Below is a draft of a leaflet I plan to distribute as part of my own personal street activism on behalf of the New York City 9/11 Ballot Initiative. The leaflet will be on two sides of a 5.5″ x 8/5″ sheet of paper.
Why we need a new investigation of 9/11
After 9/11/2001, many people had questions about how and why the attacks were allowed to happen.
Were there things the U.S. government could have done, but didn’t do, to stop the attacks? Were there warnings that the Bush administration ignored? Why were none of the hijacked planes intercepted before they hit their targets?
Many people wonder if the 9/11 attacks were deliberately allowed to happen. Before 9/11/2001, the Bush administration was already preparing to invade Afghanistan. But, if 9/11 had not happened, Bush could not have rallied much public support for an invasion of Afghanistan, given how disastrously the Soviet Union had lost a war in Afghanistan back in the 1980’s.
Many people even suspect that high officials in the U.S. government not only allowed the attacks to happen, but were directly responsible for the attacks themselves, blaming them on foreign terrorists to provide an excuse for war.
Many other people suspect that there was not any deliberate wrongdoing by anyone in the U.S. government, but that various officials were incompetent or negligent. But was anyone fired? If not, why not?
To resolve these questions, and to hold Bush administration officials accountable if any of them are guilty of either negligence or more serious crimes, we need an investigation.
In 2002 to 2004, there was an investigation by the “9/11 Commission.” But the 9/11 Commission was run by people with ties to the Bush administration, such as Philip Zelikow.
To have an honest investigation of even the possibility of incompetence or negligence, let alone anything worse, on the part of high officials in the Bush administration, the investigation needs to be independent of the Bush administration. There has not yet been an investigation, with subpoena power, that was independent of the Bush administration.
We can have an independent investigation here in New York City. If you’re a registered NYC voter, please consider signing the petition for a New York City ballot initiative to set up an NYC-based commission to investigate 9/11.

(On the New York City Activist blog, click Notes on the leaflet “Why we need a new investigation of 9/11” in the list of pages at the top right corner.)
P.S.: I just now wrote a first version of the Notes on the leaflet page. Among other things, it contains links to documentation on some of the points made in the leaflet. More documentation will be added later.
P.S., 12/28/2007: The above leaflet is worded as neutrally as possible. Its main point is merely that we need a new investigation, regardless of the reader’s viewpoint on what happened on 9/11. I’m also on a committee to revise New York 9/11 Truth’s pamphlet which has (and will continue to have) a different aim, to present the case for 9/11 being an inside job.
The above leaflet was written solely by me and does not represent any organization.
P.S., 12/31/2007: I’ll be substantially revising the above draft soon, to make more of a case for at least a coverup of some kind.
