The 9/11 Commission and its final report are still held up as the final word on the events of September 11, 2001. But there’s just one problem: Six out of the 10 commissioners have admitted that the commission was misled, stymied, hampered by conflicts of interest, and, ultimately, forced to participate in a politically motivated cover-up. This is the story of the doubtful 9/11 commissioners.

Of all the 9/11 whistleblowers, perhaps the most noteworthy are the 9/11 Commissioners themselves.

The 9/11 Commission (formally “The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States”) was set up by President George W. Bush, who dragged his heels a full 441 days before finally establishing a body to investigate the events of September 11, 2001, and “to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding” them. But that remarkable gap between the events and the empaneling of the Commission was not due to mere laziness; Bush actively resisted any investigation for as long as he could, taking the extraordinary and unprecedented step of personally asking Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle to limit Congress’ investigation into those events.

It was only when the political pressure to form a commission of inquiry became too great for Bush to resist that he authorized the commission and nominated a chairman: Henry Kissinger.

PRESIDENT BUSH: Today I’m pleased to announce my choice for commission chairman: Dr. Henry Kissinger.

REPORTER: Dr. Kissinger, do you have any concerns about once the commission begins it work and fingers point to valuable allies—say, Saudi Arabia for example—what policy implications could this have for the United States, particularly at this delicate time?

HENRY KISSINGER: I have been given every assurance by the President that we should go where the facts lead us.

SOURCE: Henry Kissinger and the 9/11 Commission

Kissinger’s reputation as a cover-up artist and tool of the political establishment was such that even The New York Times speculated that Bush’s nomination of him showed that the president wanted to contain the investigation into 9/11, not enable it. 9/11 victims’ family members, similarly concerned that Kissinger was being appointed to run a cover-up commission, challenged him to his face to release the client list of his political consulting business.

NARRATOR: Several family members approached Kissinger and requested a meeting at his office in New York. Prior to the meeting, Kristen Breitweiser conducted a thorough investigation of Kissinger’s potential conflicts of interest.

PATTY CASAZZA: Probably much to the chagrin of some of the people in the room, Lorie (Van Auken) asked some very pointed questions. Would you have any Saudi-American clients that you would like to tell us about?And he was very uncomfortable, kind of twisting and turning on the couch. And then she asked whether he had any clients by the name of Bin-Laden.” And he just about fell off his couch.

NEWS REPORTER: Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger stepped down from the position Friday.

MINDY KLEINBERG: We thought the meeting went well.

The next morning, Kissinger resigned his post as head of the 9/11 Commission and former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean and former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton were appointed chairman and vice-chairman, respectively, to take his place.

Remarkably, the suggestions of political cover-up did not end there, nor were they confined to a marginalized “lunatic fringe” of “conspiracy theorists” derided by the establishment media. The remarkable and almost completely unreported fact is that six out of the 10 commissioners—Kean and Hamilton, as well as Bob Kerrey, Tim Roemer, John Lehman and Max Cleland—have all expressed concern that the Commission was misled, stymied, hampered by conflicts of interest, and, ultimately, forced to participate in a politically motivated cover-up.

In their book, Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission, and in press conferences and interviews at the time the report was released, Kean and Hamilton famously remarked that the commission had been “set up to fail.”

EVAN SOLOMON: Even Lee Hamilton, the co-chair of the 9/11 Commission itself, admits to us that the process he headed up was seriously flawed.

LEE HAMILTON: So there are all kinds of reasons we thought we were set up to fail. We got started late. We had a very short time frame; indeed we had to get it extended. We did not have enough money. They were afraid we were going to hang somebody.

THOMAS KEAN: But it was very difficult. And Lee and I write in our book that we think the commission in many ways was set up to fail.

As it turns out, the majority of the commissioners felt that the commission had been lied to, deliberately obstructed, undermined by the White House, or set up with staff that had conflicts of interest in the investigation.

One of these concerned commissioners, Max Cleland, resigned because the commission had been “deliberately compromised by the President of the United States.”

