Kerry and the 9/11 Commission

Andrew C. McCarthy takes apart John Kerry’s position on the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations. He thinks it is outrageous that Kerry wants the Commissions’ recommendations adopted tout de suite without elaborating. And, no one is asking him to. "After two decades in the Senate, Kerry is bereft of notable lawmaking accomplishments. Nonetheless, he has touted his membership on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence from 1993 to early 2001 as a powerful presidential credential. But that stance could not be more at odds with the 9/11 commission’s findings."

But in touting his membership he’s really telling us that: since he hardly attended any of the Committee meetings, documented re: public meetings, better than CBS assumption same held true for closed door classified meetings, he’s not responsible for those failures alluded to in 9-11 report, and, had he been there, said lapses would not have occurred because he served in Vietnam and Bush didn’t.
