9/11 Panel Threatens to Issue Subpoena for Bush's Briefings
ASHINGTON, Feb. 9 Members of the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks warned the White House on Monday that it could face a politically damaging subpoena this week if it refused to turn over information from the highly classified Oval Office intelligence reports given to President Bush before 9/11.

The panel's chairman, Thomas H. Kean, a Republican and the former governor of New Jersey, said through a spokesman that he was hopeful an agreement would be worked out before the commission's next meeting, on Tuesday. Commission officials said that negotiations continued throughout the day on Monday and into the evening with the office of Alberto R. Gonzales, the White House counsel.

5. But they will need someone to deliver the subpoena

Sen. Bob Graham:

Second, the commission should have the power of subpoena and there should be a commitment by those agencies such as the FBI that they will enforce those subpoenas. We had a situation with our 9/11 review in which legally authorized subpoena was issued and the FBI refused to deliver it.

4. I was stunned at the level of arrogance displayed by Chimpy on MTP
on this and other issues...
"I don't testify, but I'd be glad to visit with them..."
"I'm not gonna change, see?"
Who does this little cretin think he is?? Sounds like some character that ought to be played by Cagney. What a putrid excuse for a leader...

6. And he stated they had cooperated with the panel!
They truly think the people of this country are stupid! Since when is stonewalling and hem-hawing considered cooperation? He lives in a bubble, that is for sure.
