FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDIA ADVISORY

September 11 Victim Families who Fought to Create the 9/11 Commission Declare it a Failure on the First Anniversary of the 9/11 Report.
- 9/11 families join researchers to ask independent media and the foreign press for help -

WASHINGTON - July 21 - On Friday, July 22, 2005, one year to the day after the release of the "9/11 Commission Report," Project Censored founder, Dr. Peter Phillips will lead a National Press Club briefing entitled "The Failure of the 9/11 Commission Report and the Mainstream Media's Disregard." The briefing will feature scores of detailed examples of the Commission's flawed findings, self-censorship, misrepresentations and conflicts of interest that call the accuracy and integrity of their entire investigation into doubt.

Time: 1:00-2:30 PM, Friday, July 22, 2005 Place: Holeman Lounge, National Press Club, Washington, DC Sponsor: DC Emergency Truth Convergence http://truthemergency.us

Lead presenters are 9/11 family members and Family Steering Committee cofounders, Monica Gabrielle, Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken. After the FSC members' 18 months of lobbying finally forced a 9/11 investigation and the Commission's creation, they submitted hundreds of unanswered questions that Commissioner Jamie Gorelick promised would be their investigation's "road map". However, by these courageous widows' count, the Commission ignored approximately 70% of their concerns, and also suppressed important evidence and whistleblower testimony that challenged the official story on many fronts.

Next, renowned theologian, Dr. David Ray Griffin, will address "9/11 and the Mainstream Press." Griffin's new book, "The 9/11 Commission Report - Omissions and Distortions," analyzes over 115 specific lies, omissions and misrepresentations contained in the final document. He not only details individual lies and the larger patterns they form, he also documents glaring conflicts of interest within the Commission, especially the executive staff who steered, shaped and effectively wrote the final report.

After Dr. Griffin, four-time Emmy award winner and "Weapons of Mass Deception" producer Danny Schechter will examine the corporate media's vital role and proven tactics in defending "official story" explanations of events like 9/11, Abu Graib, and the "War on Terror" as whole.

There will also be a presentation by British researcher Nafeez Ahmed, whose first 9/11 book, "The War on Freedom" is now an award-winning bestseller in Europe. Mr. Ahmed's new book "The War on Truth" is already being hailed by geo-political scholars as the definitive deconstruction of the official 9/11 myth thus far.

This briefing is especially designed for the independent media and foreign press, and kicks off the DC Emergency Truth Convergence, an unprecedented three-day series of collaborative events between diverse truth movement researchers, veteran & victim family advocates, and indie media activists. See http://truthemergency.us for details.

According to Convergence spokesperson Peter Phillips, "The events of September 11 not only took thousands of innocent American lives, they have been repeatedly used to justify previously unthinkable policies of domestic repression, preemptive attacks, torture, and endless war.

"We know most of these policies had been championed by powerful voices within this government long before 9/11, but without these outrageous 'surprise attacks' they could have never come to pass. If the 9/11 Report is dangerously inaccurate, as more and more evidence now indicates, the nation still needs an honest investigation of what really happened and why no one has ever been held accountable. In particular, we need to know whether the behavior of officials who seem to have profited most handsomely from 9/11 and its dark wake should be looked at once again.

"Since we are anxious to get this crucial challenge to the American public and world at large, we are extending a special invitation to the independent media community and foreign journalists, who have a far better track record of investigating governmental deceit and exposing official treachery than the US corporate media."
