Safire Assails 9/11 Commission Posturing

In his op-ed piece entitled The Zelikow Report, New York Times columnist William Safire (one of the few reasons to read The Slimes nowadays) assails the swiftness with which major media outlets jumped on the report of what the Commission stated was a 'lack of connection between Saddam Hussein's Iraqi Regime and the perpetrators of 9/11.

Did you know that the report detailing these findings was not the final report on the matter? Did you also know that contradictory information came out within twenty-four hours of this interim report? Not if you didn't read beyond the headlines of the Washington Post, the Times, or the Associated Press reports that headlined many of the world's front pages, you didn't.
