9/11 Press for Truth Premieres in Palo Alto
Authors Echo Family Victims’ Demand for a Real Investigation

Friday, October 27th, 2006, at 7 pm, at Spangenberg Theater, Gunn
High School, 780 Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, Northern California 9-11
Truth Alliance will premiere the excellent documentary- 9/11 Press for
Truth to be followed by a discussion with the film’s hero, Paul
Thompson, author of The Terror Timeline (Harper Collins 2004) and author
Peter Dale Scott, who wrote Drugs, Oil, and War- The United States in
Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina (2003), edited (with David Ray
Griffin) 9/11 and American Empire, and wrote The Road to 9/11: Wealth,
Empire, and the Future of America (which will be published in 2007).

Following the attacks of September 11th, grieving families waged a
tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the
attack, including the Bush administration. In “9/11 Press For Truth,”
those most affected by the tragedy, including three of the Jersey Girls,
tell the story of how they took on the powers in Washington and won. They
forced an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission
fail to even ask their most urgent questions.

Adapting Paul Thompson’s Complete 9/11 Timeline
(http://www.complete911timeline.org), the film stitches together news
clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing a
pattern of official lies, deception and spin. Thompson’s narrative
presents a different picture of 9/11, one that raises new, more pressing
questions.

What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of
specific warnings before the attack? Was Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda
leadership allowed to escape in Afghanistan? What has been the reason for
obscuring the evidence regarding the Pakistani connection? Why, five years
later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?

Both authors have researched the CIA, Al Qaeda, the links between the US
government and the terrorists. In addition to the issues and questions
raised by the film, they will look at the films’ omissions, including
who was in command on 9/11, and the multiple wargames that were being
conducted that day which challenge the official story and underline the
urgency of investigating the crime of the century.
