You have some valid points and no one is proclaiming to understand this operation with perfect clarity. However, continuing to post statements that
the 9/11 report is filled with 'lies and obfuscations' and then not being able to point them out with section, chapter, paragraph and sentence just
defeats the entire debate you progress.
The 9/11 report has some serious flaws and it was never meant to be a detailed storybook of the events. Using those flaws to throw a blanket over the
whole effort and dismiss it as 'lies and deception' is not debate, it's repression of discussion that show little effort has been put fourth to
understand the difficultly of the telling of a highly sensitive matter.
My knowledge of that report along with the appendix and notes on the executive sessions is profound. I can point out dozens of instances(about 40 in
all) in which misinformation is used to provide a balance between the public's right to know and our responsibly to protects our agents on the ground
in highly sensitive operations.
I would estimate that about 95% of the people read 2 chapters-Attack and Heroism and Horror. The rest of the report just didn't interest persons
because those 2, in themselves, were enough and diving into the who, what, where and why seemed pointless as it sure as hell couldn't bring anybody
back or turn back the hands of time.
At the time of the reports evidence gathering and dissemination we (America) had over 400 agents in those areas-Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Saudi
peninsula and to dismiss our need to protect those agents, with accusations of cover up, lies and deliberate misrepresentations for political reasons,
is what groups persons that want to intelligently debate the attack, into the fodder who propose holograms of planes, phantom missiles and the
deliberate planting of dead bodies in a massive, preposterous, all encompassing master plan of Government complacently to kill thousands of Americans
for some quasi profit scheme.
Ali Soufan is a brave man. A true patriot and I regret, as I'm sure he does now as well, the political posturing of his narrative that was forced
upon him by his British publishers. The same tacit used on British writers Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan as their narrative ,The Eleventh Day, was,
again a politically slanted, ridiculous swipe at the person of George Bush with the events of 9/11 as a sideline.
They, of course, had little choice. Either the book is done our way-or there will be no book at all.
Dangling huge amounts of money in front of writers and researchers in exchange for their professional soul is as old as Herodotus and can be difficult
to resist-believe me I know all to well-however the result is always the same. Selling out is selling out anyway you cut it and those still around to
debate these issues can do so without being labeled one way or the other.
If you want to debate any, or all, parts of this report in a civilized manner that is fine. There are parts of it-regrettably- that are very deceptive
and simply were not meant for the average person to dissimulate with impunity.
