We deserve more than one hour, Mr. President!
The purpose of this thread is to discuss the 9/11 commission and the President's continued stonewalling of it. I hope that word lodges in the throat of all Bush cheerleaders and those who refuse to think the President has ever done anything wrong. Well, he's ****ed up on a grand scale for everyone to see. An article in the New York Times says the President opposed the creation of the commission from the beginning. In other words, he OPPOSED even CREATING an independent investigation to examine one of the biggest intelligence failures, if not the biggest, in U.S. history. How do you justify that? The President then OPPOSED extending the deadline, despite objections from the committee on the grounds that it was not yet finished. How do you justify that? Finally, the President has agreed not to testify but only to "answer questions" from the commission. But that's not even the egregious part. The President will only answer questions for ONE HOUR- and only from the top two officials. Why the strict limits? How do you justify that?
