New York Times Best Selling Author Steve Alten Endorses NYCCAN

As an author, I often write about good versus evil and the journey of the hero, who must reveal the truth against all odds in order to right a wrong. There is no doubt that a great evil was committed on September 11, 2001, but the entire truth has yet to be revealed. Why is the truth so important? Because the domino effect of 9/11 led to two wars that wiped out over a million innocent people who had nothing to do with September 11th, and there has yet to be a single firing or reprimand in regard to intelligence failures that allowed 3,000 Americans to be murdered.

Democracy is an illusion if the people refuse to make our leaders accountable. An open free society cannot exist in a vacuum controlled by the media. Real patriotism is not a noun, it is a verb.

Each of us has a choice: We can either shrug our shoulders and remain indifferent, or demand a real investigation. As a patriotic American, I fully support the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now, which has one simple yet important goal: the creation of an independent and impartial subpoena powered investigation into the September 11th attacks.

Be the hero of the story: Demand answers NOW so that we can prevent another 9/11 that could steal more of our loved ones.

NYCCAN Action Alert

I heard from Amy Goodman that the best way to get DemocracyNow to cover a news story is to contact them at Below is the email that I sent. Please contact them and let them know that this is something they should DEFINITELY be covering. Thank you.

To the producers of DemocracyNOW,

Currently, there is an effort underway in New York City to get a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks onto this November's ballot. Over 70,000 New Yorkers have signed the petition, and 80 9/11 Family Members have endorsed it (up from 53 three weeks ago), including the famous "Jersey Girls." Noted individuals such as 9/11 Whistleblower and Time's Person of the Year, Coleen Rowley, as well as Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan have endorsed this effort. The mainstream media has completely and totally ignored this "newsworthy" event. The reason I am writing is to ask, no beg, that you cover this extremely important story. It has been 8 years since that horrid day, and there has been no accountability, and no justice. Especially to those victims' family members that have seen the names of their loved ones used to start illegal pre-emptive wars, take away our civil liberties, bankrupt this country, and expand Executive power to the point of no accountability. Please do the right thing, and cover this extremely important story.

Sincerest Regards,

Jon Gold

Do these people deserve to know how and why their loved ones were murdered? Do we deserve to know how and why 9/11 happened?
