Tomorrow Condoleeza Rice will testify in front of the 9/11 commission as to what steps the Bush Administration took to prevent our greatest disaster. The Center for American Progress has questions that should be asked but probably won't:
Why was it in our national interests for the Administration to facilitate the evacuation of Bin Laden family members and other prominent Saudis from the United States in the days immediately following 9/11?
Knowing that Afghanistan was a hotbed of terrorism, why didn't the Administration do more prior to 9/11 to increase security or plan to remove the Taliban?
If we have more questions in the course of our investigation, would you be willing to come testify under oath again?
We know the answer to the last one.
UPDATE: More Condi questions here from Peter Bergen on the NYT Op-Ed page.
