Yep, today's the day. Besides Bush's bizarre refusal to testify without Cheney next to him, making the entire thing seem like a strange puppet show, here are a couple of other factoids: The session will be behind closed doors. The President and Vice President have generously cleared their schedules from 9:30am to noon, devoting an entire two hours to answering questions about the most devastating attacks in US history before moving on to presumably more important things. The session WILL NOT be recorded. There WILL NOT even be a stenographer allowed in the room. And my personal favorite: Neither Bush nor Cheney will be under oath. So, basically the entire thing is a waste of time. The American people will never know what, if anything, is said during the testimony. But now Bush can say during his reelection campaign that he cooperated with the 9/11 panel. Well I certainly feel safer.
