アメリカ人から911犠牲者の遺族の米政府に対する911証拠物件公開妨害排除運動への協力要請きたる。

彼らは、イラク攻撃へと引火した戦争挑発謀略の証拠を隠滅して、世界中を騙し抜こうと必死なのである。

 しかし、犠牲者の遺族は、当初から、彼らの名においてアフガニスタンを攻撃することに反対を表明し、イラク攻撃に付いても同様に反対したのである。

 以下、いささかのリードを付したのみで丸投げするが、訳出などの協力を願う。


9/11 Families Request Help/pressure on the White House not to block full disclosure of materials

A founding member of 9/11 CitizensWatch, Allan Duncan, has received this request from 9/11-victim family member Mindy Kleinberg of September 11th Advocates, widow of Alan Kleinberg, who was killed at Cantor Fitzgerald in WTC Tower One. They are looking for support in putting pressure on the White House not to block full disclosure of materials pertinent to the investigation by the National Commission.

9/11 CitizensWatch and UnansweredQuestions.org wholly support such a
campaign. May it begin in earnest now and not let up until we have
answers to all the questions raised in the wake of 9/11.

Please forward far and wide. Thank you for doing your part in working
toward accountability and the truth.

Mindy's message follows:
------------------------------------------------------------------
If you could possibly send this message out to anyone who wants to help
we would appreciate it. The article below talks about the WH looking to
exert executive privilege on many relevant documents that are needed in order for the Commission to properly do its investigation. We would appreciate it if people would either call or fax a letter to the White House letting them know that they are outraged by the possibility of this administration trying to block pertinent information from getting to the Independent Commission. Preventing the truth from coming out will cause this country to remain in peril.

Sincerely, Mindy Kleinberg

September 11 Showdown
MICHAEL ISIKOFF AND MARK HOSENBALL
NEWSWEEK

An imminent and potentially nasty confrontation over an independent
commission's authority to investigate the White House's handling of
the September 11 terror attacks was narrowly averted last week--just
before President Bush landed a jet aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln in a
carefully crafted ceremony touting the toppling of Saddam Hussein as a
major victory in the war on terrorism.

BUT THE BATTLE over the issue is far from over. In fact, NEWSWEEK has
learned, President Bush's chief lawyer has privately signaled that the
White House may seek to invoke executive privilege over key documents
relating to the attacks in order to keep them out of the hands of
investigators for the National Commission on Terror Attacks Upon the
United States--the independent panel created by Congress to probe all
aspects of 9-11.

Some commission members now fear a showdown over the
issue--particularly over extremely sensitive National Security Council
minutes and presidential briefing papers--could be coming in the next
few weeks. "We do think it's important to engage this issue relatively
early--i.e., now," says Philip Zelikow, the executive director for the
commission, who is negotiating with administration lawyers to inspect
documents and interview senior officials.

Zelikow says he is still hopeful an accommodation can be reached with
administration lawyers and that the issue is now in the hands of
senior officials in the White House. But he made it clear that the
9-11 panel has no intention of backing down from its insistence that
it receive full access to a wide range of material that has never been
reviewed by any outside body--much less made public. "We expect to get
what we need," Zelikow says. "We're not going to go quietly into that
good night."

Zelikow's comments, and even stronger ones from some commission
members, suggest that last week's brief contretemps over access to
transcripts of secret congressional testimony was only one small
flare-up in a much broader and potentially high-stakes struggle that
could ultimately wind up in federal court.

Just two weeks ago, one commission member, Tim Roemer, a former
Democratic congressman from Indiana, had sought to read transcripts of
three days of closed hearings that had been held last fall by the
House and Senate Intelligence Committees--hearings that Roemer, as a
member of the House panel, had actually participated in.

But when Roemer went down to a carefully guarded room on Capitol Hill
to read the classified transcripts--he says to refresh his memory--he
was stunned to learn that he couldn't have access to them. The reason,
relayed by a congressional staffer, was that Zelikow had acceded to a
request by an administration official to permit lawyers to first
review them to determine if the transcripts contained testimony about
"privileged" material.

Roemer called the deal "outrageous" and 9-11 family members victims
bombarded the panel with angry calls. But late Tuesday, White House
lawyers relented, thereby averting an embarrassing public escalation
of the dispute--and inevitable charges of a White House cover-up--that
could well have marred last Thursday's highly publicized ceremony
aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln in which Bush declared the military
action in Iraq "one victory in a war on terror that began on September
11, 2001, and still goes on."

