    they should just leak those last pages of the 9-11 report, or whatever it is, where the blanked the last 17 pages which talk about the Saudis.

    FUCK the saudis.  They can keep their stupid fucking oil, and their women in burkas for all I care.

    I don't see why waging class warfare isn't a winning political issue. There are a helluva lot more poor folks than rich.

    •  You mean the 28 pages. (none)
       It was the special investigation of the Senate Intelligence Committee led by Bob Graham and Richard Shelby, where 28 cool pages were redacted.  The report was produced before the Kean-Hamilton 911 commission was launched.
      •  yeah, that one (4.00)
        it really pisses me off that they think we can't see this stuff.

        You know what, I don't care what it exposes, or who it exposes.  I don't give a goddam about the Saudi Royal Family.  I don't care about there oil.

        The saudi royal family is evil, oppressive, and rerpresents everything progressives want to destroy.

        Fuck 'em

        •  Who it exposes (4.00)
            I expect it exposes and embarrasses the Texas oil men who were backed by Saudi financiers since the 1970s.

          The Saudis wanted to gain influence with the up-and-coming George HW Bush (in Congress and then head of the CIA), then with the Reagan-Bush adminisration, then the Bush-Quayle folks, and George W, too.

          That Saudi money has sloshed around a lotta, lotta places. 28 pages are protecting people closer to home than where the Arab money men live.

          •  for the record... (4.00)
            i don't care about the people closer to home either, because, as far as I am concerned, working with the Saudi Royal Family, and protecting them, is one of the main factors for 9-11.

            but seriously, thanks for your take.  More information on a subject is always apperciated.  And thanks for not being offended by my anger/language.
