We Are Change Minnesota
Mark Dayton and Walter Mondale both gave their support to a new investigation of 9/11 after today’s Hillary Clinton rally at Augsburg College in Minneapolis.
When asked the question, “Do you support a new investigation of 9/11?,” former vice president Walter Mondale replied, “Yeah. Why did it happen? We need that ‘phase two’. They never did it.”—identifying the insufficiency of the official findings and calling for a subsequent phase of investigation.
When asked the same question, Mark Dayton replied, “You know, I’m not a senator anymore, but I would support one.” When asked if he had heard the evidence of a cover-up, he replied, “Uh, nothing I would hear would surprise me.”
His response should be expected in light of his public scrutiny of the nature of the official account of the events of 9/11 while serving as senator. On July, 31st 2004 during Senate hearings on the 9/11 Commission Report, Senator Dayton made a noble effort to point out the discrepancies between the time-line of events on 9/11 supplied by NORAD and the (now thoroughly discredited) 9/11 Commission Report. Dayton said before the Commission:
“NORAD’s public chronology on 9/18/01 and the commission testimony twenty months later covered up those truths. They lied to the American people, they lied to Congress and they lied to your 9/11 commission to create a false impression of competence,
communication, coordination and protection of the American people. And we can set up all the oversight possible at great additional cost to the American taxpayers and it won’t be worth an Enron pension if the people responsible lie to us; if they take the records and doctor them into falsehoods, and if they get away with it.”
How long will the American people have to wait to hear calls for a new investigation from current rather than former elected officials?