But that by no means settled the matter, sources say. Publicly, the
White House has pledged cooperation with the panel and two months ago
chief of staff Andrew Card even distributed a memo to agency chiefs
instructing them to work with the panel and provide them access to
documents. But privately, talks have been far more problematic. Thomas
Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey who Bush named to
chair the panel, confirmed to NEWSWEEK that in private talks with
White House chief council Alberto Gonzales, the president's chief
lawyer, has already told him that he "may seek to invoke executive
privilege" over some documents sought by the commission.

Executive privilege is a doctrine traditionally invoked by all White
Houses to keep confidential briefings or advice given to the
president. But the precise boundaries of the doctrine are hardly
settled. And it is far from clear how a White House attempt to
withhold material from a congressionally authorized national
commission on 9-11 will play out.

Gonzales and the rest of the White House legal staff are known to feel
particularly passionate about the sanctity of staff advice given to
the president--a view that reflects Bush's and Vice President Dick
Cheney's adamant opinion that internal executive-branch
decision-making should be conducted without fear of congressional or
media scrutiny. "Those are like the crown jewels--we'll never give
those up," one White House lawyer predicted to NEWSWEEK recently when
asked about presidential briefing papers that were likely to be sought
by the commission.

But some commission members say it might be politically difficult for
the White House to sustain that position--especially given the panel's
broad legal mandate to unearth all pertinent facts relating to the
events of 9-11. The invocation of executive privilege could fuel
suspicions that the White House is stonewalling the panel in order to
cover up politically embarrassing mistakes. "I think they have got to
be worried about this," says one panel member. "This is a bipartisan
commission, and we've got the family members."

Among the most sensitive documents the commission is known to be
interested in reviewing are internal National Security Council minutes
from the spring and summer of 2001 when the CIA and other intelligence
agencies were warning that an attack by Al Qaeda could well be
imminent. The panel is also expected to seek interviews with key
principals--such as national-security adviser Condoleezza Rice and her
chief deputy, Stephen J. Hadley--to question them both about advice
they gave the president and about what actions they took to deal with
the rising concerns of intelligence-community officials about the
Qaeda threat.

An equally dicey subject, sources say, is the commission's expected
request to review debriefings of key Al Qaeda suspects who have been
arrested--such as Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and Ramzi bin al-Shibh--who
played critical roles in the 9-11 plot. The intelligence community has
treated those debriefs as among the most highly classified material in
the government, and the Justice Department is stoutly resisting a
ruling by the federal judge overseeing the Zacarias Moussoui case to
make bin al-Shibh available to the defense.

But commission members argue that they can't possibly do their job to
write an authoritative history of 9-11 if they can't discover what the
federal government has learned from Al Qaeda operatives who know the
most about how the plot was put together.

TERRORISTS? WHAT TERRORISTS? After his trip to Damascus last weekend,
Secretary of State Colin Powell proclaimed new progress in the war on
terror. The Syrian government, he announced, had agreed to shut down
offices of Hamas and two other militant anti-Israel groups that the
U.S. government views as violent terrorist organizations.

It is still far from clear how much the Syrians will actually make
good on their promises to Powell. But if they do, Syria may turn out
to be more helpful than some of the United States' supposed European
allies in the war on terror. Despite renewed pressure from the Bush
administration, the European Union is refusing to crack down on some
of the same organizations on the grounds that they aren't
terrorists--despite their role in staging suicide bombings against
Israeli civilians.

The issue came to a head late last year, NEWSWEEK has learned, when
Jimmy Gurule--then a top U.S. Treasury official involved in cracking
down on terrorist financing--asked his counterparts at the European
Union to freeze the assets of six organizations on Washington's
terrorist list. According to a copy of the list obtained by NEWSWEEK,
the targeted groups included Hamas, two Hamas-related businesses (the
Al-Azsa Religious Bank and Beit al-mal Holdings) and Hizbullah, as
well as two others outside the Middle East, the Tamil Tigers of Sri
Lanka and the Communist Party of the Philippines. But in the case of
Hamas and Hizbullah, the European Union refused. The purported reason:
both groups run large-scale social services and medical operations in
the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. The Europeans say that
they have no problem going after the terrorist arms of both
outfits--but not the entire group, a distinction that Washington
rejects as meaningless.

At the moment, sources tell NEWSWEEK, the issue is at a stalemate--one
more sign that when it comes to the war on terror, the perspective in
Washington can often be sharply different than the view in other
capitals, even those of our traditional allies.
