Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Philip Zelikow

Alan Wirzbicki writes a short piece for The New Republic on Philip Zelikow, who has been the 9/11 Commission’s executive director. Zelikow is moving back to the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, which had been running until he was asked to be the Commission’s staff director. He traces Zelikow’s GOP credentials and his close association with Condi Rice, and some of the politics involved in all this. Since this was written before the writer read the Commission’s report, it is excusable that he writes: "How is it, then, that Zelikow steered the Commission to a report that will be critical of the Bush administration?" No doubt more will be said about Zelikow in the future.
