51. It's interesting.....
This PDB issue is reminding me of something else about Watergate.

I remember how people kept dismissing the burglary at the Watergate as a stupid but fairly minor issue, compared to the bombing of Cambodia, the stuff the CIA was up to, etc.

Yet, it was the cover-up of the burglary that ultimately brought down Nixon and his staff.

I'm reminded of that time again by this whole 9/11 issue. First the WH holds off on letting CR testify. Then they reluctantly declassify the PDB. Now there are more questions. Each step of the way, there appears to be some kind of coverup, some reluctance to come clean.

I think a lot of Americans were prepared to give Chimpy a pass on failing to stop 9/11. All this fussing and weirdness on the part of the WH is making people stop and take another look.

I think there is a fable about how it only takes the smallest thing to bring down a huge empire, and sometimes the smallest thing is more effective than the big attacks.
