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"?
