The Honorable Robert S. Mueller, III
Federal Bureau of Investigation
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001

Dear Director Mueller,

On behalf of a group of 9/11 family members, we are writing to request a meeting with your office regarding the recent news reports that the FBI has opened a preliminary inquiry into the allegation that News Corporation journalists may have attempted to hack into the private cell phones of 9/11 victims and possibly their relatives. The families that we represent have and continue to be prominently involved in speaking out publicly on matters relating to 9/11. They are concerned about the allegation of potential hacking.

We commend the FBI for opening a preliminary inquiry into this serious issue and are requesting a meeting to ascertain the scope, goals and timetable of the inquiry. We are interested in cooperating with your office to determine if such hacking was attempted and/or occurred.

The 9/11 families have already suffered through the most horrific tragedies. It is upsetting that there now exists an allegation that a newspaper would seek to illegally obtain information about their love ones, and perhaps even their own personal lives, and exploit it for profit. We need to determine whether or not such unconscionable acts in fact took place.

We await your response. Thank you.


Norman Siegel
