Ed Asner, Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, is celebrating an important step towards 9/11 truth and justice.

According to Asner and the Committee, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman has announced that the Department of Justice will comply with 18 USC Section 3332 regarding the Lawyers’ Committee’s Petition. That means that a Special Grand Jury should soon be seated to launch an independent investigation of the unsolved crimes of September 11, 2001, beginning with the apparent explosive demolition of the World Trade Center complex including its three skyscrapers.

Asner, one of the biggest TV stars in US history, announced: “The U.S. Attorney’s decision to comply with the Special Grand Jury Statute regarding our petitions is an important step towards greater transparency and accountability regarding the tragic events of 9/11.”

From the Lawyers’ Committee press release:

The U.S. Attorney, in his November 7, 2018 letter to the Lawyers’ Committee, stated: “We have received and reviewed The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc.’s submissions of April 10 and July 30, 2018. We will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions” (emphasis added). (The U.S. Attorney’s letter is attached. It is also available at

The U.S. Attorney’s letter does not spell out the steps that will be taken to comply, but 18 U.S.C. § 3332 is clear as to what these steps must be. This law states: “[a]ny such [United States] attorney receiving information concerning such an alleged offense from any other person shall, if requested by such other person, inform the [Special] grand jury of such alleged offense, the identity of such other person, and such attorney’s action or recommendation.” This law also states that “(a) It shall be the duty of each such [special] grand jury impaneled within any judicial district to inquire into offenses against the criminal laws of the United States alleged to have been committed within that district.”

This letter from the U.S. Attorney was signed by Michael Ferrara and Ilan Graff, Chiefs, Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. On November 24, 2018, the Lawyers’ Committee replied, thanking the U.S. Attorney and expressing support for a thorough inquiry into the crimes reported in the Lawyers’ Committee’s petitions.

The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits( and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life.

  1. Very few people here in the US and overseas believe in the conclusion reached by the committee established to investigate 9/11. There are so many questions regarding the failure of the intelligence services to discover the plot and answer many of the unanswered question regarding the attack on the Pentagon. We went to war on Iraq based on lies and very questionable evidence of WMD. Howe can we truely believe in our governing institutions when they lie to the American people?

  2. This will be interesting to watch, especially the means used to disprove and discredit the evidence, and the witnesses. How many witnesses will die unusually? Are there too many? As I think about I; how will the perpetrators defend, it is my guess the weakest part of the prosecution is the grand jury itself. After the judge does his job, confusing and obfuscating law and fact, the jury will probably return what’s called a no bill, with some cockamamie reason. This could be the final nail in the 911 coffin. Or, up will again be up, and down, down, and justice will be served.
    Will this be a secret grand jury?

  3. Hi O Silver … stein. Is that a light I see, way out there in the darkness. What is happening? There’s a long line a prisoners, and they’re being lead to the gallows. Is that Dick Cheney? Holy shit it is. Who else? I don’t know, we’re still too far away, I can’t make them out. But there’s a lot of them.

  4. Really, I am irritated and disappointed with this article. How stupid can you be ? Do a google search for Ed Asner. His parents are Russian Jews, so probably Askenazi. Even as Mr. Asner is in good-faith, I would not accept his presidency on a 9/11 committee. Chances are that he functions as a gatekeeper for the discourse on 9/11. Everyone with two brain cells ought to know that Israel and Saudi Arabia are impicated in 9/11. What can you expect from him ?

  5. Good news. Maybe we’ll get some truth out in the public domain.

    Nitpick: There is no single US Attorney. This should be made much clearer. These are multiple positions across the country, representatives of the US federal government in the various federal district courts. They are part of the Department of Justice (DOJ) headed by the US Attorney General (formerly Jeff Sessions).

    The pdf document linked to here was on letterhead from the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.

  6. I strongly encourage people to donate to these guys, it is a not for profit and needs to stay funded.
    Follow the links and they have a donate button at the bottom of the page.

  7. According to the 1st Law of Thermodynamics there was NOT enough time for the structural steel, by conduction, to creep (slow plastic deformation) or to reach failure temperature. And that is ignoring the 2″ of fireproofing that was applied during building construction.

  8. And think of this obscenity: Israel Lover Liar Trump worships Israel the criminals responsible for 9/11/01! The investigations have already been completed decades ago. We now need arrests and public trials not continuing secret cover ups by our totally corrupt government. Some of the perps are even in their 90’s now! What a reprehensible disgrace this country has become.

  9. As We move toward Truth the media noose tightens. These should be interesting times…

    Check out Gordon and Chet’s holiday specials if you haven’t already.

  10. This is nothing but pro forma by our “Injustice Department” which is stacked with lying lawyers who have delayed now for 17 plus years on this scam on America by Israel aided and abetted by Bush, Cheney and some very corrupt four star generals who did not lift a finger to defend our nation that day in patent violation of their meaningless oaths of office. Many in our Congress are dual citizens with Israel. What a disgrace and conflict of interest. How come our Injustice Department is not investigating them?

    • Justice delayed is justice denied but nothing ever changes in the corrupt secret cesspool government of America today. The inmates have taken over the asylum.
