9/11 Commission Report

Anyone looking for a project for the day can head over to: http://www.9-11commission.gov/. The 9/11 commission has just released their, suposedly harsh, report on 9/11 including the many intelligence failures. Enjoy. (You can download the whole document as a PDF, or download single chapters, the first of which is called Chapter 1: “We Have Some Planes.”)
