79. The thing is that every news org. seems to refer to what is released
as the full PDB. If this is an "excerpt" (which for national security purposes, I can understand) - shouldn't it be reported as being only 2 pages of 11 1/2? It is that ommission that leaves the impression to readers/viewers/listeneres that this was the whole report released (leaving no question as to... well, what was left out?).

I had thought it was twelve pages (and 11 1/2 could be refered to as 12) before I read this thread - and was asking the same question. Have to say, due to poor domestic reporting, it is confusing and even newshounds like us are having trouble sorting it out (and we were paying enough attention to know there was a question, most folks don't even realize that there is a question to be asked.)
