Why They Attacked Us
Mr. James Morris rose and asked Commissioner Hamilton why wasn't the issue of U.S. support for Israel being addressed? Hamilton balked and sidestepped the question. (See video below)
9/11 Commissioner Hamilton asked the FBI what was the motivation of the 9/11 hijackers? An FBI agent rose and said, "I believe they feel a sense of outrage against the United States. They identify with the Palestinian problem, they identify with people who oppose repressive regimes, and I believe they tend to focus their anger on the United States." This was NOT included in the 9/11 Commission Hearings report!
The Gorilla in the Room is US Support for Israel.

Lee Hamilton insults the American people at a "9/11 Public Discourse Project" Q&A. At the August 2, 2005 "public event," Hamilton quickly tries to silence someone who asks why US support for Israel isn't being addressed since it is what drove the plotter of 9/11 to attack us. (Questioner=James Morris)
Questioner: Mr. Hamilton? I had a quick question for you sir.
I had spoken with you on C-SPAN about a month ago ...
Hamilton (interrupting the questioner): I think we'd uh ...
Questioner: ... yeah, we talked about Israeli policy ...
Hamilton (interrupting the questioner): I... ... think we would like to address sir .. we would like to address
Questioner: Yeah, why aren't we addressing the gorilla in the room? The gorilla in the room is US support for Israel. You had made a mistake earlier. You had said that the Israeli-Palestinian dispute wasn't addressed in the 9/11 Commission Report. I beg to differ with that, on page 147, it is stated that ...
Questioner: ... the plotter of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, was driven to attack us -not because of "radical ideologies" as ...
Hamilton (interrupting the questioner): OK, uh ...
Questioner: ... Prime Minister Blair -
(Grumbling from someone in the crowd)
Questioner: ... Because of US support for Israel.* Why aren't we addressing that sir?
Hamilton: Alright sir.
Questioner: You got Mr. Bamford's book from me, James Bamford's A Pretext for War book
Hamilton (interrupting the questioner): OK ...
Questioner: ... which conveys why we were attacked and then you have Mr. Ross
up here who is basically affiliated with the Israeli lobby AIPAC ...
Hamilton: Alright sir ...
Questioner: You ...
(Man from back of the room walks over and stops the questioner)
Hamilton: Alright, this is a conversation you and I ought to have.
Let's not take up the time of our resource people. May we go to the next question please? Thank you very much.
See the video here: What motivated the 9/11 hijackers to attack the US?
* He is correct, on page 147 of the 9/11 Commission Report, it says "By his own account, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's animus toward the United States stemmed not from his experiences there as a student, but rather from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel."
