"A new book by 9/11 Commission co-chairmen Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton outlines repeated misstatements by the Pentagon and the Federal Aviation Administration, including the timelines of Flights 77 and 93. The fact that the government would...perpetuate the lie suggests that we need a full investigation of what is going on."

-- CNN News, August 9, 2006 (part of the two-page 9/11 timeline below)

Dear friends,

On September 11, 2001, thousands of innocent people died as a result of the secret plans of a small group intent on spreading fear and violence in the world. Though the 9/11 Commission issued a full investigative report in 2004, the two ranking members of the Commission have since revealed major deceptions not covered in their report. The concise list of media statements below (links provided for verifiability) raise many more questions about that fateful day. Though this information may be disturbing, we feel it is absolutely critical for caring people of the world to consider the possibility that 9/11 may not be what it seemed. By working together to spread the word and bring the truth out, we can strengthen democracy and build a brighter future for us all.

With best wishes,
Fred Burks for PEERS and the WantToKnow.info Team Former language interpreter for Presidents Bush and Clinton
