Flawed Commission process, Says 9/11 Watchdog in upcoming Report

Citizens group releases critique of flawed 9/11 Commission process:
*Will final report resolve questions?*
For immediate release -- July 20, 2004

WASHINGTON, DC, 9/11 CitizensWatch, a public group that has monitored the national 9/11 Commission and demanded transparency, accountability, and a thorough investigation, will release a critique of the process used by the National Commission on Terrorist Acts Upon the United States ("9/11 Commission") just hours before the Commissionís release of its own final report. "We have discovered conflicts of interest, contradictions in testimony and a conformity of witnesses presented at the 9/11 Commission's hearings," said co-founder John Judge, "as well as flawed premises that will likely lead to incorrect conclusions about the events surrounding September 11, 2001 and unsound recommendations for our future security."

Copies of the 9/11 CitizensWatch critique will be available on Thursday July 22, 2004 at a press conference in the Lisagor Room at the National Press Club from 9 - 10 am. (529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor)

The 9/11 Commission's report is the result of a flawed process, demonstrated by obstructions from the White House, conflicts of interest among members and staff, and a lack of sworn testimony from many of their sources. Researchers have analyzed transcripts from the hearings and discovered omissions of key topics that omit:

--the historical context to the tragedy,

--a coherent explanation of the failed NORAD/FAA responses, any investigation into the source of the anthrax attacks, and

--the release of non-classified evidence and documents to support conclusions.

These and other omissions and shortcomings are likely to leave many family members' questions unanswered and responsible officials held unaccountable. The report may fail to resolve public doubts about the Commissionís reconstruction of events. Commission statements and testimony have so far failed to clearly identify the ultimate source of the attacks or its funding.

Confirmed speakers include:

--Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

--John Judge & Kyle Hence, co-founders of 9/11 CitizensWatch

--Statement from Bill Doyle, 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism

--Statement from Judith Jackson Reiss, mother of World Trade Center victim
