Especially when a main stream source, Newsweek, was not afraid to question or point out grave errors in the 9/11 Commission Report?
I for one missed the conundrum that Newsweek sets out:
Powerful Democrats on Capitol Hill are clamoring for creation of a bipartisan "9/11 style" commission to investigate the legality of the Bush administration's antiterrorism tactics—especially its use of harsh interrogation [torture] techniques.(Newsweek). So, to help rectify the situation, I apologize to Newsweek and call upon Huffington Post to reject the shame they are bringing on progressives, and to publish Governor Jesse Ventura's post they censored in whoredom to despotic influences.
President Obama has been notably cool to the idea. But the case for a "truth" commission was bolstered by the disclosure this month that the CIA had destroyed 92 videotapes of the interrogations and confinement of Al Qaeda suspects. A dozen showed the use of "enhanced" techniques routinely described by human-rights groups as torture.
Lawmakers say the obvious model for such an inquiry would be the 9/11 Commission — an independent bipartisan body praised for its authoritative account of the attacks.
Footnotes in the panel's report indicate when information was obtained from detainees interrogated by the CIA. An analysis by NBC News found that more than a quarter of the report's footnotes — 441 of some 1,700 — referred to detainees who were subjected to the CIA's "enhanced" interrogation [torture] program, including the trio who were waterboarded.
Kerrey said it might take "a permanent 9/11 commission" to end the remaining mysteries of September 11. Those now calling for more 9/11-style panels would be wise to heed his words.
Otherwise, all progressives should boycott Huffington Post.
UPDATE: Huffington Post is less rabid about this now, but they have a long ways to go.
