Congress in Focus

“The suspects are still at large,” writes David Meiswinkle of the Lawwyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry about the perpetrators of the anthrax attacks. In a year’s-end letter asking for funds (quoted just below) he reminds readers the Committee has petitioned Congress to investigate the attacks.

“Shortly after the  9/11 attacks, anthrax sent in the mail killed five individuals, injured 17, and targeted two US Senators for assassination. Recently, the Lawyers’ Committee completed their investigation into these anthrax attacks and submitted to Congress a 76-page Petition with 69 Exhibits  requesting a new anthrax  investigation. The Lawyers’ Committee found that the FBI’s investigation was greatly flawed and deceptive, an innocent man appears to have been scapegoated and blamed for the crimes and more likely suspects not considered. There is a conflict of interest for the FBI/Justice Department to investigate itself. The suspects are still at large. Congress needs to get involved and address these crimes. Any donation will help continue this investigation and others related to the crimes of 9/11.

“Opinion polls show many believe important questions raised after the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001, have not been addressed. Excessive government secrecy contributes to a growing loss of trust in our institutions and undermines democracy. The Lawyers’ Committee pursues government accountability, including release of classified and other key documents through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as doing investigations which gather evidence for Grand Jury Petition submissions and  for strategic litigation to create the transparency required to restore a trustworthy democracy.”

Meiswinkle, president of the Lawyers’ Committee, expands on the letter in this SHORT VIDEO message. It contains a GoFundMe link for those so inclined to donate to the organization’s year-end appeal. In it he reminds viewers that “the [antrax] killers have never been apprehended.” He notes that the New York Times and the Washington Post have editorialized strongly in favor of an independent investigation.
