My last blog post was wrong. As of a week ago, it does matter who is elected president. That’s because one of the candidates has openly called for a new investigation into the crimes of 9/11.
In a recent statement on the subject, Jill Stein made the following important comments and promises:
Jill Stein's Statement On 9/11:
On the 15th Anniversary, We Need to Learn the Full Story of 9/11 and to End the Catastrophic Wars on Terror That Followed
Fifteen years ago the world reacted in horror as more than 3,000 individuals were murdered. We honor those victims, and the heroic first responders of that day.
The same day the Green Party issued a statement calling for this act of terrorism to be treated as a crime against humanity and for the culprits to be criminally prosecuted. We pleaded, "Do not turn our cries of grief into a cry for war." Our national leaders and the corporate media ignored us.
The Stein/Baraka campaign stands for truth and transparency in politics. Since September 11 of 2001, secrecy and lies, endless war, torture, and a frightening "surveillance state" have become the new normal. On the 15th anniversary of 9/11, it is past time for sober reflection and public discourse about this tragedy.
