Author of "The Commission" speaks with WMNF02/15/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:
The official Commission that was formed by Congress to investigate the 9/11 terrorist attack in the U.S. was shrouded in controversy from its inception.
First and foremost, many family members of those killed on 9/11 felt the inclusion of Executive Director Phillip Zelikow was irresponsible because of Zelikowâ€™s close ties to the Bush Administration, and specifically, then National Security Agency head Condoleeza Rice.
In New York Times reporter Philip Shenonâ€™s powerful new book, called The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Commission, the opposition among Democratic members of the Commission to Zelikow is described in full.
WMNF recently spoke with Philip Shenon, and asked him directly, if those concerns about Zelikowâ€™s ties proven correct?
Weâ€™ll hear the second part of this interview next week on the Evening News.
