Or to Robert Gates, for the Department of Defense:

"Does the Department of defense have a record of one Sgt. Timothy McNiven, who now names a number of other soldiers in 1976 as having participated in war games closely resembling 9/11? Please remember sir, you are under oath."

For Zbigniew Brzezinski. U.S. Senate candidate Laurie Dobson says on her website:

"On February 1, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was an advisor to President Carter, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that there was an operative scenario for an attack on Iran, and that this included a terrorist act in the United States to be blamed on Iran and to be used as a pretext for aggression against Iran – something like a new 9/11. It was the former head of the National Security Council who said this, one of the top foreign policy figures of the Democratic Party. If I had been sitting on that committee, I would not have let Brzezinski leave the room until he told the committee who was doing this, using what methods, and how he found out about this. Congress has its own jail cells in the capitol, and if I had been there Brzezinski might have seen the inside of that cell, until he told us the whole truth. But the senators on that committee – Biden, Dodd, Obama, Durbin – just sat there like bumps on a log. Some leadership! I call that a real dereliction of duty."

For U.S. Congressman John Olver:

"Ralph Nader reported in a public forum a statement by Congressman John Olver (D-MA) that if congress were to commence impeachment proceeding George Bush would bomb Iran, declare martial law upon the promised retaliatory attacks, and cancel the 2008 elections. Commission member to Olver: "Is there any truth to this statement, sir? Tell us how you know of this planned treason by the president of the United States?"

For Dick Cheney:

"is it true, Mr. Vice President, that you ordered the standing orders not to be changed, not scramble jets on that morning immediately upon learning the aircraft had been hijacked? Did you have the opportunity to order that the second plane be shot down?"

The policy of the 911 Truth Movement should be to forgive, to heal, and to punish only the highest perpetrators. Only God can Judge. I am against the death penalty in all cases. The men who perpetrated 9/11 are men with sick hearts.

Indictments should be confined to the intellectual authors of such deeds, the civilian leadership, and those who incited others to treason. All others are soldiers, subject to orders of the civilian leadership, the Secretary of Defense and the Commander-in-Chief. Our brothers may have have been following orders they questioned in their hearts, but they are still our brothers, and we forgive them. This nation will heal.

I'm in awe of the brave patriots not letting go of this, and growing by the day. Seeing this makes me feel, for the first time in a long time, that our country has not lost its essential character, and we will make it through this. Some of us may die if there is a last-gasp lashing-out by the cabal, if that is who rules us, but that is inconsequential. What's important is that democracy will survive. The republic, for another generation at least, will be inoculated against the politics of fear, ignorance, and manipulation that made this monstrous deed possible (bin Laden initially denied involvement, but as we know, bin Laden is nothing without Bush, and Bush is nothing without bin Laden.) New investigations, broad amnesty, and forgiveness.
