"Nor is it clear whether the commission's broader mandate will keep it from
delving too deeply into the specific failures by the C.I.A. and other

"There is significance in the fact that one of the two police inspectors who

'Governments come and go, but the police remain.'"
--Leon Trotsky, My Life, Chapter 20
