Just found this on the BBC website - surprised no one has already mentioned this . Lets hope some answers are obtained.

11 September inquiry opens

The 11 September attacks traumatised America
The first public hearing into the 11 September attacks is under way in New York.
The inquiry - taking place not far from Ground Zero - is hearing accounts from members of the emergency and security services and relatives of those who died in the attack.

The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks in the United States was established by Congress late last year.

The Bush administration had for months resisted the creation of such a body, but was forced to bow to pressure from families of the victims.


The relatives then forced the government's choice as chairman of the investigation - former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger - to step down, in favour of a person seen as being more neutral.

A former New Jersey governor, Tom Kean, heads the 10-member commission, which is examining why the attacks occurred and what precautions can be taken to prevent further terrorism.

The commission is mandated to provide an account of who may be to blame for intelligence oversights.

"We need accountability. We need answers, if we must live and work in this great nation," Kristin Breitwesier, whose husband died in the World Trade Centre, told ABC news.

'Criminal charges'

The commission may refer its findings to criminal prosecutors, reports The New York Post.

"If they find something they feel warrants an investigation, they have every right to recommend that prosecutors pursue certain things they think are criminal," commission spokesman Al Feltzenberg told the newspaper.

The BBC's New York correspondent Jane Standley says the heavy security evident in New York since the start of the war in Iraq may be a topic on many people's minds.

So, anyone want to bet on the outcome of this investigation?

Hmmm, are they dusting off the Warren commission?

Maybe if they were focused on other things such as blow jobs, 9-11 would not have happened.I think, once they get too close to anything that may be a threat to Bush & co.the investigation will be called off.I don't think the families should get their hopes built up.Bush wants people to think Iraq alone is responsible,case closed!

how is bush making people think iraq is responsible for 9/11? because he's showing ties between al qaeda and iraq? pfft.. everyone knows bin laden is from saudi arabia, so i'm sure more people would have a problem against them than iraq, but because everyone believes every little thing bush says, everyone forgot about saudi arabia... for now at least. and well.. it looks like iran is next on bush's agenda......

After war ends in Iraq, Bush to halt nuclear weapons program in Iran - source

When war ends in Iraq, the Bush administration will give "extremely high priority" to halting a secret nuclear weapons program in neighboring Iran, a senior administration official said Monday.

"The Bush White House is moving to defuse a mounting controversy over whether it is cooperating with the new national commission set up to investigate the 9-11 terror attacks."

"The action comes as some commission members and family members of 9-11 victims voice concerns that the White Houseís private actions donít match its public words.

Disputes over funding and security clearances have considerably slowed the commissionís work and raised fears that the panelówhich is charged with getting to the bottom of what really happened on 9/11ówill never be able to complete its work by the time its 18-month statutory mandate expires next year.
