bq.. The Bush Administration fought very hard to keep the report of the joint congressional inquiry into September 11 classified. Before that, the Bush Administration fought extremely hard to keep the report from being written at all. They stonewalled, they made sure witnesses didn’t show up for questioning, they “intimidated” witnesses.
Once it was determined that the inquiry would be made public they fought very hard to keep huge portions of it classified. In fact, even now, huge portions remain extremely secret.
….We now know why the Bush Administration has fought the release of Congress’ report on September 11 so hard. A government official, speaking to United Press International, has said “The report shows there is no link between Iraq and al-Qaeda.” UPI has a “full report”:http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=20030723-064812-9491r.
….There’s more, but I urge you to read the UPI article. It becomes incredibly clear why the Bush Administration didn’t want Congress’ report on September 11 released. It becomes incredibly clear why the Bush Administration stonewalled the September 11 report. It becomes incredibly clear what the Bush Administration had to hide.
