Could Have, Should Have

Now, things are going to get interesting. Governor Kean has uncorked the king of all stink bombs and said that there are major players in the current administration who should be fired for their role in failing to stop the events of 9/11. Over the next month, public commission sessions will flesh out the case for failure and personnel change in the administration.

In 2001 and 2002 I recall repeatedly counseling patience and calm to a lot of overheated people who wanted immediate, mass firings. Well, now we're going to have a report. Now we have a blueprint to map out the failure properly. Now we're going to be able to judge properly without descending into a government crippling witch hunt. Now is the time for personnel changes that will enhance our fight in the War on Terror by improving the team leading it.

The report needs to be finished up, released, and the public needs to know the cast of incompetents and as much evidence as can prudently be made public to verify that this is not a rogue commission. I hope that the Bush administration will keep its priorities in order and be loyal to the people, and not their employees and coworkers. That's the reasonable justified expectation of every patriotic american.

HT to the Drudge Report.
