"The White House Has Played Cover-Up"–Former 9/11 Commission Member Max Cleland Blasts Bush
In October last year, Cleland said the Bush administration was purposely stalling the investigation because of the 2004 election. Cleland said, "As each day goes by, we learn that this government knew a whole lot more about these terrorists before Sept. 11 than it has ever admitted."
In November, after the White House set conditions for the examination of documents Cleland said, "If this decision stands, I, as a member of the commission, cannot look any American in the eye, especially family members of victims, and say the commission had full access. This investigation is now compromised."
In December 2003, Cleland stepped down from the commission to become a member of the board of directors of the Export-Import Bank of the United States.

Een jaar na zijn aanstelling op 15/12/02, verliet 9/11 Commissielid Max Cleland de commissie na scherpe kritiek. Reden van zijn kritiek waren de grote beperkingen, door de regering Bush, bij de inzage van geclassificeerde documenten. Hij zei:
"Als deze beslissing vaststaat, kan ik als lid van deze commissie geen enkele Amerikaan recht in de ogen kijken, in het bijzonder familieleden van slachtoffers, en zeggen dat de commissie volledige toegang had. Deze commissie is nu verdacht."
