Would you like to see the Attorney General asked about appointing a special prosecutor? Well he’s testifying on Thursday afternoon before a subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee, and the subcommittee members all have phone numbers. A coalition of groups will be taking the occasion to deliver over a quarter million petition signatures to Eric Holder asking for a special prosecutor. The hearing will be webcast on the committee website: http://appropriations.house.gov

If you want to attend in person in Washington, D.C., it’s on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. in Rayburn 2359, a hearing of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, and Science.

After Downing Street, Democrats.com, ACLU, FireDogLake, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Moveon.org and others will deliver petitions to Holder asking for a special prosecutor. Sign here quick to have your name included! http://democrats.com/special-prosecutor-for-bush-war-crimes

Once you’ve signed the petition, please go here for the contact info of the subcommittee members: http://afterdowningstreet.org/node/41886

Phone as many of them as you have time to right now, and ask them to please ask the attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor. He has said that water boarding is torture. Top officials have authorized and sought to give pseudo-legal cover for water boarding. Our laws ban it, and the Convention Against Torture requires that we prosecute it.

Can you hear us now?

Editor’s Note:

Please know that 911truth.org immediately endorsed the call for a Special Prosecutor, although David Swanson of AfterDowningStreet.org told me directly he thinks it would be “counterproductive” to list our organizational endorsement. No matter. Our hundreds of thousands of readers are bigger than Mr. Swanson’s politically correct pettiness. Get on the phone, the computer or get to DC–DEMAND a prosecutor now. We can NOT allow torturers to walk around free in our name.

Since 2004, 911Truth.Org has educated the public about the suppressed realities of the September 11 attacks.

We worked with the 9/11 Families to pressure the Bush administration to convene an investigation into the deadliest attacks on US soil since Pearl Harbor. We attended many of the commission hearings and questioned commissioners and bird-dogged elected officials to get answers to the Unanswered Questions that remain so to this day.

We reported the contradictions, lies and omissions on the public record. 911Truth.Org staff have given hundreds of interviews on radio and mainstream network TV.

We cover a wide range of 9/11-related issues in publishing academic papers, original research, and opinion pieces.

We wish to thank our donors who have kept us on the web since 2004! We appreciate your continued support!

We continue to update the website to make the nearly 3000 articles easier to find, read and share. Thanks for visiting us!
