White House Press Briefing with Scott McClellan
Wednesday, September 10, 2003 - 12:30 PM
by Russell Mokhiber

Mokhiber: I've got two things.

A group of family members of victims of September 11th have gotten together in a group called Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. And they, over the past year, have written to the President four times asking for a meeting. They want him, according to the letter, to stop using our family members killed on September 11th as a reason for taking action that will cause the deaths of other innocent family members. Why has the President not met with them?

Scott McClellan: I don't know that you -- if you want to give me the specific names, I'll be glad to look into it, Russ. I don't know -- I don't know every piece of correspondence the President receives off the top of my head.

Mokhiber: They have written a book September 11 -- Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. I'll get you the names of the family members. The other is, your father, Barr McClellan, has written a book that's coming out next month. It's called "Blood, Money and Power: How LBJ Killed JFK." And I'm wondering if you agree with your father that President Johnson was behind the assassination of President Kennedy?

Scott McClellan: Thank you for the opportunity, but I'm not going to have any comment on it. Thanks.
