Because of their popularity, they were able to do so many horrible things virtually without question.
As the September Eleventh Advocates said recently, "the American Justice System has been used to try terrorists 214 times since September 2001, with a success rate of 91% - 195 people were convicted." In my opinion, they don't want 9/11 in the court room because like in the Moussaoui Trial (read Fact #47), things may be revealed that they don't want revealed. Since we already know about the torture, I wonder what else they are trying to hide? - Jon

Standing in front of the Supreme Court this morning, a group of Republican lawmakers railed against the court system run out of the building behind them. A sign affixed to the plexiglas podium each spoke at in turn spelled out the reason for their concern. "Protect our homeland," it read. "Keep terrorists out of America."
At their annual Christmas party, The Fealgood Foundation appealed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to pass HR847, the James Zadroga 9/11 Health Act, and to President Barack Obama to sign it.
I hope you think this information is as important as I do.

DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
WASHINGTON - Angry Sept. 11 responders say President Obama has offered sympathy but no support for their appeal to champion their cause in Congress.
A group of 9/11 widows and rescue workers recently wrote Obama, asking his help to pass a bill that would fund care for ailing responders over the next 30 years.
Obama wrote back Tuesday, the Daily News has learned, saying he understands their plight and values their heroism.
"The individuals suffering health ailments from Sept. 11 and its aftermath deserve proper medical attention," the President wrote. "You served selflessly, and your concerns are of great importance to our country. I remain committed to supporting the heroes of Sept. 11."
But he left out whether he'd get behind the bill.
"It's a nice letter, and I will put it in my scrapbook," said former construction worker John Feal, who lost half a foot at Ground Zero. "But it's no more than a souvenir unless he supports that bill."
Do yourself a favor, and take the time to read as much as you can.
Have you been paying attention to the Iraq Inquiry currently taking place in Britain? A lot of interesting information has come out that confirms what we all knew.
According to Sir William Patey, in February 2001, "the UK knew that some in the new US administration wanted to topple Saddam." This coincides with former Secretary of Treasury Paul O'Neill who said, "from the very beginning, there was a conviction, that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go," and that "it was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this."
And people say we're crazy for thinking that elements within our Government were complicit in the 9/11 attacks. Even when some of them acted like Iraq was all part of the "plan" after the 9/11 attacks took place. What qualifies as suspicious behavior? I mean C'MON. - Jon

Not sure if Bush-Blair deal to invade Iraq was 'signed in blood,' former UK ambassador says; Iraq war inquiry could be a cover-up, critics claim
A former British ambassador to the United States says then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice talked to him about Iraq and Saddam Hussein hours after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
As I mentioned in the above video, I think the NYC Trials will be a perfect opportunity for people to remind everyone that there are more suspects for the crime of 9/11. The following are some flyers I have created naming some of those suspects.
Good Job Lorie... stick to your guns. - Jon

Some 9/11 widows who want to see a terror trial in New York today questioned why a group strongly linked to Liz Cheney is leading the charge in opposition to the trial.
Her father, after all, is the man many Democrats and liberals think broke the law in pushing for interrogation techniques now deemed torture by the Obama administration, and which were used on Al Qaeda plotter Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
The anti-trial group is led by Debra Burlingame — whose brother piloted one of the doomed planes — and who is a guiding light at 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America.
The 9/11 Families group had as a springboard Keep America Safe, a Liz Cheney vehicle where Burlingame serves on the board.
British officials heard the "drum beats" of war with Iraq emanating from the US government more than two years before the 2003 invasion and several months before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Sir John Chilcot's Iraq inquiry has heard.

But the UK in 2001 refused to back a policy of regime change because the British view was that toppling Saddam Hussein would have been illegal.
The first session of Sir John's public inquiry into the events before, during and after the war is hearing evidence from senior civil servants about British policy and plans for Iraq in 2001.
The British policy on Iraq was put under formal review at the start of 2001, when George W Bush arrived in the White House as US president.
Sir William Patey, then head of Middle East policy at Foreign Office said that in February 2001, the UK knew that some in the new US administration wanted to topple Saddam
