Venezuelan National Assembly calls for 9/11 Truth

Venezuela - 9/11 Investigation

The Venezuelan National Assembly is calling for an
explanation of what really happened on 9/11 on the
suspicion that the US government may be behind the
attacks.

It calls on the U.S. Congress to "demand that the
government of President Bush explain the
self-inflicted attack on the World Trade Center and
its victims, the supposed aircraft that crashed into
the Pentagon and the links between the bin Laden
family and the Bush family.''

The resolution, drafted by the deputy chairman of
the Foreign Affairs Commission, Carlos Escarrá, was
passed unanimously by the 167-member assembly, all
of them Chávez supporters after an opposition
boycott of elections last December.

Both Chávez and Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro have
referred several times in the past to suspicions
that the 9/11 attacks were planned by the Bush
administration, and have called for an inquiry.
But this appears to be the first time that the term
''self-inflicted attack'' has been used without
qualification.

Asked how the legislature had reached that
conclusion, Escarrá said that ''evidence and
testimonies'' had emerged in the United States and
that ''for the rest of the world, there is no longer
any question'' that 9/11 was not an al Qaeda
attack.

... they've already reached their conclusions why do they want an inquiry ?

Why an inquiry on 9/11? 23.Nov.2006 23:54

so the people of the U.S.A can get true answers to questions in which the corporate media and our 'representatives' are not interested (like, where was the USAF?)

Hopefully more countries will do the same 24.Nov.2006 13:44

Good for Venezuela's legislature. Finally, a country with some balls.

Do you really expect Congress to ever admit that 911 was an inside job ?
