Senator Shelby: "...the full story has yet to be told"

A note from Kyle F. Hence

How refreshing to hear a powerful Republican Senator who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence reflect my sentiments exactly!

This issue will not "go away" and I will NOT "Get over it", nor I imagine will the victims' families . I continue to feel strongly that full disclosure regarding 9/11 (leaving aside Cheney's energy policy meetings) is THE achilles heal of this Administration.

When the full story is told it could be that the whole agenda that's unfolded since 9/11 pushed relentlessly by this Administration will collapse under the weight of it's own contradictions, deceptions and perhaps outright treason...time will tell as we continue to speak out and demand the truth.

Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins when we need them? Where's our 'deep throat', our outspoken critics and skeptics? Oh yeah...they've been silenced! Or have they?

Stay tuned, plug in and get the word out--

Excerpted from: By Jim Dwyer November 12, 2002

In Washington, a national commission to investigate possible lapses by the intelligence services seemed to be a near-certainty last month, having gathered broad political support around the anniversary of the attacks. To the abject frustration of family groups that had lobbied hard for such an inquiry, the plans have stalled: the Bush administration has been concerned about exposing intelligence methods, and objected to the terms of an inquiry that had been agreed to by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

This week, the matter will again be debated when Congress takes up next year's budget for intelligence. "The American people must know the full story has yet to be told," Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said at a hearing last month.
