Scylla & Charybdis thinks that the Thornburgh report will not be made public to prevent criminal prosecution of CBS executives. Thornburgh’s firm’s web site insinuates that is the standard operating procedure.

…I am talking to CBS and Rather’s lawyer and any committees about the memos.

One could only hope that the Thornburgh commission will read the Wizbang, and Newcomer critiques of the Hailey report.
