9/11 Commission--The Uncensored History

Think Progress reports that Philip Shenon's new book---The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation--reveals that Philip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission executive director, interfered with the report. The Commission members were to have no contact with the White House. Yet Zelikow consulted Karl Rove on a frequent basis.

Furthermore, the other commission members wanted to submit a report stating that Rice's performance amount[ed] to incompetence. However, it is allegeded that Zelikow prevented this. Zelikow is alleged to have connections with the New American Century and was hired by Condi Rice when he finished his 9/11 commission job.

9/11 was never given the independent investigation that it deserved. Hopefully, there will be some material that will survive the Bush White House so that someday we will be able to figure out what did happen.

Initially world opinion was with us like never before. You can view images of some reactions from around the globe here. It may give you some idea of the value of world opinion that the Bush administration squandered in their lust for raising the price of oil. The Bush Cabal has been a true American tragedy.

I hope you have all read what Wikipedia wrote about Philip Zelikow - before they changed it in June 2006...
