The UPI reports that 2 members of the 9/11 investigative commission have also entered the investigation in the role of witnesses. This has provoked increased use of the word "whitewash" in discussing the commission.

"Bush's supporters, for their part, say Clinton's failure to capture or kill bin Laden after his network destroyed two U.S. embassies in east Africa emboldened the extremists to attack America on Sept. 11."

What seems odd about that complaint to me is that the CIA knew where bin Laden was in summer of 2001; two of their agents met with him in a Paris hospital where bin Laden was being treated. Maybe the mood wasn't right to arrest him at that time?? Since there's no comment about that in this story, I don't know what their explanation for that apparent discrepancy is or would be. Feel free to hold your breath waiting for the press to "press" the administration for one, but I'm not.
