9-11 Widow Files rico Lawsuit

public signatures sought to support Investigation

PHILADELPHIA, Jan 6 -- Ellen Mariani, whose husband died in the
September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks when UAL 175 was flown into the
World Trade Center, has filed suit in a US District Court alleging Bush,
Cheney, Ashcroft, Rumsfeld and other co-defendents had sufficient
warning to stop the terrorist attacks but failed to either warn or
protect the public.





According to a recent CBS News, the Republican 9-11 Commission Chairman
agrees:



9/11 Chair: Attack Was Preventable

(CBS News -- December 18, 2003) For the first time, the chairman of the
independent commission investigating the Sept. 11

attacks is saying publicly that 9/11 could have and should have been
prevented, reports CBS News Correspondent Randall

Pinkston....



Appointed by the Bush administration, Kean, a former Republican governor
of New Jersey, is now pointing fingers inside the

administration and laying blame.



http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/12/17/eveningnews/main589137.shtml



Mariani's suit also charges the Bush Administration with burying
evidence of its failure and refusing to release vital information.



Philadelphia Attorney Philip J. Berg, who filed the suit on Mariani's
behalf, says the Administration must be held accountable. Berg launched
the suit on November 26, and has since put up a website explaining the
details of Mariani vs Bush, et al. The Bush Administration is currently
trying to have the charges dismissed in court.



Public support is critical, says Berg, who has posted an online
petition.  "We need at least a million signatures for them to take it
seriously." He added that mounting a class action is also being
considered. Concerned citizens are urged to read and sign the petition
here:
