Inexcusable

The September 11 commission is a joke. It is unfortunate, but it is true. The Democrats on the commission have turned it into a partisan hack squad. From the drama queen antics of Richard Clarke, to the refusal of one of the commissioners to testify after it was discovered she in fact bore almost sole responsibility for the creation of the much talked about "wall" between federal agencies, to the commissioners elbowing their way in front of cameras every weekend to publicly state foredrawn conclusions, or in the case of last weekend, to actually mock President Bush for appearing with Dick Cheney. It is odd they mocked the President for appearing with Cheney, but didn't mock President Clinton even though he appeared with his Defense Secretary, Sandy Berger, and his attorney Laurence Lindsey. If all of that is not enough to convince you that the commission is a joke and that the commissioners aren't taking their work seriously, then maybe this story will drive the point home.
