31. The Guardians' got a new story up
Sept. 11 Investigations Still Going On


Thursday August 3, 2006 9:01 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) - Five years after the Sept. 11 attacks, investigators are still looking into the government's response to the hijackings, specifically to determine why aviation and military officials inaccurately reported their performance on that day.

The Defense Department inspector general will soon release a report into whether the military's testimony to the Sept. 11 commission was "knowingly false," Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Brian Maka said Thursday.

The counterpart office at the Transportation Department has completed and is writing a report on whether Federal Aviation Administration officials misspoke in their testimony, said David Barnes, the inspector general's spokesman.

Sept. 11 panel members have said that timelines on the tapes did not match accounts given in testimony by government officials and have asked for the two investigations.

Maybe this is why there is so much spin coming out about the Norad tapes? If this report from the DOD finds that officials are lying, then the governments version of events will go right out the window.
