"Both legally and politically, it's hard to imagine a more significant scandal than the President and Vice President deliberately obstructing the investigation of the 9/11 Commission by concealing and then destroying vital evidence which the Commission was seeking.

"At the beginning of his second term, Bush spoke confidently of the United States sponsoring a global democratic revolution 'with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world.' Ever since that hopeful moment, developments across the greater Middle East - above all, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon and on the West Bank - have exposed the very real limits of U.S. wisdom and power. Now the virtual impotence of the U.S. in the face of the crisis enveloping Pakistan - along with its complicity in creating that crisis - ought to discredit once and for all any notions of America fixing the world's ills."
