    Absolutely incorrect. The military brass says they will make that recomendation to the CIC if needed.

    Actually no. It would be evident even to an impartial observer.

    Please source a hard news article, and not some editorial from the NYT. He did say no comic book cartoons :P.

    So it's O.K. for you guys to blame Clinton for 911 but heaven forbid Obama should blame Bush for leaving him a tanked economy and two wars.

    You just can't make this sheet up!

    Do you know what the word bipartisan means when it comes to investigating congressional committtees?

    Bush at the time was getting briefings from the FBI and the CIA and both were not allowed to share their information with each other by law. Both the CIA leadership and FBI leadership were Clinton leftovers. Freeh spent a controversial eight years as director of the FBI, before he left in June, 2001 under the Bush administration. But the 9/11 attack had already been hatched on his watch and he has been criticized by the 9/11 commission for not having his agents more focused on counterterrorism. And have you forgotten about Sandy Berger, National Security Adviser to Bill Clinton clear up to 2001?
    Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.

    Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.

    "I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court," Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.

    "I'm glad that the 9/11 commission has made clear that it received all the documents that it sought, all the documents that it needed, and I'm pleased to finally have this matter resolved," he added.

    Berger reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors in April to avoid a jail sentence.

    At that time, he said the reason he took the documents was so he could prepare himself and others to assist the 9/11 commission, which investigated the circumstances surrounding the 2001 terrorist attacks and published a report of its findings last year.

    The documents taken by Berger dealt with the terror threats during the 2000 millennium celebration, according to parties in the case.

    According to the charges, Berger -- between September 2 and October 2, 2003 -- "knowingly removed classified documents from the National Archives and Records Administration and stored and retained such documents at places," such as his private Washington office.

    Berger's associates admit he took five copies of an after-action report detailing the 2000 millennium terror plot from the Archives. The aides say Berger returned to his office, discovered that three of the copies appeared to be duplicates and cut them up with scissors.

    The revelations were a dramatic change from Berger's claim last year that he had made an "honest mistake" and either misplaced or unintentionally threw the documents away.

    When Archives officials contacted him after they realized documents were missing, Berger told them about the two copies he had, and returned them, along with his handwritten notes, officials said.
    CNN.com - Sandy Berger*fined $50,000*for taking documents - Sep 8, 2005
    The man stuck the documents from the archives down in his pants for cripe sakes what was he trying to hide?

    You know it is time you get off the partisan bandwagon pointing fingers and start focusing on the real threats we face as a nation due to fecklessness of parties fighting over power and demand better.

    No it will take boots on the ground. Just not our boots hopefully. It's time the folks in the region that have the most to lose from ISIS step up to the plate. We already have fighter jets from five middle eastern countries involved in the airstrikes. Hopefully that is a sign of things to come for their boots on the ground.
