9-11: Bush Opposed Adequate Funding for the 9-11 Commission

The administration provided only $3 million in "startup" funding for the Commission. [Fox News 1/27/03] It was clear from the outset that at least $14 million would be necessary for the investigation. It refused to include the necessary additional funding ($11 million) in its $75 billion supplemental spending request for Iraq, [Time 3/26/03] before eventually providing $9 million. The New York Times asked if the administration was "resorting to budgetary starvation as a tactic to hobble any politically fearless inquiry." [International Herald Tribune 4/1/03]
