What John Farmer Does Say and What He Doesn’t

Filed under: Complete 911 Timeline — kevinfenton @ 4:00 pm

I recently read John Farmer’s Ground Truth and need to write about five posts digesting it. The first point that needs to be made is about what it says and what is does not say.

The book’s blurb at Amazon states that “the official version of events [of 9/11] was almost entirely, and inexplicably, untrue,” and the dust jacket echoes similar sentiments. Another blurb adds, “What emerges with painful, stunning clarity is that ‘at some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened.’ The implications of this are profound.” When you read this, the logical assumption is that “official version” = “9/11 Commission version,” so he’s telling us the commission’s version’s of events is wrong, right?

9/11 Commission Passed on NEADS Tapes Month before Issuing Subpoena for Them

Documents newly found at the National Archives show that in the weeks before the 9/11 Commission issued a subpoena for tapes of events at the Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) on the day of the attacks, it told the military not to send some or all of them to the commission. The documents are internal commission e-mails and a memo, as well as communications between the commission and the military. They were found at the National Archives by History Commons contributor Erik Larson (a.k.a. paxvector) and posted to the 9/11 Document Archive at Scribd.
