9.11 investigation

We demand a 9.11 investigation !! Rally in Eugene on Friday, May 24

Friday, 5:00 p.m., Federal Building in Eugene, Oregon: We demand a 9.11 investigation !!
Last Friday, nine of us had a rally at the Federal Building. This rally was called in response to the mainstream media stories about the Bush Administration ignoring warnings about Sept. 11.

Great coverage of the rally was featured on portland indymedia:
 http://portland.indymedia.org/archive/features/2002/05/2002-05.html#3744

Two things came out of the rally:
1) a signature campaign to urge our congressional delegation to start an investigation into 9.11 ( See:  http://portland.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=11065&group=webcast )
2) a desire for another rally, this Friday

So this is a call for another rally, this Friday, at 5:00 p.m., at the Federal Building again.

I suggest we concentrate again on The Need For A 9.11 Investigation. This is an issue that crosses left/right ideological divides. Questions about 9.11 have been coming from "the right" and "the left" for months, and from non-ideological points in between (i.e., Mike Ruppert,  http://www.copvcia.com). One can be a traditionally patriotic (re., pro-war) American and still want an investigation. So, this is a topic where we can appeal to many kinds of people, and try to break up the superficial political divisions that keep us under the control of the Corporate Ruling Elite.

These are just my ideas. I also don't like political demonstrations where people are asked to move along or stand across the street because their sign is not "on message". (I've seen this before.)

This guy has got to be joking about pro-War "Patriots" joining in a call for an "investigation" into 9-11.

The only way these Right Wingers and other "Patriots" will support an investigation is one in which they are able to control, manipulate, and provide cover for the Bush Regime et al.

If the truth is established that the Bush Regime not only knew about but supported and sponsored the 9-11 attacks, there will be hell to pay for the Right Wing in America.

They know it and will do everything to lie, spin, and spew disinformation to cover their asses.

A favorite tactic of the Right Wing is to try to infiltrate the Left with pretty sounding lies about being "non-ideological," or transcending Left/Right ideology in a common cause, blah, blah...

All of these phrases are disingenous lies designed to coopt and hijack any movement which will hold them and their bloodthirsty leaders such as Bush guilty for all the crimes they've committed.

IF THE RIGHT WING IS REALLY INTERESTED IN BEING NON-IDEOLOGICAL OR NONPARTISAN, WHY DON'T THEY ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT IT IS THE BUSH REGIME AND THE RIGHT WING IN GENERAL WHO ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE BENEFITTED FROM THE ATTACKS, AND THUS HAVE THE MOTIVATION TO HAVE CAUSED OR INITATED THEM.

ENRON-Bush's good ex-pal Ken Lay is major campaign donor,
HALLIBURTON-slicky Dick's previous employer,
CHEVRON-the Condo Rice old boardroom,
UNOCAL-the Afghan gas pipeline developer & boss to Hamid Karzai, Bush's appointee to be the "interim leader"

With all the above OIL connections, is there still any doubt that this Afghan War of Terror launched by the illegal W cabal is greased by the most massive oil slick since the Gulf War?

All I can say is:

1,2,3,4, We won't fight an Oilman's War,
5,6,7,8, Usama's Bush's Endearing Mate!
