I often see claims like this repeated, "six out of the Ten 9/11 Comission members have gone on record since to admit there was a U.S. government cover-up." Any truth to it? This last time I saw it was on this Facebook post by Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura on truTV. The page has 209,000 followers as of September 11, 2012.

9/11 truther propaganda.

I believe this claim is rooted in this webpage.

  • What exactly are these claims saying is being 'covered up'? – DJClayworth Sep 11 '12 at 20:54
  • Does it matter? Do 6 of the 10 say anything was covered up? – Evan Carroll Sep 11 '12 at 20:55

    There is no claim that the member withdrew their findings. It could be that there is a coverup of something that did not impact their findings or that was disclosed in their findings. – Chad Sep 12 '12 at 16:03

No.

There was one commission member, Max Cleland, who "blasted" the White House and claimed a cover up. He withdrew as a commission member and was replaced by Bob Kerrey.

Aside from Max, I can find no evidence of any of the other members "going on record" to admit a government cover-up.

The full 9/11 report is available online (PDF) and the commission members are Thomas H. Kean, Lee H. Hamilton, Richard Ben-Veniste, Bob Kerrey, Fred F. Fielding, John F. Lehman, Jamie S. Gorelick, Timothy J. Roemer, Slade Gorton and James R.Thompson.

  • I updated the question with the source I believe is used to substantiate this claim. – Evan Carroll Sep 12 '12 at 5:37
