Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is calling for another probe into the 9/11 terror attack, claiming the initial investigation was obstructed by former President George W. Bush’s administration.
“The families and friends of those who were murdered on 9/11 deserve justice,” Stein said in a statement on the issue. “They also deserve to know the truth.”
Her statement continued:
Led by the families of those who died on 9/11, the American people wanted—and deserved—a comprehensive and independent inquiry into the attacks. The Bush administration initially said an inquiry was unnecessary, claiming that the perpetrators had been identified and their methods and motives were clear.
It is well known that the 9/11 Commission produced a report containing so many omissions and distortions that Harper’s Magazine described it as “whitewash as public service”—a document that “defrauds the nation.”
