Nancy Pelosi: “In our very first act, we passed the 9/11 Commission recommendations to protect the American people.”
Liar, liar, pants on fire. News the day the bill was signed:
Former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., vice chairman of the 9/11 Commission, said with enactment of the bill some 80 percent of the panel’s recommendations will have been met. According to Hamilton, one shortcoming of the bill is that it fails to carry out the commission’s recommendation that Congress streamline its own overlapping setup for monitoring intelligence and homeland security matters.
