International Inquiry Into 9-11, Phase One
San Francisco, March 26-28th, 2004

Whereas the tragic events of 9-11 have been used by the United States government to justify a war upon the world, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights;

Whereas the Joint House and Senate Inquiry of September 11, 2001 and the Independent National Commission on Terrorist Attacks have not served to "reveal the truth about the events of September 11, 2001," but to justify increasing the power of the National Security State;

Whereas the mass-circulation press in the United States has failed to ask the most basic questions about what actually happened on September 11, 2001, and has supported the extension of U.S. military might throughout the world;

We, who question the official narrative of September 11, 2001, and question the path the U.S. government has chosen in its wake, believe a public inquiry — asking who, what, how, when and why — into those events is vitally necessary. Therefore, this Inquiry intends to bring together — to share what they have learned with the world — independent researchers, questioners, seekers of evidence, authors, film-makers: all those who desire and work to discover the truth about September 11, 2001.

Our hope is to create a safe space for new witnesses and testimony to come forward, and to deepen common understanding of the enormously complex events that preceded, occurred on and followed the attacks of September 11th 2001. Evidence suggests that September 11, 2001 was a special operation designed to terrorize Americans into silent conformity, to legitimize the crushing of dissent throughout the world, and to gain public support for imperial wars. Our hope is to disempower "the war game" once and for all, by exposing the criminal actions of those in power who committed crimes against humanity to advance that power.

Oral presentations and films will take place in the historic Herbst Theatre in the War Memorial and Veterans Building. A nominal fee will cover plenary sessions. Additionally, meeting rooms will be available for registered participants who are researchers/activists to confer together; their findings will be brought before the public on Sunday afternoon, at the conclusion of the Inquiry. Invited and confirmed (marked *) speakers include:

Excerpts from:

In addition to the main presentations in the Herbst Theatre there will also be presentations, films shown, public dialogues with speakers on topics raised in the program and tabling of resource materials on the second floor of the War Memorial and Veteran's Building, where the Herbst Theatre is located — open to those who have purchased tickets for the Herbst Theatre.

Following each presentation speakers will move to a room on the second floor to take questions on the topic that they have discussed (with the exception of Riva Enteen who has a meeting Saturday, but will be in the Dialogue room 10:00 AM Sunday morning). The other presentations and the film schedule will be in the printed program or posted prominently in the lobby, the resource room and on the doors of rooms open to ticket-holders.

We will have one-and-a-half-hour meal breaks, and hope to encourage much dialogue and discussion.

The public may purchase tickets from the City Box Office ($20 per day).
