Member of Homeland Security Committee denied access

"Constituents called Rep. 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 House Committee on Homeland Security, 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.

"I just can't believe they're going to deny a member of Congress the right of reviewing how they plan to conduct the government of the United States after a significant terrorist attack,'' DeFazio said."

I'm not surprised, and I'm glad.

There are tens of thousands of potential terrorists, there are a million or more potential sympathesizers. If we detained them after a major terrorist attack, there are even a larger number of people who would oppose taking the necessary steps - especially if told of them in advance.

We need to trust George Bush to protect our country, support him in his efforts, and stop all the complaining and moaning.

Yes, we should always pray for God's protection and guidance.

And I am certain that the forces of law and order will have to pull off lots of fingernails and apply electrodes to genitals to ensure that only the faithful remain above ground when the tribulation starts.

Well, you see, he WAS a Democrat.  And it's widely known they have Terrorist Sympathies.
