Conduct a new, independent investigation
into the attacks of September 11, 2001.
In just over 48 hours, this idea received 660 votes from concerned citizens
eager to take this unique opportunity to make their collective voice heard.
The huge outpouring of support quickly made it the number one Top Rated Idea
in Change.org's "Ideas For Change in America" contest.
We suddenly had HOPE. We were about to win a major victory: Bring our
request for a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks to the attention of
President Obama. Certainly, the Obama Administration would consider our
request when Change.org would present it to him along with the 9 other
winning ideas on January 20, 2009. If we had 660 in just 48 hours, we were
sure to have thousands by then.
Much to our surprise, Change.org decided to censor our idea. Here's what
they told us:
"we reserve the right to keep the competition and its content aligned
with the stated mission and overall spirit of the project."
We've just learned controlled demolition is an efficient way to destroy
This page is a tribute to our great, but short-lived victory.
Americans want a new investigation. People from all over the world want a
new investigation. 9/11, the unjust wars, repressive legislation, increased
and unlawful government surveillance that have followed have affected us
all. As we approach the start of a new era ushered in under the banner of
Hope and Change we can believe in, people immediately came together and
resoundingly voted for seeking truth and justice for the common good.
Change.org's change of heart has left us baffled, but not broken. They have
suggested we contact the Obama Administration directly. And we will.
Change.org's reaction has shown us their kind of change is not the kind we
can believe in.
Next stop, the White House with great hope that President Obama's actions
will speak as loud as his words.
