40. Why Indeed ??
here's some useless speculation ...

1. democrats pushed for this investigation ... perhaps they "held some damaging cards" against those near and dear to bush ... or against bush himself ... maybe this was the best compromise bush could get ...

2. maybe the "big boys" (i.e. bush, cheney, rove?) are innocent and it was becoming "a coverup" for them to continue obstructing the process to protect someone down the chain of command ...

3. maybe the big boys are GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY and they think they can "adjust" the evidence so that someone lower down the chain takes the hit either voluntarily or otherwise ...

The timing of this is very strange indeed ... while i suppose it's possible that we could get an instant dump of evidence and tie up all the loose ends right away, these things have a habit of dragging on and on and on ... there's no way the white house wants this rearing its ugly little head repeatedly during the election season ...

What I'll be interested to see is the scope of the investigation ... when little Kenny Starr went on his witch-hunt against the Clinton's, he investigated whatever he damn well pleased, whether it was related to whitewater or not ...

bushie-boy will be in serious trouble if the scope is broadened and fitzgerald's investigation spills over into the "lying about WMD" (and all the other pre-Iraq lies) business ... and imagine this investigation pooling some of its information with the 9/11 commission ... can you imagine multiple commissions having to subpoena records from the white house because bushie-boy decides to stonewall and cover up the truth on these critical national issues? fighting multiple prosecutors on multiple fronts is no way to run an election campaign ...
