9/11 Commission Report Out Thurs

Well, about two weeks ago we learned that the CIA got it completely wrong on Iraq. This week we'll get to hear the complete story of the data and events leading up to 9/11. Hindsight is always 20/20, but reviewing our intelligence failures is crucial if we don't want this sort of stuff happening again. Interesting that the news is already reporting that the commission is urging the appointment of an Intelligence Tsar to oversee the 20-odd intelligence agencies within the federal government. I would expect the President to oppose this provision, just like he opposed the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the press, especially since the administration doesn't have the FMA to hide behind this week.

Summary of the report can be found here:
