With the intention of taking our 9/11 investigations to a higher level, the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry has just delivered a battery of Freedom of Information Actions (FOIAs) to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.Code. 552, is a law that gives citizens transparency into government actions. This Law requires the full or partial disclosure of previously unreleased information and documents controlled by the United States government upon citizen request.

Six specifically targeted Freedom of Information Actions have been sent to the FBI.

The Lawyers’ Committee has an historic mission. On and after September 11,2001 the United States Government failed to properly investigate the horrible crimes committed. As a result, the real culprits and masterminds have flourished behind the curtain and in the shadows. Some may even be in plain view. The Lawyers’ Committee is dedicated to investigating all aspects of the worst assault in our Nation’s history, the manifold crimes of 9/11 and developing Grand Jury, and Congressional Petitions that will lead to further investigations, indictments and convictions of the culprits and litigation where necessary. MORE…

We are presently responding to two negative federal court rulings. One ruling in Washington, D.C., concerned the 9/11 Review Commission where the FBI failed to evaluate and report to Congress on seven areas of 9/11 evidence never assessed by the original 9/11 Commission. In this case our Appellate Court Appeal was denied, but the Lawyers’ Committee is preparing a petition of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. In the Southern District Court in Manhattan, NYC, the United States Attorney has failed, to our knowledge, to present to a Grand Jury the controlled demolition evidence given to him by the Lawyers’ Committee showing that explosives were used to destroy the World Trade Center Towers. We are appealing the courts ruling denying plaintiffs claims. In both cases the issue of standing has been used by the government and the courts to deny the Lawyers’ Committee’s efforts to secure the truth.

It is hard to believe that co-plaintiffs Bob Mcilvaine who lost his son, Diana Hetzel who lost her husband, a NYC fire fighter, Jeane Evans who lost her brother, a NYC fire fighter, and NYC Hazmat Fire Chief Michael J. O’ Kelly, who suffered permanent lung damage working on the contaminated piles and Fire Commissioner Christopher Gioia, Richard Gage, Architects and Engineers and the Lawyers’ Committee would not have standing either under Federal Mandamus Law or the First Amendment of the United States Constitution Right to Petition Government.

In order to conduct this FOIA campaign to recover important documents and continue our investigations we need your financial support. The six FOIAs just sent are listed below. They can be followed up by many more. Please support the Lawyers’ Committee efforts with a tax deductible contribution.

 

Thank you.
