For those who may not know, there is a brand new book out by Michael
Ruppert CROSSING THE RUBICON which names Dick Cheney as the principal
behind 9-11!  Yes, you are reading correctly.  I got the book at Talking
Leaves in Buffalo (it is also on Amazon as a high flyer, or more quickly
from ). It's 674 pages, extensively
footnoted from credible sourcing, with Ruppert adopting the approach of a
dedective who he was trying to solve a case. (The world still has no
prosecutions for 9-11.)

If you are looking for an analogy, it could be "who truly burned down the



Press Conference in Manhattan near 120 Broadway

Thursday, Oct. 28 at 2PM - Corner of Nassau and Cedar

Presidential candidates Ralph Nader, David Cobb and Michael Badnarik have
signed a petition of 100 prominent individuals calling for a new,
independent investigation into 9/11 events.

On Thursday, Oct. 28, at 2 pm, a coalition of 9/11 victim family members,
survivors and advocacy groups will deliver a formal complaint requesting a
new criminal investigation of 9/11 events to New York Attorney General
Eliot Spitzer outside the Equitable Building (at corner of Nassau and Cedar
Streets). We are urging you to participate.

The Complaint petitions the Attorney General to launch an independent
in-depth criminal and civil probe of significant 9/11 evidence and lines of
inquiry suggesting grave official misconduct including criminal negligence,
criminal facilitation, and accessorial abetment of murder, assault, insider
trading, obstruction of justice, and other violations of New York law.

The Complaint asks the Attorney General to exercise his powers to establish
accountability for crimes under New York State law and recover damages
incurred by state and local governments from corporations and individuals
whose conduct furthered the criminal conspiracy.

The Complainants, including victim family members Bill Dolye and Bob
McIlvaine both of whom lost their sons, maintain that few if any of these
charges or their bodies of supporting evidence were adequately explored or
even addressed by the 2002 Joint Intelligence Inquiry or the 9/11
Commission which released its final report last July.

"For many New Yorkers, Attorney General Spitzer is the last hope for
establishing the truth about what happened on 9/11 and enforcing the law,"
noted David Kubiak, a spokesperson for the group. "Because administration
officials have sought to federalize all 9/11 inquiries and classify
evidence under the 'state secrets' doctrine to preempt local probes and
obstruct the Kean Commission, three years after the tragedy there still has
been no comprehensive, credible independent investigation completed. As the
elected official ultimately responsible for public safety and criminal law
enforcement in New York, the Attorney General clearly has jurisdiction here
if he chooses to assert it. Given the scale of 9/11 carnage and the
subsequent illnesses and incalculable damages suffered by New York and
evidence of cover-up, his constituents are now telling him that he must.
Fifteen New York legislators have even stepped up to endorse this demand so
we're at a very remarkable choice point in 9/11 history."

Although the Complaint and its detailed appendices are based upon years of
investigative journalism and independent research, their crystallization
into legal form was triggered by three recent events:

1) the failure of the Kean Commission Report to provide a credible
explanation of the 9/11 tragedies, to hold anyone accountable, or answer
most of the questions posed by the 9/11 Family Steering Committee *;

2) the August 31st Zogby 9/11 poll** which showed that nearly half of NYC
citizens believe government officials were "consciously" complicit in the
attacks, and that two-thirds want a new investigation; and

3) the testimony and evidence put forth at the September 9, 2004 9/11
Citizens' Commission hearings in Manhattan, organized by the watchdog and
activist groups 9/11 CitizensWatch and

The Complaint is also foreshadowed in today's release of the "9/11
Statement," a call for trenchant new investigations signed by over 100
American opinion leaders including presidential candidates Nader, Badnarik
and Cobb as well as 50 supportive 9/11 families.

Copies of the "9/11 Statement" and the Complaint will be available one half
hour prior to the 2:00 PM Thursday press conference at the northwest corner
of Cedar and Nassau Streets (NE corner of Equitable Building). The 9/11
Statement is posted at The Spitzer Complaint will
be posted at following the Thursday press conference.
Further details to follow.
