Lawyers’ Committee Details Major 9/11 Legal Victory In WTC Records Case On Global Livestream Radio Interview Sunday, Jan. 2nd
LEGAL VICTORY REGARDING AGENCIES’ NONDISCLOSURE OF 9/11 RECORDS
A six-year legal battle against the National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST] and the Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] to get access to data they used in preparing FEMA’s Building Performance Study of the collapse of World Trade Center [WTC] buildings on 9/11 has culminated in a court decision granting discovery to 9/11 researcher David Cole. Cole, the plaintiff, is represented by Lawyers’ Committee attorney Mick Harrison. The Lawyers’ Committee has supported this litigation from the start. NIST and FEMA fought to dismiss Cole’s Freedom of Information Act case but on December 21, 2021, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied their motion for summary judgment and granted Cole discovery. Discovery will allow Cole to inquire via depositions, document requests, and interrogatories into why FEMA and NIST failed to disclose key records known to exist regarding the collapse of WTC buildings on 9/11.
Cole submitted his FOIA request for records of the background and raw data FEMA used for its Building Performance Study on May 20, 2011. Among the items Cole requested were photographs, video, audio, field notes, memoranda, lab samples and lab results. FEMA initially claimed they had no responsive records. Later, they said they had sent all their records to NIST without keeping paper or electronic originals or even copies for themselves. NIST and FEMA then delayed releasing any records to Cole for four years. Cole sued the agencies in November 2015. The following April, the agencies produced some records to Cole but withheld key responsive agency records that were known to exist, including a set of WTC-related drawings, CDs and a video. The recent court decision granting discovery should enable Cole to discover the fate of these key 9/11 agency records that NIST and FEMA have refused to produce for so long. If those records still exist, as they should, Cole will be able to ask the Court for an Order that these records be provided to him and the public. A detailed synopsis follows for those who wish to dive deeper into the details. The full 41-page decision by the Court is posted on the Lawyers’ Committee website. The Lawyers’ Committee will keep you updated on this historic case for which we will need your ongoing support to see us through discovery and final decision.
Co-Produce This Powerful New 9-11 Film!
“9/11: Crime Scene to Courtroom” — Historic WTC Evidence Documentary Series in Partnership with Richard Gage and … YOU!
Big News !!
You have the opportunity to co-produce this major 9/11 Truth Documentary Film Series along with an Emmy Award winning director!
For the first time, “9/11: Crime Scene to Courtroom” will cover the hard WTC evidence from both the technical and legal sides, bringing to the screen the evidentiary Exhibits in the Petition to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York by the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry calling for a Special Criminal Grand Jury on the crimes of the World Trade Center attacks. The new film will be submitted as a Supplement to the original Grand Jury Petition which must, by law, be given to the Jurors!
This film will let You see the evidence from the Grand Jurors’ perspective, as Attorney and Lawyers’ Committee Executive Director Mick Harrison, Architect Richard Gage, AIA, and other expert witnesses look right into the camera and ask You to watch and judge for yourself the dispositive, irrefutable scientific evidence for the controlled demolition of WTCs 1, 2, and 7.
You will be invited to weigh in on the evidence, episode by episode, with real-time feedback for the production of the next episode in the series, including who would be the most important witnesses for the actual Grand Jury to subpoena!
Imagine the Jurors seeing this professionally made film highlighting the WTC evidence, as deeply developed by Richard Gage in presentations over many years, watching Building 7, not having been hit by a plane, and after witnesses hearing explosions, collapse suddenly, smoothly and symmetrically, for several seconds at free-fall acceleration—as fast as a bowling ball falling from the sky—with absolutely no resistance from any of the building’s 80 columns. Imagine their reactions as they see peer-reviewed evidence of both ignited and unignited thermite incendiaries at the World Trade Center, as well as the explosive testimony from hundreds of first responders and TV reporters. And that’s just the beginning of the compelling evidence in this film series that will be divided into 20-minute segments and released free on YouTube-type platforms over the next six months.
Additional expert witnesses will dive deeper into the critical evidence, and Family Members of 9/11 victims will share their personal stories.
Our Emmy Award winning director is Kristina Borjesson, whose explosive documentary TWA Flight 800 exposed egregious government corruption and cover-up of the destruction of that plane due to explosive ordinance. Her professional experience includes producing for major television networks such as CNN, PBS and CBS, including with Dan Rather.
This Film is exactly what the 9/11 Truth Movement needs at this time, and because this is the moment to make it happen we’ve already begun the development and production phases! The WTC evidence in the 60 Petition Exhibits that it brings to life, and the legal framework it provides, strongly supports the testimony of the 9/11 Families’ in their 20-year struggle for justice featured in the powerful recently-released AE911Truth documentary Unspeakable directed by Dylan Avery.
This Film will effectively place You in the actual Grand Jury Room.
And … more encouraging news!! A few incredibly committed donors who know that this film simply has to be made have together pledged $40,000 in a matching grant !! So, almost half the initial heavy lifting will already be done … IF You collectively can contribute that amount as Co-Producers. When you do, your donation of $20 or $100 will instantly be leveraged to $40 or $200 … AND the 60 exhibits of WTC evidence in the Grand Jury Petition will fly off the Screen and into the minds of our future Grand Jurors.
We hope You’re as excited as We are about 9/11: Crime Scene to Courtroom, and We Thank You for doing all You can to make this historic Film a great success !!
