This is my first post to these boards but when I see statements like the above news and it is portrayed as "nonpartisan insight" it just makes me wonder. Do a google search on the names of the authors of the report: Tom Barry, Laura Carlsen, John Gershman and see if you agree that they are nonpartisian in their opinions.

BTW, you will see a lot of what you just mentioned above. Reports that claim to be non-partisan, when in fact they have an agenda of their own.
George W. Bush and his team of neo-conservative empire builders have amply demonstrated their dangerous ineptitude in managing international affairs. No longer can the choice for president be dismissed as a choice between “the lesser of two evils”—as if the candidates were merely placed at different points along the same political continuum. Three years into the Bush administration, we know enough about it to know that it is qualitatively different—and far more dangerous to the world—than anything the Democrats are likely to offer.
The Bush foreign policy based on preemptive strike, unilateral action, and ally bashing has not only made US citizens more insecure than ever. It has caused various degrees of suffering, fear and indignation throughout the world. Today’s victims of US counter-terrorism campaigns have been mostly Afghans, Iraqis, and Palestinians, whom the mainstream media has obligingly stereotyped as fanatics and uncivilized heathen so their dead children won’t pierce our hearts like our own. But their numbers are growing, and their sorrow will one day cross the barriers of culture and geography. By then it will likely have distilled into hatred.
Maybe it's just me but I rather doubt we would be in the same place we are in world history had we not been ATTACKED FIRST on 9/11

For the record, liberals now refer to themselves as "progressives". To say that a "Progressive" organization is nonpartisan is a misnomer.
