Bush Willing to Provide Some Documents to 9/11 Panel

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush said on Tuesday he was willing to give the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks limited access to at least a portion of the daily intelligence reports that he was provided before the attacks.
The White House hoped the offer -- contingent on reaching an accord to guard against the release of sensitive information -- would help avert a legal standoff with the commission, which had said it may subpoena the White House to gain access to the documents if they are not released within weeks.
"I believe we can reach a proper accord to protect the integrity of the daily brief process and at the same time allow them a chance to take a look and see what was in the certain daily briefs that they would like to see," Bush told a Rose Garden news conference.
Bush said procedures have yet to be worked out to govern the commission's access to the intelligence reports it has requested. Aides said White House counsel Alberto Gonzales was negotiating the details.
A Bush administration official said there were several options, from providing special briefings to committee members to allowing them to review -- but not copy -- the classified documents in a secure room at the White House.
Democratic and Republican lawmakers have called on the White House to be more forthcoming with the commission.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman, a Democratic presidential candidate, accused the White House of resorting to "secrecy, stonewalling and foot dragging."
The White House raised initial objections to providing the documents on national security grounds.
"It is important for me to protect national security," Bush said on Tuesday, adding: "It's important for the writers of the presidential daily brief to feel comfortable that the documents will never be politicized and/or unnecessarily exposed for public purview."
Created by the U.S. Congress, the 10-member National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States is examining lapses in intelligence and national security before the hijacked plane attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon which killed about 3,000 people.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the president's staff had provided "unprecedented cooperation and access" to the commission and had turned over more than two million pages of materials as well as hundreds of briefings and interviews with administration officials.
