Shit Happens, But No One Ever Shits 

Via Atrios: Chapter Eight of the Report That Did Not Parcel Out Blame, "The System Was Blinking Red," a/k/a "How Bush & Co. Fucked Up" (in .PDF format).

From the Guardian, 9/11 mother Elaine Hughes's verdict on the 9/11 Commission's final report:
"It's not that I am surprised, because politicians have always been the same for hundreds of years. What angers me and annoys me is that no one has been held accountable for what they didn't do," she says. "No one has been fired, and no one has been reprimanded, and some have even been promoted."

The years since September 11 have been a political education for the families of the dead.
From NPR yesterday, an audio interview with 9/11 widow and "Jersey Girl" Kristen Breitweiser on the eve of the report's publication.
