DeFazio asks, but he's denied access
Classified info - The congressman wanted to see government plans for after a terror attack

WASHINGTON -- Oregonians called Peter DeFazio's office, worried there was a conspiracy buried in the classified portion of a White House plan for operating the government after a terrorist attack.

As a member of the U.S. House on the Homeland Security Committee, DeFazio, D-Ore., is permitted to enter a secure "bubbleroom" in the Capitol and examine classified material. So he asked the White House to see the secret documents.

On Wednesday, DeFazio got his answer: DENIED.


This is the first time DeFazio has been denied access to documents. DeFazio has asked Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., to help him access the documents.

"Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right," DeFazio said.

I'd post the whole article if I could, it's that important. Please go read.

This ties in with the martial law signing statement perfectly. Oh boy.

I'm not surprised at this. There is something big in the works and as much as I don't like to be a conspiracy theorist, I not only think we may be attacked,but I think our President and Cheney will have something to do with it. Either they know and are going to let it happen, or they are behind supporting the ones who will attack us, which will give Bush the opportunity to declare Marshall Law and to stay on as President.

"Bush administration spokesman Trey Bohn declined to say why DeFazio was denied access: 'We do not comment through the press on the process that this access entails. It is important to keep in mind that much of the information related to the continuity of government is highly sensitive.'"

Okay, so they don't "comment through the press...." What's their reasoning for not explaining to DeFazio? It's important for the Bush administration to keep in mind that this is not a dictatorship...yet.

Sometimes, it really is a conspiracy.

Just because you're paranoid doesn' t mean that they aren't really after you.

This is why I keep posting about these "executive orders" and "directives".

I'm also no conspiracy theorist, but when former Reagan officials call for impeachment, and worry about impending martial law being kicked in, I perk up my ears.

What are we going to do about it?
Call your senators, write, scream, and never stop.

The more people who are aware of this, the better off we will be, hopefully.

I don't know why people have such an aversion to the word conspiacy? they happen all the time, large, like 9/11 and small, like smoking a joint with some friends.
