Karl Rove Is Questioned About His Involvement With the 9/11 Commission by Philly 9/11 Truth
Karl Rove, speaking at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, gave a detailed account of his activities on the morning of 9/11. Rove chronicled his movements on September the 11th 2001, starting by explaining that he accompanied Bush to Booker Elementary, and ending with his boarding of Air Force One. Rove took several questions from the audience, during which many questioners heavily criticized Rove for his role in facilitating the Iraq War and endorsing the curtailment of civil liberties. Reporters took the opportunity to ask the former White House puppeteer about allegations that he somehow influenced the 9/11 Commission. In a recent interview on Democracy Now, Philip Zelikow was challenged about the White House intervening into the 9/11 investigation - http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5499325790906729150&q=philip+zelikow+democracy+now&total=6&start=0&num=10&so=0&ty... - during which Zelikow denied that the conversations he had with Karl Rove had relevance to the Commission's investigation. Much like Zelikow, when confronted with the issue Karl Rove expressed that these conversations were not about 9/11. Perhaps Rove was involved, but maybe he was not. Questions still linger however; who did Zelikow confer with at the White House and why did he implore his secretary to delete phone logs?
