9/11 Family Steering Committee members Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie van Auken were concerned about 9/11 Commission Staff Director Phillip Zelikow’s close ties to National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. ” ‘If he’s looking at the NSC [National Security Council], that means he’s investigating himself,’ said Lorie van Auken at the time [in a United Press International article on October 4, 2003]. ‘What an incredible conflict,’ said Mindy Kleinberg. ‘The evidence was pointing to a series of key memos in the summer of 2001 including the August 6th [2001] PDB [President’s Daily Briefing] and Condi was at the heart of that. How could we expect Zelikow to fairly investigate his own friend and colleague?’ ”
