LA Citizens Grand Jury Condemns US Government Roll In 911 And Subsequent CoverupSees US 'Treasonous Inside Cabal' As Responsible For 911 Terror Attacks
Finds Official Story 'Impossible,
On Multiple FrontsDemands Immediate Release Of CIA Inspector General's Report,
Task Force And War Game Records,
Pentagon Evidence Seized By FBI And Suppressed 911 Report Of 'Broadly Inaccurate Accounts
By Several Civil And Military Officials'
LOS ANGELES - In findings issued today, the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury condemned the 9/11 Commission's
official version of the events of September 11, 2001 as "physically impossible, untenable, contradictory, implausible and
fraudulent" and called for the release of several documents specifically naming officials responsible for 9/11, being withheld
until after the election.
Citing evidence that at least 8 of the 19 alleged suicide hijackers reported themselves alive
after 9/11, that the World Trade Center Towers and Building 7 came down not from fires from the planes but controlled demolition
explosives which require weeks to prepare, and Administration managed "war games" (including a field training exercise scenario
covering multiple hijackings and a plane going into a building) that were actually happening on 9/11 as causing air traffic
controller confusion & lack of fighter response, the nation's first Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11 unabashedly concluded
9/11 was "an inside job" that demands "legal prosecution, civil liability and political condemnation" around the world.
to the nation's first Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11, the US government must immediately release the CIA Inspector General's
report on 9/11, which assigns blame to certain high level officials but whose release is being suppressed by new CIA Director
Porter Goss until after the election, according to published reports. Goss is reported to have been having breakfast on the
morning of 9/11 with the Pakistani ISI "money man" himself, General Mahmud Ahmed, who had wired $100,000 to the alleged head-hijacker
LA's Citizens' Grand Jury also issued a demand that the records of the Vice-President's Counter-Terrorism
Task Force and preparation and co-ordination of the emergency exercises/war games the Vice President was overseeing on 9/11
be released as they may well have contributed to the lack of fighter response to the hijackings.
In addition, the Citizens'
Grand Jury demanded that the FBI release all surveillance videotape and related evidence being withheld bearing on the flying
object which hit the Pentagon on the morning of 9/11. Evidence presented to the Jury suggested that due to the absence of
debris from a 60-ton 757, limited damage to the Pentagon, an "implausible" flight pattern and lack of skill of the alleged
Arab hijacker pilot, possibly a missile or a remote controlled drone actually hit the Pentagon instead of American flight
# 77 which was last tracked over Ohio by air traffic controllers. The Jury chose to delay a finding on the Pentagon, pending
further deliberation of eye witness reports and surveillance documentation.
Acknowledging vast resources and unacknowledged
evidence ignored by the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report, the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury rejected the official version
of 9/11 labeling it "a propaganda fabrication designed to favor the unleashing of aggressive war, while hiding the activity
of a treasonous cabal of high-level elected and appointed civilian U.S. government and military officials, and private and/or
contracted third parties and rogue agents under their known or unknown direction yet to be determined who both actively prepared,
promoted, organized, assisted, fomented, and/or passively favored the September 11 attacks and supported the cover-up that
The Citizens' Grand Jury, which had begun its deliberations on Saturday, October 23 with a large public
meeting in the Bob Hope Patriotic Hall near the Los Angeles Civic Center, refuted the claims of the 9/11 Commission Report
on several detailed points. They decided to evaluate the attacks as a crime by considering "motive, means and opportunity"
which on several counts were beyond what Osama bin Laden and 19 suicide hijackers could have accomplished unaided. Noting
in particular the lack of fighter response for 1 hour and 40 minutes when "67 times in the year prior to 9/11 by following
established procedures when planes went out of communication or off course, the system worked perfectly" and fighter planes
were usually scrambled within 15 minutes.
