The aspens have turned...
Is this silly term going to mean something in the future?

Is this going to become a rallying cry?

Or, is this just a really dumb comment by a drunken I. Scooter Libby?

The mysteries around Plamegate are palpable today and what will they mean for the future? SUe Grafton or Tom Clancy could not have done a better job or made a better page turner. The question yet to come is what will all this mean to history?

Teapot Dome Scandal? Watergate? Clinton's or Kennedy's Indiscretions?

Or worse? Much, much worse?

What many of us here believe is that America was taken to war on a tapestry of fictions woven in patriotic cloth to anger the public and destroy a sovereign nation. We believe that the national tragedy of 9-11 was used as an excuse to feed greed and accomplish the dreams of an imperialistic group of neoconservatives who felt that America needed to control the oilfields of the Middle East for "National Security."

Will the secrets soon to be revealed go as far as many of us now hope and many of the press are now hinting at?

Are we at the cusp of the most significant piece of Presidential history since that night at Ford theater? Or will this be another anticlimactic event in the Rovian manipulation of America?

So many questions. So many hopes. So many answers within our grasp...

The aspens are waiting.

7. Wow, you caught a troll right off the bat with your excellent thread!
I hope we find out more out Scooter's odd letter about the aspens.

4. I would add
to an excellent post (thank you!) that 9/11 is a tragedy that might have been avoided. The political ramifications of using a horrendous event for political gain when it should (or could) have been avoided adds another level of "secrets" to an already almost unbelievable list of "secrets".
