The Washington Post reports today that congressional Democrats are reneging on their campaign pledge to implement all the 9/11 Commission’s recommendations. Specifically, they are balking at revamping the congressional oversight process for national intelligence agencies, a reform the commission described as “among the most difficult and important.”
Now, I don’t buy the conventional wisdom that an idea becomes good policy just because the 9/11 Commission recommends it. But I’m willing to bet that in an election when the Democrats didn’t have much of a positive agenda, this was a campaign promise that sounded good to a lot of swing voters—and one key Democratic leaders knew they would have problems putting into place long before now.
