New David Ray Griffin Article on the 9/11 Commission Report
Omissions & Distortions in The 9/11 Commission Report: A Significant Pattern
This article is a summation of the testimony given by Griffin at the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference 2005 (September 21-24, Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC) for the session, Ã‚Â“The 9/11 Omission: What the Commission Got Wrong,Ã‚Â” September 23, 2005, sponsored by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-GA)
There have been two main theories about 9/11, each of which is a conspiracy theory. The official conspiracy theory says that the attacks were planned and carried out entirely by al-Qaeda. The alternative theory says that the attacks could not have succeeded without the involvement of forces within our own government.
In examining The 9/11 Commission Report, I have focused on how it dealt with evidence supportive of the alternative theory. I have found that it did so by distorting or simply ignoring this evidence. This is no surprise, because the man running the Commission, Philip Zelikow, was essentially a member of the Bush-Cheney administration. But it is a fact that needs to be brought to light.
Because there are so many omissions and distortions---in my book I identified at least 115---I can point to a significant percentage of them only by moving through my representative list quite quickly.
