President Bush has offered to meet privately

You said, "President Bush has offered to meet privately with Chairman Kean and Vice Chair Hamilton, but prefers not to meet with all 10 Commissioners. We hope the President will reconsider."

No, reconsideration is unacceptable, because it will never happen, and he is still dictating to the Commission. Mr. Bush has thwarted every investigation thus far. This was the most horrific tragedy on our soil in American history, yet Mr. Bush refuses to cooperate with the 9-11 commission, and set his own rules and agenda -- Why???

Where's the evidence Osama was involved, he promised? It was a breach of National Security to publicly announce Osama was hiding in Pakistan, apparently giving him plenty of time to escape, but he won't furnish his "Morning Reports" to the Commission? Why did he sign W-199-I to stop the FBI investigation of 9-11, shown on the BBC, but not in America? What is he hiding?

He restricted his testimony to only two members of the commission Messrs. Kean and Hamilton (least critical of 9-11), unlike Clinton who testified in public. Mr. Bush will not be sworn in, a tape recorder is not to be used, or transcripts made. This gives Mr. Bush plausible deniability so he can't be charged with lying as was Clinton -- there's no proof! How is that misconstrued to mean "full access"? It appears to be a sham.

Mr. Cheney doesn't think he needs to testify at all, but CIA Director George Tenet has exposed the falsification of intelligence details he provided both Congress and the Pentagon, and knows even more than Mr. Bush, according to inside sources.

Conversely, Condi Rice didn't show up to testify because only 5 of the 10 members would be present, which was apparently scheduled by the White House. As National Security Advisor Ms. Rice absolutely needs to testify, as well as CIA Director Tenet, and FBI Director Mueller.

I actually provided a 24th. question:

24. What about the billions in "shorts" sold just prior to 9-11. The SEC has records of all buy and sell orders. Brokerage firms are holding millions of unclaimed funds belonging to those investors. This needs to be investigated, because those individuals had foreknowledge of 9-11. Those are not classified documents, and failure to subpoena those documents is tantamount to not trying to find the perpetrators who did benefit.
Moreover, the Boston FBI has credit card receipts for (7) airline tickets for the alleged hijackers, paid for by a person(s) of interest, but they refuse to release that information to your Commission thereby failing to cooperate and obfuscating justice. This was the same suppression of evidence as done by FBI supervisors prior to 9-11 which could have prevented the entire tragedy. No one lost their jobs, but on the contrary were rewarded, perhaps because they were following orders -- but whose orders? I suggest you also call Special FBI Agent Robert Wright to testify, and could provide a wealth of information. He and his attorney were both threatened if they went public -- Why? But they did on
C-Span. You may contact www.judicialwatch.org  or Atty. Larry Klayman in Chicago.

One makes demands, the others make excuses. You should insist they ALL comply with the commission and not make their own rules. It should be scheduled so that all 10 members are present; under oath, with transcripts and recordings; otherwise it will appear to be just a whitewash to the American public, indicating a private investigation with subpoena powers should be organized, and a federal grand jury should be called.

Moreover, if there is not a full complete investigation, people should contact their representatives, and insist they impeach Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, so they can testify "in public" before the Senate, and those involved will neither be able to make demands or excuses. Americans want to know, and they aren't going to wait 40 years for a "Magic Bullet" story.

Thank you for your email to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. President Bush has offered to meet privately with Chairman Kean and Vice Chair Hamilton, but prefers not to meet with all 10 Commissioners. We hope the President will reconsider.

The 23 questions that you forwarded, originally provided to us by the Family Steering Committee, focus on many important issues. They will be very helpful to the Commission as it prepares for a meeting with the President.

The Commission deeply appreciates your support, and we hope you will continue to follow our progress. More information on the Commission's work may be found at www.9-11commission.gov.

Sincerely,



Jonathan Stull

Subject: We request to know why President Bush is allowed to dictate to the 9-11 Comm.

Dear 9-11 Commission

We request to know why President Bush is allowed to dictate to the 9-11 Commission whether he will testify, how long he will testify, to whom he will testify, and why he refuses to testify under oath.

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, AMERICANS WILL NEVER ACCEPT THIS COMMISSION'S FINDING UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. WHY ARE THE U.S. MEDIA/CONGRESS/THE 9-11 COMMISSION NOT PROBING MORE ON BUSH'S ONGOING OBSTRUCTION OF THE 9-11 INVESTIGATIONS?

Not only should Mr. Bush, testify, but also Mr. Cheney, and Ms. Rice must all be subpoenaed and forced to testify just as Clinton was. No one is above the law. Even Sen. McCain recommended giving subpoena power to the 9-11 Commission.

QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED FROM THE 9-11 FAMILY STEERING COMMITTEE
Before an audience of the American people, the Commission must ask President Bush in sworn testimony, the following questions:

1. As Commander-in-Chief on the morning of 9/11, why didn’t you return immediately to Washington, D.C. or the National Military Command Center once you became aware that America was under attack? At specifically what time did you become aware that America was under attack? Who informed you of this fact?

