E.J. Dionne hits the nail on the head today.
In the wake of the 9/11 Commission Report, Dionne points out that the American people deserve to know how and why a terror attack on our shores happened. This isn't just a Bush thing, mostly, it's a government thing. Secrecy is important to an extent, but our government's responsibility to the Constitution should supercede that, by far.
Congratulations to Tom Kean and his commissioners in doing an amazing job under ahem difficult circumstances. They were constantly stonewalled but put together recommendations that have the potential to make us much safer.
Will they be enacted? That's another question.
