But, it was a stellar day for the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth, who stormed Congress demanding a new investigation. My enthusiasm for that is somewhat muted from knowing what happened in the JFK case. The first investigation (the Warren Commission) was mandated by LBJ to find for Oswald's sole guilt "to prevent World War III and the deaths of 100 million." But then 13 years later, a new investigation was begun with great hope and promise, stirred into action by the disturbing footage of the Zapruder film, showing Kennedy's head going back and to the left. Many people took that a sign that the shot came from the right front. But, the HSCA turned out to be just as corrupt as the WC. When numerous witnesses died summarily before they could testify, the HSCA did nothing. Didn't even look into the deaths. And then when the ARRB was formed in the 1990s, there was the same hope and promise. But, Doug Horne wound up quitting in disgust for what he saw: the same protect-the-government-at-any -cost attitude. So, would a second government investigation of 9/11 be any different? The only hope that it would be is if political hacks were excluded from it. 9/11 needs to be investigated by independent people with technical knowledge: architects, engineers, physicists, demolition experts, etc. But, they have to be outside the orbit of government. That's the only chance of getting an honest investigation.
But, here is what the Architects and Engineers sent around. They're calling for Congressional backers for the Bobby McIlvaine Act tore-investigate 9/11. Bobby was a 26 year old who died in the 9/11 catastrophe.
Today, September 11, 2017, we are launching the “Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act” — and we need your help to do it. In addition to our news conference and our visit to Capitol Hill, it will take thousands of you to help ensure that every member of Congress learns about the Bobby McIlvaine Act this week.
So if you’ll be near Washington, D.C., we invite you to come to the National Press Club for our 1:00 PM news conference (you can also help by sharing our media advisory). Then join us at the Capitol later in the afternoon and on September 12th as we deliver the Bobby McIlvaine package to all 535 members of Congress. Please email Congress@AE911Truth.org with “RSVP” in the subject line for details on when and where to meet.
If you won’t be near Washington, D.C. — and that’s most of you — we encourage you to visit the beta test of our soon-to-be-finished new website and do two things: (1) Watch the embedded livestream of our 1:00 PM news conference. (2) Then use our handy email program to send a pre-written letter to your congressperson and senators.
If you have enough time, you can even download the Bobby McIlvaine package and mail it to your three representatives, which we strongly encourage!
Our aim is to have at least 1,000 people contact their representatives by the end of the week. This way, we will put the Bobby McIlvaine Act on the radar of hundreds of congresspeople and senators during the time of year when it means the most. If you go with snail mail, please notify us at Congress@AE911Truth.org (for emails, we will know automatically how many are sent).
Of course, we all know that these efforts won’t bear fruit immediately and that a congressional investigation is only one of several avenues we must pursue. But if we are going to obtain a new investigation, we must put our stake in the ground today and begin rallying support for a message that millions of people can believe in. Our first goal, then, is to have the Act introduced within one year. With your support, we’re confident we can get there.
A Note about the New Website: As you’ll notice, the Bobby McIlvaine Act page is one of several pages we’re making available from our nearly-finished website. We’re a month or two away from unveiling the handsome new site in its entirety. So stay tuned!
