BTL:Five Unanswered Questions About 9/11 Critical to Prevent Future Attacks

Five Unanswered Questions About 9/11 Critical to Prevent Future Attacks

Interview with James Ridgeway, Village Voice Washington correspondent, conducted by Scott Harris

On the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks that targeted the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and brought down an airliner in Pennsylvania, the nation was grappling with the destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina and the flawed government response to that disaster. Many Americans had believed that the president and Congress used the intervening four years since 9/11 to strengthen the government's emergency response system to better react in the event of new terrorist attacks or natural disasters. That confidence has now been severely shaken.

As Americans remembered the thousands killed on Sept. 11, 2001, many wonder if the investigations undertaken by Congress and the independent 9/11 Commission exposed the government's intelligence failures so that corrective action could be implemented to thwart future terrorist plots.

Village Voice Washington correspondent James Ridgeway doesn't think so. His new book, "The 5 Unanswered Questions About 9/11," examines the events leading up to the attacks and the glaring holes he found in the official Sept. 11 Commission report. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with James Ridgeway about the shortcomings of the investigation and why no one in government has been held accountable.

Village Voice Washington correspondent James Ridgeway's book, "The 5 Unanswered Questions About 9/11, " will be published by Seven Stories Press in October. Read his columns online at www.villagevoice.com
