Bangor Daily News calls for DSM Commission

I'm surprised and pleased by this:

How can members of Congress avoid looking like anything but irrelevant busybodies if they will occupy themselves with Major League Baseball's steroid policy but refuse to consider information that President Bush may have intentionally misled the nation about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein? Though the series of meeting minutes now known as the Downing Street memos may not turn out to be a smoking gun, they are worth knowing more about because they could help explain why the Iraq war has turned out as it has.

They go on to call for a bipartisan investigation modeled on the 9/11 Commission - which, they remind us, Bush initially opposed - to look at the assumptions that went into the war, how they might have been flawed, and how they have affected the "prolonged, bloody post-war period."

Bangor Daily News trumps Washington Post.
