Open Letter To The President Of The United States
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
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 usual".
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 Rights.
We the families of 9/11 victims need to have answers to the
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
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!
