THIS is the movie which should be on broadcast television. The film is based on an incredibly detailed timeline of events, of all that preceded and followed 9/11/2001. The timeline was compiled by Paul Thompson of Cooperative Research. Thompson subsequently collaborated with the 9/11 survivor group, known as the Jersey Girls. This researcher and these widows of the victims of 9/11 are the heart of this film. (Click on the image above to watch the entire documentary on Google Video.)
From the 9/11 Press For Truth website:
“We felt the country was at risk from terrorists and from incompetence…and maybe worse.” —Lorie Van Auken, September 11th Widow
Following the attacks of September 11th, a small group of grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the event—including, to their amazement, President Bush. In ‘9/11 PRESS FOR TRUTH’, six of them, including three of the famous “Jersey Girls”, tell for the first time the powerful story of how they took on the greatest powers in Washington—and won!—compelling an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission fail in answering most of their questions.
Adapting Paul Thompson’s definitive Complete 9/11 Timeline (published by HarperCollins as ‘The Terror Timeline’), the filmmakers collaborate with documentary veterans Globalvision (‘WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception’, ‘Beyond JFK’) to stitch together rare overlooked news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin. As a result, a very different picture of 9/11 emerges, one that raises new and more pressing questions.
What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Osama Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape U.S. forces in Afghanistan? And what has been the reason for the deliberate obscuring of evidence for state sponsorship? Perhaps the most important one of all: Why, five years later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?
When will we have a truly independent investigation of the events of 9/11? Bush’s commission was filled with cronies and incompetents, all of whom were tainted with conflicts of interest. Whomever undertakes a REAL investigation must study the FACTS which are observable and verifiable, in order to ascertain the WHO and WHY of 9/11 — not just the HOW.
