9/11 Commission Report - Part II listen02/18/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
When the 9/11 Commission Report was published in 2004, it received raves and was nominated for a National Book Award.
New York Times reporter Philip Shenon has written a behind-the-scenes look at the many controversies that were ongoing inside the Commission, some of which is publicly known, much of it not.
Itâ€™s all in his new book, The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Commission.
In the second part of our interview, WMNF asked Shenon about former Florida Democratic Sen. Bob Grahamâ€™s complaints.
Graham was on the Senate Intelligence Committee when Congress did its own investigation of the 9/11 attacks â€“ a report that was issued before the independent 9/11 Commission was formed.
But Graham was extremely angry at the congressional report, because he believed it went unbelievedly soft on the Saudi government.
