Bush Soft On National Security


For the first time, the chairman of the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks is saying publicly that 9/11 could have and should have been prevented, reports CBS News Correspondent Randall Pinkston.
"As you read the report, you're going to have a pretty clear idea what wasn't done and what should have been done," [Chairman Thomas Kean] said. "This was not something that had to happen.

Appointed by the Bush administration, Kean, a former Republican governor of New Jersey, is now pointing fingers inside the administration and laying blame. "

Can we finally nail the incompetent fools who ignored Clinton's warnings? Can we finally put to rest the notion that Bush is somehow strong on national security? Can the victims' families finally get closure and see justice is done?

On the political side, will we see Bush's "Saddam Bounce" become a "9/11 Freefall"? I'd say this trumps capturing an insignificant old man hiding in a hole (friendly reminder: Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11).

Before any winger complains about liberals "politicizing" that tragic day, let me further remind everybody that Bush evokes "the lessons of September the 11th, 2001" in answer to almost every question in his faux press conferences, and the GOP cynically chose New York City for its convention, mere days before the nation's painful anniversary. It is you who have politicized 9/11, using it to bludgeon your opponents, using it to question our patriotism, using it as an excuse to erode our civil liberties and wage war.

Your political games might just come back to haunt you. As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
