Clinton records opened to 9/11 Commission

by on April 2nd, 2004

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Bush administration gave the federal panel reviewing the Sept. 11 attacks access Friday to thousands of classified counterterrorism documents from the Clinton administration.

Bush officials granted the Sept. 11 commission’s request to review the material after Bruce Lindsey, former legal adviser to President Clinton, said the administration failed to turn over all of Clinton’s records to the panel.

The commission’s lawyers will begin reviewing the material Monday and should know within a day and a half if additional documents should be released, said commission spokesman Al Felzenberg. The panel isn’t making prejudgments until then, he said.
