9/11 Widow On Commission Recusals


Kirsten Breitweiser said that
victims’ families “do not want any kind of cloud hanging over the
commission.” The effect of recusals? “. . . it just reaffirms how
important it is that this commission be beyond reproach, pure and
nonpolitical.” Kirsten, who has since taken to co-hosting Hardball, was
quoted in the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times on December 14,
2002 in response to Henry Kissinger’s recusal. No word on her response
to call for Jamie Gorelick’s recusal.