In addition, they noted the fate of WTC building 7, a 47-story building housing
the DOD, IRS and Security and Exchange Commission, among others, which has generally been ignored in press reports. At 5:20
pm on 9/11, it collapsed into its own footprint - characteristic of a controlled demolition - without being hit by a plane
or debris from the falling Towers and with minimal fires that allegedly could have been easily extinguished. Jurors viewed
a video of the WTC Leaser, Larry Silverstein, who said he and the fire department in the afternoon of 9/11 agreed to "pull
it" which is a controlled demolitions industry phrase that means to demolish through the use of pre-placed explosives. They
concluded the liklihood of a controlled demolition of WTC7 was beyond what Osama bin Laden and 19 hijackers could have done
unaided, which further suggested 9/11 was an inside job.
The Citizens' Grand Jury is composed of 25 average Americans
of diverse ethnic, national, religious and professional backgrounds - including a 9/11 family member, a private investigator,
a medical doctor, a college student, a therapist, an educator, the director of personnel and training for a major union, an
author on the holocaust, and a retired forensic investigator. They issued today's findings after several days of consideration
on the language of the findings, adding extensive demands for withheld evidence.
The Citizens' Grand Jury heard evidentiary
presentations from 9/11 researchers Jim Hoffman and Don Paul, authors of Waking Up From Our Nightmare: The 9/11 Crimes in
New York City, Webster Tarpley, author of George Bush: An Unauthorized Biography and the upcoming 911 Synthetic Terror: Made
in the USA and DOD's Barbara Honegger, former White House policy analyst and author of the October Surprise who broke the
story of the "numerous emergency response exercises/'war games' that have been officially acknowledged to have been carried
out on the morning of September 11, 2001 under the various directions of Vice-President Cheney, the Pentagon/Joint Chiefs
of Staff, NORAD (Air Force), the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO, staffed mainly by Air Force/military and CIA personnel),
and FEMA" featured in depth in Michael Ruppert's best selling Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at
the End of the Age of Oil.
The Grand Jury also viewed photographs and film clips including Senator Mark Dayton testifying
before a Senate committee reviewing with Commissioners Kean and Hamilton NORAD's "lies" regarding the 9/11 timeline calling
for accountability for the "unbelievable negligence". They also viewed taped and/or written testimony from David Ray Griffin,
author of The New Pearl Harbor on the 9/11 Commission's Omissions, Mike Ruppert summarizing the war games excerpted from the
Canadian best-selling documentary with Barry Zwicker, The Great Conspiracy, and researchers Nafeez Ahmed, author of The War
on Freedom: How and Why America Was Attacked Sept. 11, 2001 and Paul Thompson, author of The 911 Terror Timeline.
findings of the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury represent the most detailed and thorough refutation of the US government's
official account of what allegedly happened on 9/11 ever formally issued by a people's fact-finding body. Formal presentation
of Findings and References will follow their next deliberation scheduled for mid-November where they will address other questions,
including specific responsibilities of US government officials and persons in the private sector pivotal to the events of
"It is the hardest thing in the world to confront," explained Citizens' Grand Jury convener, Lynn Pentz, "that
members of our own government are responsible for perjury, treason and mass murder of their own citizens as well as citizens
from 82 other nations around the world.
"Given our political and judicial systems have refused to deal with the reality
of 9/11," she explained, "We the People must now be responsible for our representatives' lies, their war on our freedoms,
their terrorizing tactics, the death and destruction they are waging in our names, their bankrupting of our nation with their
endless war for profit and global hegemony, and for our allowing the increasing rise of a police state here in America - all
rationalized by the official story of 9/11 and the politicians and media who have exploited it. The Citizens' Grand Jury has
shown we are way past begging for the unanswered questions to be answered. We know a lot of the answers and they are not pretty."
Pentz is a well-known southern California activist of the international 9/11 truth movement, and co-founder of 911TruthLA.us,
the host organization of the LA Citizens' Grand Jury. Ms. Pentz participated in both the International Citizen's Inquiries
in San Francisco and Toronto and attended the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Hearings in New York which she declared were "appalling
to any citizen committed to finding the truth and assuring accountability for what actually happened".
well-verified evidence to the 9/11 Commissioners of the Administration's bogus Orange alerts, Silverstein's ordering the destruction
of WTC7 which "housed the People's business" (ie: 200 open investigations of securities fraud), and evidence that many of
the alleged hijackers were still alive after 9/11, Pentz says, "she then knew that they knew and chose to cover up the truth
instead of reveal it."
