Bush and Cheney will meet in a private, closed-door session beginning at 9:30 a.m. EDT at the White House with all 10 members of the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
At the administration's request, the questioning will not be recorded, nor will a stenographer be present to make a transcript. Commission members may take notes. That significantly differs with the commission's interviews with former President Clinton and former Vice President Al Gore, which a commission member said were recorded.
The testimony of Bush and Cheney will not be under oath, but they will "tell it exactly how it happened," McClellan said. McClellan said he expected Bush - not Cheney - to do most of the talking.
