Anti-war Icon Cindy Sheehan Supports 9/11 Truth and a New 9/11 Investigation

Speaking in Burlington, Vermont this past Friday evening, March 2nd, 2007, grieving mother, anti-war activist and author Cindy Sheehan extended her hand in support of researchers and activists skeptical of the official line on the 9/11 terror attacks and publicly questioned several key features in the establishment mythos surrounding the event.

When asked the question, “Do you buy into the government's account of events on 9/11 and if not, which part or parts do you suspect or have you proven to be false,” Sheehan:

1) called attention to the relevance of 9/11 by linking it to the claims used to justify the war in Iraq and her son's death there;
2) lent verbal support to a new, democratically-led 9/11 investigation;
3) lent verbal support and urged others to lend their support to 9/11 Truth researchers and activists;
4) referenced the video, “Loose Change” (; and
5) referenced David Ray Griffin's book, The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 (

The surprise statement came just a few days before Tuesday's town meeting vote in Burlington and Lincoln on a resolution asking voters, "Shall Vermont's Congressional Delegation be advised to demand a new, thorough, and truly independent forensic investigation that fully addresses the many questions surrounding the tragic events of September 11, 2001?"

If the vote carries, the event will mark a significant turning point in popular expression of skepticism about the official story regarding these crimes. In 2006, an on-line CNN poll ( saw 83% agreement that a cover-up had taken place, while more scientifically-secure data collection in 2004 by Zogby ( found that only 33% of New Yorkers found the commission's report adequate. Tuesday's town meeting vote will be the first legal test of the matter via established routes of democratic government.
