September 11th Report Will Not Say Attacks Preventable: Media and Democrats Disappointed

The highly partisan and, thanks in part to Sandy Berger, the at least partially incomplete analysis of the September 11th commission is due to be released to the public on Thursday. The report will not state that the attacks were preventable. This will be a big disappointment to John Kerry who, according to his aides, is hoping to use the report to show that President Bush was inattentive to terror before September 11th. To put it bluntly, Kerry wanted, and will still try, to blame the Bush Administration for failing to stop the attacks:

Advisers to Democratic candidate John Kerry have said they hope to use the report to show that in the summer of 2001 the Bush administration was inattentive to threats of a possible attack.

This is beyond disgusting, but it is typical John Kerry. The entire nation, except for the widows that Katie Couric will parade before the nation after the release of the report, realizes that with 20/20 hindsight we can see steps that could have been taken that might have prevented the attack, but in September 10th American nobody could have predicted what happened that morning. End of story.