Commissioner John Lehman, meanwhile, admitted on NBC Nightly News that the Commission had to go through Karl Rove and other senior White House members to access key documents in their investigation and that “[w]e purposely put together a staff that had—in a way—conflicts of interest,” stressing, lest there be any doubt, that “[a]ll of the staff had, to a certain extent, some conflict of interest.”

Commission members even considered bringing criminal charges against Pentagon officials who had deliberately lied to them about the military’s complete lack of response on that day.

But perhaps the most cryptic of all the dissenting commissioners was Bob Kerrey. In 2009 he remarked that 9/11 was a “30-year old conspiracy,” but no mainstream reporter has ever followed up with him to clarify this statement.

JEREMY ROTHE-KUSHEL: Do you support a criminal investigation into 9/11? Because I know yours was an exposition. It was not a criminal investigation.

BOB KERREY: I don’t think so, but I don’t know. I mean, I do support a permanent commission to examine not just that but lots of other things in this area.

ROTHE-KUSHEL: But if it’s a permanent cover-up then it’s—I mean, if it is an act of war and it’s hiding things—which everyone on your Commission knew, that the Pentagon was changing their stories, lying to you—then it’s a cover-up of an act of war, and under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution it’s treason. So unless we get to the very bottom of it then we’re still talking a treasonous exposition.

KERREY: This is a longer conversation, I’m not sure we’ll ever get to the bottom of it.

ROTHE-KUSHEL: We have to or we can’t save our country, sir.

KERREY: I don’t think—well, if that’s the condition upon which we’re going to be saving our country—because the problem is, it’s a 30-year-old conspiracy.

ROTHE-KUSHEL: No, I’m talking about 9/11.

KERREY: That’s what I’m talking about.

ROTHE-KUSHEL: Oh, you are. You mean . . .

KERREY: Anyway, I gotta run.

It is utterly remarkable that the 9/11 Commission and its final report are still held up as the final word on the events of September 11, 2001, when a majority of its own Commissioners admit that the commission was a cover-up and did not get to the bottom of the story. Even more remarkable is that this fact has never even been mentioned, let alone examined, in any mainstream media report. And, despite the fact that the majority of Americans believe the government is concealing what it knows about the events of September 11th from the public, to this day anyone who raises questions about the Commission or its findings is treated as a conspiratorial loony by those same media personalities who refuse to report on the 9/11 Commission’s own whistleblowers.

It should be apparent by this point that the old argument that “someone would have talked” is not just fallacious, but factually incorrect. There have, in fact, been numerous whistleblowers with documentable evidence of the frauds and fictions that have been constructed around the official 9/11 narrative. Their disclosures put the “but someone would have talked” doubters in an uncomfortable predicament: Either they are lazy—boldly pronouncing on issues they have not themselves bothered to investigate—or they are lying.

What is especially galling when the so-called “skeptics” use the “someone would have talked” fallacy is that the whistleblowers have in fact done everything possible to publicize their stories—holding press conferences, filing formal appeals, joining whistleblower organizations, and making themselves available for interviews. For their heroic efforts, these brave men and women have been fired from their jobs, shunned by former colleagues, smeared by the mainstream media, and ignored by the public.

“Someone would have talked.” Indeed, numerous “someones” have talked. Some of them have even screamed. But when their cries are ignored, the stories of the 9/11 whistleblowers sound like the proverbial trees falling in the forest with no one around to hear them. Unless and until we give these valiant men and women a voice, then we will never hope to learn the truth about 9/11.


  1. Hey fellow Corbett Reporteers,

    Please allow me to again personally thank all of The Corbett Report subscribers who genuinely make such things as the 9/11 Whistleblowers series possible.

    You guys are the truly the best. James’ work simply would not exist without all of your continued support. Thank you for watching & sharing this important information. I am humbled to play my small part in getting this out to the wider audience & am so grateful for the opportunity to do so.

    In the words of James Evan Pilato: 9/11 Truth Now & Forever.

    • I second that, Mr. Broc West!

    • Incredible job on this series Broc.
      You and James are a badass team.

  2. Excellent series James and Broc.

    Thank you

  3. Oh, and Broc, you’re not just playing a small part.
    You guys are a team.

    • Ditto. Truly an exceptional team.

