The Republican nominee John McCain had lashed out at reckless investments by Wall Street as his Democratic rival, Barrack Obama, blamed the crisis of US financial markets on policies McCain supports.

``Too many people on Wall Street have been recklessly wagering instead of making the sound investments we expected of them,'' McCain told a crowd today in Tampa, Florida. ``If I am president, we are not going to tolerate that anymore.''

"We need a 9/11 commission," McCain said Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show. "We need a commission to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it and I know we can do that and I'll do it."
