my questions to you are<quoted text>
President Bush and Vice President Cheney met with the entire 10-member bipartisan commission at a meeting in the Oval Office. They answered questions from the commissioners for more than three hours.
A statement from the 9/11 commission described the meeting as "extraordinary" and thanked the two men for their cooperation.
"The commission found the president and the vice president forthcoming and candid," the statement said. "The information they provided will be of great assistance to the commission as it completes its final report."

2. Why were they questioned together, something that is never, ever done?
3. Why did they refuse to testify publicly?
