Our Government at Work: Stonewalling the 9/11 Commission

So it seems that the co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission have the opinion that justice was obstructed -- by the CIA and the Executive Branch -- in regards to their examination the factors leading up to the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon in 2001.


The Bush administration is well-regarded as beating Stonewall Jackson at his own game. They're masters of the subject area. So, too, is the CIA. It comes as no surprise to me, or any other Joe Citizen, that our government did whatever necessary to obfuscate the issues. Why are Kean and Hamilton pissing about this? Did they really try to get to the bottom of 9/11 or did they just write a best-selling puff piece about how our government failed us?

C'mon, is anybody surprised that the CIA failed to mention anything about video tapes? Was anybody duped by BushCo? It saddens me that we cannot get to the bottom of the most horrific events of 9/11. It sickens me that anybody is surprised about it.
