Rep Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader, Cynthia Mackinney all want new 9/11 probe
Dissident Democrat congressman Dennis Kucinich is calling for a South African style 9/11 Truth Commission.
"Before the Congress adjourns, I will bring forth a new proposal for the establishment of a National Commission on Truth and Reconciliation, which will have the power to compel testimony and gather official documents to reveal to the American people not only the underlying deception which has divided us, but in that process of truth seeking set our nation on a path of reconciliation."
His statement cited the false links between 9/11 and Saddam Hussein's Iraq and did not openly challenge the official 9/11 "facts". However Kucinich has expressed strong scepticism over the 9/11 attacks on previous occasions, so it would appear the omission had more to do with meeting the editorial line of establishment media on the centre left like The Nation and the Huffington Post which have mostly given unqualified endorsement to the official 9/11 story.
Most US 9/11 sceptics nonetheless welcomed Kucinich's the call, arguing that a commission with full subpoena power would soon get to the facts.
The call for a new 9/11 enquiry was endorsed by Green candidate Cynthia Mackinney who promised that as President she would open all the files on 9/11. In addition, veteran populist Ralph Nader described the 9/11 Commission as "flawed, right from the get go... can you imagine an attack like that and the government didn't even want to have an inquiry?" he asked, referring to the two year's of campaigning by victim families which eventually led to the 9/11 Commission.
