This is the News article I am waiting to see...
Congress to Probe Bush Administrations Illegal Funding of Extremist Islamic Groups with Ties to al Qaeda and 9/11 Attacks

Washington D.C. Sources close to the offices of Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Ca) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), said Wednesday on conditions of anonymity that a probe was being initiated into the alleged illegal funding by the Bush administration of radical Islamic extremists in Saudi Arabia with close ties to al Qaeda and the 9/11 attacks.

Under investigation will be alleged funding being diverted illegally from Iraq in addition to those being provided by undisclosed Saudi sources for the purpose of disrupting Shiite organizations throughout the region and targeted assassination of Lebanese Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Testimony will be taken behind closed doors from high ranking administration officials with subpoenas to follow within days. The source added this will go all the way to the top; the White House did not immediately respond to questions concerning the investigation.


You know the Bush administration has counted on lies to gain support for their agenda. All they have ever had to do is tell a lie and keep telling it until 70% or 80% of the American people believe it.

It always has seemed to me that the truth should work just as well if you said it often enough. The Democrats in congress should give it a go; it just might work.

Seriously, the situation reported in "The New Yorker" by Seymour Hersh is the one we need to push congress on. If this administration could be shown to be funding the same extremists that flew planes into the WTC I cannot imagine how this could be anything less then devastating.

2. Hope you are getting involved in stopping the war
before it gets started!

Wes Clark's hair is on fire just like Mr. Hersh's, and so we can believe that those two know what's up.

If not, please do!

4. I am amazed at how little attention this is getting!
I replied to one of those threads with my own link to the interview on "fresh air"!

THIS IS THE ONE FOLKS!

The Bush administrations has shown flagrant disregard for constitutional law. If we had a functioning congress that practiced their constitutional duty of over site we would have seen headlines like that over the last 4 years.

We need to help congress find their conscience and a spine! Stand up America while you still can
