Former Senator Mike Gravel Calls for Independent 9/11 Investigation and Prosecution of President Bush and Vice President Cheney

The former Democratic senator from Alaska discusses his presidential campaign, his role in the releasing of the Pentagon Papers and his support for NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign, a grassroots group seeking to place an initiative on the ballot of the November 6th general election allowing registered New York City voters to create a new commission to investigate 9/11.

Former Alaska Senator and 2008 Presidential Candidate Mike Gravel is holding a news conference in New York City today to join a call for a new independent investigation into 9/11.

Gravel will be speaking on behalf of the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative Campaign, a grassroots group seeking to place an initiative on the ballot of the November 6th general election allowing registered New York City voters to create a new Commission to investigate 9/11.

The group is looking to appoint between nine and fifteen commissioners on the panel to conduct the investigation. Some of the people who have reportedly already agreed to serve as commissioners include Lori Van Auken, a 9/11 widow and one of the so-called “Jersey Girls,” Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican Senator from Rhode Island, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, a pastor in Detori, Michigan as well as former Democratic Senator, Mike Gravel who joins me today in the firehouse studio.

Mike Gravel on DemocracyNow! announces his work to get a new 9/11 investigation on the November 08 ballot in New York City.

Here's the organizing site:

There is widespread awareness that the events of 9/11 were never adequately investigated, and that our government has sidestepped accountability on all fronts. As a result, there is growing public desire for a more thorough re-examination of what occurred.

Now there is a grassroots action which is designed to obtain an honest, independent investigation of 9/11 by placing an initiative on the ballot of the Nov. 6th, 2008 general election allowing registered New York City voters to create a new Commission.

YOU can help achieve the goal of passing this important referendum by becoming a part of a historic campaign called the NYC 911 Ballot Initiative.

If you are a New York City resident you can sign our petition, volunteer to help, and donate, all in the cause of placing the issue of a new investigation of 9/11 on the NYC ballot. We suggest reading the first, then downloading the petition which is on the same page.

If you're not a resident, you can direct all your friends and family in New York City to this site and urge them to sign our petition and volunteer. Also, you can also to the cause. You will be contributing to the momentum we are creating to call for an impartial, independent investigation of the most consequential event of our time. If you live near New York City, you can help with our petition drive and help us build an army of volunteers. We need hundreds of people willing to put in 20-30 hours between now and the end of June!

We ask that EVERYONE sign our so we can keep you informed of important developments and create a huge network for truth and justice. At the very least, we urge you to spend 10-15 minutes to review this important information and see the difference you can make in this all-important cause. Creating mass awareness will be invaluable to the success of this effort.

Here's the plan. We must get 30,000 valid petition signatures of registered New York City voters as quickly as possible. To ensure we reach this goal, we are aiming for 100,000 signatures. Our target date is June 30th. At that time our petition will be reviewed by New York City Council. On July 1st we'll begin gathering another 15,000 signatures which will override City Council if they decide to reject our proposal.

If you're not a registered voter, you can register Also, you can to help us with our petition drive. If you know of organizations who will endorse this campaign and notify their membership, please right away.

As New Yorkers we deserve a meaningful and transparent process
to reveal to the fullest extent possible what really happened
leading up to, on 9/11, and the period that followed.
The nation, and indeed the world will benefit from our efforts
to obtain truth, accountability, and justice.


We're calling for 500 volunteers to spend just 20 - 30 hours collecting petition signatures in NYC by end of June. Please sign our today!

There were three honest politicians running for president; Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel. All the others were neocons. That includes CFR member and Cheney relative Barack Obama who knows 9/11 was an inside job (but refuses to talk about it) and has stated that "we may need to go into Iran".

You're absolutely right Sue!

The American political system, 2 party type, is morally and intellectually bankrupt. It is so corrupt that it rejected 3 honorable men, 1 proven in battle, for office.

Liberty dies to thunderous applause.
