The Whitehouse is clearly not happy with Leverett's report :

A former Bush official has been blocked by the White House from writing an Op-Ed for The New York Times based on a report which was already approved by the CIA. On Friday, Flynt Leverett, a former government official who worked on President Bush's National Security Council staff and now serves as a senior fellow and Director of the Geopolitics of Energy Initiative at the New America Foundation, revealed in remarks made at a Center for American Progress panel that the Op-Ed which includes "stuff that Secretary Powell, Secretary Rice, Deputy Secretary Armitage have talked about publicly" has been blocked by the Bush Administration.
