9/11 Commissioners Say They Went Easy on Giuliani to Avoid Public’s Anger
“It proved difficult, if not impossible, to raise hard questions about 9/11 in New York without it being perceived as criticism of the individual police and firefighters or of Mayor Giuliani,” wrote the chairman and vice chairman, Thomas H. Kean, a Republican, and Lee H. Hamilton, a Democrat, in their book, “Without Precedent: The Inside Story of the 9/11 Commission.”
“We did not ask tough questions, nor did we get all of the information we needed to put on the public record,” they wrote.

They took it easy on Giuliani so these two want us to take everything else in their stupid report seriously? I watched some of the hearings and they were so blatantly biased poliitically that no one should take any part of it seriously. Bob Kerrey was the most supercilious of the gang of supercilious commission members. All were has beens, basically it was the death rattle of their political careers. No honorable gentlemen in that crowd.
