HISTORY OF U.S. POLICY
AND COVERT NETWORKS
The US government has a long history of covert operations and
covert policies, undertaken outside public purview or control by Constitutional
institutions. Moreover, many of these operations and policies are properly
described as extragovernmental, i.e., implemented by associations that are only
partly based in US government agencies, but which pursue their own agendas that
are often at cross-purposes with official policy-makers. One term for this is
"parapolitics"—the practice of political influence in secret by
self-appointed, unaccountable groups. Both government-approved covert operations
and covert parapolitical networks often have countenanced deliberate support for
the rise of groups later designated to be "enemies" of the United
States. Of the many such examples, especially germane are the decades of US
support for radical Islamism in general, as well as specific US government
participation in creating the network around Osama bin Ladin and in exploiting
that network both as a support in achieving covert policy goals, and as an overt
enemy of convenience.

November 19, 2004, the "Justice for 9/11" Steering Committee
submitted a Citizens' Complaint and Petition to the offices of the
Attorney General of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, citing probable cause
for an independent grand jury investigation to examine unsolved crimes
committed in connection with the events of September 11, 2001. We
are publishing the complete Complaint and Petition
online in this space as a living, growing document.
Nine members of September 11 families, Ground Zero first responders, and
citizens of New York have signed
on as the first complainants. We call on citizens to support this
action, to initiate similar actions in other states, and to sign the
online petition of solidarity.
To discuss joining the coalition, filing support briefs and initiating actions in other
states and jurisdictions, please
