84. No need to apologize. I'm "glad" that I'm the "sadder but wiser woman"
Remember, Poppy's 1991 Gulf War? Hundreds and thousands of innocent Iraqi children have perished since then because of economic sanctions. And that war was phony, too.

Oh yes, I know. I protested that war, too. Interesting to note that here in my neck of the woods, there were far more protesters at rallies in '91 than there were for the current version. This depite the fact that more people were against this war, according to polls (as I recall, anyway--'91 was a long time ago).

Regarding PAPERCLIP: Bush knows a sizable minority are aware of his family's connections to Hitler. If he doesn't appear to cooperate, the minority will grow.

I think maybe you're optimistic here, about the growth of the minority.

Besides, with Porter "Operation 40" Goss at the helm of CIA, there's nothing for Bushler to worry about. Any documents of real importance has long ago been burned or scrubbed. And in spycraft, any actions and contracts of real import are the result of a verbal agreements.

It's funny, but I've never thought of it this way. I've just supposed that the bureaucracy produces so many tons of paperwork that even the the most clandestine operations have some sort of papertrail. But you're right--why would they document the most sensitive issues? It's kind of scary to think about, actually. If you assume the most explosive stuff is undocumented; that the second most explosive stuff is documented and eventually destroyed; that the third most explosive stuff is documented, retained, and heavily redacted; and that we the people can sometimes obtain some pretty darn explosive stuff through FOIA or through whistleblowers--it makes you wonder what's REALLY going on at the very top of the foodchain. I mean, the stuff we know is enough to curl your hair--what about those "known unknowns" and the "unknown unknowns"?! I suppose the study of parapolitics is all about trying to find the traces these activities leave behind. It's like trying to determine what type of boat has gone past solely from investigating the wake.

Still, there's hope. Remember, the FBI memos that peg Poppy to Dallas on November 22, 1963. The BFEE probably thought they didn't exist. Or if they did, such proof of Bush's involvment with President Kennedy's assassination would never see the light of day. Perhaps similar documents will pop up that demonstrate the links between Dulles-Harriman-Bush and their Herr Hitler before the wear and their General Gehlen after.

Well, they're evil, but they're human (or in all probably they are, heh), and humans make mistakes. Also, there may be some unknown heroes out there working the archives, "losing" documents at inconvenient times for those seeking to destroy them, only to let them slip out another day.
