Citing the need for national reconciliation and atonement, Green Party Congressional Nominee Joseph Diaferia (NY-16) has unveiled his long awaited proposal for a Federal Truth Commission. Since entering the race for the U.S. House of Representatives last March, Diaferia has called for congressional investigations or inquiries into the clandestine Bilderberg Conference, increased military activity in the skies over the U.S., strange artistry in the Denver International Airport terminal, and the attacks of September 11, 2001. Now, Diaferia is seeking to investigate and/or expose a host of government programs and historic events hitherto concealed from the American public.

Said Diaferia, “Sadly, the United States bears a grim history. It is a history legion with events that would evoke public outrage if widely known. From atrocities committed upon our own people as well as people of other nations, to collusion and complicity with history’s worst mass-murderers, there is a hidden history that belies this country’s legendary beneficence. Events have been deliberately kept out of America’s collective consciousness, lest the American people grow more curious and begin questioning the very system under which they live.”

Asked, if he feared being labeled seditious or “un-American”, Diaferia responded, “My plan to assemble such a commission is, in effect, very pro-American. That so much of our history is hidden actually underscores the very decency of the American people. Indeed, Americans are a great people and our rulers know this. For [the rulers’] purposes, they obviously wouldn’t risk having millions of Americans smashing their TV sets and taking to the streets in outrage upon learning what their government is doing or has done. So [our rulers] have to lie, hide, or obfuscate information so that only the noblest picture of our history emerges. Unfortunately, this noble picture is largely false. Conventional history books are replete with falsehood and self-congratulation. Their rhapsodic narratives leave the majority of Americans believing, for example, that Columbus was a heroic adventurer, that [Lee Harvey] Oswald killed [President] Kennedy, and that the United States has been only a civilizing and democratizing force for good in the world. Indeed, if I were a Rockefeller, Carnegie, DuPont, or Vanderbilt, I would want only the most adulatory representation of our history to reach mass audiences. “

According to Diaferia, the proposed Commission would be an assemblage of historians and political scientists selected from numerous countries including the United States, and that each continent (with the obvious exception of Antarctica) would be represented proportionately. A smaller, governing committee consisting only of American citizens would have power of subpoena.

The historical time frame to be investigated would begin at the end of World War II, and continue through to the present. The Commission would have the dual function of exposing and publicizing established historical facts hidden heretofore, and investigating events whose evidence remains tentative. For example, Operation Northwoods, now irrefutable since its related documents have been declassified, would be publicized assiduously, while allegations of a CIA role in the murder of John Lennon would first be investigated and then exposed if necessary.
According to Diaferia, the “enormity” of the 9/11 conspiracy is such that a separate investigative commission should be assembled.

Diaferia reports that the work of said Commission could take up to a decade to complete as “there are so many events and government programs that need to be explored”. Diaferia has appended a list of items that he would ask the commission to investigate, and he invites readers to search engine any of the listed items. They are as follows:

Diaferia, a professor at numerous colleges and university in the New York/New Jersey area since 1996, believes “we can only move forward as a nation and as the the great people that we are, when there has been a thoroughgoing and introspective examination of our history. We are too great a people to overlook the very things about America that most other countries are painfully aware of.”
