Secrecy, Lies, and the Bush Administration
(archived broadcast )
Now let me get this straight…. We went to war to prevent terrorists from obtaining a vial of anthrax that could kill dozens. And, in the process, the Bush Administration allowed terrorists to obtain from a previously-secure location 760,000 pounds of explosives, enough to kill more than 200 million people?
Have you seen the evidence from the Commander of the 101st Airborne that the Bush Administration lied when it said the 101st Airborne searched for the high-grade explosives?
No wonder the Bush Administration is the most secretive in American history. It makes the Nixon Administration look like “open government.”
What else are they covering up? And why?
Guests: Rick Blum, Director of OpentheGovernment.org and OMB Watch, who will give us THE INSIDE SCOOP on what the Bush Administration is hiding from the American People and former Marine and journalist David Morris, who was “embedded” with our troops and will report on the mountain of poorly secured munitions that can be used again U.S. soldiers and citizens.
And one more cover-up that has just come to light: The Bush Administration cancelled a 2002 plan to kill Iraqi terrorist Zarqawi Source: The Wall Street Journal, Army Vice Chief of Staff General John M. Keane and Bush’s National Security Director for Combating Terrorism Lisa Gordon-Hagerty, who said, “why didn’t we get that [‘son of a b-‘] when we could.” General Tommy Franks has also confirmed the substance of the story in his book, “American Story,” but refuses to comment now since he has endorsed Bush for President.
