Why on Earth is Henry Kissinger in charge of investigating government mishandling of intelligence prior to and after 9/11? Isn't this the same man who oversaw the "secret bombings" in Cambodia during the Vietnam War, itself a terrorist attack on civilians? Isn't he still being sought out to answer questions regarding the numerous "disappearances" in Chile following the installation of Augusto Pinochet's military dictatorship? I seem to remember there being several lawsuits against him over exactly this. It is a major affront to the American people that such a man would be asked to lead this investigation, which is supposed to give the public answers about our government's incompetence in regards to the attacks. It was bad enough to see Admiral John Poindexter(Ret.) offered a job in the Bush administration, being a major player in the Iran-Contra scandal. Elliott Abrams, who pled guilty to lying to Congress in the same scandal, was welcomed warmly to the new administration, and given a staff position in the National Security Council.

Now is the time to get the hell out of this country. I love this place, but we elected the wrong man for the office, and now we are paying the price. The Bush administration even wants to take away the Miranda rights. Soon you will no longer have the right to remain silent. The police will be able to "coerce" a confession out of you, but it cannot be used in court. Yeah, right.
