The 9/11 Commission Report, Redux

Everyone is talking about the damn 9/11 Comission Report and now we see why Bush opposed it.

From the report we learned the following:

* A group called "al Queda" (official spelling of the US Government) plotted and executed an attack on this country on Sept. 11, 2001.

* This group is "stateless" and based largely on "ideology" and wants to murder us all.

* This group has a figurehead named "Osama bin Laden" (OSotUSG) who wants to get as many Islamist people to murder us all.

* Neither Bill Clinton nor George W. Bush did enough to either recognize the threat or work to stop it within 8 years for Clinton or 8 months for George W. Bush (Add in the fact that a meager amount of info on the growing threat that was passed from the outgoing admin to the new admin, especially after a very protracted transfer thanks to the "disputed" 2000 election. -Ed.)

* The CIA is a Cold-War relic that was underfuned and unprepared to deal with global terrorism on the scale of al Queda. Plus institutional policies (Political Correctness to the Nth) makes finding the terrorists harder despite knowing exactly which ethnic groups are trying to murder us all.

Pretty much everything we knew about 2 weeks post-Sept. 11, 2001. Thank you for your support (and Witch Hunt against Condi Rice, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Ashcroft et al) 9/11 Commission, assholes.

In this context, do you understand why Sandy Berger was accidentally stuffing down his pants official government documents about what the Clinton Admin was doing to prevent *another* attack (after WTF 1993, 2 separate African Embassy Bombings and the USS Cole in 200)?
