9/11 Commission


The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission, was set up on November 27, 2002, "to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks", including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks.

The commission was also mandated to provide recommendations designed to guard against future attacks.

Chaired by former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean, the commission consisted of five Democrats and five Republicans. The commission was created by Congressional legislation, with the bill signed into law by President George W. Bush.

The commission's final report was lengthy and based on extensive interviews and testimony. Its primary conclusion was that the failures of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation permitted the terrorist attacks to occur and that had these agencies acted more wisely and more aggressively, the attacks could potentially have been prevented.

After the publication of its final report, the commission closed on August 21, 2004

The 9/11 Commission Report: "A 571 page lie" 

The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission) was a supposedly independent all-encompassing investigation into the events of 9/11. Such an enquiry was initially resisted by the Bush administration who saw it as an waste of resources. When public pressure finally forced them to act, the administration placed many obstacles in the enquiry's path, including giving it extremely meager funding and by putting Henry Kissinger in charge. Kissinger resigned facing questions about potential conflicts of interest.

Kissinger resigns as head of 9/11 Commission

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Facing questions about potential conflicts of interest, Henry Kissinger resigned Friday as chairman of the September 11 commission.
President Bush named Kissinger to lead the 10-member commission last month, dropping his longstanding opposition to an independent probe of the events leading up to the September 11 terrorist attacks... (CNN, 13 December 2004)

The report, which was published in August 2004, has been criticized by philosopher and former Professor of Theology David Ray Griffin, who has written two books and given lectures on the subject of the attacks. In his book The 9/11 Commission: Omissions and Distortions, he dissects the official enquiry, and has described it as a "571 page lie". Griffin has summarised more than 100 points from the report that he describes as implicit or explicit lies, some of which include:



Richard Clarke - National Security Expert


Book: Your Government Failed You




9/11 Truth: The 9/11 Commission Report is Fraudulent ( 11 mins) !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Video presents evidence that the 9/11 Commission Report should be discarded as a politically motivated whitewash. A new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001 is needed

- about Philip Zenekow is close friends w Condoleeza Rice – and that he was a key advisor in setting up the strategies for the National Security Counsel and that he wrote the “Pre-emptive Strategy” used for the War in Iraq… Families for 9/11 asked for him to resign, but he refused!!

- Richard Clarke ….. Wistleblower !!!

Richard A. Clarke is an internationally-recognized expert on security, including homeland security, national security, cyber security, and counterterrorism. He is currently an on-air consultant for ABC News and teaches at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. -Clarke served the last three Presidents as a senior White House Advisor. Over the course of an unprecedented 11 consecutive years of White House service, he held the titles of:

  • Special Assistant to the President for Global Affairs

  • National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism

  • Special Advisor to the President for Cyber Security

Expert Panel Reports False Accounts by US Political and Military Leaders on 9/11

- Massive National War Games on September 11th Raise Further Questions

NEW YORK, June 5, 2012 – New evidence shows that the September 11th activities of former President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were falsely reported by official sources.

The 20-member 9/11 Consensus Panel analyzed evidence from press reports, FOIA requests, and archived 9/11 Commission file documents to produce eight new studies, released today.

The international Panel also discovered that four massive aerial practice exercises traditionally held in October were in full operation on 9/11. The largest, Global Guardian, held annually by NORAD and the US Strategic and Space Commands, had originally been scheduled for October 22-31 but was moved, along with Vigilant Guardian, to early September….

… Most intriguing is the mystery of who was running the Pentagon’s war-room during the critical early hours.

… When Did Cheney Authorize the Shoot-down of Civilian Planes?

… Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld’s Behavior between 9:00 and 10:00

The 9/11 Commission absolved Donald Rumsfeld of any responsibility for what happened after 9:03 that morning by claiming that, in the first hour of the White House video teleconference, “none of the [Defense] personnel involved in managing the crisis [participated].”21 Reports by both Richard Clarke and Robert Andrews, however, show that Rumsfeld participated in this videoconference during this crucial hour. - The 9/11 Commission also absolved Rumsfeld from any involvement

Norman Mineta's Sec. of Transportation




Norman Mineta's Secretary of Transportation – Testimony at the 9/11 hearings ( 4 mins)

Bush Knew of 9/11. Cheney Forced NORAD to Stand Down

The thing that sticks out = Cheney knew about an incoming flight! What were the orders? If it was for a shoot down, why weren't the Pentagon, Capitol building and White House evacuated... What if the orders were to let the incoming aircraft hit?

Cheney's Stand-down Order !!!!!

In giving evidence to the 9/11 Congressional Commission, and despite coercive questioning to the contrary, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta described how Dick Cheney was informed well in advance that a plane was headed for the Pentagon but consciously failed to issue a shoot-down order. From the testimony:

"There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, 'The plane [headed for the Pentagon] is 50 miles out [...] The plane is 30 miles out.' And when it got down to, 'The plane is 10 miles out,' the young man also said to the vice president, 'Do the orders still stand?' And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, 'Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?' Well, at the time I didn't know what all that meant.

Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission - 2006


In the words of the commission’s co-chairmen, this is the compelling inside story of how the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States—more commonly known as the 9/11 Commission—managed to succeed against all odds in producing a report that made clear what went wrong and why.

The mandate of the 9/11 Commission was daunting and all-encompassing. In its investigation of the events leading up to and including September 11, 2001, the commission had to examine U.S. diplomacy, military policy, intelligence agencies, law enforcement, border and aviation security, and congressional oversight, as well as the immediate response to the terrorist attacks, while also investigating the lethal enemy al Qaeda.

The creation of the 9/11 Commission was blocked for months by the Bush administration, and after its inception in December 2002 the commission spent months mired in a series of controversies—the resignation of its first chairman, Henry Kissinger, and vice-chairman, George Mitchell; an inadequate budget; an extraordinarily polarized atmosphere leading up to the 2004 presidential election; the conflicting demands of various interest groups; the distrust of the victims’ families; difficulties in obtaining access to highly classified documents and to al Qaeda detainees; and a media eager to record stumbles and gaffes. The obstacles were great, and the expectations for a blue-ribbon panel are never high—yet somehow the 9/11 Commission overcame everything that might have thwarted it and succeeded beyond anyone’s greatest expectation, holding a series of hearings that riveted the nation, producing a unanimous and widely heralded report that became a national best seller, and issuing recommendations that led to the most significant reform of America’s national security agencies in decades.

The 9/11 Commission report slaked the national thirst for accountability. Here for the first time is the story of how the commission came together to produce its landmark document.
