Bush Administration Told Members of Congress NOT to Investigate 9/11

Senate Majority Leader (D) Tom Daschle held a news conference on May 16t, 2002 . This was eight months after the 911 events took place and no investigation had been formed.

Daschle stated several times in this interview with many press people, that both President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney asked him to not investigate the 911 events. He specifically named Cheney as having asked him on many occasions to not have a 911 investigation.

Considering that eventually a 911 commission was formed, and both Bush and Cheney were asked to testify. They did, but conditionally. They agreed to testify if they were both interviewed in the same room together. Why? Simple, any police investigator will tell you that if you have more than one accomplices, you need to interrogate them separately because you are more likely to get different versions of what happened and who did what. Cheney and Bush knew that by being interviewed together, they would not trip and make contradicting statements.

In order to connect some dots, you also have to keep in mind that all investigation results of the 911 events were classified and most were not shared with the public.

After the NY towers came down, many rescue and emergency services were not allowed to enter areas deemed by ATF, CIA and FBI as too classified even for police and fire crews to see. Why? Because there was evidence of bombs as well as thermonuclear devices on the site.

At the Pentagon, all video captures from surrounding closed circuit TV’s were confiscated by the FBI and only a brief video was released to the press. The other videos are still considered “classified” or are missing.

So, Cheney and Bush don’t want an investigation of 911, they refuse to be interviewed by the commission separately and much of the evidence of the three airline crashes is still “classified” and unavailable to the public years later, and after Bin Laden has been killed.
