9/11 Commission Report

The 9/11 Commission report is finally coming out in bits and pieces. It paints a pretty frightening picture of our command structure and the apparent ineptitude of our leadership. The juicy bits:

  • The commission is reporting the Iraq and al-Qaeda had no links
  • The commission criticized the FBI and CIA and might recommend a new intelligence agency modeled after the British MI5
  • The 9/11 plot had been under works since 1996
  • There were incredible communication breakdowns
  • The attack timeline

Of course, Bush is already on the defensive, disputing the lack of ties between Iraq and al-Qaeda. Hopefully people will understand the damning nature of the report and what it really tells us about our current leadership.
