Misstatements Were Not Willful Attempts to Deceive:

Military officials did not knowingly mislead the 9/11 Commission, according to the DOD Inspector General, reports the New York Times. “We haven’t found any information to indicate the testimony was knowingly false,” William Goehring, Pentagon IG spokesman, told the Times. However, he said the IG is still working on a separate report on the matter. An earlier report obtained by the Times under the Freedom of Information Act, attributed the inaccurate statements given to Congress and the 9/11 commission to poor record keeping, much of which was handwritten logs. As we reported Monday, the 9/11 panel’s own report cleared up much of the misinformation two years ago.
