Ashcroft on the 9/11 Commission
Former Attorney General of the United States has lambasted the 9/11 Commission by saying the commission hearings, "were not so much about discovering the truth as they were about assessing blame and grandstanding."
Of course he is and will be heavily criticized for stating the truth about the matter. The 9/11 Commission came about primarily to blame someone--specifically George W. Bush. The commission was the kind of thing that we postmodern Americans are good at--seemingly good gestures with a hidden and subversive agenda that turn goodwill into a political statement.
The 9/11 Commission was a joke and I'm glad that someone from the Bush Administration has finally said so.
