9/11 Panel Said to Have Avoided Iraq
http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040725/ap...

<snip>
Moving to the war in Iraq just opens up a whole vast new area that I think is well beyond any reasonable interpretation of what we were supposed to do," former Rep. Lee Hamilton.

Hamilton, an Indiana Democrat, was asked on CNN's "Late Edition" why the commission did not say the United States should not go to war against countries that were not involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

He said Congress, in laying out the mission of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, set its mandate clearly on Sept. 11 and events surrounding the attacks.

"I think it's really people who are upset with the war in Iraq and of course there are many who defend it and many who criticize it (who) are trying to look at the commission report and expand the mandate from what it really should be," Hamilton said.

2. I am totally unimpressed by Hamilton. Why not Hart, who had
already studied in detail the failures pre-9/11.

3. Avoided Iraq and the elephant in the room...policy toward Israel.
A clear whitewash about the troublesome ME policies of the US and how they contribute to terrorism and hostilities around the world.
