Obama appointed Phillip Zelikow, the Director of the absurdly flawed and discredited 9/11 Commission, to his Intelligence Advisory Board. Zelikow was also earlier involved in a terrorism study group in 1997/1998 which predicted the consequences of "an act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people and/or disrupted the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands, or even millions, [and] would be a watershed event in America’s history." Zelikov also drafted for the Bush administration the new national security strategy of 'preemptive attack."
President Obama also appointed Mona Sutphen, a close contact and colleague of Clinton's National Security Advisor Sandy R. Berger. Sutphen was managing director of Stonebridge International, "a global business strategy firm" formed by Mr. Berger. Mr. Berger was also convicted of the removal of crucial 9/11 documents from the National Archives at the time the 9/11 Comission was reviewing documents associated with 9/11.
On this linked webpage you can read one comment theorizing "zelikow and Sunstein's 'Obama propaganda ministry'[OPM] will be dealing with recent ripples in pool out of Florida, which, if opened by 'new investigation' [sen.Graham], would HAVE to deal with continued suppression of explosive information..."
Could it be that these insider appointments are a defensive move by the Obama administration to deal with, scuttle, or diffuse Senator Graham's recent call for a new 9/11 Investigation? At the very least they represent the continued correlation between the Obama administration and the insiders in previous administrations in the area of foreign policy.
In addition: It is interesting to watch the following Council on Foreign Relations video where Zelikow recently spoke about 9/11 and the continuing War on Terror. Zelikow speaks assuredly and seemingly smartly about 9/11, yet to anyone who has looked at the facts surrounding 9/11 it seems as if the CFR and Zelikow are living in their own world of manipulated facts. Just to use one example: At 12:00 minutes in Zelikow talks of how it is not known if there was a support network for the terrorists inside the U.S. However we know that an FBI informant was helping the terrorists as well as influential Saudis. Zelikow also wishes to tie (14:00) Iran to actions aiding the terrorists in their travels by lax control over their visas and border controls. However we know that the U.S. itself could be accused of this, in their 'negligence' at the consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where the cross border travels of Al-Qaeda and the hijackers themselves were apparently purposely aided.