She even showed two Commissioners, FBI Director Robert Mueller's statement to CNN that there
is "no legal proof to prove the identities of the suicidal hijackers" and his April 19, 2002 admission, "In our investigation,
we have not uncovered a single piece of paper - either here in the United States or in the treasure trove of information that
has turned in Afghanistan and elsewhere - that mention any suspect of the September 11th plot."
"None of this (and
so much other) evidence, and none of the connecting of the obvious dots that point to government complicity, were even referred
to in the Commission's Report. So, its now incumbent on the People to take back their government by not settling until the
real perpetrators are held accountable and the systems that allow such abuses have real citizen oversight so these egregious
abuses of public trust cannot happen again."
Several such efforts are happening nationally. Activists in New York have
just filed a petition with state Attorney General, Elliott Spitzer, with an unprecedented Citizens' Complaint Demanding a
Criminal Inquiry into the 9/11 Crimes as part of their "Summer of Truth" campaign. San Francisco's Stanley Hilton represents
400 9/11 family members in a suit charging government complicity in the events of 9/11. Grass roots demonstrations are continuing
and legal actions are beginning to move forward.
According to Webster Tarpley, a key witness in the proceedings, "With
today's release of findings, the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury has taken a giant step beyond the unanswered questions of
9/11, towards positive determinations of what really happened and who was responsible. On the eve of the US Presidential elections,
these findings represent a qualitatively new phase in the people's campaign against the US government's Big Lies about 9/11."
call on citizens here and around the world to have your own Citizens' Grand Juries, review the evidence and decide for yourselves",
said Ms. Pentz. "Then, we must all, demand our governments hold the real perpetrators of 9/11 criminally, civilly and politically
responsible. In the meantime, we must do the hard work of confronting 'the enemy is us' and not settle until we have truly

Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury Preliminary Findings
Given the failure of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security (May 2002),
the House-Senate Joint Intelligence Community Investigation (December 2002), and the United Kingdom Government dossier (October2001),
the Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the Kean-Hamilton 9/11
Commission Report (July 2004), to establish the truth and create accountability about the tragic events of September 11, 2001,
the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury convened on October 23, 2004 in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, USA and
hereby returns the following findings on October 31, 2004:
I. That the official account of the events of September 11, 2001 is physically
impossible, untenable, contradictory, fraudulent, and ignores vast bodies of relevant and pertinent evidence. It must, therefore,
be rejected as a propaganda fabrication designed to favor the unleashing of aggressive war, while hiding the activity of a
treasonous cabal of high-level elected and appointed civilian U.S. government and military officials, and private and/or contracted
third parties and rogue agents under their known or unknown direction yet to be determined who both actively prepared, promoted,
organized, assisted, fomented, and/or passively favored the September 11 attacks and supported the cover-up that followed.
II. Concerning the official story elaborated by the 9/11 Keane Commission
Report of July 2004, the UK Government dossier of October 2001, and statements by US and UK government officials and echoed
by the mainstream media, we find:
A. That given significant evidence exists that as many as eight of the names of the alleged hijackers
identified by the FBI shortly after the attacks, are the names of individuals who have publicly claimed to still be alive
after 9/11, and the Government has not proven that ANY of the 19 names of the alleged hijackers were on any of the flight
manifests of any of the four planes, and no physical evidence of any of their bodies' remains have been reported found at
any of the attack sites, evidence linking the specific identities to the incidents appears - at best - planted to assure association
but implausible; the government's assertion that the alleged 19 hijackers operated without being detected by official surveillance
is untenable, and evidence is strong that the alleged hijackers - whatever their identities and whatever their involvement
- acted in coordination with a faction within the government itself. The alleged hijackers were, therefore, in all probability,
expendable double agents and/or patsies.
B. The government's assertion that the four supposedly hijacked airliners were taken over and piloted
by the four accused hijackers is highly implausible. The planes were in all probability guided to their targets by some form
of remote access or remote control.
