Bush to give 9/11 panel full access
Advertisements [?]
March 9, 2004 | WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush will answer privately all questions raised by a federal commission investigating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the White House said Tuesday, softening its insistence that Bush's testimony be limited to an hour.

"Nobody's watching the clock," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said.

Still, he said an hour was "a reasonable period of time to set aside for a sitting president of the United States." The White House and the commission are working on a date for the meeting with Bush. The commission urged Bush to meet with all of its members, not just the chairman and vice chairman.

The shift came after presumed Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry accused Bush of stonewalling investigations of the terrorist attacks and U.S. intelligence failures.
