Secret Message From 9/11 Commission Co-Chair, Hidden Inside A Public Interview: "Please Re-Investigate!"

In a lengthy interview with CBC, Lee Hamilton, 9/11 Commission co-chair makes some stunning revelations. Remember, Hamilton is the guy who felt it necessary to co-author a book "Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission". The journalist who asks some sharp questions is Evan Solomon. The interview was done back in August.Lee Hamilton, 9/11 Commission Co-Chair

Here are some interesting tid-bits:

Question: Now, one of the stipulations, you write in the book, one of the ways that you thought that this ought to be successful, this report, the Commission Report, is on page 23, you said if the American people would accept the results as authoritative, and the recommendations.

And when I measure that against a Zogby poll done in May, that says now 42% of Americans say that "the U.S. government, and its 9/11 Commission, concealed or refused to investigate critical evidence that contradicts the official explanation of September 11th, saying there's a cover-up" - 42%, Mr. Hamilton - what does that say to you about the efficacy of the Commission's report?

Hamilton: Well, it’s dispiriting, it’s an unusually high number [....]

Question: [....] One question that people have is: why didn’t the Commission deal with the collapse Building 7, which some call the smoking gun? Why did this collapse at all?

Hamilton: Well, of course, we did deal with it. [....] Look, you’ve obviously gone through the report with a fine-toothed comb, you're raising a lot of questions - I can do the same thing...

The grand finale of the interview is this:

Question:: I just want to clarify something that you said earlier. You said that the Commission Report did mention World Trade Center Building 7 in it, what happened. It did mention it or it didn't?

Hamilton: The Commission reviewed the question of the Building 7 collapse. I don’t know specifically if it’s in the Report, I can’t recall that it is, but it, uh...
(WTF? Hamilton, Co-Chair of the Commission, and Co-Author of the "Inside Story" book "can't recall"??? Give me a break...)

Question:: I don’t think it was in the report.

Hamilton: OK, then I'll accept your word for that.
(WTF? Hamilton, Co-Chair of the Commission, and Co-Author of the "Inside Story" book "can't recall"??? Give me a break...)

Question:: There was a decision not to put it in the report?

Hamilton: I do not recall that was a specific discussion in the Commission and we rejected the idea of putting Building 7 in, I don't recall that. So I presume that the report was written without reference to Building 7 at all, because all of the attention, of course, was on the Trade tower buildings.
(WTF? Hamilton, Co-Chair of the Commission, and Co-Author of the "Inside Story" book has to "presume that the report was written without reference to Building 7 at all"??? Give me a break...)

Question:: And the black boxes on the planes: one bit of evidence I just got asked about, if it came up, was: the last 3 minutes of the black box on Flight 93 has not been made public or is missing, or I don't know what's happening. Was there any discussion as to what happened to those last three minutes?

Hamilton: I do not recall any reference to the black box.
(WTF? Hamilton, Co-Chair of the Commission, and Co-Author of the "Inside Story" book "doesn't recall" even the black box discussions??? Give me a break...)

Question:: Were they all found?

Hamilton: I do not know, off hand, I do not know.
(WTF? Hamilton, Co-Chair of the Commission, and Co-Author of "Inside Story" book does "not know" even if the black boxes were at all found??? Give me a break...)

A lot of gems are hiding in this piece. Just look at the following extracts first. Then, try to identify the secret message Mr. Hamilton is sending to the US public through his interview with an Canadian news outlet:

