S.F. attorney: Bush allowed 9/11

by BY DAVID KIEFER of The Examiner Staff Wednesday, Jun. 19, 2002 at 5:33 PM

Reprinted from Sunday's SF Examiner, SF attorney Hilton, a former aide to Bob Dole, claims he has a stronger argument that Bush knew about 911 plot beforehand.

S.F. attorney: Bush allowed 9/11

BY DAVID KIEFER

Of The Examiner Staff*

Stanley Hilton now figures his case is stronger because of a coalition of attorneys, victims' families and

bipartisan legislators who gathered in Washington on Monday to condemn the government's lack of action in preventing the Sept. 11 attacks. Hilton is the San Francisco attorney who filed a billion lawsuit in U.S. District Court on June 3 against President Bush and other government officials for "allowing" the terrorist attacks to occur.

Among Hilton's allegations: Bush conspired to create the Sept. 11 attacks for his own political gain and has been using Osama bin Laden as a scapegoat. Hilton said he has information that bin Laden died several years ago of kidney failure.

"I hope it will expose the fact that there are numbers of people in the government, including Bush and his top assistants, who wanted this to happen," Hilton said.

His class-action suit named 10 defendants, including Vice President Dick Cheney, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta.

Hilton said he represents the families of 14 victims and that 400 plaintiffs are involved nationwide. White House spokesman Ken Macias and Department of Justicet public affairs officer Charles Miller each said their departments were unaware of the lawsuit.

Hilton, Sen. Bob Dole's former aide, has been publicly critical of conservatives in books he has written about Dole and the Clinton sex scandal. Hilton, who said he has sources within the FBI, CIA, the National Security Agency and Naval intelligence, demands Bush's impeachment and believes the truth will come out in trial.

Hilton claims the Bush administration ignored intelligence information, refused to round up suspected terrorists beforehand, and during the hijackings refused to disable pilot controls and switch to a ground-based remote system. He claims the government benefited from installing a puppet

Afghan government friendly to U.S. oil interests. Hilton also says Bush used bin Laden's antagonist image to create a public frenzy, which allowed the Bush administration to tighten its political grip.
