Bush stonewalling Hurricane Katrina investigation - huh?
Wednesday, Jan 25, the Times reported that the Bush admin is stonewalling a congressional investigation into its Hurricane Katrina response! Yes, KATRINA!
The Bush administration, citing the confidentiality of executive branch communications, said Tuesday that it did not plan to turn over certain documents about Hurricane Katrina or make senior White House officials available for sworn testimony before two Congressional committees investigating the storm response.
What do you folks think of their claims to confidentiality? Since they're most careful with their image, this means to me that the truth must be worse than the potential damage to their image caused by the stonewalling. The same thing happened with the inquiries into Cheney's energy task force meetings, the 911 investigation, the wiretapping investigation, and I suspect many more secrets we don't yet know.
They're the worst ever, n'est ce pas? (my French was intentional) If this bothers you, do something, for goodness sake! Write a letter to the editor of your local paper, email your senator, email the whitehouse, but do something to raise public consiousness of this most recent outrage.

These are just the first two that came up in a Google search so don't read anything into the choice of newspapers to quote.
Can you say Edmund Burke?
