The 9/11 Commission's Report, by popular reckoning, has made an impression with its heft, its footnotes, its portrayal of the confusion of that sobering day, its detail, its narrative finesse. Yet under the magnifying glass of David Ray Griffin, eminent theologian and author of The New Pearl Harbor, the report appears much shabbier. In fact, there are holes in the places where detail ought to be thickest: Is it possible that Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld has given three different stories of what he was doing the morning of September 11, and that the Commission combines two of them and ignores eyewitness reports to the contrary? That the Commission fails even to mention Coleen Rowley, FBI whistleblower and Time person of the year? Griffin's critique of the Kean-Zelikow report makes clear that that the Commission charged with investigating all of the facts surrounding 9/11 has succeeded in obscuring, rather than unearthing, the truth.

Dr. David Ray Griffin, a retired University Professor said about this "Report": "This Report of the Zelikow Commission is totally fiction - I did not find one single true sentence in it." Dr. Griffin gave lectures to adult audiences at several American Universities, he is a truthful, venerable person.
