Arizona Legislator Karen
Johnson Asks McCain to Meet on 9/11
Arizona state senator Karen Johnson (R-18) today
delivered a letter to the office of U.S. Senator John McCain asking him to meet
with a group of professionals to discuss the events of 9/11 when terrorists
hijacked four airplanes and attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. One plane crashed in Pennsylvania.
Johnson recently announced her support for a
new, independent investigation of 9/11. “Even the chairman of the commission
has announced his dissatisfaction with the report,” said Johnson. “Anyone who
reads the report can see that much was left out and that there are many
discrepancies,” she said.
Johnson’s letter requests that McCain allow a
meeting with Scottsdale professor, Blair Gadsby, who has been on a hunger strike
outside McCain’s office on 16th Street for nine days. Gadsby has
arranged for architect Richard Gage and physicist Steven Jones to meet with
McCain at his convenience to present evidence of controlled demolition gathered
from the ruins of Ground Zero. Gage is the founder of Archetects &
Engineers for 9/11 Truth – a group consisting of hundreds of building
professionals who want Congress to open up a new investigation of 9/11. Dr.
Jones is a physicist who has done laboratory analysis of residue from the rubble
of the World Trade Center and found evidence of explosives. Both Gage and Jones
believe that the Twin Towers and Building 7 collapsed as a result of explosives
that were planted in the buildings before September 11.
“Their evidence is very significant,” said
Johnson, “because it wasn’t presented to the 9/11 Commission when they did their
original investigation, and it completely changes the conclusions of the
Commission. There’s nothing wrong with going back and having another look. If
the Commission didn’t have all the facts, then so be it. But we need to know
what happened on 9/11. Nearly 3,000 Americans died that day, and we deserve to
know the truth about what happened. It’s time to get to the bottom of
Johnson and Hunger-Striker Gadsby want McCain to
allow Jones and Gage to present the evidence to him. “Senator McCain wants to
be elected to the highest office in this country,” said Senator Johnson, “and he
needs to know the truth about 9/11. Finding answers to 9/11 should be a
significant part of this presidential campaign. The events of 9/11 led to this
war with Iraq, to the creation of the Dept. of Homeland Security, to the loss of
habeus corpus, the use of wiretaps, the push for a national ID, and other
legislation that deprives us of freedom. This is a very significant issue, and
no one is discussing it. Our presidential candidates need to talk about this.”

Dear Senator McCain:
are no doubt aware that a “Hunger-for-Truth” hunger strike is taking place
outside your Phoenix
office. Each day since Memorial Day (May
26), Blair has arrived at about 6 a.m. and spent the day until approximately
10:30 p.m., distributing literature about 9/11 to passing pedestrians and
motorists. Blair is not eating any food
at all and drinks only water. Today is
Day 9 of the hunger strike.
and his thousands of supporters around the country are requesting that you give
two hours of your time to some experts who would like to present evidence about
the destruction of the Twin
Towers and Building 7 on
Sept. 11, 2001. We all appreciate how full
your schedule is, but the many important unanswered questions about 9/11 demand
answers. I am respectfully requesting
that you meet with Blair and the experts he has arranged. I understand that you hae promised to address
the 9/11 issue in the near future. For
this I am grateful.
might have heard some absurd claims about 9/11, but we are not responsible for
what all 9/11 skeptics say. We are
responsible only for what WE say, and what we say is rock solid. Well qualified professionals in the fields of
physics, engineering, and architecture reject the idea that the World Trade
Center buildings came
down as a result of the impact of the planes and fire. Building 7 wasn’t even hit by an airplane and
the fires in that building were small and contained. Yet all three skyscrapers came down very
evenly and very fast. These experts have
analyzed the evidence with sound scientific procedures and have concluded that
the buildings came down through the use of explosives as are used in controlled
demolitions. I have spoken with these
experts myself, and I agree with their findings.
American people expect and deserve complete answers to what was really involved
in the most lethal attack on U.S.
soil Since Pearl Harbor. The families of
the innocent victims of U.S.
military action in Afghanistan
also deserve to know the truth. The
events of 9/11 need to be investigated thoroughly and openly. That hasn’t been done yet.
give Blair and his experts the time they need to provide you with this very
important, credible information.
Karen S. Johnson
