In a stunning disclosure that could well have affected the outcome of the 2004 election, the New York Times reports in it's Thursday morning editions that the Bush Administration ordered a report of the 9/11 Commission to be "classified" secret.  The report is said to disclose that 52 warnings of threats of hijacking mentioning Al Qaeda, and some describing hijackings and suicide operations by the group, were delivered to the FAA in the period from April, 2001 to September 10, 2001 and that the FAA failed to act on them.

A heavily redacted unclassified version of the report was delivered to the National Archives and obtained by The Times. Former 9/11 Commission members are upset the original report was classified and remains secret to the public.

Since when are embarassing disclosures of Bush Administration incompetence a "secret"?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
