TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2011 /CNW/ -- Recent opinion polls show that nearly half of New Yorkers continue to doubt the official account of 9/11: that's 10 million people.
It's not hard to understand why.
Military billions justified by 9/11 continue to deplete a fragile world economy - yet persistent doubts plague the official story while governments and the media remain silent.
The 9/11 Commission, run by White House insider Philip Zelikow, was resisted for 441 days until 2003 - then given a paltry $15 million to investigate the largest tragedy in American history (the Challenger space shuttle investigation cost $175 million.)
When the 9/11 Commission Report finally appeared in 2004, Harper's cried fraud, referring to "a series of evasive maneuvers that infantilize the audience, transform candor into iniquity, and conceal realities that demand immediate inspection and confrontation."
Since then an international body of qualified independent researchers has taken up the slack.
The resulting mass of evidence has never before reached the mainstream media, and is so vast that it must be released in stages.
The first round of evidence to be presented has been meticulously screened for accuracy by the international group of academics running the Toronto Hearings.
Sponsored by the International Center for 9/11 Studies, this initial offering from scholars, scientists, engineers, military officers, and political scientists will be read into the historical record from September 8-11, 2011 at Ryerson University.
It will be streamed live in its entirety from torontohearings.org
Other initiatives supported by the Toronto Hearings include former Senator Mike Gravel's 2012 California Ballot Initiative and the Investigate Building 7 campaign.
Gravel, who along with Daniel Ellsberg was instrumental in releasing the Pentagon Papers, will be among the witnesses testifying.
Though judges from other lands have called for a full investigation into 9/11, no open, transparent judicial hearings questioning the US Government story have yet taken place.
The sessions will be heard by a distinguished panel of judges, including Mr. Ferdinando Imposimato, Honorary President of the Italian Supreme Court, and will be moderated by Dr. Michael Keefer (Canada) and Dr. Matthew Witt (US).
The Final Report will be edited by American attorney James Gourley.
