Re-Open 9/11 Investigation

Vote for Questions in the Republican Presidential Debate!

Do you want the Republican candidates for president to be asked a question about 9/11 in the debate coming up on May 3 on MSNBC? You can help make it happen!

Members of Politico.com can submit questions for the candidates, and anyone can vote on them. The top 20 most popular questions will actually be asked in the debate.

I submitted a question that could create some interesting fireworks on stage between Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Ron Paul, both of whom are scheduled to be in the debate. My question is the following, for Giuliani:

Rep. Ron Paul has called the 9/11 Commission Report a "charade" and supports a new investigation. Millions of Americans agree with him, including 9/11 victims' families. Do you agree, or do you believe the government has been fully honest about 9/11?

If you want Giuliani to be asked this question Thursday night and have to squirm and sweat under the Klieg lights, please vote for this question and encourage anyone you know who believes in 9/11 Truth to vote for it. If it gets enough votes to make it into the top 20 questions, it will be asked in the debate, with millions of Americans watching! ...

Congress On 9/11

Pelosi's proposals for increased secruity by implimenting the remaining 911 Commission proposals are beside the point. The Commission itself avoided asking any really hard questions, like, for instance, putting Bush under oath and getting him to tell what happened that day. It even contributed to the administration's overall obfuscation by hiding its own staff study of the inadequate FAA response to numerous pre-attack warnings, then finally releasing them -- after the presidential election. The Congress never has exercised any oversight to speak of over the FAA, and that includes under both Democratic and Republican leadership. For more than a decade the FAA ignored warnings by its own staff and the Congress could have cared less -- quite possibly because of close ties to the industry by former members such as George Mitchell. Tom Daschle's wife was an airline lobbyist when he was Majority leader of the Senate.

The Members of the Family Steering Committee for the 911 Independent Commission issued a set of ratings and questions after the commission shut down. They remain unanswered. Compiled by Jersey Girls Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken, they include such things as how come after Bush was told by the White House situation room a commercial airliner had hit the World Trade Towers, he continued with his classroom visit to the Florida elementary school? And after Bush got warnings of an attack from 11 different nations, what did he do to defend this country? There are more than 20 pages of questions from the families. You can read them here [pdf].

9/11 Probe Question Will Pass To Voters

Burlington voters on Town Meeting Day will be the first in the country to vote 'yes' or 'no' on reopening the investigation into what happened Sept. 11, 2001.

As of Jan. 4, a local group had gathered 1,240 of the approximately 1,350 signatures (5 percent of registered voters) required to put the question on the ballot, and a member of the group, Burlington attorney Frank Haddleton, expressed confidence Monday that they now have more than enough signatures.

The question would ask the Vermont congressional delegation to "demand a new, thorough, and truly independent forensic investigation" to answer "the many questions" the group says remain about what happened the day planes commandeered by terrorists smashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

In September, the council unanimously passed a resolution promising they would honor the Vermont tradition of allowing such questions if they garner enough signatures, "whether or not they like the questions or agree with the petitioners."