C. The government's assertion that the failures of air defense were caused by the fog of war is
absurd. Air defense on 9/11/2001 was in all probability intentionally sabotaged by an Inside Cabal of treasonous high-level
civilian government and military officials who intended the actual hijack alerts to be initially confused with at least five
emergency response exercises going on that morning.
D. The government's assertion that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed as a result
of the impact of aircraft and of the subsequent fire is physically impossible. The fall of the Towers cannot be explained
without the hypothesis of a controlled demolition by some form of explosion.
E. The government's assertion that World Trade Center 7 collapsed at 5:20 PM EDT on September 11
purely as a result of fire is physically impossible, ignores the taped admission of Leaser Larry Silverstein that he and the
fire department agreed to "pull it" and given it collapsed into its footprint in the manner of a controlled demolition that
takes weeks to prepare further suggests an "inside job".
F. The government's assertion that United Flight 93 crashed because of actions by the hijackers
or because of a struggle in the cockpit is implausible. All evidence points to the hypothesis that it was shot down by a US
military aircraft and/or by the detonation of an onboard bomb.
G. The government's inordinate delay in the establishment of a Commission to investigate the events
of 9/11, their subsequent omission of significant evidence and refusal to address accountability; its refusal to investigate
insider trading of American Airlines and United Airlines put options; the wholesale seizure and destruction of evidence, the
systematic intimidation of witnesses by the FBI, and a series of other incidents point unmistakably to an attempted cover-up
on the part of certain factions of the US government and establishment.
H. The dossier issued by the Government of the United Kingdom and the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission
Report should be seen as cover-ups and, therefore, as accessories-after-the-fact.
I. Given that certain individuals and institutions did significantly profit from the events of
9/11 and the ensuing "endless war on terror" that followed, and individuals who failed to do their appointed jobs, demonstrated
significant incompetence and/or obstructed justice were not held accountable after gross failures; does hereby reflect motives
for the crimes of 9/11, and they should be criminally investigated, held accountable for civil liability and politically condemned.
III. We the People, acting through the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury,
hereby demand the following seven key pieces of evidence:
A. The FBI, National Reconnaissance Office and all other agencies of the US federal government
immediately release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations, the videotapes and satellite imagery
shot between 9 AM and 12 Noon Eastern Daylight Time on September 11, 2001 by all surveillance cameras within two miles of
the Pentagon and by any and all surveillance satellites bearing on the same area, including but not limited to the videotapes
shot by cameras at all gas stations and the Sheraton Washington Hotel. These tapes were seized by the FBI on or shortly after
9/11, and only 5 frames of one tape have been made available to the public.
B. The Report on Responsibility for 9/11 issued by the Inspector General of the Central Intelligence
Agency and currently suppressed by CIA Director Porter Goss at the behest of the Administration be immediately released in
full to the public, with no redactions, omissions, alterations, or deletions.
C. Any and all documents generated by and in relation to the entity variously referred to as The
Office of National Preparedness (ONP) and/or The Office of National Preparedness "Counter-Terrorism Task Force" created by
George W. Bush by Presidential Order on May 8, 2001, and overseen by Vice President Richard Cheney, be immediately released
and published in full, including the full text and any secret protocols of that Presidential Order with no redactions, omissions,
deletions, or alterations. The Citizens' Grand Jury demands the results of a complete and thorough search of the files of
all 46 federal agencies, including but not limited to the Office of National Preparedness, Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA), the CIA, NORAD, the NRO, and the Department of Defense, whose Counter-Terrorism Preparedness and Consequence Management
Activities Pertaining to Domestic (on U.S. territory) Terror Attacks, which, according to press reports, were made subject
to oversight and coordination by Vice President Cheney under the auspices of the above named Presidential Order; that all
of these agencies and any other(s) also overseen by Vice President Cheney under the May 8, 2001 Presidential Order release
all logs, documents, and other records relevant to the said Cheney "Counter-Terrorism Task Force." This demand specifically
also includes the full and un-redacted text of all drafts as well as any final report of the Cheney "Counter-Terrorism Task
Force" which, according to press accounts, was scheduled to be completed and delivered on or about October 1, 2001.
