Jumping hurdles and knocking over barriers

High Country Conservative points to this post by columnist Mark Rose:

Indeed, it seems the commission was either incompetent or had the agenda of protecting the members of Washington's political class.

This intelligence web and those who have spun it and been caught in it are far too complex to be given much detail in one column. On the one hand, it is a testament to American intelligence (and that from other governments) that there has not been a terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11. On the other hand, the American people are not being told the truth about the preventability of 9/11 in the first place. Politics is ingrained so deeply in both the military and civilian bureaucracies and the 9/11 Commission that it requires a U.S. Congressman to jump hurdles and knock over barriers to piece together information that ought to have been woven together from the outset.
