Bush wants very strict limits on WTC investigation
Washington Post | Submitted by: Mary Jane Fields
The Bush administration feels the American public isn't entitled to answers regarding the greatest attack on U.S. interests since Pearl Harbor. As part of a multipronged move to reduce government openness, President Bush is asking that the investigation be limited to committees whose proceedings are secret, keeping their findings out of the public eye. He is making the request on the grounds that it might divert personnel from from "fighting the war on terrorism". How about diverting some people from the useless War on Drugs to help out, then?
