9. Why did President Bush say that he wanted the 9/11 commission to meet with him and Dick Cheney together?

(a) He wanted to have the Vice-President on hand in case he started to make jokes about weapons of mass destruction, as he'd done at a dinner for broadcast journalist.

(b) He wanted the commission to "see our body language."

(c) Ever since the Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Anzar had told him "You're nearly as unpopular as Ronald Reagan was," he needed moral support in public.

(d) He was worried that the commissioners would ask him why John Ashcroft had not included counter terrorism in his May, 2001, memo listing the new Justice Department's top priorities.
