9/11 report out

No surprise there. The 800-page report on 9/11 released by the joint Congressional Committee on Intelligence yesterday finds a number of intelligence failures and miscommunications between the FBI and the CIA. It also asserts that Iraq had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks. More interestingly, it confirms what many had long suspected (see this old Moorishgirl post): that the Saudi government provided logistical and financial support to the 9/11 hijackers. But you’ll have to wait a while to know the details of Saudi involvement, since the 28 pages or so that discuss this were classified prior to the release of the report because it could “upset a key U.S. ally.” We wouldn’t want the Saudis to be upset.
Read the full 800-page report. Excerpts from the Washington Post.
