Email to Justice Department
"I am unfamiliar with the telephone call that Attorney General Mukasey cited in his appearance in San Francisco on March 27. The 9/11 Commission did not receive any information pertaining to its occurrence."
In a statement to me last week, Philip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission's Executive Director, said much the same thing, as did House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers in a letter to the Attorney General.
Was the alleged call described by the Attorney General disclosed to the 9/11 Commission? Does the Justice Department have any comment as to why the 9/11 Commission is unaware of the event which the Attorney General claims prevented the Bush administration from preventing the 9/11 attacks?
