9/11 Comission found Pentagon coverup - kept it out of report

The washington post is running an article today uncovering some disturbing evidence that the official 9/11 Comission found a coverup by the Pentagon and others of the events that really happened on September 11th 2001. From the article:
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.

Read the full story here.

Another interesting quote from the article says:
"We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us," said Thomas H. Kean, the former New Jersey Republican governor who led the commission. "It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied."

And finally this:
"I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described," John Farmer, a former New Jersey attorney general who led the staff inquiry into events on Sept. 11, said in a recent interview. "The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years. . . . This is not spin. This is not true."

Perhaps the worm is turning and some of the truth will finally come out.
