9/11 commissioners still see security oversights
"WASHINGTON - More than four years after the Sept. 11 attacks, U.S. intelligence agencies still are failing to share information while Congress battles over security funding, a panel that investigated the terrorist hijackings will conclude in a new report.
In interviews Friday, members of the former Sept. 11 commission said the government should receive a dismal grade for its lack of urgency in enacting strong security measures to prevent terror attacks.
The 10-member, bipartisan commission disbanded after issuing 41 recommendations to bolster the nation’s security in July 2004. The members have reconstituted themselves, using private funds, as the 9/11 Public Discourse Project and will release a new report Monday assessing the extent their directives have been followed.
Overall, the government has performed “not very well,” said former commission chairman Thomas Kean, former Republican governor of New Jersey."
Well, Mr. Keen, aside from the fact that we haven't been attacked since 9/11, I think we're doing pretty damn good. But aside from that, what about ABLE DANGER/Jamie Gorlick/The Wall?
Ms. Gorelick can still her 'report card' up her wazoo. More than most she is most directly responsible for the vaporization of 3000 on that day and should shut her piehole.
Until you in the commission take the freaking blinders off, what set us up for 9/11 is doomed to repeat. In fact, screw you. Let's get Weldon's Commission off the ground and get some answers.
Until then, the "dis-banded" 9/11 Omission Commission could do us all a favor by staying that way.
