The 9/11 Secret in the CIA's Back Pocket

Read this. Talk about this. Link to this. Demand this gets released before Nov. 2nd.

My guess is that this will sneak out before Nov. 2nd given the bad relationship between the White House and the CIA.

According to the intelligence official, who spoke to me on condition of anonymity, release of the report, which represents an exhaustive 17-month investigation by an 11-member team within the agency, has been "stalled." First by acting CIA Director John McLaughlin and now by Porter J. Goss, the former Republican House member (and chairman of the Intelligence Committee) who recently was appointed CIA chief by President Bush.

The official stressed that the report was more blunt and more specific than the earlier bipartisan reports produced by the Bush-appointed Sept. 11 commission and Congress.

"What all the other reports on 9/11 did not do is point the finger at individuals, and give the how and what of their responsibility. This report does that," said the intelligence official. "The report found very senior-level officials responsible."

(insert richeous indignation here.)

seriously, I'm so pissed off at these guys that I'm almost tired of being pissed off.
