CIA Inspector General Report on 9/11

this should have been done a long time ago... this kind of stonewalling only adds to the conspiracy theories that are already swirling around and are fueled by stories of what was left out of the 9/11 commission report... what's so goddam secret that it can't be shared with the american people, unless there's something to hide...?
A bipartisan group of senators is pushing legislation that would force the CIA to release an inspector general's report on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The CIA has spent more than 20 months weighing requests under the Freedom of Information Act for its internal investigation of the attacks but has yet to release any portion of it.

The agency is the only federal office involved in counterterrorism operations that has not made at least a version of its internal 9/11 investigation public.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and two other intelligence committee leaders - chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., and senior Republican Kit Bond of Missouri - are pushing legislation that would require the agency to declassify the executive summary of the review within one month and submit a report to Congress explaining why any material was withheld.

The provision has been approved by the Senate twice, but never made into law.

and, of course, news of this comes from the guardian across the pond rather than from our own media... how perfectly typical...
