  • Able Danger Blog: Why We Need a New 9/11 Commission
    relating to al Qaeda and 9 11 Zelikow provided a limited and censored group of documents to the commissioners but only in a secure location Commissioners could take handwritten notes about these documents but these notes could not be removed from the classified location nor used in writing the Commission s final report Zelikow designed the investigation so that staff was divided into individual teams each team addressing one specific part of the investigation Thus no one segment of the staff was seeing the whole picture The official excuse for 9 11 is that nobody connected the dots and yet Zelikow set up the Commission s own investigation so that no single investigator could feasibly connect the dots of the failure that occurred on 9 11 The other person given primary access to the administration s documents was Commissioner Jamie Gorelick who ironically was also interviewed by the Commission as a witness regarding her former position as deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration The Family Steering Committee issued a press release indicating their total dismay over the conflicts of interest exhibited by Zelikow and Gorelick We should note here that Philip Zelikow was the primary author of the Administration s 2002 version of the National Security Strategy generally known as NSS 2002 which turned the concept of preventive preemptive warfare into official American policy The NSS 2000 said among other things The events of September 11 2001 opened vast new opportunities Zelikow apparently believed that 9 11 had turned out to be a good thing Then he wouldn t be inclined during the investigation to focus on any facts that would point the finger at specific federal officials as this might spoil those opportunities Investigation and Questioning by Commission Not Tough Enough By late autumn of 2003 it became apparent to the Family Steering Committee that the questioning of the hearings was not tough enough and that the hearings were not identifying specific problems and holding people accountable Witnesses would contradict their prior testimony and the Commission would fail to ask them why This happened for example when Jane Garvey director of the FAA testified before the Commission When she first appeared before the Commission she laid out a timeline that described when the FAA knew the airplanes on 9 11 were confirmed to be hijacked This is important because none of the protocols in place for hijackings were followed on 9 11 and none of the failures were explained When she was invited back for a second time she submitted a new timeline and the commissioners never pressed for a specific answer as to why Garvey had changed her story When Kristen Breitweiser of the Family Steering Committee asked a commissioner why more pointed questions weren t being asked of the witnesses she was told It s not the Washington way Investigation Failed to Address Most of the Important Questions The Family Steering Committee FSC has reviewed the 9 11 Commission Report in depth and compared it to
