STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY

9-11 Commission Chair Kean and Vice Chair Hamilton today requested a private meeting with the President to discuss information relevant to the Commission's work. The President has agreed to the request. While the Chair and Vice Chair have suggested the possibility of a public session at a later time, we believe the President can provide all the requested information in the private meeting, and there is no need for any additional testimony.

1. On Keith Olberman's show on MSNBC he did say that bush*
agreed to meet with the commission but said that they would just discuss what bush* knew. Nothing about testifying, just discussing.

3. Still Negotiating
I heard on CBS that the WH and the Commission are "negotiating" whether or not bush will speak under oath.

What a bastard. Why should that be a consideration? Why would our president NOT tell the truth? What kind of president would not be proud to tell the truth?

"The announcement that Mr. Bush would appear before the 9/11 commission came less than a half-hour later, shortly before 7 p.m., in a short statement e-mailed to reporters by the White House. In it, the White House said Mr. Bush had agreed to a request for a private meeting with the commission, which is led by Thomas H. Kean, a former Republican governor of New Jersey.

"It was unclear how much of Mr. Bush's testimony would eventually be made public in a commission report. But commission officials said that much of the testimony might have to remain secret because it would almost certainly deal with highly classified intelligence matters. ..."

""The commission is delighted that the president has responded favorable to the invitation to appear at a private session," said Al Felzenberg, the panel's spokesman. "There will now be meetings between the commission staff and White House aides about time and place and format.""
