    Heh heh. After Bush said he was going to make implementing the 9/11 Commission's recommendations a top priority, House GOP lawmakers are stalling it.

    Gonna be another terrific term with the GOP in charge. :rolleyes:

    surely you're not suggesting that the illusion of security isn't as good as actual security, are you? ARE YOU?

    sounds fishy to me...

    maybe i'm just cynical but this sounds like a scripted media ploy orchestrated by the whitehouse. seriously, now that they have the pathalogically devoted Goss running the cia, why on earth create any legislation to interfere with this administration's plans.

    have a couple of GOP guys take the blame in the media, make sure it's reported that both bush and cheney made phone calls to try and dissuade their blockage of the bill and bingo....everybody(well, the GOP...) wins.

    everyone remembers bush didn't even want the 911 commission created in the first place...right?

    Actually, he said he was going to make intelligence agency reform a priority but he never actually endorsed the recommendations of the 9-11 Commission. This is one of the reasons this issue has turned into such a free-for-all in Congress.
