What an honorable action from the beautiful state of Washington. Thank-you for your decency. There is, in your state, a very strong movement seeking the TRUTH of 9-11. These people are alarmed at the number of unanswered questions about this heinous crime. They are demanding a REAL investigation in order to have these questions answered. For many reasonable, intelligent, and decent Americans, the voluminous evidence is irrefutable that "9-11" was engineered,perpetrated, and covered-up by the Bush/Cheney administration. It is upon this crime that every other illegal and immoral atrocity has been predicated (and "justified"). Perhaps your legislature would also have the integrity to help those in "9-11 Truth Washington" to introduce a request for a REAL investigation into the events of that fateful day,(upon which all lawless US domestic and foreign policy has since been based). With Mt. Ranier as a symbol of justice; you would surely earn a place in history as "Heroes of the Great Northwest".

Dress up like Palestinian and rally for them in Bellevue Square this weekend. This is how Homeland Security should do - Stand up for all local people over the whole.

Just drawing lines for territories is not an educated peace solution in our modernity. We don't see it making sense anymore. We see same kind people on both sides of those lines more often now-a-day. Those lines are just legacy of our uneducated history.

Being a resident of Washington State, I have to say...


My signiture counts for something!!!!


There was standing room only today when about 130 energized and informed citizens gathered in Bellevue to hear Senator Oemig. He is calling it a petition to investigate.. If adopted by the Washington State Legislature, it will go to the floor of the U.S House of Representatives as a privileged item.

Ask your local legislators to co-sponsor Eric Oemig's petition because numbers mean everything to politicians.

Impeach now, for our future.
