If I thought that the hearings would help us formulate a more coherent defense against vioent jihad terrorism, I would be all for it. Instead, it seems more like a brawl on the deck of the Titanic. “What did you know and when did you know– glub, glub, glub….”
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney spent more than three hours behind closed doors Thursday with the Sept. 11 commission that is charged with finding ways to prevent a repeat of the worst terrorist attack in American history. “I answered every question they asked,” Bush said.
He declined to disclose details of the Oval Office discussion, saying the commissioners would incorporate his and Cheney’s comments in their final report, set for release about three months before the November election.
The president did say the meeting as “very cordial” and the commissioners were “very interested in the recommendations that they’re going to lay out, and I’m interested in those as well.”
