Well, I haven't yet read the report. But I listened to a good portion of the hearings (on NPR), and I'm not at all surprised. (I'm almost inclined not to bother.)
Again, I'd recommend instead "The War On Freedom: How and Why America was Attacked September 11, 2001" by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, Executive Director of The Institute for Policy Research & Development, in Brighton, England. I'm only about half way through it so far, and already I'm almost completely convinced that the Bush administration deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen. At least, it's the most plausible explanation--and the only one, really, than explains all the anomalies on that day. The media's silence on these anomalies and questions is deafening--especially now, when they are once again quite timely and appropriate, given the recent release of the 911 Commission Report.
Ah well. What do you expect, I guess. To quote from the first sentence of this article, ". . . outlets like Fox News are worse than the Stalinist-era propaganda. At least in Soviet Russia, . . people knew they were getting the official party line."
But, the internet is a beautiful thing. You don't even have to buy a book, or even go to a library. If you want more information about the September 11th attacks, rather than the official story [or stories] put out by the government and unquestioningly parroted by the meek U.S. media, here are some good resources:
The Great Deception: What really happened on Sept. 11, 2001
WarOnFreedom.org : 9/11 Links
More resources (don't believe everything you read, of course; but, if you give two shits about 9-11, about the truth, about this country, about war, about the world, about the future of this world . . . you owe it to yourself and to the world to be informed and seek the truth and to ask every question):
and many more...