2. On the morning of 9/11, who was in charge of our country while you were away from the National Military Command Center? Were you informed or consulted about all decisions made in your absence?

3. What defensive action did you personally order to protect our nation during the crisis on September 11th? What time were these orders given, and to whom? What orders were carried out? What was the result of such orders? Were any such orders not carried out?

4. In your opinion, why was our nation so utterly unprepared for an attack on our own soil?

5. U.S. Navy Captain Deborah Loewer, the Director of the White House Situation Room, informed you of the first airliner hitting Tower One of the World Trade Center before you entered the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. Please explain the reason why you decided to continue with the scheduled classroom visit, fifteen minutes after learning the first hijacked airliner had hit the World Trade Center.

6. Is it normal procedure for the Director of the White House Situation Room to travel with you? If so, please cite any prior examples of when this occurred. If not normal procedure, please explain the circumstances that led to the Director of the White House Situation Room being asked to accompany you to Florida during the week of September 11th.

7. What plan of action caused you to remain seated after Andrew Card informed you that a second airliner had hit the second tower of the World Trade Center and America was clearly under attack? Approximately how long did you remain in the classroom after Card’s message?

8. At what time were you made aware that other planes were hijacked in addition to Flight 11 and Flight 175? Who notified you? What was your course of action as Commander-in-Chief of the United States?

9. Beginning with the transition period between the Clinton administration and your own, and ending on 9/11/01, specifically what information (either verbal or written) about terrorists, possible attacks and targets, did you receive from any source?

This would include briefings or communications from:
a. Out-going Clinton officials
b. CIA, FBI, NSA, DoD and other intelligence agencies
c. Foreign intelligence, governments, dignitaries or envoys
d. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice

e. Richard Clarke, former counter terrorism czar

10. Specifically, what did you learn from the August 6, 2001, PDB about the terrorist threat that was facing our nation? Did you request any follow-up action to take place? Did you request any further report be developed and/or prepared?

11. As Commander-in-Chief, from May 1, 2001 until September 11, 2001, did you receive any information from any intelligence agency official or agent that UBL [bin Laden] was planning to attack this nation on its own soil using airplanes as weapons, targeting New York City landmarks during the week of September 11, 2001 or on the actual day of September 11, 2001?

12. What defensive measures did you take in response to pre-9/11 warnings from eleven nations about a terrorist attack, many of which cited an attack in the continental United States? Did you prepare any directives in response to these actions? If so, with what results?

13. As Commander-in-Chief from May 1, 2001 until September 11, 2001, did you or any agent of the United States government carry out any negotiations or talks with UBL, an agent of UBL, or al-Qaeda? During that same period, did you or any agent of the United States government carry out any negotiations or talks with any foreign government, its agents, or officials regarding UBL? If so, what resulted?

14. Your schedule for September 11, 2001 was in the public domain since September 7, 2001. The Emma E. Booker School is only five miles from the Bradenton Airport, so you, and therefore the children in the classroom, might have been a target for the terrorists on 9/11. What was the intention of the Secret Service in allowing you to remain in the Emma E. Booker Elementary School, even though they were aware America was under attack?

15. Please explain why you remained at the Sarasota, Florida, Elementary School for a press conference after you had finished listening to the children read, when as a terrorist target, your presence potentially jeopardized the lives of the children?

16. What was the purpose of the several stops of Air Force One on September 11th? Was Air Force One at any time during the day of September 11th a target of the terrorists? Was Air Force One’s code ever breached on September 11th?

17. Was there a reason for Air Force One lifting off without a military escort, even after ample time had elapsed to allow military jets to arrive?

18. What prompted your refusal to release the information regarding foreign sponsorship of the terrorists, as illustrated in the inaccessible 28 redacted pages in the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry Report? What actions have you personally taken since 9/11 to thwart foreign sponsorship of terrorism?

19. Who approved the flight of the bin Laden family out of the United States when all commercial flights were grounded, when there was time for only minimal questioning by the FBI, and especially, when two of those same individuals had links to WAMY, a charity suspected of funding terrorism? Why were bin Laden family members granted that special privilege--a privilege not available to American families whose loved ones were killed on 9/11?

20. Please explain why no one in any level of our government has yet been held accountable for the countless failures leading up to and on 9/11?

21. Please comment on the fact that UBL’s profile on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives poster does not include the 9/11 attacks. To your knowledge, when was the last time any agent of our government had contact with UBL? If prior to 9/11, specifically what was the date of that contact and what was the context of said meeting.

22. Do you continue to maintain that Saddam Hussein was linked to al Qaeda? What proof do you have of any connection between al-Qaeda and the Hussein regime?

23. Which individuals, governments, agencies, institutions, or groups may have benefited from the attacks of 9/11? Please state specifically how you think they have benefited.

24. What about the billions in "shorts" sold just prior to 9-11. The SEC has records of all buy and sell orders. Brokerage firms are holding millions of unclaimed funds belonging to those investors. This needs to be investigated, because those individuals had foreknowledge of 9-11. Those are not classified documents, and failure to subpoena those documents is tantamount to not trying to find the perpetrators who did benefit.
