In Which Texas Forensic Science Commission's New Chair Calls Out Those With "Agendas"

At 10 this morning, the state Senate Committee on Criminal Justice will have a little face time with John Bradley, the newly appointed chair of the Texas Forensic Science Commission, created in 2005 to see whether Texas should have executed Cameron Todd Willingham in 2004. (Probably not, said the August '09 report: "Investigators ... relied on bad science, unproven theories and personal bias.") Which reminds me: The TFSC's coordinator sent over a Bradley-penned "editorial" in which the Williamson County District Attorney more or less offers a sneak preview of what he'll tell state Sen. John Whitmire and the committee today. You don't even need to jump for it.
