Despite many an obstacle, an investigation into the September 11th attacks has concluded that they could have been avoided. No real surprise there. What is interesting is the list of people to be called to testify before the public part of the inquiry-

top officials in the FBI, CIA, Defense Department, National Security Agency and, maybe, President Bush and former President Clinton.

No doubt the two Prez’s, or their advisers, will take the opportunity to score points off each other. At least when Dubya says he knew nothing it’ll be convincing.
