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.

Boy, I'm sure glad Helen Thomas wasn't on the commission then!..........
The farsical 911 Commission was created to only blame and criticize the Bush Administration. The demoncRAT jerks found a problem when the real blame should be on the clintoonian administration. Last I read these subhuman creatures blamed the New York Fire Dept.
And of course the 9/11 Commission's attack on the FBI has absolutely nothing to do with the recently published book by the former FBI director Louis Freeh, and his attacks on the Clinton administration in that book. (sarcasm)
And of course our RINOS on the commission had no ojections to signing on to this agenda.
Able Danger's next...
PRIVATELY FINACED HIT PIECE???? WHO THE HELL PAID??? Who are the 10 commission members????? This is really disgusting!
Is that PIG Jamie Gorelick paying for this??
(CK): Yes. The Commission believes we are safer, as do I. A lot of good steps have been taken by the government. At the same time, the Commission believes a lot more steps need to be taken, and there are serious deficiencies; hence our recommendations.
The devil made me do it!
Every gosh darned time you turn around.,,(your post)
And my opinion:
Will it mess up your google if I confess that "gosh & darned" weren't the words that originally came to mind? ;-)
