The project, the product of two and half years of reporting and research, produced a 380,000-word database that juxtaposes what President Bush and seven top officials were saying for public consumption against what was known, or should have been known, on a day-to-day basis. This fully searchable database includes the public statements, drawn from both primary sources (such as official transcripts) and secondary sources (such as major news organizations) over the two years beginning on September 11, 2001. It also interlaces relevant information from government reports, books, articles, speeches and interviews. An interactive timeline shows the examination of the records. All 935 records highlighted false statements and hundreds of secondary accounts that illuminate the discrepancies between what was being said against what was known privately, for a two-year time span.

Drawing on military documents and other sources, this left-of-center publication reveals U.S. plans for to put weapons in space. "Some $6 billion a year -- plus funds in the 'black' or secret -- have been going into U.S. space military activities." Space-based weapons would violate the provisions of the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, Grossman writes. Among the initiatives for space-based warfare mentioned in the military documents: development of two space-based lasers, one of which is already being developed; mining the surface of the moon for precious materials; building lunar foxholes where U.S. spacecraft could hide to intercept shipments of materials from the moon to other countries. Today, with space laser technology not yet ready for deployment, "U.S. military plans for space will likely involve the use of nuclear power as an energy source for space-based weapons."
