A federal grand jury should investigate the collapses of the World Trade Center Twin Towers during the 9/11 attacks, as well as WTC 7, according to a petition that an expert lawyers group plans to file on April 10 in New York City’s federal court.

The 54-page petition and its 57 exhibits detail the evidence that explosives were used to destroy the WTC buildings during the attack on Sept. 11, 2001. The non-profit Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry demands that the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York convene and submit the evidence in the petition to a grand jury.

The petition’s executive summary and full text are posted on the Lawyers’ Committee website, as of April 9.

“The failure of our government to diligently investigate this disturbing evidence that has emerged over the past sixteen years regarding what occurred at the World Trade Center on 9/11,” commented Executive Director Mick Harrison, “has contributed to the erosion of trust in our institutions.”

The WTC Tower at the top of this column illustrates “ejections” or “squibs” marked by arrows that, according to the petition-filers, provide evidence of explosion. So does molten steel, they say, which most logically could come from thermite or thermate, not from airplane fuel. The photo below shows examples of molten steel.

The lawyers, whose petition is supported by numerous 9/11 family members of victims and first responders, detailed evidence (see below) that they say requires a criminal investigation by prosecutors in the office led by Interim U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman.

President Trump and Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions in January named Berman to be the interim U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Berman’s experience includes extensive work as a federal attorney, as well as two years as a law partner of former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

Giuliani became nationally famous, including selection as Time Magazine’s “Man of the Year,” for his visible role after 9/11. But he is known also for having authorized the removal and disposal of WTC steel debris in heavily guarded shipments to China.

Petitioners held a press conference for 1 p.m. Tuesday on the steps of New York’s City Hall in Manhattan. Those who want to add their names to the petition can sign up online here. New names will be displayed on the next filing, which will supplement the one filed this week.

  1. Airplanes are not strongly build and against a building they do brake apart not causing so much destruction to a strong building as the towers.
    It was also mentioned that another building next to them “fall” without any airplane touching it !!!! wow

  2. I just hope that a number of New York lawyers do not meet with accidents in the coming months. After many years of questioning the event and even reading Dr Judy Woods book among others it’s a bit like the Adelaide Bartlett murder when the judge asked the lady how she did it, I just want to know how they did it.
    For me the smoking gun is what happened to the window glass , if it was an explosive demolition glass would have been blown all over Manhattan , similarly if it was the NIST pancake, glass would also have been everywhere, if it was a nuke ,no glass but how would the guys in stairwell B have survived, there was little or no glass shards on the ground , no one was harmed by falling glass , so lets hope we can find out what really happened. If you can find out what happened to the window glass, toilets ,filling cabinets and the 1100 people who totally disappeared and left no DNA behind then those 1100 peoples relatives might have closure. Lets hope so, but I also fear that if it gets as far as the jury a lot of paperwork will be quickly shredded.

  3. The most basic responsibility of the four star generals is to anticipate any and all possible attacks on this country and defend it against such attacks. They have been provided virtually unlimited resources to do so. They have many experts, usually at the Ph.D. level, in every field, to anticipate every possible mode of attack. Obviously they dismally failed on 9/11/01. What happened? Their first duty is not to a sitting president but to the Constitution. All the four star generals that day and Bush and Cheney, should be rounded up from their comfortable lavish retirement, arrested and jailed until they can explain every sordid detail of how they dismally failed to anticipate this attack on 9/11/01 and defend the country from it despite having virtually unlimited money and resources to accomplish that task. Any of the roughly 300 million citizens should have the right to interrogate them too. These despicable people are nothing but traitors. And of course we know such justice will never happen. Delay of Justice is Injustice.

    • I thought the primary duty of the US military was to make the world safe for exploitation by oligarchs?

  4. and sign the petition, it’s an easy minute….. the numbers give the volunteers hope and incentive…adds meat

    the box{ Please keep me informed }, I just wrote YES

    and the last box{ I support the petition } , put Veteran (branch) if a veteran, … or job title

  5. About time. I hope I’m wrong but, doubt it goes anywhere. Beeman needs to recuse himself from having any contact with the petition.

    • The number of different things that can turn a key person in any system are endless. The door is always open.
      Most are hesitant due to death threats, so if the threat can be countered, it’s anyones guess who would swim to the top for fresh air. Constant pressure to expose sloppy hits, must be maintained. The number of folks questioning the Skripal story is 200 times that of a decade ago. Keep the coffee coming.

  6. I like the timing. I would have changed the line, “has contributed to the erosion of trust in our institutions.”

    to,. “has in large part played a significant role in the erosion of trust in our institutions, that we see today”
