Senators want to make CIA release 9/11 report
WASHINGTON - A bipartisan group of senators is pushing legislation that would force the CIA to release an inspector generals report on the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

The CIA has spent more than 20 months weighing requests under the Freedom of Information Act for its internal investigation of the attacks but has yet to release any portion of it.

The agency is the only federal office involved in counterterrorism operations that has not made at least a version of its internal 9/11 investigation public.

Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and two other intelligence committee leaders chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., and senior Republican Kit Bond of Missouri are pushing legislation that would require the agency to declassify the executive summary of the review within one month and submit a report to Congress explaining why any material was withheld...

...Its amazing the efforts the administration is going to stonewall this, Wyden said. The American people have a right to know what the Central Intelligence Agency was doing in those critical months before 9/11.... I am going to bulldog this until the public gets it...

SNIP

...The AP has reported that the two-year review of what went wrong before the suicide hijackings harshly criticized a number of the agencys most senior officials.

That includes Tenet, former clandestine service chief Jim Pavitt and former counterterrorism center head Cofer Black, according to individuals familiar with the report, who spoke in 2005 on condition they not be identified...

...Pavitt is now a principal with The Scowcroft Group, an international business advisory firm, and Black is vice chairman of Blackwater USA, an international security firm whose clients include the CIA and other U.S. agencies.

2. Already? But it's only been 6 years since the subterfuge.

However, 6 years would be a hell of a long time if you didn't have something to hide. I'm just saying...

3. old news
fyi - that AP report is dated May 18.

...which puts "are pushing legislation that would require the agency to declassify the executive summary of the review within one month and submit a report to Congress explaining why any material was withheld." into some perspective....
