You and I had the same take. But it in no way invalidates the good, thorough and extremely difficult work he accomplished under nearly impossible conditions, and that's the important thing to me. The failure is in the citizenry that chooses to not read and comprehend what he tried so hard to tell us.

Even in his brief press conference, his primary points were that 1) His testimony is the report; 2) every American should be concerned with what happened; and 3) (for fuck's sake) read the report.
