The Commission The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation by Philip Shenon

The Commission The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation


The Commission The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation by Philip Shenon

In a work of history that will make headlines, NEW YORK TIMES reporter Philip Shenon investigates the investigation of 9/11 and tells the inside story of the most important federal commission since the Warren Commission. Shenon uncovers startling new information about the inner workings of the 9/11 commission and its relationship with the Bush White House. THE COMMISSION will change our understanding of the 9/11 investivation - and of the attacks themselves.


Shenon is a skilful writer and storyteller as well as a dogged reporter. He makes bureaucratic warfare exciting, because he has a keen grasp of human frailty and folly . . . [The Commission] is the real back story of 9/11 * Evan Thomas, New York TIMES *
