Despite these latest disclosures, the vast majority of materials gathered during the investigation of 9/11 remains a secret, even over the wishes of the 9/11 commissioners. Among that information is a 30-page summary of the commission’s interview with President George W. Bush and Vice President Cheney; black box data; minutes from a secret, high-level “continuity of government” meeting; and information on America’s overseas intelligence-gathering on al Qaeda. http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/09/08/military-officials-ignored-cheneys-911-shoot-down-order/

Note: 'Part I. General

The commission convened on November 26, 2002 (441 days after the attack) and their final report was issued on July 22, 2004.

Rutgers News Release:

New Book by Dean John Farmer of Rutgers Law School–Newark Details Lessons to Be Learned From Mistakes of 9/11

http://news.rutgers.edu/medrel/news-releases/2009/09/new-book-by-dean-joh-20090908

Quoting:

At some level of government,” says Dean Farmer, “at some point in time, a decision was made not to tell the truth about the national response to the attacks on the morning of 9/11. We owe the truth to the families of the victims of 9/11. We owe it to the American public as well, because only by understanding what has gone wrong in the past can we assure our nation’s safety in the future.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/01/AR2006080101300_pf.html

quoting John Farmer:

"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described," John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true."

quoting KEAN

"We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied."


Baltimore Chronicle Commentary

Quoting James Ridgeway

In a just-released book called Ground Truth, John Farmer, senior counsel to the 9/11 Commission and now dean of Rutgers Law School, declares that at an early stage in its investigation, the Commission

James Ridgeway quoting John Farmer

{the commission} discovered that what had occurred that morning — that is, what government and military officials had told Congress, the Commission, the media, and the public about who knew what when — was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue....At some level of the government, at some point in time ... there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened.

The 9/11 Comission report lied about the construction of the towers:

"the outside of each tower was covered by a frame of 14-inch-wide steel columns; the centers of the steel columns were 40 inches apart.These exterior walls bore most of the weight of the building. The interior core ofthe buildings was a hollow steel shaft, in which elevators and stairwells were grouped." (source 911 Commission Report page 558)

Kucinich Reads Impeachment Article #34: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR0Y5o-pC3w


"It's been painfully obvious the administration not only fought the creation of the commission but that their objective was the war in Iraq, and one of the notions that was built on was there was a direct connection between al Qaida and 9/11 and Saddam Hussein. There was not. So therefore they didn't want the 9/11 commission to get going. What you have is the fear from the White House that the commission would uncover pretty quickly the fact that one of four legs that the war stood on was nonexistent. So they slow-walked it, and they continue to slow-walk it." -Senator and former 911 Commissioner Max Cleland (source)
