GROWING 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT LAUNCHES JOINT WEBSITE, CALLS FOR NEW INVESTIGATION OF UNEXPLAINED FACTS

New York, NY (June 8, 2004) -- A new umbrella organization called 911Truth.org today announced the launch of a website to serve as a clearinghouse for the highest quality work of the emerging 911 truth movement. The site highlights the efforts of leading investigators, authors, videographers, and activists calling for a truly independent investigation of still unexplained facts.

According to David Kubiak, executive director of the organization, "The discoveries of independent 9/11 researchers, recent whistleblower testimony, and the demands of victim families have now reached the point where a coordinated approach is necessary. 911Truth.org will introduce the most important news on all these fronts as well as empower activism. Given just the currently known facts, we feel that exposing the full truth of 9/11 before the next election is an urgent and truly patriotic necessity."

After many months of pressure from victim family groups, the Bush administration established the Kean Commission last year to investigate the events of 9/11. This body will conclude its inquiry on July 26. However, many concerned observers have noted that the Commission is deeply compromised by its members' political, financial, and personal ties with those they should be investigating. Kyle Hence, founder of 9/11 Citizens Watch and a member of the 911Truth.org board, said, "Through my work with 9/11 families, I have witnessed growing disillusionment with this investigation's direction, depth and sincerity. I believe it is now obvious that the Commission's findings will reveal little new information because it still refuses to address the hard questions the family groups have asked. Clearly the commissioners' personal or professional ties are affecting their willingness to challenge the glaring inconsistencies of the official story. The victims' families deserve far better, as do our people as a whole."

To address these shortcomings, the 9/11 truth movement has developed its own investigative bodies, including the March 26-28 "International Inquiry - Phase I" in San Francisco and the five-day "International Inquiry - Phase II" that just concluded in Toronto on May 30th. The need for these inquiries was underlined by a Canadian poll reported in the May 26th Toronto Star showing that 63 per cent of Canadians now believe the U.S. government had "prior knowledge of the plans for September 11th, and failed to take appropriate action." Such opinions are also publicly held by eminent government officials in Canada, Britain, Belgium, and Germany. Evidence for these views has been widely discussed for years in the foreign press.

Despite the lack of debate in the US media, prominent Americans like actor Ed Asner, author Howard Zinn, activist Kevin Danaher, former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts, retired USAF Colonel Dr. Robert Bowman, and author Jim Hightower are now calling for an immediate re-examination of September 11 events, and the US Green Party has recently demanded a new independent investigation "with full participation of surviving family members." Several new documentaries and books are also fueling this truth movement, particularly "The New Pearl Harbor - Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11" by renowned theologian David Ray Griffin. Griffin was recently featured on Amy Goodmanís Democracy Now!, as was 9/11 widow Ellen Mariani who is suing top White House officials under the RICO (racketeering) Act for letting 9/11 happen for personal and political gain.
