Organization: http://www.9/11  CitizensWatch

Please see below a recent CitizensWatch exchange with Bill Johnstone, staff member of the National Commission. We've also got them looking into the insider trading issue which had not been on their publicized lines of inquiry to pursue as part of their mandate.

So, we at CitizensWatch we are on their case, but it's just John Judge and me right now. Whether or not it makes a difference may depend upon how many of you join us in putting pressure on the commission by persistance in asking the key questions, pointing out inconsistancies, outright lies, etc. and by simply writing about the process so that more more people are paying attention.

My own gut says making a breakthough may ultimately depend upon the emergence of one or more whistleblowers who are terrified about coming forward. It may well be up to us to create an environment or an opportunity for them to step forward with a smoking gun or at least something which puts the heat on the Administration or the National Commission.

The anticipated 'From the Wilderness' ad placement in 12 major markets around the U.S. could go a long way toward creating that environment. Perhaps it's not too late to encourage whistleblowers to come forth in that ad. Or others to follow?

I also have heard that WBAI (Pacifica station in NYC) has agreed to sponsor a major Public Hearing on 9/11 in the Big Apple. There is one being planned simultaneous to it in Philly. All for July 2nd so there is not much time. But if there were others that could be pulled together by then and the ads come out around that time (if we are lucky) then maybe we'll begin to seriously weaken the dike and increase the chances whistleblowers will come forward.

Also, the Germans have done a TV documentary: "Aktenzeichen 11.9. ungelöst" (File 9/11 unsolved). It features UQ founders, myself, Catherine Austin Fitts, Tom Flocco in addition to researcher Allan Duncan. Nico Haupt was also interviewed.

More informations here:

It will be broadcasted on Friday, June 20th, 2003, 23.00 h MEST Middle European Summertime in the WDR (Westdeutsche Rundfunk, see website above). It will be on their equivalent of our PBS. There will probably be an international version of the film in the next months.

Anyone have any other ideas or suggestions for strategy that will lead to a major breakthrough? Perhaps it's time for some major press conferences bi-coastally? There are to be about 4 or 5 more public hearings as I understand it.

We'll be upgrading our site shortly so we hope to have more dialogue and on-going documentation of our work up soon there.

Best regards,

thanks kyle. i am passing this on to the norad team to get you an answer to
your question.
