MY SILENCE CANNOT BE BOUGHT
by Beverly Eckert

"I've chosen to go to court rather than accept a payoff from the 9/11 victims compensation fund.

I want to know why two 110-story skyscrapers collapsed in less than two hours and why escape and rescue options were so limited.

I am suing because unlike other investigative avenues, including congressional hearings and the 9/11 commission, my lawsuit requires all testimony be given under oath and fully uses powers to compel evidence.
