• Breakthrough: U.S. Attorney Agrees to Present Evidence of WTC Demolition to Federal Grand Jury


    Finally, after 17 long years, the 9/11 Truth Movement has opened an avenue to prosecuting those responsible for the shocking destruction of the World Trade Center and the horrible loss of life that resulted.

    Last spring, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry — together with more than a dozen 9/11 family members and with help from AE911Truth — filed a petition with the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan demanding that he present evidence of unprosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center to a special grand jury. Then, in November, came the big news: The U.S. Attorney notified the Lawyers’ Committee in writing that he would comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 requiring him to relay their report to a special grand jury.

    Now the Lawyers' Committee and AE911Truth are working to ensure a thorough and successful grand jury investigation.

Measures We Are Taking to Further the Grand Jury Investigation

This grand jury proceeding is an unprecedented and time-sensitive opportunity to bring about a real investigation with subpoena power and secure indictments against individuals suspected of carrying out this heinous crime. The Lawyers' Committee and AE911Truth are taking several measures — involving hundreds of hours of work and hundreds of pages of submissions — to ensure that the grand jury is presented with the strongest case possible.

U.S. Attorney Advocacy

Push for the inclusion of Lawyers' Committee attorneys and AE911Truth experts in the grand jury process. Also, submit additional filings of new evidence, such as the soon-to-be-released WTC 7 computer modeling study by engineers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Persons with Material Information

File an extensive brief on persons with material information in order to assist the grand jury's investigation. These will include experts, eyewitnesses, and individuals who may have been involved in the crime or may otherwise have information that could help identify perpetrators.


FOIA Requests

Submit FOIA requests for new information and finish litigating existing FOIA requests with NIST and other agencies to bolster the evidence being presented to the grand jury.

Expert and Witness Declarations

Maximize the effectiveness of expert and eyewitness testimony — and increase the likelihood they'll be invited to testify in person — by preparing and filing sworn declarations (the federal equivalent of an affidavit).

Mandamus Action

If the U.S. Attorney does not in good faith comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332, a lawsuit could be filed resulting in a court order that requires the U.S. Attorney to comply.


Questions and Comments

Members of the Lawyers’ Committee are available to answer questions about the complex legal issues and judicial proceedings that lie ahead. We encourage members of the public to contact the Lawyers’ Committee with questions and comments — or with evidence that may be relevant to the grand jury investigation.
