(1) Cleland removed from 9/11 Commission
(2) 9/11 widow files lawsuit against Bush

1) Re the "Kean 9/11 Commission" (so-called "Independent Commission"),
which recently caved in to Bush Admin's subversion: Commissioner Max
Cleland, who objected in the strongest terms to the capitulation, has been
removed from the Commission (the official story is that Bush "reappointed
him" elsewhere). There is a media blackout on this, see quotes below:

" And then just yesterday we learn of a new outrage -- Max Cleland, the
commission member who is perhaps the most outspoken critic of the
administration's stonewalling over evidence -- is appointed by the president
to another post, and must leave the commission! The commission has barely a
half-year left to go, and it loses a member! So, why?
which in turn begs an even bigger question. what good is an 'independent'
commission that can be edited by one of the subjects of its
"The news of this Cleland thing is so revealing in itself in light of how
he has recently been talking about the commission that just this news alone
could wake people up to the 9/11 coverup. So, the plea is extended to
getting this story in the mainstream press. Associated Press and Reuters
never picked it up. It's a blackout. "

Open Letter To The President Of The United States

Mr. Bush,

This ''open letter'' is coming from my heart. I want you to know that I am
neither a Republican nor a Democrat and that this is not an attempt to
''bash the Government''.

You Mr. Bush should be held responsible and liable for any and all acts
that were committed to aid in any "cover up" of the tragic events of
September 11, 2001. As President you have a duty to protect the American
people. On September 11th you did not instruct your staff to issue a
nationwide emergency warning/alert to advise us of the attack on America.
We had to receive the news of the attacks via the news networks.

In the months leading up to the attacks you were repeatedly advised of a
possible attack on American soil. During your daily intelligence briefings
you were given information that had been uncovered that the very real
possibility existed that certain undesirable elements would use commercial
aircraft to destroy certain "target" buildings. You never warned the
American people of this possible threat. Who were you protecting?

When you took no responsibility towards protecting the general public from
the possibility of attack, you were certainly not upholding the oath you
spoke when you took office. In that oath you pledged to uphold the
Constitution of the United States of America.

On the morning of the attack, you and members of your staff were fully
aware of the unfolding events yet you chose to continue on to the Emma E.
Booker Elementary School to proceed with a scheduled event and "photo
op". While our nation was under attack you did not appear to blink an eye
or shed a tear. You continued on as if everything was "business as

In the days following the attacks all air traffic was grounded and
Americans, including myself, were stranded wherever they had been when the
flight ban was imposed. I was stranded at Midway Airport in Chicago,
unable to continue on to California for my daughter's wedding. Imagine my
surprise when I later found out that during this "no fly" period a number
of people were flown out of the country on a 747 with Arabic lettering on
the fuselage. None of these people were interviewed or questioned by any
local, State or Federal agencies. Why were they allowed to leave and who
exactly was on that flight. We know for a fact that some of the people on
the flight were members of (or related to) the royal family of Saudi
Arabia and members of the Bin Laden family. Were these people allowed to
leave because of the long-standing relationships that your family has
with both families?

It is my belief that you intentionally allowed 9/11 to happen to gather
public support for a "war on terrorism". These wars, in Afghanistan and
Iraq, have not accomplished what you stated were your goals. Why have you
not captured Osama Bin Laden? Where are Saddam's weapons of mass
destruction? All that has happened is a bill that is passed before
Congress for 87 billion dollars to rebuild what you ordered blown to
bits. As an American who lost a loved one in the "war on terror" I do
pray and support our troops who were sent to Afghanistan and Iraq by you.
These troops have and will continue to die for your lies. As an American
I can make this statement as it appears that associates of your family
may stand to prosper from the rebuilding of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Mr. Bush the time has come for you to stop your control over us. Stop
blocking the release of certain evidence and documents that were
discovered by the 9/11 Investigation Commission if you have nothing to
hide proving you did not fail to act and prevent the attacks of 9/11.
Your reason for not releasing this material is that it is a matter of
"national security". When in fact I believe that it is your personal
credibility/security that you are concerned with. You do not want the
public to know the full extent of your responsibility and involvement.

After 9/11 the Patriot Act and Homeland Security Act were passed. Both of
these allow the government to tap your telephone, search your home, and
seize whatever they feel they need to do on a whim. They can do this
without a judge's review or a warrant. I feel that this is in direct
conflict with our rights as stated in the Constitution and Bill of

We the families of 9/11 victims need to have answers to the following

1. Why were 29 pages of the 9/11committee report personally censored at
your request?

2. Where are the "black boxes" from Flight 11 and Flight 175?

3. Where are the "voice recorders" from Flight 11 and Flight 175?

4. Why can't we gain access to the complete air traffic control records
for Flight 11 and Flight 175?

5. Where are the airport surveillance tapes that show the passengers
boarding the doomed flights?

6. When will complete passenger lists for all of the flights be released?

7. Why did your brother Jeb (the Governor of Florida) go to the offices of
the Hoffman Aviation School and order that flight records and files be
removed? These files were then put on a C130 government cargo plane and
flown out of the country. Where were they taken and who ordered it done?

It has been over two years since hundreds of our lost loved ones "remains"
have still yet to be identified and their remains placed in a landfill at
Fresh Kill. We want our heroes brought back and given a public and proud
resting place where we all can pay our respects and honor them. These
innocent people never had a chance as they were taken from us on that sad
September Day.

In the court of public opinion Mr. Bush, your lies are being uncovered
each day. My husband, all of the other victims and their families and our
nation as a whole, has been victimized by your failed leadership prior to
and after 9/11!

I will prove this in a court of law!

Ellen M. Mariani
