"My view of that was that whether it was willful or just the fog of stupid bureaucracy, I don't know," Lehman said. "But in the order of magnitude of things, going after bureaucrats because they misled the commission didn't seem to make sense to me."
I read the article and certainly wasn't impressed by the "deceptions" referred to. Some were non sequitors.
Getting more and more desperate on the left. Think they have disasterous polling data about the '06 elections?
They are never going away..... Liberals win the House of Representative they already have their "commission" established for their plotted and planned impeachment.
Is it too late to give medals to the patriots who lied to the 9/Forever commission?
Meanwhile, the elephant in the living room, Jamie Gorelick, has still never taken a seat at the commission's witness table.
Every time you figure these scumbags are gone and forgotten another story like this one pops up.
This is what happens when the President of the United States bows to media pressure and special interest groups like the so-called "Jersey Girls", appoints a RINO has-been like Kean to chair a special "commission", which is peppered with questionable members like Gorelick who were in fact instrumental in creating the conditions within the federal government which led to a major breakdown in communications, creating confusion, doubt and delay which was fully manifested on 9/11.
Thanks Bill Clinton, thanks Jamie Gorelick, thanks RINOs one and all, thanks for your dedicated attempts to undermine our national leadership during a time of war.
The 9/11 Commission was, is and shall be a disgraceful footnote when the 9/11 attacks are addressed by future historians and the members of that commission will be written off as nothing but useful idiots to al Qaeda.
The commission quickly revealed itself as nothing more than a vehicle to re-write history so as not to besmirch the Hippie Administration. As it was when they were in their 20s, the Clinton Kids were determined that they not take responsibility for the dire results of their own arrrogance and stupidity.
This commission doesn't have the moral authority to call anything or anyone a lie after it said that "Saddam didn't have an operational relationship with Al Qaeda".
If a housewife sitting at her computer can prove the lie to that statement, they're worthless.
Every time I think about the Commission the French word "guignol" (Punch and Judy show) comes to mind. Certainly Kean, Gorton and Lehman played their dumbshow part perfectly, just as Gorelick played hers.
Commissioner Jamie Gorelick.
Should have been these three words:
Witness Jamie Gorelick.
"In an article scheduled to be on newsstands today, Vanity Fair magazine reports aspects of the commission debate -- "
Vanity Fair???? The Washington Post is referencing Vanity Fair on defense and military competency?
If the official reports as to what the Air Defense was doing or not doing were false - this is *more* than " loose ends."
