McKinney: "American People Should See the Evidence Too"

September 25, 2001

(WASHINGTON, DC) "There has been much ado about providing evidence linking Osama bin Laden to the tragedies of September 11, 2001. Secretary Powell has said that our allies will receive irrefutable proof of the bin Laden ties to this tragic day. Before the use of force occurs, the American people must see this proof too," Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) stated.

Congresswoman McKinney is the Ranking Member of the International Operations and Human Rights Subcommittee of the House International Relations Committee, and is also a member of the House Armed Services Committee.

"We've lost thousands of people already, and as the Administration begins its preparations for war, every American and the families of our soldiers and victims of the hijackings deserve to know that justice for those responsible is what motivates our actions and not just convenient scapegoating," McKinney continued.

In response to demands from the U.S. that Afghanistan turn over suspected terrorist Osama bin Laden, the Taliban government has asked for proof of bin Laden's involvement in the attacks of September 11, 2001. Other nations, including Saudi Arabia and France, have similarly requested information proving bin Laden's group's responsibility for these attacks.

"Certainly Afghanistan won't end up having more information about our evidence than will the American people who have suffered this tremendous injury," McKinney exclaimed.