Hamilton: I don't know [....]
What caused the collapse of the buildings, to summarize it, was that the super-heated jet fuel melted the steel super-structure of these buildings and caused their collapse. There’s a powerful lot of evidence to sustain that point of view, including the pictures of the airplanes flying into the building. [....]
We believe [....]
We think [....]
That was our theory [....]
We cannot answer every question [....]
You cannot go down every track, you cannot answer conclusively every question. [....]
a lot of questions unanswered [....]
I 've got a lot of unanswered questions in my mind. [....]
We just couldn’t figure out [....]
I still don’t know [....]
We speculated in the report [....]
we simply weren’t able to answer [....]
you can’t trace everything down. [....]
it may have been [....]
I just don’t know. [....]
I don’t know the answer to your question. [....]
not necessarily would I know. I don't know what happened [....]
I don't know what they concluded. [....]
we do not think anybody profited from manipulation of airline stock prior to 9/11, there’s no evidence of that, I don't think. [....]
I don’t know anything about it. [....]
I do not recall us writing anything about it in the report. We may have but I don’t recall it. [....]
so far as I know [....]
we do not know precisely where that money came from [....]
I do not recall. [....]
we do not really know what the Vice President really did. [....]
We could find no documentary evidence [....]
there are a lot of things not answered [....]
this is all very disturbing [....]
I don’t know the answer to your question. [....]
I cannot answer every question with regard to 9/11. [....]
To say that there was no debris strains my recollection, I didn't remember it that way, I thought there was some debris. [....]
We did the best we could on it. We thought it was an airplane. [....]
I don’t believe for a minute that we got everything right. We wrote a first draft of history. [....]
it would be really rather remarkable if we got everything right [....]
People will be investigating 9/11 for the next hundred years in this country, and they’re going to find out some things that we missed here. [....]
(The Commission) got started late; we had a very short time frame - indeed, we had to get it extended; we did not have enough money - 3 million dollars to conduct an extensive investigation. We needed more [....]
there were all kinds of reasons we thought we were set up to fail. [....]
a lot of people have things to hide. [....]
the mandate did not ask us to identify people or even did not use the word 'accountability'. We did not want to go beyond our mandate. [....]
They gave us inaccurate information. [....]
All of us had our suspicions here, but we simply did not have the staff [....]
they did mislead us [....]
if my recollection serves me right [....]
I can go before any audience in America today and I can raise so many questions about 9/11 - raise questions, not answer questions, raise questions - about the investigation. And everbody in the audience will walk out saying 'the government misled us or lied to us.' [....]
we made a lot of judgments about the credibility of evidence. Were we right in every case? I suspect not. [....]
I know there were a lot of questions that we could not answer, with regard to FAA and NORAD and White House activity, and a lot of other things, we just can’t answer 'em. [....]
the question of the Building 7 collapse. I don’t know specifically if it’s in the Report, I can’t recall that it is, but it, uh... [....]
I do not recall that was a specific discussion in the Commission and we rejected the idea of putting Building 7 in, I don't recall that. [....]
I presume that the report was written without reference to Building 7 at all [....]
I do not recall any reference to the black box. [....]
I do not know, off hand, I do not know. [....]
I don't recall that [....]

(WTF? So many "don't know"s, "don't recall"s and "can't answer"s in one single interview?? Mr. Hamilton's surely must have been one of the first signatures under any petition that demands a new, full, independent investigation into The 9/11 Crime, no?)

(Stop it, Little Pipe -- don't try to be ironic. Are you just too dump to see the obvious??? This is serious: Mr. Hamilton is desperately trying to give secret signs to the US public. He really wants a new 9/11 investigation, but he can't say so himself -- that's why he is putting so much emphasize into his "don't know"s... Don't try to take the piss out of him, m-kay?)

That's an interesting

That's an interesting theory. Or it could be that he is trying the best he can to cover hs ass long enough to drop out of the lime light. Dick Cheney on Meet the Press did pretty much the same thing. Paraphrased: "I haven't seen that particular report", is all Cheney was willing to answer.

ALSO

more Watergate-style coverage of ass. They are, indeed, gettin' ready.

Growing up in the shadow of

Growing up in the shadow of the Watergate, I remember hearing a lot of "I don't recall Senator"s.  I get the feeling this guy is just getting some practice.

YEP!

Big YEP! Excellent point.

Govt. controlled 9/11 truth sites.

Since HUGE revelations such as this one, the Pentagon flight recorder data, the ridiculous Pentagon videos and several other MAJOR holes in the official fable are largely ignored by many so called 9/11 truth sites - it clearly means that they're largely controlled by some government cliques.

Don´t think this applies to this fine site though.

Revealing

Very revealing. Thank you for sharing. Glad to see a reporter with some cojones, albeit Canadian cojones (naturally).

Those are WAY too many "I don't knows" coming from the Co-Chair of the Commission appointed by the government to investigate the biggest attack on our nation's soil since Pearl Harbor.

What part of "investigate" did they not understand?

I don't know?

Reading more of this . . .

this is sad . . . they went into this thing with deliberate intent NOT to find the truth . . . to avoid the truth at all costs . . . so painfully obvious just reading this interview how this thing was "wrapped up" before the investigation even started. I'm seeing conspiracies within conspiracies now. A conspiracy to NOT investigate the truth, by the Commission appointed to do that very thing.

sigh . . .

Thanks!

I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time; I'm glad you saved me the trouble. Hamilton's interview would make excellent fodder for some sort of Jekyll/Hyde juxtaposition where his quotes are placed beside one another to show the internal contradictions apparently existing in his own mind regarding 9/11.

Why is Lee Hamilton so confused and uncertain about his own investigation and report?
