According to this article in the Washington Post, ‘some Republicans’ don’t want the 9/11 panel to release their report during the Presidential campaign because it would be ‘potentially damaging’. The problem with this statement is that it is unattributed. What Republicans? Where is this information coming from? The placement of this blurb comes after an unquoted statement attributed to House Speaker Dennis Hastert which merely states that he’s opposed to delaying the report. But does he also think that there may be damaging information in the report?
And, what kind of damaging information are we talking about? Aren’t journalists supposed to be asking these questions? Seems like someone’s not doing their job over at the Washington Post.
