Our Mission Statement
We want an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11.
To be fully effective this inquiry should be entirely independent with the right to call any witness and hear them on oath, and to demand full and immediate disclosure of all relevant records.
It should cover both the events of the day and the intelligence failures that we now know effectively cleared a path for the apparent 9/11 hijackers.
We know that this is unlikely in the current climate in Washington and NATO but things may change quite radically due to the geoploitical and economic crisis and the increasing reach of uncensored alternative websites.
There is scope for other types of inquiry, for instance one mandated by the UN General Assembly. (1)
Why 9/11 is still important
The 9/11 attacks were an unprecedented game changing event used to launch military aggression in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria, with a major war against Iran on the horizon. Even the Arab Spring has morphed into a further series of NATO military interventions.
The 9/11 event has led to the "war on terror" involving torture and assassination on a vast scale, the use of drones to kill civillians and the massive erosion of citizens rights in the NATO countries. The ruinous military expenditures have been a major factor in the economic crisis too. (2)
Most western politicians and the corporate news media were quick to endorse the official line and proclaim that 9/11 "changed everything" but the official story of the 9/11 attacks is uncertain and may even be entirely false.
We do not speculate about how or why 9/11 took place but we recognise there is a mountain of evidence that seems to contradict the official account. Most of this evidence has not been addressed by the 9/11 Commission or other official investigations.
Any inquiry should, in an even handed way and with no prior assumptions, look again into both the official Washington account of a conspiracy run by "Al Qaeda" and the various alternative accounts often described in the corporate media as "conspiracy theories". (3)
What we can do
As time goes by the psychological power of 9/11 has diminished and the public in the NATO countries is less prone to denial, while the alternative view has become mainstrewam in many places. Just to let people know that the official 9/11 story is unproven and dubious is an act of resistance which undermines the case for war and repression.
Evidence that no-one was aware of at the time is accumulating.

(1) The need for an Inquiry. We would support any investigation that takes all possibilities into account, whether authorised for instance by the UN General Assembly or by a fully independent grand jury led by an independent prosecutor with powers to penetrate the US military industrial complex.
Many experts including people involved in the official US government inquiry, have now expressed their doubts. The Chair and Vice Chair of the 9/11 Commission have gone on the record to say that the official inquiry, starved of funds, was set up to fail. Globally, many people now see 9/11 as some sort of an inside job, facilitated or even orchestrated by rogue elements in Washington to justify wars which, we now know, were already in the planning stage.
For this reason alone, there needs to be an inquiry independent of the US and NATO elite. 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned, calling Washington's official 9/11 investigation a "whitewash" and a "scandal".
(to see our comments of the possible enquiries, eg international panel, US special prosecutor, truth commission etc).
We are also concerned with the anthrax attacks which claimed to have been sent by Al Qaeda supporters but in reality came from a US military source. The culprits have never been clearly identified, and the attacks caused panic and a major distraction in Washington at a time when the first questions were beginning to emerge over the official 9/11 story.
In addition there is much concern that many first responders at Ground Zero are suffering from serious illnesses after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said wrongly the air was safe to work in.
(2) Still relevant. 9/11 is still as relevant today as it was in 2001. It is the justification for the unending "war on terror"; for the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in which hundreds of thousands of innocent people have died, and in which toxic weapons such as depleted uranium have been used; and for the wholesale erosion of our civil liberties and traditional freedoms. More generally, it enables governments to appeal to a sense that "we" are under attack from outside forces, distracting us from issues of corruption, mismanagement and global inequality.
(3) The evidence. What was originally passed off as intelligence failures at the FBI and CIA has turned out in recent inside revelations to be the result of a decision taken somewhere in the US secret state to suppress investigations into ther people who would later be identified officially as the 9/11 hijackers.
Many independent experts suspect at least one of the three collapsed buildings was demolished artificially while US government expertsd have conceded that WTC Building 7 fell for a period at free fall speed.
Spherical particles of iron and apparent nanothermite chips have been identified in the WTC dust.
