(NaturalNews) Just about every American who was alive on Sept. 11, 2001 remembers where they were and what they were doing on that fateful day when our nation fell under attack. In the decade since, we have managed to punish most of those who were directly responsible for the worst terrorist attack in our history, on our own soil.

Millions of people have asked questions about how the attacks could have happened and what took place shortly after the workday began that Tuesday morning. But perhaps some of the most important questions have yet to be answered, and as we prepare to honor nearly 3,000 souls who were killed mercilessly in those attacks, it's time to take another look at some of the most important of them.

For starters, it's worthy of notation that the U.S. government's account of what happened on 9/11 wasn't convincing enough to elicit support from the chairman, vice chairman and senior legal counsel of the 9/11 commission.

Officially, Chairman Thomas H. Kean, and Vice Chairman Lee H. Hamilton thanked President George W. Bush and Congress, along with the American people, "for their support throughout the commission's work."

In a statement released some 21 months after the commission was formed to examine what happened on 9/11, Kean and Hamilton, in a statement, said they believed they accomplished their mandate, which was to "make a full and complete accounting of the circumstances surrounding the attacks, and the extent of the United States' preparedness for, and immediate response to, the attacks," and then make "recommendations for corrective measures that can be taken to prevent acts of terrorism."

Despite this rosy "official" assessment of the commission's work, both Kean and Hamilton were critical of the way there permitted to do their jobs, complaining during the investigation that the White House wasn't forthcoming with official documents and other evidence, and saying after the commission closed Aug. 21, 2004 that it was really just "set up to fail."

Their assessment was mirrored by senior counsel John Farmer, Jr., who authored, The Ground Truth, a book about the 9/11 attacks, wrote that the commission "discovered that what had occurred that morning, what government and military officials had told Congress, the media, and the public was almost entirely untrue." Continuing, he wrote, "At some level of the government, at some point in time there was a decision not to tell the truth about what happened."

He, along with Kean and Hamilton, said that while terrorists were ramming jetliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and heroic passengers did not have a clue what was going on.

Moreover, Farmer says, the official version of events shines praise on the Defense Department, which is responsible for defending the nation's airspace, and the Federal Aviation Administration, the agency in charge of actually controlling America's airspace.

How can that be, given the nature of their responsibilities in protecting our homeland?

This is Part I of a two-part series examining 9/11 on the 10-year anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in American history.
