Senator Al Franken supports an “Open, Running 9/11 Commission”—citing the CIA’s withholding of evidence and the recommendation of 9/11 Commission member Bob Kerrey.

We Are Change Minnesota follows up with Franken in October ’07

When We Are Change Minnesota met with then-candidate Franken on the campaign trail in 2007, we had already confronted him with evidence of the 9/11 cover-up including evidence of controlled demolition on 9/11 such as 9/11 Mysteries – Part 1: Demolitions. He subsequently went on the record in support of at least a continuation of the previously established investigation—agreeing with 9/11 Commission member Bob Kerrey who, “thinks that there should be an open, running 9/11 commission.“ Having just acknowledged our position that 9/11 was an inside job, he elaborated:

“It’s not because, by the way, not because he believes what you believe. It’s because he is not sure they got all the sequencing right, and that kind of thing, and that there was stuff that the CIA wasn’t sharing with the committee.”

Since the Minnesota Supreme Court officially ended the nearly eight month long ordeal of a recount yesterday, Franken’s position on the issue of continued investigation of 9/11 has become all the more pertinent. He went on to dodge the question of whether the unexplained collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 is reason enough for a new investigation by promising to watch the videos he had been provided, but at least he didn’t scurry away repeating, “black helicopter stuff,” as Norm Coleman has when confronted on the issue of WTC 7’s complete omission from the 9/11 Commission’s report.

If Franken acts on his statement and furthers the investigation of 9/11, he would be joining fellow Minnesotan politicians such as Former Senator Mark Dayton and Former Vice President Walter Mondale who support a new 9/11 investigation or Former Governor Jesse Ventura who has become widely outspoken on the issue of the 9/11 Commission Report’s gross inadequacy and inaccuracy—exposing unanswered questions about 9/11 at nearly every mainstream media appearance in the last year.

Franken rides in to Congress on Monday on the coattails of the “change” campaign, but will he change from the direction Norm “The Patriot Act is very consistent with the Constitution” Coleman took this country and repeal the so-called Patriot, Military Commissions and other dangerously unconstitutional acts? Will he represent any of We Are Change’s causes such as reopening the investigation of 9/11? He can be a “blue team” pawn as the Democratic party inherits the illegal, totalitarian powers usurped by Bush or he can represent the interests of freedom-loving Americans, take seriously his oath to defend the Constitution and work to undo our fledgling dictatorship. His constituents in Minnesota demand no less of their public servants!
