Hello Sister citizens:

I posted some time ago, the statement of Mrs. Kleinberg, wherein she raised many questions:


And here is a very comprehensive timeline of the events leading up to 9/11/01 for you to peruse:


Here is a new article about currents efforts to suppress public access to the full report of the official commission investigating the tragedy.

Could it be that the Mr. Bush plans to play on the emotions regarding 9/11 in his bid for re(s)election and the truth could mess it up?


What about the plan to hold the Republican National Convention in NYC in September of 2004 quite near the anniversary of the tragedy; another corporate marketing tool?

Snips from the NY Times:

Republican officials said they chose New York over two competing cities, in part because of what they described as the enormous political and emotional symbolism that has become attached to the city since the terror attack ...

Roland W. Betts, … is a close friend of Mr. Bush. Mr. Betts said he directly pressed the events of Sept. 11 in lobbying for the convention with both Mr. Bush and Karl Rove, the president's senior political adviser. "What we focused on was that New York was the best background for the convention, growing out of the events of Sept. 11," Mr. Betts said... "The alternatives were inappropriate. Florida would have been all about the last election, and we would have to relive hanging chads."

Interesting, eh?...Joyce in the mts.

I've read about this.

I'm wondering what effect it would have if there was a large protest of the convention staged by relatives of the victims of 9/11.
