In a major break-through for the activist organization Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth, The Lawyers' Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc., a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York has agreed to present evidence of a counter-narrative of the New York based events of 9/11/2001 to a Grand Jury. The letter from the Attorney may be seen below (https://www.ae911truth.org/grandjury):

The text reads:

Dear Mr. Harrison:
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.

Very truly yours,
United States Attorney

The organization, which describes itself as "More than 3,000 architects and engineers" who have signed a petition for a new investigation of the events of 9/11, considers this "without question the greatest step forward the 9/11 Truth Movement has ever taken toward bringing about a real investigation into the events of September 11, 2001." And indeed it may be if their evidence - which was presented in a 56-page legal filing (or 58-page amended version) to the:

Honorable Geoffrey S. Berman
United States Attorney
Southern District of New York
United States Attorney's Office

...is thoroughly investigated by the Grand Jury.

Clearly, the organization is putting all the resources of its Lawyer's Committee, and more, behind the effort, also attempting to raise money for the effort as well, about $7,331, as of this writing, but looking to raise $50,000.

The petition to the court includes evidence and allegations that pre-planted explosives were used to cause the destruction of both World Trade Center Towers, and additionally World Trade Center Tower #7, and that the airplane crashes could not have brought down the towers alone. The filing also lists various federal felonies that form the basis for demanding the presentation of evidence to the Grand Jury under statute 18 U.S.C. - 3332(a). Apparently, the U.S. Attorney agrees.

Whether this is an opportune time, after 17 years, for an investigation of the complex events of 9/11 may depend on whether one believes the official version of events involving only two hijacked terrorist airplanes bringing down three buildings (the additional destruction of a Pennsylvania field and of the Pentagon by two additional planes are not discussed in the filing). For those who do, the investigation is long overdue.

The site https://www.ae911truth.org/ is well organized and extensive, with videos and other supporting material too lengthy to summarize here. They claim thousands of professionals and members of the public have signed their petition demanding a new investigation:

As far as this writer has seen, no major mainstream news organization has seen fit to cover this story in its leading headlines, or anywhere else, at this time. One can imagine that would change, and change a great deal, if the Grand Jury returns a finding supportive of the petition. The ramifications of such a finding are more difficult to imagine, but could conceivably implicate past and present high level parties of both federal and local governments.

This writer offers no opinion on the veracity of the organization's claims, nor any special expertise to do so. Whatever one's position, however, seeking the truth of one of the most major events of the current century through the legal system cannot be faulted.
