From the June 2006 Idaho Observer:
Excerpts from the LA Citizensí Grand Jury on the Crimes of 9/11
The full text of the findings of the 9/11 Truth organization from Los Angeles is available online at www.911truthLA.us or by calling (818) 904-1876. Excerpted below is the single page handout provided at the groupís presentation in Chicago as published in the Spring/Summer triple edition of Global Outlook, Issue 11 (available from The IO for $7 (incl. s/h). We found the members of the LA 9/11 Truth group honorable, well-informed, proficient in legal matters, eloquent in their presentations and inspiring in their written work. If you find yourself called to action after reading the statement below, as we were, then you can bet others will be inspired as well. Feel free to duplicate this statement and pass it out. If ever there was a time for good men and women to act, this is it.
We the People of the United: States, having considered the devastating consequences of the deliberate failure of all government jurisprudence and media oversight to establish truth and accountability for the crimes of September 11, 2001 and the official cover-up that followed; drawing on Common Law and the Fifth Amendment for precedent and authority, duly elected and convened a Citizensí Grand Jury on October 23,2004 and August 27, 2005, at 4 Patriotic Hall in the City of Los Angeles, State of California, USA, reviewed evidence and rendered their findings.
Background & Declaration
The Bush Administration created an "Official Story" that purported to explain the events of 9/11 and the subsequent anthrax attacks. It was promulgated by various official Commissions, Dossiers and Reports including the Kean-Hamilton 9/11 Commission Report (July 2004). All these official Commissions, Dossiers and Reports:
1. Refused to consider evidence contrary to the Bush Administrationís official explanation or distorted evidence to conform to it;
2. Ignored obvious suspects by failing to consider who had the means, motive and opportunity to accomplish all that took place; and
3. Determined that it was outside their mandate to establish legal responsibility or any accountability for the;
a) blatant disregard of standard operating, procedures; and
b) inexplicable negligence that permitted, if not caused, the atrocity of 9/11/2001.
9/11 served to terrorize the American people into supporting an "endless war on terror," an erosion of their Constitutional rights and a fundamental shift in their economic resources and political priorities, while greatly profiting some individuals and institutions financially and politically.
We the People declare it is our mandate:
1. to expose 9/11 as a strategically-designed pretext for war and profit; a self-inflicted pre-planned attack on the American people and citizens from 82 other countries;
2. to identify individual and institutional responsibility not only for the events of 9/11 but the insider-trading that preceded it, the subsequent anthrax attacks, and the cover-up that has followed; and
3. to assure prosecution of such parties to the fullest extent of domestic and international criminal and civil law, including but not limited to political condemnation here in the United States and around the world.
Summary of Findings
After consideration of the evidence presented and expert witness testimony, the Los Angeles Citizensí Grand Jury, comprised of 25 responsible citizens, fully sworn in the Common Law tradition declare:
1. Given that vast bodies of evidence were ignored or distorted (ie: that at least 6 of the alleged 19 hijackers are alive and there is no record that any of them got on the planes nor died on them) and the nature and complexity of the events were far beyond the ability of the 19 so-called hijackers to accomplish unaided (ie: a] the WTC 1, 2 and 7 came down from controlled demolitions - not fires from the planes - which takes weeks to prepare; b] there is no evidence that supports the claim that a 757 actually crashed into the Pentagon), The 9/11 Commission Report and the Bush administrationís "official story" explaining the events of 9/11 are hereby rejected. Henceforth, they shall be considered propaganda fabrications designed to favor the unleashing of aggressive war, while hiding the activity of a private extra-legal, anti-constitutional network of treasonous officials at the highest level of the United States (and perhaps other governments), including high ranking military officers, mercenaries and individuals within private corporations, mainstream media, and political institutions - all who actively prepared, promoted, or passively favored the September 11 attacks and/or supported the cover-up that has followed.
2. The events of 9/11 shall not be addressed as "outside attacks" that happened to America but as inter-related high crimes that happened within America; where motive, means and opportunity must be considered and no suspect ignored or given immunity no matter where they reside, or what rank or official position they held before, on or since 9111/2001.
3. Probable cause does exist for civil and criminal indictments. Appropriate legal and political penalties must be pursued against culpable individuals and organizations for perjury, criminal negligence, treason, abetment of mass murder, insider trading, destruction of public and private property, collusion, obstruction of justice and high crimes against humanity.
4. Given that extensive historical precedents exist of government-sponsored events being created or allowed to happen as pretexts for war and 9/11 has those same characteristics; and given that an obvious - very dangerous - association is now apparent (on 9/11 and 7/7 in London) between the practice of war games, mass-casualty emergency response exercises, other drills and the actual "terrorist" events themselves, therefore, government complicity in 9/11 is probable in ways not yet fully determined.
5. Significant evidence exists that other "9/11-like events" are being planned to justify the invasion of Iran, and/or other countries, and/or to distract public attention away from efforts to hold the guilty parties accountable for these and other crimes. The complete "Presentment of Findings" outlining the specific evidence contrary to the Official Story, the Juryís Declarations, Conclusions and Demands for evidence are available on www.911TruthLA.us and reflect much of what is reported in this issue of Global Outlook.
If our own government, military and civilians are guilty of perjury, treason, destruction of property, mass murder of our own citizens and guilty of high crimes against humanity, and they are in charge of the very investigations that find themselves innocent, isnít it time for you to stand up for truth, justice and real change?

Interesting comment: Gabriel Day of the Peace Resource Project, whose organizational energy and skills served as the inspiration for the Chicago conference, received advice awhile back on how to insure the success of mass movements in Americaóadvice he has been diligently attempting to follow: He was told that, in order for mass movements to take off in America, organizational seeds must be sown in New York (the financial capital), Washington D.C. (the political capital), Chicago (the industrial capital), Los Angeles (the entertainment capital) and San Francisco (the spiritual capital). If you live in those areas, your efforts will serve to ignite the national movement.
