PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release: July 23, 2004

Citizens critique of flawed 9/11 Commission process available online

Copies of " A CITIZENS' CRITIQUE: THE 9/11 COMMISSION PROCESS ", a report issued by 9/11 CitizensWatch, are currently available online at:

Full response to the 9/11 Commission Report due in coming weeks.

9/11 CitizensWatch, a public group that has monitored the national 9/11 Commission and demanded transparency, accountability, and a thorough investigation, released the 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."

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.

Available for press interviews and inquiries at 202-277-1992 or 401-935-7715. Copies can also be sent by mail or email upon request.
