Testimony to the 9/11 Commission

Thomas H. Kean, chairman of the commission said "We to this day don't know why NORAD [the North American Aerospace Command] told us what they told us. It was just so far from the truth. . . . It's one of those loose ends that never got tied."[1] John Farmer, Jr., senior counsel to the Commission was more candid, declaring explicitly that "At some level of the government, at some point in time... there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened...The (NORAD) tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public."[2]

The NORAD Tapes

Full article: The NORAD Tapes

The NORAD Tapes are a set of over 100 recordings of air traffic controllers, military aviation officers, airline and fighter jet pilots, as well as two of the hijackers, made over the course of two hours on the morning of 9/11. Some were played to the 9/11 Commission, but none were released to the public until 2011 [Citation Needed]. Some of the NORAD Tapes remain classified.[3]
