In committees, we trust

We must implement the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission
So wrote senate-candidate Ned Lamont. The same theme is echoed in today's Democrat radio address. Does that particular report deserve such reverence? The commission's investigation seemed to follow a conclusions first, facts later approach. Its recommendations were largely vague (e.g. from page 376: "The United States must stand for a better future"). It seems that politicians find it easier to cite this report than to define and defend a real policy.
