Thomas H. Kean, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, President of Drew University in Madison, NJ and Chairman of the federal commission investigating the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001, told the New York Times Friday that the commission will likely subpoena several highly classified documents currently being withheld by the White House:

Any document that has to do with this investigation cannot be beyond our reach…I will not stand for it…We will use every tool at our command to get hold of every document…Anything that has to do with 9/11, we have to see it — anything.

The New York Times identifies “other commission officials” describing the commission’s interest in copies of the President’s Daily Briefing in the weeks leading up to September 11, 2001 and quotes Kean describing the White House as “quite nervous” over a public release of their contents.

Headline hoppers should then hop to Washington where the Post offer’s a second shotgun blast this morning before returning to Manhattan for a rich dose of Frank wondering, Why Are We Back In Vietnam:

You can tell that the administration itself now fears that Iraq is becoming a Vietnam by the way it has started to fear TV news…In America, at least, history always catches up with those who try to falsify it in real time…and in TV news, time moves faster now.
