Flap over Rice testimony grows

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-04-06-whit...

WASHINGTON Dealing with criticism that national security adviser Condoleezza Rice wouldn't testify in public before the 10-member commission investigating the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, White House spokesman Scott McClellan complained last month that when she testified in private, "only five members showed up" to hear what she had to say.

What McClellan didn't tell reporters was that on Nov. 21 long before Rice met with the five commissioners in February the White House counsel's office had sent the commission a letter saying no more than three commissioners could attend meetings with White House aides of Rice's rank.

Given that demand, "we are a little surprised that the White House has repeatedly implied to the public that commissioners were uninterested in attending these meetings," commission spokesman Al Felzenberg said Tuesday.

Is there anyone in this Poison Dwarf Junta who can open their mouths without lying?

3. And now they won't release the Sept. 11 speech
The commission is not being allowed to see the speech because it was a "draft". Must be something pretty damning they don't want the commission to see.

4. Only three allowed
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 06:19 AM by psychopomp
e.g. the panel could always be stacked 2:1 in favor of RepubliCONS.

edit: 3:1, if you count the lying Rice.

11. Geesh so many ways to go with this one
Why in the world would they think they could get away with this?
Why would they want to make the commission seem like they don't care?

This is bone stoopid.
