CIA Report: Classified Through November 2

According to this article by Robert Scheer, the Bush Administration is preventing a CIA report concerning the terror attacks from being released until after the Presidential Election.
10/19/04 "ICH" -- "Los Angeles Times" -- It is shocking: The Bush administration is suppressing a CIA report on 9/11 until after the election, and this one names names. Although the report by the inspector general's office of the CIA was completed in June, it has not been made available to the congressional intelligence committees that mandated the study almost two years ago.

"It is infuriating that a report which shows that high-level people were not doing their jobs in a satisfactory manner before 9/11 is being suppressed," an intelligence official who has read the report told me, adding that "the report is potentially very embarrassing for the administration, because it makes it look like they weren't interested in terrorism before 9/11, or in holding people in the government responsible afterward."
As Scheer correctly observes,
By law, the only legitimate reason the CIA director has for holding back such a report is national security. Yet neither Goss [Director of Central Intelligence appointee] nor McLaughlin [acting chief of the CIA] has invoked national security as an explanation for not delivering the report to Congress.
So, what gives?
