What happened when the families of the victims of 9/11 submitted their concerns and queries regarding the matter to the ones in charge? Unanswered Questions by Ray McGinnis takes an investigative look into the 9/11 Commission’s findings as the victims’ families struggle to keep track of the inquiries.

After the events of eleventh September 2001, a committee called the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Independent Commission pushed for an authentic retelling of what had passed without any presumptions or biases regarding the ultimate discovery. However, the government took 14 months to decide to build the 9/11 Commission, with the senior staff outlining beforehand what information and conclusion the report would hold. The families of the 9/11 victims offered over a thousand questions to the inquiry to be investigated and looked into. Still, only a meager 9% of matters were addressed, with 70% of the queries ignored and the remaining only glanced at before being disregarded. Compiled through accounts of families taken from press releases of the inquiry, this book is a collection of the struggles faced by hundreds of people to figure out the real reason why and how their loved ones died that terrible day.

Unanswered Questions: What the September Eleventh Families Asked and the 9/11 Commission Ignored by Ray McGinnis is a tell-all book about the investigative efforts of the 9/11 Commission and how they failed to bring peace to the families of those affected in the tragedy. The book also contains unanswered questions from mainstream sources excluded from the Commission’s report and dubious findings that have raised more questions than answers. It is a riveting and harrowing read as it imparts knowledge in an easy-to-understand manner and easily unravels the seemingly intricate web of information regarding 9/11. An interesting read for people who like learning about how politics affects our social life, Unanswered Questions is a book every adult should read to better understand the loss and hurt faced by 9/11 victims’ families. Extensively researched and professionally executed.
