APPENDIX 7

"THE 9/11 OMISSIONS HEARINGS"

Convened by The 9/11 Citizens' Commission
At Symphony Space, New York City September 9, 2004

 

The "Omissions Hearings" of the 9/11 Citizens' Comission were developed by 9/11 CitizensWatch and 911Truth.org as a response to the publication of The 9/11 Commission Report.

The hearings were held in New York for nine hours on Thursday, September 9, 2004, with an attendance of 400 people at the afternoon session. The testimonies by researchers and whistleblowers presented evidence and explored questions that the official 9/11 Commission had chosen to ignore, or at least to omit from its reports and public proceedings; hence the ironic name.

The Omissions Hearings stand as a model for ad hoc citizens' action, piecing together an investigation to fill the vacuum left by a government that has abandoned accountability and has allowed obvious discrepancies to prevail in its accounts of one of the greatest crimes and defining events of our age. We are therefore providing the complete transcripts and the video / audio records of the hearings as documents in support of this Complaint and Petition.

[ Audio Files Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV ]

Unfortunately, citizens' initiatives cannot issue subpeonas or gain access to classified documents or official witnesses. Those powers have been invested by the people in governmental authorities. Several of the parties who participated in the Omissions Hearings in the role of commissioners, witnesses or staff are therefore also taking part in the present Complaint and Petition to the Attorney General, as researchers, consultants and/or complainants and signatories. Their expertise and knowledge remains accessible to future investigations by suitably empowered authorities, such as the Attorney General.

On November 19, 2004, the "Justice for 9/11" Steering Committee submitted a Citizens' Complaint and Petition to the offices of the Attorney General of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, citing probable cause for an independent grand jury investigation to examine unsolved crimes committed in connection with the events of September 11, 2001. We are publishing the complete Complaint and Petition online in this space as a living, growing document. 

Nine members of September 11 families, Ground Zero first responders, and citizens of New York have signed on as the first complainants. We call on citizens to support this action, to initiate similar actions in other states, and to sign the online petition of solidarity.
