Does Your Senator Support An Independent Investigation Into The 9-11 Attacks?
by RA from LA
Dear BuzzFlash Readers,
Here is the evolving list of U.S. Senators and their responses to the question: Does the Senator support an independent investigation into the 9/11 attacks?
The families of the 9/11 victim have been left twisting in the wind, denied anything close to the full truth they need in order to begin the process of closure. In late July, they received a glimmer of hope: By a vote of 219 to 188, the Republican House approved a measure to create an independent blue-ribbon panel to investigate the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. It was to include two representatives from the victim's families. But a similar proposal seems to be stalled in the Democratic Senate, although there are signs that public demands for such a commission are growing. What is really needed is a wide-ranging investigation into what happened, not just a narrow look at intelligence failures.
You can help fill in the blanks by calling your state's Senators office and pinning them down with a yes or no answer.
RA from LA
