Yes, let them know the natives are restless, we got rice to testify, if we cook up enough pressure maybe we can get Bush and Co to testify too.

you might want to go and try and push moveon .org on it.

or (act for change)

to let them know that you want them to take it up.

Demand Bush and Cheney Testify Under Oath!
MASS Email/Phone/Fax Campaign!

There are six individuals who have the power to influence whether President George Bush, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, General Richard Myers, will publicly testify under oath before the American people to explain why they sat at their desks and in a school classroom, failing to take decisive action on September 11, 2001, until after four planes attacked the United States and killed 3,000 Americans. This, despite knowledge of the hijackings earlier that morning before any of the four planes crashed. Also, we need to know WHY CHENEY STOPPED FLYING COMMERCIAL JETS WEEKS BEFORE 9-11 DUE TO SECURITY CONCERNS!!

Use the contact information and questions below to initiate weekly communication with those who have the over-sight responsibility, public microphone, and/or power to influence the strength of the 9-11 Commission investigation. These actions may well determine whether those in charge on 9-11-2001 publicly testify under oath and submit to questioning by Commission-assisted and experienced career prosecutors rather than appointed former government bureaucrats and/or legislators. Lawyers with prosecutorial skills prepare intensely for specific areas of interrogation and will be able to elicit truth and facts via questioning technique regarding the 3,000 death mass-murder investigation.

Sporadic public testimony and soft interrogation along with blatant conflicts of interest still exists on the Commission, even as key government officials and other players mostly meet with members in private behind closed doors--away from the scrutiny of the media and the public. The mere fact that Congress has not employed career prosecutors and a grand jury to be involved indicates that it is not serious about real accountability. Moreover, Congress--via its appointed Commission surrogates--may well be providing cover for members of the joint intelligence committee, many of whom also had access to the same pre-attack briefings about "planes used as weapons to be flown into buildings" seen by President Bush, Mr. Rumsfeld and General Myers. And as such, the actions of the three on 9-11 are indefensible once they were told of the hijackings earlier that morning, before any of the four planes had crashed during a period of nearly two hours without any military response from fighter jets able to exceed the speed of sound--jets that were in the air at the time on East Coast training missions on September 11.

Americans and others around the world are concerned that those with the most power to defend America on 9-11 and who failed to act for nearly two hours while planes crashed one by one are not being subpoenaed to testify publicly under oath instead of private conversations--effectively shielding them from American citizens. Such action permits elements of the final report to be adjusted toward political considerations which protects individuals from the kind of accountability that public testimony will undoubtedly engender, since key documents and briefings have not been released to the media even in redacted form. This, unlike President Clinton, who was subpoenaed and questioned by career prosecutors, and who testified publicly under oath prior to his impeachment by the House of Representatives in 1998.

During your contacts, request that Mr. Bush, Mr. Rumsfeld, and other high government officials be subpoenaed immediately to testify publicly under oath with the assistance of career prosecutors; and ask that Congress and the Commission not accept invocations of presidential immunity or use immunity, which was not afforded to President Clinton.

Starting immediately, we are asking Americans and others around the world who also seek truth and accountability regarding the mysteries of 9-11 to phone, fax and/or email the following six individuals once or twice per week until Mr. Bush, Mr. Rumsfeld, and other top government officials testify publicly under oath and are questioned by career prosecutors like those who interrogated President Clinton. Fair is fair. Please demand answers to the 23 questions below--provided by the 9-11 Family Steering Committee.
