U.S. 9/11 Report Completely Useless?

Has Sandy Berger's trouser-gate rendered the efforts of the 9/11 Commission an exercise is futility. Do America's enemies know more than do the commission? According to "Winds of Change," they probably do.

There are several points here. In addition to destroying documents, Sandy Berger was acting as an agent of the executive branch for the 9/11 Commission and was screening the information that was to be provided to them. The Bush Administration did not choose Berger to do this. The 9/11 Commission did. Then the Commission saw only what Berger wanted them to see via hiding behind the Executive Privilege implied by constitutional separation of powers. This makes the 9/11 Commission report worthless. The Commission did not see what Berger, Gorleck and Ben Veniste did not wish them to see, with the cooperation of Co-Chairmen's Kean and Hamilton.

Second, the National Archives saw multiple egregious security violation occur and DID NOTHING. They did not call security to stop and search Berger for the classified documents he stuck in his pants, his socks and his leather folder. They did not stop him from taking and keeping notes on those classified documents. Then they let it happen twice. The first time Berger did it and the second time during their "sting."

Third, there were multiple and repeated breakdowns in the reporting of this security breach. "The Kid" already mentioned the one between the Justice Department and the White House Council. There were others.

For some reason this act of treason is not getting the press coverage that it deserves.

Read the rest.
