Real Cause for Fear

So, if the W, Rove and Co are not taking the 9/11 Commissions recommendations seriously, who should?


WASHINGTON, June 5 - Members of the Sept. 11 commission, fearing that the Bush administration and Congress will never act on some of their recommendations, are joining together almost a year after completing their final report to press the White House for information showing whether the government has done enough to prevent another catastrophic terrorist attack, commission officials said...

...Commissioners say they want the information to prepare for a series of public hearings scheduled to begin here on Monday and to draft a privately financed report that will evaluate the government's counterterrorism policies in the wake of the commission's final report last July...

We're going to ask a lot of questions," said Thomas H. Kean, who was chairman of the Sept. 11 commission and is now a board member of the 9/11 Public Discourse Project, a private educational and lobbying group.

"There are a lot of our recommendations that have not been implemented." Mr. Kean said that with terrorist groups threatening new attacks on American soil, "we don't have a lot of time left to act."

End slice:

Perhaps a privately funded investigation of this Administration is a good idea.
