The 9/11 Commission Per Mark Steyn
Mark Steyn is a favorite of mine. His latest column on the 9/11 Commission's failure to think outside the box is here.
In my opinion, the only person on the Commission who retains any degree of respect is John Lehman. And Steyn is right. Most of the commissioners are political folk with not enough history behind them to have moved past the need to turn their opportunity to serve the nation in a nonpartisan way into an effort to protect cronies and themselves.
Able Danger proves that the Commissioners were about very little more than adding something to their resume...and for some, protecting things already on it.
