New at CARL: The Commission : the uncensored history of the 9/11 investigation

Check our holdings: The Commission : the uncensored history of the 9/11 investigation

Summary from the Book Jacket: "In 2002, the most important federal commission in decades was established to examine the events surrounding the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor. In 2004, the 9/11 Commission issued its unanimous report to broad acclaim." "Now, in this groundbreaking investigation of the 9/11 investigators, veteran New York Times journalist Philip Shenon reveals stunning shortcomings in the Commission's work - a series of oversights, omissions, and distortions that raise fundamental questions about 9/11 and the government's failure to prevent it." "The Commission is an eye-opening account of how Washington really works: the manipulations of politicians, the secrets of intelligence officers, the battles over information, the pursuit of truth."