  4. Corbett and team, thank you for all the hard work on this video series.

  5. This was an amazing series. Thank you, thank you!

    Am not sure who the other person is pictured with Noam Chompsky—can someone help?

    • Miriam says:
      “This was an amazing series. Thank you, thank you!”
      Ditto here.
      I loved the series.
      If I had to make a top pick from the series, my personal favorite was “Cate Jenkins”, a well researched piece with the story told in a riveting and understandable way. True journalistic skill.

      Miriam says:
      “Am not sure who the other person is pictured with Noam Chompsky—can someone help?” (8:25 minute mark)
      Just a second…Let me get my facial recognition software. 😉
      I think you are referring to Michael Shermer.

      Some Corbett pieces regarding Michael Shermer.

    • Ukdavec,
      Interesting recent story. Thanks.
      The Bandar tune rings with bits of my old memory neurons.

      EXCERPT from the notes (pdf) of the “Long hidden 9/11 Commission interview with Saudi Prince Bandar released”:
      – October 7, 2003 interview with Prince Bandar –
      …The Ambassador felt that the attack was designed deliberately to destroy relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. The fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi was no mistake or coincidence….

      Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal
      Your article mentions Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal and after a search, I found this…

      NEWS FEED for September 11, 2019, but was originally published on June, 23, 2003.
      Special Report: The King of Torts vs. al-Qaida Inc. by Tony Bartelme of “The Post and Courier”
      This is a very long article. There are some interesting things in it. Keep in mind that it is dated June 23, 2003.
      Ron Motley of Motley Rice LLC lawfirm, is interviewed. “Filed last August in federal court in Washington, D.C., the Sept. 11 lawsuit alleges that 213 entities financed or supported al-Qaida,” (which would make it August 2002).
      An interesting EXCERPT
      …Without being specific, Motley said he has witnesses “who have the goods on Prince Turki,” and that his involvement was as “thick as mama’s homemade tomato soup.” Revealing their identities could put the witnesses in danger, but the evidence eventually will be made public. He said he was looking forward to grilling the prince in a deposition.

      “When I’m finished with Prince Turki,” Motley said, “he’ll have a new name: Prince Cooked Goose.”…

  6. Q: since it takes a thief to catch a thief, then might it be similarly appropriate to send a genocidal lunatic to catch a genocidal lunatic?

    A: Not when the genocidal lunatic is sent by a minion of the genocidal lunatics who perpetrated the treasonous crime in order to ensure that the criminals remain unidentified.

  7. “Someone would have talked…”
    Yes whistleblowers have talked.
    Just not the right ones.

    I don’t mean to diminish these whistleblowers’ work and efforts in any way.
    I think they are all heroes and very brave individuals.

    What these whistleblowers have done is very important
    in getting to the truth about what happened on 9/11….

    But when people say “Someone would have talked…” they are thinking about something a little different.

    They are thinking about what I think as well.

    They are thinking about those who planned, prepared and carried out the 9/11 attacks or especially anyone who had personal knowledge of these people.

    To my knowledge all of these people have remained silent to this day.
    If any Corbeteer knows of any whistleblower with credible proof who has named anyone who planned, prepared or carried out 9/11 please let us know!

    Of course 9/11 conspiracy detractors are wrong when they say “Someone would have talked…”
    The perps have done a great job at keeping everyone silent, and continue to do so.

    However none of the people the 9/11 conspiracy detractors are referring to have talked yet.

    • Christopher Bollyn is an absolute powerhouse! He possesses a wealth of 9/11 information.
      I have tremendous respect for his perseverance and diligence in researching 9/11.
      I would encourage anyone who hasn’t already studied his 9/11 work to do so!

      Bollyn is a 9/11 researcher however, not a 9/11 whistleblower.
      He does not have first-hand knowledge of anyone who planned, prepared or executed 9/11. He’s missing the credible ‘proof’.

      All of Bollyn’s work and theories are based on circumstantial evidence.

