-- by John Emerson
Two years ago I did a pretty thorough study of the 9/11 report. The report was released right before the Democratic Convention and didn't get the attention it deserved. (Coincidence?) My conclusion was that the Committee had put in enough information to condemn Bush, but it hadn't dotted the i's and crossed the t's, so that readers had to draw the conclusions themselves. It was a big shaggy dog story, like a string of jokes without punchlines.
This is the way people learned to write in Czarist and Stalinist Russia -- tell the smart people what they need to know, but write it in such a way that the average man won't understand it.
Here are the links. Later I'll probably pull some stuff up and repost it, but if you're interested you can go to it all now.

David Ray Griffin's excellent book on the report, 9/11 Commission Report; Omissions and Distortions should be read by all.
