Summary This series seeks to hold government accountable and expose undue government secrecy when it occurs. 28 Pages tells the little known story of the redacted parts of the Congressional investigation into 9/11, fourteen years after the fact. Viral Threat is our original investigation into a medical mystery the CDC doesn’t want to talk about. We discovered a strong link between an emerging polio-like virus and a new disease that’s paralyzed children nationwide. In Afghan Oasis, we investigate the maddening taxpayer waste surrounding “64k”: a U.S. military building the military didn’t ask for, said it wouldn’t use and never occupied. $36 million was spent over the objections of generals on the ground. Running on “E” is our original look at how close the Obama administration got to its goal of putting one million electric vehicles on the road by 2015. https://youtu.be/Vf6ZKLe9xoo
