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 Zelikow’s close ties to the Bush Administration, and specifically, then National Security Agency head Condoleeza Rice.

In New York Times reporter Philip Shenon’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 Zelikow’s ties proven correct?

We’ll hear the second part of this interview next week on the Evening News.
