Skip to comments.9/11 panel to single out FBI
Posted on 10/20/2005 9:47:58 AM PDT by Calpernia
The members of the Sept. 11 commission will sharply criticize the Bush administration and Congress this week in a privately financed report expected to single out the FBI as having failed to act on many of the panel's recommendations to protect the nation from terrorist attack, members of the bipartisan panel and its staff said.
They said the report, scheduled for release on Thursday by a private educational group created by the 10 former commissioners, will also criticize the White House for not doing enough to defend civil liberties and privacy rights as it expanded the government's surveillance powers after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. A civil liberties oversight board created by the White House earlier this year is toothless and underfinanced, some of the commissioners said.
Congress would be criticized, Roemer said, for having failed to follow through on the panel's major recommendations for an overhaul of congressional oversight of intelligence and terrorism issues. In its final report last year, the commission described congressional oversight as "dysfunctional."
The report is being prepared by the 9/11 Public Discourse Project, a lobby group that reflects an unusual effort by members of a federal blue-ribbon commission to press recommendations.

Soros? Moore? Babblin' Babs?.....
Dems are mad at Freeh for trashing Clintoon.
Wonder who is funding this?
Won't this fraudulent "committee" ever disappear?
Sadly, I fear it won't.
The treasonist 10 again eh?
Especially the Gore-lick one!
The 911 commission was inept to begin with and now have added corrupt to their stellar reputation.
The 9-11 Public Discourse Project wishes to thank the following funders:
The America Prepared Campaign, Inc.
The Carnegie Corporation of New York
Drexel Family Foundation
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
John S. and Lames L. Knight Foundation
Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Smith Richardson Foundation, Inc.
Sounds like the NPR Thank You list.......
Every gosh darned time you turn around.
Former 9/11 Commission...now referred to as "ten unemployed worthless hacks looking for work commission".
I couldn't help but notice that Timothy Roemer's quotes almost sounded like some of the speech Gorbachev made at the London Summit.
And Gorbachev does have a nice size 'nonpartisan' Foundation fund.
I foresee terrible trouble for these 10.

Adding this link. Related? I've no idea. Just want to keep all these odd events hyperlinked for reference.

Arthur Zankel, the financier who gave $10 million for the Carnegie Hall recital space that bears his name, plunged to his death from his ninth floor apartment in an apparent suicide, police said Friday. He was 73.
Add Gorbachev too.
Soros and or Gorbachev.
I thought the same thing upon reading the headline and initial paragraph...
Can we single out the 9/11 Commission for ignoring the anthrax attacks?
