There are about 1,260 of the 9/11 Commission Memorandum
of records listed at the National Archive. We have retrieved
about half of them, and, no surprise in our national security
crippled democracy, 1/3 of the memos have been marked
"access restricted for classification review." Many more
have the tell-tale redactions indicating that a clear view of
how government operates is still out of sight unless you
wear those cute little three monkeys uniforms compulsory
for service on investigative commissions.
Those who have dug into the vast National Archives say
the truth is there but that's just a tease listed in the
bountiful indexes of what you cannot access. Uh huh,
that is how it works, always the promise, never the
follow through unless you join the club of lifetime
non-disclosure, that is, cripple yourself and your
fellow citizenry for reasons not to know.
Worse, this madness is being imposed on nations
around the world as a condition of being given
armaments to assure their citizens are similarly
denied access. Count them, the majority of nations
are in control of their militaries and every one of the
juntas claim to be protecting the people.
The NY Times today has a report on the US governing
military junta about how it is running a new scam on the
citizenry by pretending to cut costs while assuring
military contractors their profits will be protected.
Half of the annual budget goes to the secret keepers
who willing sign away democracy for those profits.
There will be a commission to study this, yes sir,
and it will report the future is bright.
Don't get me wrong, the GI Bill saved me from lifelong
poverty. That program is one of the few which spread
the benefits widely if no where near as luxuriously as
those 250 golf courses for officers.
I know, I know, there are honorable public servants, the
vile exploiters should not tar the good persons. What would
be a great democratic move is for the good persons to
see that the villians get what they deserve.
An amusing hope.
