With all the excitement over BushCo making poor Harriet walk the plank to placate the most extremist and fascistic elements of its Far Right coalition, people are missing the biggest story of the day: Murray Waas' piece in the NATIONAL JOURNAL about Cheney and Libby, (not about them not getting indicted today) but about them blocking crucial papers from getting to the Senate Intelligence Committee. Thoroughly believing they could do no wrong-- or at least never have to pay for doing wrong-- they utterly ignored the advice of White House lawyers who told them their actions were... unwise?... illegal?... treason?

Cheney, Libby and the rest of the neo-Con traitors surrounding Bush and making up the treacherous WHIG cabal inside the heart of our government, were determined to attack Iraq at any cost and Cheney and Libby felt they had to keep the documents away from the Senate Intelligence Committee, which was investigating the use of the pre-war intelligence that blatantly deceived the American public about weapons of mass destruction.

According to Waas, "had the withheld information been turned over, according to administration and congressional sources, it likely would have shifted a portion of the blame away from the intelligence agencies to the Bush administration as to who was responsible for the erroneous information being presented to the American public, Congress, and the international community... Both Republicans and Democrats on the committee say that their investigation was hampered by the refusal of the White House to turn over key documents."

This from the article mentioned >>>>>
"The new information that Cheney and Libby blocked information to the Senate Intelligence Committee further underscores the central role played by the vice president's office in trying to blunt criticism that the Bush administration exaggerated intelligence data to make the case to go to war."

That was 2004 ... which leads me to believe that there are many MORE people inside this administration willing to tow the neocon line and hide important information concerning the lead up to war.
I have to ask, how much more deceipt needs to be uncovered before we as a people realize this administration is not on the people's side?
