Who elected the 9/11 Commission?
: The New York Post echoed my concern about the swallowed-whole recommendations (read: dictates) of the 9/11 Commission. Our leaders should be taking these watered-down-by-consensus suggestions and having the vision and courage to create the reforms that will truly protect us. Instead, Kerry and Bush and legislators aplenty are falling over themselves to do as they’re told by the commission. And then they’ll think they’ll have done their job to protect us. And they’ll be wrong. Says the Post editorial:
Members of the 9/11 Commission are rapidly becoming the dinner guests who won’t leave.
On Tuesday, Co-Chairmen Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton were on Capitol Hill, insisting that Congress pass the panel’s recommendations in toto, despite legitimate reservations from some Pentagon officials.
Let’s cut to the chase: The panel’s members completed the job they were asked to do. They need to vanish.
