(Washington, DC), an independent, non-partisan network of citizens concerned about the growing number of issues surrounding September 11, as yet un-addressed or unresolved, launched its new website at the first press conference dealing with 9/11 issues other than airline safety on June 10, 2002 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Thoroughly-sourced research and some disturbing new allegations were woven into a series of presentations that will undoubtedly lay the groundwork for placing more pieces into the 9/11 puzzle.

Former Bush I Administration Asst. Secretary of Housing, Catherine Austin Fitts, and Kyle F. Hence, co-chair of, opened the conference with probing questions that have remain unanswered. Lorna Brett -- PR Director of the Nolan Law Group representing Ellen Mariani who lost her husband, Julie Sweeney, making a impassioned plea for answers, and her attorney Mary Schiavo -- former Inspector General for U.S. Department of Transportation and lawyer for 32 families from all 9/11 hijacked planes, presented a case for egregious negligence linked to airline safety and shocking yearly statistics of 672 hijackings globally since 1972.

Three 9/11 victim family groups were represented: Ryan Amundson and Derrill Bodley (Peaceful; Monica Gabrielle (Skyscraper Safety Campaign); and Steven Alderman and his wife, Elizabeth (co-chair of Families of September 11th Memorial Committee). They posed pointed questions and expressed appreciation for the conference.

From the Wildernessí, Mike Ruppert, speaking by phone from British Columbia while on speaking tour, characterized a pre-9/11 pattern of government behavior that exceeded mere incompetence. Author, John Judge addressed the failure of U.S. air defenses unable to protect the Pentagon, and Journalist Tom Flocco offered several new intriguing lines in inquiry into suspicious dealings involving Deutsche Bank and Enron and recent 9/11-linked FBI stock trading indictments. J. Michael Springmann, Esq, former Visa Chief at U.S. Saudi Embassy, revealed that State Department forced him to issue Visas to known terrorists -- then shredded his "unsafe" list after he left. Dr. Steve Camarota, Research Director for Center for Immigration Studies, offered analysis of how lax border control invites terrorists, with researcher Richard Ochs proposed that there was a specific political agenda in the timing of the Anthrax attacks. Jennifer Van Bergen from addressed the Constitutional implications of the Patriot Act.
