Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader pledged support for a new
investigation into the events of 9/11 Monday, commenting that the 9/11
Commission was “flawed, right from the get go”.
Nader was questioned by members of We Are Change Ohio at a campaign rally in
Cincinnati, Ohio earlier this week.
Asked if he supported the 9/11 Truth Movement and the efforts of activists
and victims’ families to expose the lies surrounding the attacks, Nader
“I was there when they were collecting signatures in the audience and I
Nader commented, referring to We are Change’s activities at
“The 9/11 Commission, first of all, it took the members of the great
families to push the administration even to have an inquiry, can you imagine
an attack like that and the government didn’t even want to have an inquiry?”
“And second, the ground rules for the 9/11 Commission were that they weren’t
going to name names, or hold anybody responsible, that’s a real
investigation,” he added with irony.
“So right from the get go it was flawed and there needs to be another one,
and the best place to have it is New York City,” Nader concluded.
Nader was also asked to comment on Blackwater and the
mercenaries in Iraq.

Nader was a key figure in the original movement to establish the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a government agency that has been
fiercely criticized for its role in declaring the air at ground zero safe to
breathe, when in reality it contained deadly toxins that have led to the
chronic illnesses and slow deaths of hundreds of first responders.
Nader recently spoke with Alex Jones (listen below) concerning the lack of difference
between the two main party candidates, the violations of the Constitution by
the current administration, the futility of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and
the reasons he is running for president for a fifth time.
