September 11 panel says government failing to act- NYT

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new report by members of the former September
11 commission faults the FBI for failing to act on the panel's
recommendations for preventing terrorist attacks, The New York Times
reported on Tuesday.

The privately funded report, scheduled for release on Thursday, will
also say the White House is not doing enough to defend civil liberties
in the post-September 11 era, the newspaper said, citing commissioners
and staff members.

The New York Times cited some commissioners as saying a civil liberties
board created by the White House lacked power and funding.

The report also takes aim at Congress for inaction on the panel's
recommendation to overhaul congressional oversight of intelligence and
terrorism issues, Timothy Roemer, a Democratic member of the commission
told the newspaper.

1. Don't you just love our "free press" who cant say who privately funded
the Commissions report? If we don't know who is funding it how are we to know whether the Report is biased or unbiased? Why do these people who didn't do the first report correctly think they can just go on their own and write another one.
