The USAF originally gave an incorrect timeline of events to the commission, but when the commission gave it its own timeline, the USAF agreed with it; the commission did not pursue the question, where the original wrong timeline came from. Do these idiots realize that when they do the CYA routine, they pour water on the mills of conspiracy theorists?

Kean & Hamilton take you behind the scenes of the 9/11 Commission. They don't dish the dirt, & bureaucratic minutia is heavy, but it is an interesting account.
