Reversing weeks of White House resistance to the idea, President Barack Obama said Tuesday he’s open to creating a blue-ribbon panel to investigate Bush administration excesses during the war on terror.
“If and when there needs to be a fuller accounting of what took place during this period, I think for Congress to examine ways that it can be done in a bipartisan fashion, outside of the typical hearing process that can sometimes break down and break entirely along party lines, ... that would probably be a more sensible approach to take,” Obama said during an Oval Office press availability with King Abdullah of Jordan.
Boy, now that is a surprise! Wow!!!!!! Who would have thunk it? Great scott! Zounds! Can you believe it????
I bet the next thing he does is let himself be talked into no more drilling for oil, and a $5.00 tax on each gallon of gas!
