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. I’m afraid this won’t go anywhere if a jew judge gets appointed.
    Jew judge hellerstein
    “Judge in 9/11 Suits Feels No Regret That None Ever Went to Trial”
    totally controlled the civil trial of the 911 victims families who desperately wanted the truth to be revealed by going to trial but were all forced into accepting buyouts by hellerstein and the jew Feinberg who controlled the payouts to the BP oilwell blowout victims.
    The jews have so much power judge hellerstein was illegally allowed to hear the case even though his very own son represented the Israeli Jew company with the deliberately deceptively WASPy sounding name Huntleigh International which owned and controlled security at the two airports on 911 from which the planes took off from didn’t recuse himself because of the shockingly obvious conflict of interest because quite obviously if it went to trial Huntleigh International would’ve been a named defend and the lawyers representing the victims families would’ve had a field day examining their employees.
    All this evidence was obstructed by the jew judge hellerstein.
    Jews controlled every step of the way of the 911 story;

    • from the selling of the world trade Center orchestrated by the jew director of the port authority of NY and NJ to the jew Larry”pull it” Silverstein who was good friends with Jew dictator netanyahu who conveniently didn’t eat breakfast there for the first time in 20 years all the way to the illegal destruction of the metallurgical debris evidence which was cut up into little pieces at the jew scrapyard Hugo neu then quickly shipped to China even though they lost tons of money instead of selling it in the US
      Wake up everybody!
      Whether you can admit it or not jews are running our country.
      We are not free
      We are living under the yoke of the jew and sooner or later they will force us into another war for Israel this time with Iran scrap metal evidence again coincidentally cut up into Wake up everybody!

  2. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Excellant interview.
    9/11 Unmasked is the result of a six-year investigation by an international review panel, which has provided 51 points illustrating the problematic status of all the major claims in the official account of the 9/11 attacks, some of which are obviously false. Most dramatically, the official account of the destruction of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7 could not possibly be true, unless the laws of physics were suspended that day. But other claims made by the official account—including the claims that the 9/11 planes were taken over by al-Qaeda hijackers, that one of those hijackers flew his plane into the Pentagon, and that passengers on the planes telephoned people on the ground—are also demonstrably false. The book reports only points about which the panel reached consensus by using the “best-evidence” consensus model employed in medical research. The panel is composed of experts about 9/11 from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, structural engineering, aeronautical engineering, and jurisprudence.”—Interlink Books.

  6. 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 ?

  7. 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.

  8. The Law of Aerodynamics determines the rest.

    Altitude, rate of speed, weight of object . . . POP QUIZ: Name the five layers of atmosphere.

    The further one stands from the wall, the raw egg has a short arch, then drops and smashes on the floor. It never reaches the wall. So, an object in motion, in order to penetrate an object not in motion, has to go X-rate of speed in order to penetrate a object mass not in motion. And that’s just simple stuff. I’m not smart enough to get into more . . . plus, I have to walk my dogs and cat.

    That’s why planes can fly low around my house. They are single-prop, maybe two-prop, but they can fly low and slow. They can also be seen.

    • We Civilians just want the truth, too.

      The truth is NOT found in the investigation. Anyone relying on “investigating” what happened opens themselves up to relying on the false narrative, the false-positive.

      The information is classified because of two words those PofS don’t want the Civilians and Veterans to know or remember: STAND DOWN.

      And somewhere in the annuals of their false flag event there is that command recorded. We’ll never have anyone testify to that directive, however. Maybe . . . on a death bed, or when they get too old to care . . . like me. I’ve gone through way too much not to know how important my mouth is. My ears. My eyes. My brain . . . and my heart. WAY too much . . . I don’t care now. As long as I have Freedom of Speech . . . the best things in life are FREE!

      They were told to STAND DOWN . . .

    • The whole world need the truth, because the consequences after 9/11 resulted in hundreds of thousands dead peoples around the world…

  9. 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.

    • You also need to know the energy required to turn concrete into dust. One might for example start with a brick and try to knock it to dust with a sledge hammer. It should require a certain amount of exertion (Joules) and make your heartbeat go up a bit, ending up with a sweaty brow. Then take a million bricks. How many men would have to work for a month to crush a million bricks with sledge hammers? A zillion ManMonths!
      Now give me the number og Mega-, Giga- or maybe Terajoules.
      The point is that the required energy is enormous. And those towers did turn into a huge cloud of dust. Nothing like a normal demolition.

  10. 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.

    • The truth is the truth. More and more people are moving toward that, but sadly, I have to agree with you on the “media noose tightens” . . . dang me, dang me, take me to the cross and hang me.

  11. 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.
