The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions

by David Griffin

This detailed, incisive, and thoroughly referenced book exposes the 9/11 Commission's report as a sham. It begins by revealing that the "National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States" which describes itself as "an independent, bipartisan commission," was guided by executive director Philip Zelikow, an insider in both the first and second Bush administrations.

The book consists of two main parts: the first examines evidence contradicting the official story, and the second looks at the commission's attempt to absolve the US military of responsibility by crafting a new timeline of response to the attack. The first part contains the following chapters:

  1. The Alleged Hijackers
  2. The Collapse of the World Trade Center Buildings
  3. The Strike on the Pentagon
  4. The Behavior of Bush and His Secret Service
  5. Advance Information about the Attacks
  6. Osama, the bin Ladens, and the Saudi Royal Family
  7. The Saudi Flights
  8. FBI Obstructions
  9. Pakistan and Its ISI
  10. Possible Motives of the Bush Administration

Chapter 2 provides one of the most concise yet thorough refutations of the official account of the collapses of WTC 1, 2, and 7 to date.

This book complements Griffin's earlier book The New Pearl Harbor and could become even more important because it so throughly devastates the widely accepted Commission Report.
