"Jersey Girls" Announce a New Petition

Two weeks ago, famed 'Washington Post' reporter Bob Woodward's new book 'State of Denial', revealed the existence of a previously-unknown meeting on July 10, 2001, between then-CIA Director George Tenet, his counterterrorism chief Cofer Black, and White House National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, in which Tenet and Black claim to have warned Rice in the strongest terms that action needed to be taken to prevent the coming attack from Bin Laden.

Now, the "Jersey Girls", the four widowed protagonists of '9/11 Press For Truth', have announced a new online petition for the release of all transcripts and documents related to the July 10th, 2001, meeting, as well as the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Inquiry Report and the CIA Inspector General's report on 9/11 accountability. Please sign the petition here.

Of particular interest regarding the new revelation is the fact that neither Tenet nor Black nor Rice ever mentioned the July 10th meeting when testifying under oath before the 9/11 Commission, nor the earlier Congressional 9/11 Inquiry. Peter Rundlet, former counsel to the 9/11 Commission, points out that "withholding of information" from the Commission may constitute a crime and suggests that "it is hard to come to a different conclusion" than that of a cover-up regarding the incident.
