What Happens To The Shadow Government bush Set Up After 9/11?
There was so much talk about it on this board at the time. Has it been dissolved? Will Obama have his own version? Or was it all just a myth?

2. They were there before that, they will be there afterwards
What gets done about them is Obama's decision right now. They weren't punished During JFKs time, they weren't punished during the Nixon Era, They weren't punished during Iran-Contra...so I'm not holding my breath.

4. PE Obama is a completely different animal though
in a couple three years if nothing is going on on this front they I'm give it some thought. In the mean time I am going to do all I can to let the man know I have his back.

7. As I said, I'm not holding my breath
This is Obama's call- and Presidents have been killed over less. I'm not a "wait and see"er, but I won't think less of Obama if he lets them all get away with it. After all, how does one get elected if one threatens the powers that be?

5. Thy will remain there, undermining the USA whenever it benefits their Bushpublican Masters.
Why should the Obama Administration be any different than any other Democratic Administartion since FDR let Prescott Bush go instead of hanging him for High Treason in 1935.

(if you do not know anything of this historical FACT, then you should take twenty minutes to listen to those Conspiracy Nuts at the BBC - always making up crazy stuff, that BBC)

6. The shadow government is basically black operations intelligence. They'll be there.
They've been there since WWII. Some will report to Obama, some will do their own bidding. If Bush's recent EO's aren't overturned, even undercover agents will continue operating on their own 'intuition' without clearing anything with White House coverups. What Obama will give us is to put a damper on the extremist culture, create a chilling effect. The infrastructure will remain in place. I have zero idea if it will be used but I assume it will.

8. Bush didn't set it up - it was being built for 40 years before then...
and activated on 9/11/01, with no notice that it has ever been deactivated.

Cheney and Rumsfeld were participants in the structure and preparations/exercises even under Clinton, when the programming moved smoothly from countering a Soviet nuclear strike to "terrorism." It's unclear what Clinton even knew about this stuff in the early years of his admin.
