My only regret from our procedings on April 14, 2007 is that the Jurors did not receive from me information which might have moved them to direct the further investigation of at least two other individuals, MICHAEL CHERTOFF and BERNARD KERIK, on one or more Charges. Congratulations to the Jurors for their splendid courage, deep backgrounds of knowledge, acute questions, and thoroughgoing determination. Their initiative, using the Grand Jury's means of Presentment (a Presentment 'is an accusation issued by the grand jury on its own knowledge, without any bill of indictment having been previously drawn up by the prosecutor'--Columbia University Press Encyclopedia) led to the charging of fourteen individuals listed below.
Congratulations to the Jurors for their big step toward truly countering terrorism.
May their courageous step further Grand Juries and more by concerned citizens around the world. May it further an unstoppable movement.
May we all--all truth-seeking citizens of the world now and the world to come--reach answers about the crimes of 9/11/01 that prevent more of such crimes-more of such atrocities against civilian populations--in our futures.
Submitted by Don Paul, Chief Prosecutor for the San Diego Citizens' Grand Jury, on April 26, 2007.)
