NEW YORK, NY -- New York's junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand fully supports the victims’ family members, hero first responders, and all New Yorkers pursuit of justice concerning the events of Sept. 11th, 2001.

Filling the Senate seat of Secretary Hillary Clinton, Sen. Gillibrand is one of the first in Congress to speak publicly about her commitment to finding out what really happened during the unsolved mass murder of innocents close to eight years ago in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

After hearing of the recent peer-reviewed and refereed study, which found explosives in the debris of the world trade center, Sen. Gillibrand said, “ “Based on what you’ve just told me, and that 70% of family members questions were not answered during the commission hearings, I think those questions should be answered.”

The scientific study is titled ‘Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe’ and authored by Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley, and Bradley R. Larsen.

Sen. Gillandbrand continued, “So if that means another review, or a fuller hearing, or more opportunities for the families, I will support that, because I do think that it’s important that every family member has every question answered.”

When asked if she would accept the study for review, she said, “I will certainly look at the study, and review it - absolutely.”

Concerning the James Zadroga bill, which would reopen the 9/11 victims compensation fund for sick first responders, Sen. Gillibrand said she is working on the House side with New York’s Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney to, “pass a 9/11 health bill. It’s really important the first responders have the health care they need.”

Sen. Gillibrand also said, when asked of her support for the petition campaign in New York City to give residents the ability to vote yes or no for a privately-funded investigation with full subpoena power, “I would very much like to look at that issue, because … the voters really should be part of the discussion. Would you give me that information, so I can review it?”

In response to the report, the entrenched corporate media has been silent save for one mention on Fox News in which the company referred to the interview as being conducted by ‘conspiracy theorists’, even though the family member and fallen loved one were mentioned by name.

Speaking and presenting members of our Congress about citizens’ issues is our obligation, and our right. How can Fox News propagandize a loved one’s simple and heartfelt concerns? And why call our Senator gullible when presented with the completely verifiable facts of the matter?

Sen. Gillibrand before leaving the venue received a copy of the film ‘In their Own Words’, a follow-up to the documentary ‘Press for Truth’. Both speak in depth about the family members concerns during the Commission hearings.

So absolutely Senator, we will give to you any and all information desired pertaining to the crime which took my Uncle’s life and 3,000 others years ago. We The People thank you for your honesty and integrity when answering questions about an event which begs for investigation and prosecution of those involved.
