Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] 8 Years After 9/11/01

Every Tuesday we had an administrative meeting at the Milwaukee Public  
Theatre offices. As I got ready to catch a bus I had the TV news on  
and was watching the  first WTC tower burn. Seemed like an accident at  
first. Then the second tower. I called the office and told them to  
turn on television. I stayed and watched. Finally caught a bus in the  
afternoon. It was erie, no airplanes overhead. Not long after I wrote  
my 1st ten minute produced play, PROFESSIONAL COURTESY, which was my  
primary artistic response to the event. I later worked on a longer  
version which was had a well attended staged reading on 09/11/05. I  
continue to work on it.

Things have been pretty much downhill since. My own health, economics,  
the arts. I continue to wonder about all the unanswered questions. I  
guess I am far from alone. Today I cam across this:

Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission after  
calling it a =93national scandal=94, stated in a 2003 PBS interview, =93I=92m  
saying that=92s deliberate. I am saying that the delay in relating this  
information to the American public out of a hearing=85 series of  
hearings, that several members of Congress knew eight or ten months  
ago, including Bob Graham and others, that was deliberately slow  
walked=85 the 9/11 Commission was deliberately slow walked, because the  
Administration=92s policy was, and its priority was, we=92re gonna take  
Saddam Hussein out.=94 Cleland, speaking with Democracy Now, said, =93One  
of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11  
issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover  
it up=94. In 2006 the Washington Post reported that several members of  
the 9/11 Commission suspected deception on part of the Pentagon. As  
=93Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded  
that the Pentagon=92s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001  
terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead  
the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of  
events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.=94 9/11  
Commissioner Bob Kerry also has unanswered questions. As reported by  
Salon, he believes that there are legitimate reasons to believe an  
alternative version to the official story. =93There are ample reasons to  
suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our  
version,=94 Kerrey said. The commission had limited time and limited  
resources to pursue its investigation, and its access to key documents  
and witnesses was fettered by the administration.
Commissioner Tim Roemer, speaking to CNN, stated that Commission  
members were considering a criminal probe of false statements. As  
quoted, =93We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we  
were getting,=94 Roemer told CNN. =93We were not sure of the intent,  
whether it was to deceive the commission or merely part of the  
fumbling bureaucracy.=94
