SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Nobel Peace Prize nominee
Dr. David Ray Griffin’s 2009 book, “Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive?”
presented compelling evidence that bin Laden died in December 2001 — prompting
a BBC documentary of the same name.

Griffin, founder of the soon to be announced 9/11 Consensus Panel, and named
among the New Statesman’s “50 People Who Matter Today,” today released
the following statement:

President Obama, speaking of the operation to kill Osama bin Laden, said: “Justice
has been done.”

It has been widely assumed that, if bin Laden is now dead, the person most
responsible for the 9/11 attacks has been brought to justice. But the US government
has never provided evidence that the attacks were carried out by bin Laden and
his al-Qaeda organization.

In September 2001, Secretary of State Colin Powell promised to provide this
evidence, but the next day recanted, saying “most of [the evidence] is
classified.”

In October, Prime Minister Tony Blair provided evidence that bin Laden and
al-Qaeda planned and executed the 9/11 attacks. But he added:

“This document does not purport to provide a prosecutable case against
Osama Bin Laden in a court of law.”

The FBI’s acts that made bin Laden a “Most Wanted Terrorist” does
not include the 9/11 attacks. The FBI’s chief of investigative publicity explained:
“The FBI has been no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”

A December 2001 video shows a heavy-set Osama bin Laden boasting about the
attacks. But doubts were raised by experts, including Duke University’s Professor
Bruce Lawrence, calling the video “bogus.”

Could al-Qaeda have carried out the attacks?

The Washington Post reported that the plane hitting the Pentagon was maneuvered
“with extraordinary skill,” but the New York Times called the alleged
pilot, Hani Hanjour, “A Trainee Noted for Incompetence.”

The Twin Towers allegedly fell entirely because of airliner impacts, gravity,
and jet-fuel fires — there were no explosives.

But 118 members of the FDNY reported massive explosions going off in the Towers.

Scientists for 9/11 Truth views the rapid, symmetrical, straight-down collapses
of the Towers and nearby WTC 7 as consistent only with controlled demolition
(as documented in my 2009 book, “The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade
Center 7”).

And 1500 members of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth agree: The 9/11
attacks were not the work of al-Qaeda.

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.
