What will this petition / poll be used for?

We will : Show the results of this petition / poll to members of congress, and ask the same question of them.

We will : Post the responses that we receive from capital hill here on this page.

These are the responses we have received from Members of Congress :
US Representative Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) | YES

US Representative Major R. Owens (D-NY) | YES
Response by Congressman Major Owens: "I will support all fair and thorough investigations of all sectors, organizations and institutions that can be considered to have information that will shed some light into the disastrous events of September 11, 2001. We are still not clear on the matters leading up to the attacks, for example, were there indeed forewarnings and if so why were no necessary action taken? We, as a Nation, need a clear understanding from a political perspective in order to determine what hard-nosed, concrete steps we should take to force the danger of death and destruction by terrorism down to a minimum level, and to learn in what ways we as citizens can better protect ourselves by developing ways to question, monitor and if necessary, advocate for change in our protection, security and related services."

US Representative Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) | YES
Kerry Brooks, a Sanchez aide, stated the Congresswoman's position in these terms: As a member of the House Armed Services committee Rep. Sanchez understands that the safety of our armed service men and women and our national security as a whole must not be compromised. But also supports a thorough public investigation of the events leading up to the September 11th attacks that would include the executive branch.

Comrade X

At this point, you can no longer consider yourself an activist if you're avoiding the investigation into the cause of 9/11. You might as well admit that you have decided that going along with the main stream is more important than searching for the truth.

It looks as if the IMC network is trying to appease both sides. If the corporate/government controlled media accuses the IMC of lacking credibility because a story questioning the official 911 line apears on the front page, they can always just point the finger and say "it's not our story, we only provided a link to those nutty conspiracy theorists in Portland." If, on the othe hand, they're called to the carpet by those seeking the truth, they can fall back on the fact that they have at least put a link to the Portland stories on the front page.

As they say, the truth is always the first casualty.

Not Comrade X's Comrade

Look, I'm really getting tired of these flimsy conspiracy theories. Just because a theory sounds interesting in hindsight doesn't make it true.

Dogstar

So, perhaps, in your infinite maturity and wisdom, you'd tell us what it is about our conspiracy that makes it "flimsy" and why the "official" version of events is not. Please, come forward and do intellectual battle!

the FBI has spun the conspiracy theory 04.May.2002 00:37

come on "not comrade". . .

you want to call things flimsy. . .or conspiracy theory or other such. . .

do you dare actually have a debate about the evidence?

pleased do. . .i'll challenge anyone right here on the site, to a thorough discussion of all the evidence

and do remember, that the official story from the FBI is full of gaping holes and what you are really doing when you cry conspiracy theory or other some such. . .IS SAYING YOU BELIEVE THE FBI AND CIA EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE PROVIDED NO PROOF WHATSOEVER. . .they have provided a real conspiracy theory full of unfounded allegations, super terrorists who can evade all efforts to uncover a single piece of hard evidence (yet amazingly, the FBI still claims to know exactly who they are and what happened), wild 'facts' such as the miraculous passport that survives the plane crashing into the WTC, and the ensuing fireball hot enough to allegedly melt steel, and ends up on the ground a few blocks away virtually unscathed. . .and lo and behold, it belongs to the so called ringleader. . .wow, what good fortune

the FBI story is one of the biggest crock of shit conspiracy theories i have ever heard. . .and in a classic case of doublethink, anyone who dares to question it and inquire into what really is going on, is labeled a conspiracy theorist

anyone who believes that crap is in a state of heavy denial