      Here’s what Bollyn himself has to say about tracking down the 9/11 perpetrators:

      “Because you see, it’ll take um, some real investigation to find out who put the nano-thermite in the WTC, where the nano-thermite was made, um etc, you know, finding the fingerprints of the actual criminals involved in the crime, um, that’s harder to do, but the people who are involved in the coverup and the deception and taking the country to war, based on the lie, that’s all very clear.

      So what we really need is a huge investigation in this country in which all of the people who are involved in the 9/11 crime and coverup are arrested and charged and investigated thoroughly, Michael Chertoff, to find out who was calling the shots and connecting the network. And that requires, that will require something no less than a political revolution in this country. Because it would stand the entire power structure on its head.”

  8. I’d like to slip this tidbit in somewhere and I’m not sure where the best place would be so…

    Every time there’s an event, whether it’s a natural disaster like a
    hurricane or a volcano erupting dangerously close to cities or a building fire like the Grenfell Tower fire in London that has eerie parallels to 9/11
    I sit up immediately and take notice.

    I observe the reaction, or rather lack of reaction by the mainstream media.

    Take the most recent hurricane Dorian for example.
    As early as August 29 authorities were warning that it could develop to a Cat III or Cat IV before it made landfall days later in the U.S.

    A state of emergency was declared in Florida before anything even happened there!

    83 flights within the U.S. had already been cancelled wth more expected to occur when Dorian made landfall on Florida’s east coast.

    People were being warned of potential “life-threatening flash floods”.
    People started gathering emergency supplies in preparation of any disaster.

    Fair enough.

    But what happened the days leading up to 9/11 when a Cat III hurricane was making its way up perilously close to the east coast of the U.S.?

    Nothing! Absolutely nothing. Except for one or two small local news weather reports, the U.S. media shunned the story!

    After 9/11, each and every potentially threatening Cat I, II, III or greater hurricane has gotten full media attention.

    I’m blowing the whistle on the U.S. mainstream news media!

  9. Classic…

    KERRY: …Because the problem is, it’s a 30 year old conspiracy.

    ROTHE-KUSHEL: No, I’m talking about 9/11.

    KERREY: That’s what I’m talking about.

    Back in the day, the wild west of 9/11 truth, California Truthers were tearing it up.
    Get a load of this L.A. 9/11 Truth march!
    (Remember, back then, the “Peace Movement” wanted nothing to do with 9/11 Truth. i.e. The “Peace Movement” was anti-Bush, but after Obama the “Peace Movement” faded into the sunset.)

  10. Not enough people sharing these vids. Get crackin people.

  11. Excellent work guys!
    Thank you so much.

    BTW, Are the Dancing Israelis, of Israeli TV fame, whistleblowers too, if Keane and Hamilton are?

  12. excellent short series James & Broc, very thoughtful. Thanks!

    • The first three spicy Italian questions by Massimo Mazzucco should get anyone to wake up in the classroom.

      Back in the day, the Dallas Truth Group gave out a lot of DVDs of his film “September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor”.

    • Ha! I like his style!

      It’s been a couple years since I touched the Flt 93 scenario. For that angle alone, the lack of wreckage, bodies, what the people are expected to believe (vaporization?!) is so unbelievably absurd, it’s just too much. The entire official 9/11 narrative is nothing but a flimsy house of cards which rules the world; a violent, evil bizarro version of a fairy tale for grown-ups. The grotesquely obese emperor is strutting around naked and everyone is too damn scared to question it.

    • Damn it!
      I missed qualifying as an “expert” by one question.
      My self-esteem just took a major hit.

    • Thanks for the heads-up Octium!
      I took the quiz and outscored the quiz-master! 🙂

      Question #9 is poorly worded.
      The more than 100 did not testify to the NY Times!
      The NY Times published the testimony of the 100+.

      The correct answer is a) None!

  13. Dynamic, short speech which is sequitur to the 9/11 Commission Report & also the 9/11 Truth Movement’s messages…

    Sept 7, 2019 – Fire Commissioner Chris Gioia of Franklin Square in New York

    4:30 mark – “…The 9/11 Commission was FLAWED!….”
    5:45 mark – “…The failings of the official investigation have fueled too many HALF BAKED CONSPIRACY THEORIES….”

  14. Awesome job on this series, guys! Thank you.
