This is the first Portland demonstration on the issue. The demonstration begins at the
Multnomah County Central Library at 3:00 PM, and will move to Pioneer
Courthouse Square at 5:00 PM. Later the group will move about town to
visit other September Eleventh gatherings. Participants will carry
graphics flashing questions like these:
Why did the Air Force fail to scramble jets and intercept the planes?
Why did the north tower, the tower hit first, fall second?
What caused the explosions heard just before the WTC towers collapsed?
Why did FBI HQ block investigations in Minneapolis, Phoenix & NY?
Why did building 7 collapse when it wasn't hit by a plane?
Who planned to profit from plunging airline stocks after 9/11?
Why were war plans for an assault on Al Qaeda drawn up on Sept. 9th?
Why does Florida Senator Bob Graham believe in a 9/11 cover-up?
Who met senior US Officials on 9/11 and also helped fund the attacks?
Why do 1 out of 2 NYrs believe US Officials "consciously" allowed the
attacks to occur?
Why wasn't the president immediately moved from his publicized location?
Why are the dimensions of the Pentagon hole smaller than the dimensions
of an airliner?
Why were warnings from numerous foreign intelligence agencies about an
impending attack ignored?
"These are some of the questions the commissions did not ask", says
9/11 Alliance spokesperson William Hofford, who leads a Thursday night
discussion circle on the issue. Says Hofford, "Connect the dots, and
another story begins to emerge."
Participants at Saturday's event will be prepared to elaborate on the
details for any curious citizen inclined to ask. Many of the
demonstrators are "graduates" of a 9/11 lecture series by Kurt
Leibezeit, a self-made expert on the subject, who teaches a sort of
September Eleventh 101 called Deconstructing the New Pearl Harbor. The
lectures will soon begin a third cycle.
"All the media ducks these questions," says participant George
Trinkaus. "The Internet has been burning up with this. The public wants
to know. But there's some ominous gentleman's agreement that has
reporters and editors scared of losing their jobs."
A poll conducted with New York City residents, from August 24 through
August 26, was released last week by Zogby and reports that "Half of
New Yorkers Believe US Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9-11
Attacks and "Consciously Failed" To Act."

His Grave." September 15, 7 PM.
