    How much did this guy try to grandstand? Multiple times he would try to stop her from addressing all parts of his statement or question. If this is a fact finding mission he, a former prosecutor, should not try to treat witnesses as a defense witness.

    This is not a fact-finding mission. It's a witch hunt in an election year. It would be a mistake to assume otherwise.

    What was amazing to me was the applause.

    It seemed partisan and totally misplaced...
    ...almost like cheerleaders at a funeral....

    I didn't get the point of it.....

    Exactly, although I believe this is more about the internal machinations of the federal bureaucracy than partisan politics (although the never-ending struggle between elephant and donkey will factor in sooner or later, you can bet on that). Anytime something bad happens, an investigation must be conducted, fault pinpointed, blame assigned. And chances are, whoever that blame gets assigned to will have their career and/or life destroyed as "punishment" for their "incompetence."

    Why can't we just admit the truth; 9/11 was everybody's fault, because we were, as an entire nation, completely unprepared for the kind of attack that fell upon us that day, and at the same time nobody's fault, because no one in our entire national defense/security apparatus was expecting or was even contemplating a suicide attack on such a massive and well-coordinated scale and with such cold methodology. It was a failure to think outside the box. It was a failure to fully grasp and comprehend the depravity and fanatical hatred of our enemies and just how far they were willing to go to inflict heavy damage and pain upon America and her people.

    If the goal of the Commission is to assign blame, there is your answer right there. If the goal is to prevent another attack of similar method and scale, then the Commission is a waste of time. I can assure you all that 9/11 was a one-shot deal and that it will never happen again. We now know what the Islamo-psychos are willing and able to do. If a plane is hijacked anywhere over America by terrorists, the chances of the passengers laying down like sheep to be slaughtered are not as good as they were before 9/11. If a plane flies below regulation altitude close to a U.S. city and fails to respond to the control tower requests for it to pull up or change course, it will be blown out of the sky before it gets even close to it's target. We will no longer treat airline hijackings as hostage crises. We will treat them as comandeered weapons of mass destruction.

    Dr. Rice was cool and together. They demanded to hear from her and she made them look like the witch hunters they are.

    GO Girl!!
