Citizens' Watchdog Group Challenges 9/11 Commissioners to Debate; Says 9/11 Report "Worst Cover-up in History"

Washinton, D.C. -- Claiming the official narrative doesn't hold up under the scrutiny of ignored whistleblowers, academics and truly independent investigators, a leading 9/11 watchdog group today issued a formal challenge to debate the 9/11 Commission's findings, calling upon former 9/11 Commissioners to put real "public discourse' in their 9/11 Public Discourse Project.

Today, the 9/11 Public Discourse Project, the legacy non-profit project of the 9/11 Commission, is issueing its first report on the Congressional response to the 9/11 Commission's recommendations. During a recent C-SPAN interview Vice-Chair Lee Hamilton challenged those who have evidence contrary to the findings of the 9/11 Report to bring it forward into the public arena, this his response to criticism of the 9/11 Report from callers and pressing follow-up questions from Washington Journal co-host Brian Lamb.

9/11 CitizensWatch, the only group formed with the expressed purpose of watchdogging the work of the 9/11 Commission maintains the Commission's work is flawed and incomplete and is prepared to bring evidence forward in a publicly televised debate or forum that effectively challenges the official narrative and "findings of facts and circumstances" of the 9/11 Report.

"I believe this Commission will go down as the worst cover-up in nation's history," said CitizensWatch co-founder Kyle F. Hence, "but what I believe is not what is important here. We are prepared to meet Mr. Hamilton's challenge for the benefit of the families, and all Americans concerned about the future of our country. But will he meet ours? Mr. Hamilton, former 9/11 Commissioners and staffers, will you join us in a public forum or debate before you conclude your reports on the Commission's recommendations? Will you put real public discourse into your 9/11 Public Discourse Project and see if it measures up to the families expectations?"

A preliminary analysis of the 9/11 Report by 9/11 Family Steering Committee members and prominent Jersey widows Lorie Van Auken and Mindy Kleinberg found that well over half of the questions posed by their 9/11 victim family group (one responsible for the 9/11 Commission) were not addressed in any way whatsoever by the 9/11 Commission.
