The Wall Street Journal had an editorial today (they want your money to see the article, so they don't get a link) titled "9/11 Mischief" which begins, "Every American wants to know what went wrong in the lead-up to the 9/11 attacks." Gigot's minions proceed to compain about the series of stories highlighting the Bush Administration's stonewalling/ impeding of the 9/11 Commission. Strikes me as a perfectly valid approach for a commission to take- apply press pressure to increase cooperation. But not the Journal, to them it's a sign of nothing but politics as usual (maybe we're both right). Following a malfeasant treatment of details and fact, they wrap down their "fears" that the 9/11 Commission will be a tool of democratic politics:

The commission's final report is due in May, and the not-so-subtle threat in this week's publicity blitz is that the commission might delay releasing its findings until the Presidential campaign is really hot. We have a better idea. If this isn't a partisan exercise, then the commission should agree to take its findings out of campaign politics altogether and report them only after the 2004 election.

Aha, they've come up with it. That's exactly what we should do. Take information which may end up being vitally important and relevant to the American public's decision in November 2004 and lock it away until after the choice is made. Brilliant. I think I'll call this the "S&L Solution."
