Gone and will not be coming back

If you’re wondering, as I was, why the governor of N Dakota was recalled in 1921, lookie here.

The Congressional 9/11 report is out, and there are serious conclusions, such as that evidence of Al Qaeda intentions were more specific than we had previously been told. Still, the report can’t be taken that seriously because the Bush admin effectively stonewalled it. Its people refused to testify, release information, and this is not to the public, this is to the United States Congress, which is supposed to have oversight authority, that they told to go fuck itself, and which in fact obediently went and fucked itself, not even making a peep about being given too little information to do its job. And if you want a subtle clue about why the CIA failed to deliver helpful information before 9/11, note that they ordered Congress (!) not to report Saudi connections to the terrorists because that would offend the Saudis connected to terrorists. The Post article is good at listing the types of info the Bushies refused to share with the inquiry.

Bush: "Now more than ever, all Iraqis can know that the former regime is gone and will not be coming back." That’s what his mother told him about his pet hamster when he was 23.
