The 9/11 report. This from the Guardian: The full report is available here.

"A big failure of this commission in my opinion is that it dealt mostly with the mechanics of the attacks and not the religious, cultural and political elements involved. Given the thinking process of Bush, he will never understand these factors."

"A key recommendation of the report is that the US to create an "intelligence tsar". Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and the families of the 9/11 victims have been pushing this proposal. Once again, Bush is opposed and dragging his feet, but I predict he will cave in before the November election and then act as if it were his proposal."

"If I had been a member of the commission, I would have summarised my belief by calling the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld team the "axis of liars" for not taking direct responsibility for their failures and misleading the American people and world leaders about what they knew both before and after the invasion of Iraq.
