9/11 Commission

Glenn Reynolds has a long post on the 9/11 commission report along with plenty of links. From what I can tell, despite the spin in many publications, the 9/11 report vindicates, rather than discredits, statements made by the Bush administration. These are the facts on Iraq and Al Qaeda as I understand them: Iraq probably did not directly aid in the 9/11 attacks. There was contact and at least some cooperation between Iraq and Al Qaeda even though they didn't really like each other very much. Individual terrorists, some connected to Al Qaeda and some not, found refuge in Iraq. Saddam paid 'rewards' to the families of Palestinian suicide bombers.
