Defense Science Board Iraq Report- Read it Abroad or on Blogs 

The Pentagon's Defense Science Board published a November report that seems to have gotten better circulation in the UK than in the US. Reuters covered it, but I've yet to see a major US news source do so. It's intensely critical of the war effort in Iraq and describes the Muslim world's reaction to it in frank, uncompromising terms.

It's not hard to realize why this report didn't see the light of day until after the election. It should be required reading for Americans who still believe the war in Iraq helps fight Islamic extremism (i.e. Bush voters).

Matthew Yglesias has a fair amount of coverage on the report and some good links as well.
