This text excerpt is also from No Lies Radio:
Senator Gravel read the “Pentagon Papers” into the Senate record in 1971, and thus helped bring an end to the Viet Nam war. Currently, over 1300 architects and engineers are calling for a new investigation of “9/11.” [See http://ae911truth.org/] Senator Gravel and concerned citizens are joining together to raise funds to file an initiative in California to enact a 9/11 Truth Commission law. The goal is a new commission untainted by politics and with subpoena powers.
9/11 Truth California Initiative
As concerned citizens, we are joining together to raise funds to file an initiative in California to enact a “9/11 Truth Commission law.” Once passed, this new commission untainted by politics and with subpoena powers to investigate 9/11 and its aftermath, the Afghan and Iraqi wars and the global War on Terror generally. Once the initiative process is under way in California, identical initiative measures will be filed in other initiative-enabled states such as Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and others. These numerous filings will make the need for a new investigation of 9/11 a political issue in the presidential and congressional elections of November 2012.
Millions of people are aware of the problems with what we’ve been told happened on 9/11. To take just one thing, the freefall collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 looked exactly like a controlled demolition with explosives, and 1300 architects and engineers are calling for a new investigation, with subpoena power. I’m with a group that wants to implement this new investigation through a voter initiative. Could I count on your support? (hand the person a card) — 24 seconds.
The collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 on the afternoon of 9/11, an event that baffled engineers, now appears to be the most obvious of many smoking guns. Architects and engineers, scientists, military officers, and actors and artists have organized themselves, along with the Building What? Campaign, to seek the truth. Neither the Obama administration nor the US Congress has responded to repeated requests for a new investigation of 9/11. Mainstream media avoids the issue, taking its cue from government officialdom. Those contributing to ad hoc investigations, bringing forth new facts, are characterized as conspiracy nuts.
In order to evade the conspiracy characterization, our rhetoric will only focus on the need for a new investigation, devoid of the politics associated with earlier efforts. This strategy will be reinforced by the selection of distinguish persons to serve as commission members who will be identified in initiative filing documents; some commissioners may be foreigners. Commission candidates will be recruited from the global 9/11 Truth Movement. The commissioners will appoint the all-important director of the commission.
In summary, a 9/11 Initiative campaign will:
- Focus attention of the Global 9/11 Truth Movement on an actionable goal
- Necessitate the raising of substantial funds to finance the initiative campaign
- Have a website to facilitate citizen participation, fundraising, and financial transparency
- Seek out and vet distinguished, qualified persons, to serve on the commission
- File identical initiative measures in several states to make the 9/11 Initiative a national issue
- Circumvent the government and the media by going directly to the people
- Result in a commission with subpoena powers and the necessary public funding
- Create an official body untainted by political interests able to pursue the facts surrounding 9/11 regardless of where they lead
