Constitutional Expert Slams 9/11 Commission

Constitutional expert Jonathan Turley said yesterday:

[The 9/11 Commission] was a commission that was really made for Washington - a commission composed of political appointees of both parties that ran interference for those parties - a commission that insisted at the beginning it would not impose blame on individuals. So it's the ideal Washington commission - a commission that would investigate without any reprecussions.

Indeed, the 9/11 Commission itself admitted as much:

* The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission (Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton) now admit that the Commission largely operated based upon political considerations

* 9/11 Commissioner John Lehman said that “We purposely put together a staff that had – in a way - conflicts of interest"
