Hindsight is always 20/20

William Safire talks about how the 9/11 commission is getting out of control.
"Don't blame the media for jumping on the politically charged Zelikow report. Blame the commission's leaders for ducking responsibility for its interim findings. Kean and Hamilton have allowed themselves to be jerked around by a manipulative staff.

I hate how this commissionhas become so political. But it was totally inevitable. The only purpose I see it having is to gather up primary sources of information that historians will explore in years to come. Hopefully, they'll be a little more objective in their finding.

If there was to be a congressional commission, it should have been formed in a non-election year.