D. All US federal government agencies release any and all documents, records, logs, and all other
information regarding any and all war games, drills, emergency response exercises, maneuvers and related activities either
held on and/or planned in advance for September 11, 2001 and the week before and after that date, be they headquarters, staff,
computer and/or other simulation, field training, or live-fly exercises, pertaining to any and all exercises taking place
on or about September 11, 2001, or in the time immediately previous and/or subsequent to that date, including but not limited

7. Drill at the National Reconnaissance Office, Chantilly VA
E. The Justice Department immediately release and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions,
or alterations the 60-70 page monograph Supplement to the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report produced by the Commission's
investigators, which has been withheld for two months by Attorney General Ashcroft's Justice Department, dealing with the
"movements of the hijacked airliners and the response or lack of response of the government" and "revisits other subjects
in the Commission's final report of July - telephone calls made from the hijacked airplanes, airline security and orders issued
that morning by President Bush and VP Dick Cheney""also finds shortcomings in the Transportation Security Administration".
First revealed in the New York Times Oct. 31, 2004, the Commission has drawn from this "unpublished part of the inquiry and
quietly asked inspector generals at the Departments of Defense & Transportation to review what it had determined were
broadly inaccurate accounts provided by several civil and military officials about efforts to track and chase the hijacked
aircraft on September 11".
F. The Inspector Generals of the Departments of Defense and Transportation immediately release
and publish in full, with no redactions, omissions, or alterations' their research and findings regarding the 60-70 page Supplement
to the 9/11 Kean-Hamilton Commission Report for, as David Barnes, spokesperson with the Dept of Transportation said, "if the
reviews found wrongdoing, the Inspector General could recommend administrative penalties or ask federal prosecutors to begin
a criminal investigation".
G. The FBI, FAA, NORAD and the Dept of Transportation release and publish in full, with no redactions,
omissions, or alterations the contents of all black boxes retrieved from the four crash sites of September 11, 2001 and all
records of ground-to-cockpit communications of the allegedly hijacked American Airlines flights #11 and #77 and United Airlines
flights # 93 and #175.
IV. Henceforth, the tragedies of September 11, 2001 and the ensuing anthrax
attacks be related to as crimes where motive, means and opportunity be considered and appropriate criminal, civil and political
penalties be pursued commensurate with the preponderance of evidence of perjury, treason, mass murder, and high crimes against
humanity, where appropriate.
V. An Independent International Truth Commission should be quickly convened
and empanelled to refute the fabrications, falsifications, omissions, and distortions of the Final Report of the National
Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States also known as the Kean-Hamilton 9/11 Commission Report, and to establish
the evidentiary basis for a truthful, objective, and accurate account of those events that inflicted death and injury to citizens
of 83 countries on September 11, 2001 and have been used to justify an illegal war on a sovereign nation, Iraq, and on Afghanistan.
therefore, call upon statesmen, thinkers, journalists, investigators, artists, scientists, jurists, academics, humanitarians,
religious leaders, activists and other eminent personalities from around the world to form an Independent International Truth
Commission dedicated to truth, accountability, re-examination of lost liberties justified by the official story of 9/11 and
further intending to prevent unproven assertions about 9-11 from moving the world ever closer to "endless war". This Independent
International Truth Commission should be convened by the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on 9/11, the presenters to the Citizens'
Grand Jury, and its conveners, 911TruthLA.us, in collaboration with concerned citizens around the world at various sites internationally,
as yet to be determined.
VI. We the People, expressing as the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on
9/11, its Presenters and Conveners, do hereby agree to re-convene to review further sworn testimony and evidence to determine
if sufficient evidence exists of probable cause to indict specific individuals of the crimes on and cover-up surrounding September
11, 2001 and to publish its findings; and do further hereby encourage Citizens' Grand Juries to be formed throughout the world
to demand truth and accountability that will lead to re-claiming liberties and stopping the "endless war on terror" rationalized
by the events of September 11, 2001.
The draft text of this indictment was presented and agreed to by the
Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury on October 23, 2004; modified in the spirit of thoroughness and clarification from October
24-31, 2004 and approved by members of the Los Angeles Citizens' Grand Jury, the Presenters and Conveners on or before October
