‘Be It Resolved . . .’

We received an email yesterday from the 9/11 Truth Action Project, tagged “NEWS FLASH.”

HEADLINE: “The U.S. Senate Calls for Declassification of ALL 9/11 Documents: Senate Resolution 610 Adopted Without Objection

FIRST PARAGRAPH: “At the end of September 2018, the United States Senate called for declassification of all ‘documents related to the events of September 11, 2001’ and ‘that the survivors, the families of the victims, and the people of the United States deserve answers about the events and circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon the United States.’ While non-binding, this sense-of-the-Senate resolution (S. Res, 610) places the United States Senate firmly in the position of supporting the call that many in the 9/11 Truth Movement have sought for years.”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of Connecticut, sponsored the measure, which was cosponsored by Senators Cornyn of Texas, Schumer and Gillibrand of New York, Murphy of Connecticut, Menendez and Booker of New Jersey, Markey of Massachusetts, Rubio of Florida, and Sanders of Vermont.

The New York Times and the Washington Post did not report on the Sept. 26 event, nor did The Associated Press. The Hartford Courant, in Blumenthal’s own state, had related stories in April and July, here and here.

Blumenthal was first elected to the Senate in 2010. Previously, he served as U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut from 1977 to 1981. He served successively as a Connecticut state representative and a state senator from 1985 to 1991, and as Connecticut’s attorney general from 1991 to 2011.
