NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a two-day Symposium '9/11: Justice in Focus' held Sept. 10th and 11th at historic Cooper Union Great Hall in New York City, renowned technical and legal professionals formally committed to further investigate and comprehensively prosecute the crimes of 9/11.
The Conference featured keynote addresses by former Chief Justice and Honorary President of the Supreme Court of Italy Ferdinando Imposimato and New York Times "Pentagon Papers" attorney Daniel Sheehan who joined a panel of experienced lawyers providing legal analysis of forensic-evidence testimony from licensed engineering and architectural professionals. Moderating were international human rights attorney William Pepper and New York University professor Mark Crispin Miller.
"We had the unprecedented opportunity to present before this esteemed panel of legal professionals the forensic evidence that three WTC skyscrapers, WTC 1 and 2 -- and WTC 7 not hit by any plane -- all featured the key signatures of controlled demolition," said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth founder and president Richard Gage, AIA.
"As Arthur Conan Doyle famously said, 'Once you've eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth'," said Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry Vice President Mick Harrison, "and the evidentiary presentations established these forensic facts beyond any reasonable doubt."
"And how did the official authorities deal with all of this [physical and eyewitness] evidence" of controlled demolitions?" asked Professor Emeritus Graeme MacQueen, a member of the 9/11 Consensus Panel and co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies. "The answer is simple. They didn't ... All my studies of the eyewitness testimonies conclude that explosions [independent of plane impacts and resulting fires] brought down these buildings."
"The scientific and legal consensus from the Symposium together with recent legislative actions by Congress -- the release of the '28 Pages' and unanimous votes for the Justice Against Victims of Terrorism Act (J.A.S.T.A) by both the House and the Senate -- greatly advanced the mission of the New York State Legislative Action Project for 9/11 Justice," said Project director Les Jamieson.
"The September 11th attacks are one of those high crimes that can cause the very foundations of the law to tremble," said renowned public interest attorney Daniel Sheehan. "In such cases, bringing the real perpetrators to justice will require far more than just concerted legal action. It will require a grassroots movement akin to a national political campaign."
The launch of just such a new nationwide grassroots organizing effort -- the 9/11 Truth Action Project [www.911TAP.org] -- was announced by coordinator William Jacoby.
Symposium Sponsors were Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, New York State Legislative Action Project for 9/11 Justice, 9/11 Consensus Panel, and 9/11 Truth Action Project.
