised by legal counsel Carolyn Betts. We aren't pretending that we've covered every aspect of possible 9/11 crimes in the present version of the Complaint and Petition. As we've told Spitzer's office, this is a living document, of, for and by citizens, and we're going to keep adding to it.

But the new Complaint is more comprehensive. The 30-page main text and 24 appendices represent much of the best in 9/11 research, if by no means all. These documents will be posted piece-by-piece at Justicefor911.org during the next few hours (okay, it might take until Monday morning before we have the whole thing up).

The PDF of the main text submitted to Spitzer is already there for the downloading. http://www.Justicefor911.org

The "A-series" evidentiary appendices present what the Justice for 9/11 coalition considers to be the best arguments of the 9/11 skeptics' community. The online "B-series" appendices will compile additional material towards generating new "A-series" appendices.

The "Justice" site will later feature a page inviting you to add your own research, witness observations, and possible appendices for consideration in future submissions to Spitzer and other prosecuting attorneys by the "Justice for 9/11" coalition. We will have to vet all such material very carefully.

While you're checking it all out, please sign the electronic Petition of Solidarity at the "Justice" site, if you have not already done so, and get your friends on board!

We hope all this will serve as inspiration to those of you who live in the other 49 states to file similar complaints with your own Attorneys General and District Attorneys. One of the appendices deals with state jurisdictional matters. As you might guess, many states harbor actionable connections to the suspected 9/11 crime complex. If the deceptions of 9/11 are ever to be tackled by the means of criminal investigation--cross your fingers and hope Spitzer has the courage and air cover!--then this will surely necessitate cooperation among state AGs, on the same model as the tobacco lawsuits or the Microsoft case.

Stand up and file one of these in your own state. We invite you to borrow from our approach, language and appendices and create your own complaints. In many cases, it will be as easy as filling in "California" for "New York" (that's a hint). Get in contact with us at 911Truth.org (write to david@911truth.org).

In about 10 days we will be holding a major New York press conference on the Complaint - and on an excellent new project we hope to announce next week!

The Kevin Ryan Story: Update

Meanwhile, in other developments, as you know, Underwriters Laboratories last Tuesday (11/16) fired their executive, Kevin Ryan, site manager of the Environmental Health Laboratories. Ryan had written a letter doubting the fire-melts-steel theory to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which is due to release a draft of its final report on the WTC collapses early next year. The letter was originally published a week ago by the 9/11 Visibility Project at http://septembereleventh.org, and there was a follow-up story by 911Truth.org on Nov. 12: http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041112144051451

Now here's the latest: UL asked us to publish a statement on Ryan's termination. We found this inadequate, and wrote back asking them to answer a few reasonable questions. They haven't yet, so since it's the end of the week, we are publishing both documents, here: http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041119123941493

This story continues to develop and we will keep you posted. Kevin Ryan has been punished because he stood up for what he believes. The time may have come for you to let UL know what you think about all this. The 9/11 Visibility Project will be sending out an action alert, but it's easy enough to figure out how to contact UL from their own statement for publication at the above URL.

If you look around you, you can probably see a number of appliances with UL seals on them - for example, your telephone and your computer. They are not just a (non-profit) corporation, they have a mission central to public safety, and they should be answerable to anyone who uses a light switch. It's hard to imagine a greater public safety issue than knowing the full truth about what might cause a skyscraper (or three) to collapse into a pile of dust.

Growing Pains At The 911Truth.Org Site

Finally, you may have noticed the growing pains at the 911Truth.org site. We are starting new actions and preparing more scoops, like on the discovery of the Ground Zero black boxes-- (See http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041028145905868). --and a story in the works on last week's National Book Awards, where "The 9/11 Commission Report" lost out to the appropriately-named "Arc of Justice." (What were the book prize people thinking? How could they ever consider any document authored by a government committee, let alone one that would properly be a candidate for best work of fiction?)

But we are painfully aware that the site has grown unwieldy. So we are busy redesigning the whole thing to achieve clarity--and to prepare our strongest material for the flood of new visitors yet to come (we're having record days this month as it is). The new site will go online in a couple of weeks, but in the meantime, we hope the cosmetic changes on the front page at least give better access to our most popular and important articles.

All this is a lot of work, and we will be formally requesting your help for the staff fees fairly soon. But if you like what we're doing and you want to stay ahead of next week's fund-raising pitch, feel free to click on "donate"! (This feature has also been having problems; if you have difficulties let us know by writing to emanuel@911truth.org.)

Finally, for a bit of comedy relief, we got such a great letter today that we decided to start a letters page. Since we can only do one or two of these a day, for now it is intended to speak to a very important American demographic - fans of the World Wrestling Federation. See http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20041119115747634

All the best for truth, justice, and a paradigm shift early this century,
