On July 16, 2021, AE911Truth joined the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry and 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine in filing a petition with the US Supreme Court in the group’s case against the FBI and the US Department of Justice related to the FBI’s 9/11 Review Commission.
Congress mandated the FBI to form the 9/11 Review Commission in 2014 for the purpose of conducting an independent assessment of all 9/11-related evidence known to the FBI that had not been considered by the 9/11 Commission.
The original petition detailed seven counts of evidence not assessed by the FBI in the commission’s 2015 report. Count one, joined by AE911Truth, was the evidence known to the FBI of the World Trade Center’s explosive demolition.
On Friday, July 16, 2021, the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry Litigation Director, Mick Harrison, and Washington D.C. attorney John Clifford filed a Petition for Certiorari to the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Robert McIlvaine, and Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth.
The First Amended Complaint filed in the District Court on August 30, 2019, requested the Court to order the FBI to comply with a mandate from Congress to perform an independent assessment of evidence known to the FBI that was not considered by the original 9/11 Commission related to any facts that contributed in any manner to the terrorist attacks of 9/11. The First Amended Complaint addressed seven areas of important 9/11 evidence that the FBI’s 2015 9/11 Review Commission failed to assess and ignored completely. Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth joined this lawsuit on Count one concerning the evidence of controlled demolition (use of explosives) at the World Trade Center on 9/11.
The seven areas of evidence addressed in the First Amended Complaint related to: 1) Explosives used in the World Trade Center destruction, 2) Individuals known publicly as the “High Fivers” or “Dancing Israelis” who were seen photographing and videotaping the World Trade Center attacks and celebrating, 3) Destruction of photograph evidence related to the “High Fivers,” 4) Saudi financing and support for some of the alleged 9/11 hijackers,
