More Proof the 9/11 Commission Didn’t Get it

By Debbie Schlussel
Last night on Palestinian Broadcasting System a/k/a PBS, a “Frontline” special on “The Enemy Within” was hardly surprising. A joint venture with the New York Times, the program basically said there is no enemy within, that there are no terrorist sleeper cells and all the cases against Islamic terrorists are trumped up.
That’s hardly a surprise, as it’s in line with the PBSNYTimesACLU official Taqiyah. Extremist Muslims who hate America are our friends, more American than even Mom or applie pie.
What’s disturbing are the comments of former 9/11 Commissioner Thomas Kean, former Republican Governor of New Jersey. With his patrician New England prep school accent, he’s the complete noblesse oblige clueless liberal GOPer package. But has an “(R)” in front of his name. So what? It’s clearly a distinction without a difference, given his comments.

Clueless 9/11 Commissioner Tom Kean

Kean was asked about the Islamic terror cell in the New Folsom State Prison in California and its plans to blow up synagogues and military recruitment centers. He dismissed this very serious, legitimate Islamic terror plot, saying, “That’s not Al-Qaeda. That’s not Al-Qaeda. We’re fighting a specific group. One organization. That’s not them. They’re not the threat.”
Uh, they aren’t?
Sorry, Gov. Kean, but you need to get a little red blood to go with your blue blood.
We are fighting Islamic terrorism and Islamic fascism. It doesn’t matter what the name on the marquee is. Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Abu Sayyaf, HAMAS, Al-Muhajiroun, Islamic extremists in prison–they are all (or should be) on our agenda. That the Republican leader of the 9/11 Commission doesn’t recognize this more than 5 years after the attacks is shocking and disturbing.
He hasn’t a clue. His commission was the “9/11″ commission. Not the “Al-Qaeda” commission. Its focus was supposed to be on how the attacks happened unthwarted and how we can stop similar ones in the future–from any sector of Islamic terrorism.
It’s as if a Weight Watchers’ spokesman said of fried foods, “that’s not the kind of fat we care about.” Yet it’s still harmful to the whole body.
Tom Kean just doesn’t get it.

So according to Thomas Kean, if one belongs to a white supremacist group other than the KKK nobody in government would recognize it as a white supremacist group?
How unfortunate for the Japanese that Kean wasn’t President in December 1941 when he would have said “the Japanese aren’t Germans and we’re at war with Germany”.

The whole bunch on the 911 commission are a bunch of political hacks with no experience in Terrorism.
The goal was to white wash any responsibility for the attacks on the Politicians who were responsible for letting it happen is the first place.
Tom Kean is an idiot and has no special knowledge about terrorism.
Just like Jamie Gorlick who mandated the wall and kept law enforcement in the dark while providing protection for the Clinton’s who were being investigated for giving Nuclear secret to China.
What was her function supposed to be on that 911 committee?

Yeah, there’s no real terror threat today according to PBS, but they still broadcast ad-nauseum about the “terror” of Senator Joe McCarthy.
