CIA suppresses 9/11 Report

I am so sick and tired of the government deciding what I can and can't be trusted to know. Like seeing the CIA report on Kennedy's assassination is somehow going to destroy the world. Or, the Bush administration's decision to suppress a CIA report on 9/11 until after the election. I realize it was a great line, but Jack Nicholson's famous "You can't handle the truth!" was, after all, a movie.

"It is infuriating that a report which shows that high-level people were not doing their jobs in a satisfactory manner before 9/11 is being suppressed," an intelligence official who has read the report told me, adding that "the report is potentially very embarrassing for the administration, because it makes it look like they weren't interested in terrorism before 9/11, or in holding people in the government responsible afterward."

Meanwhile, the legislature has asked the CIA for the report, to no avail. This report is two years in the making, and Congres has been asking for the report for two weeks. Understandably, after 9.11, people wanted answers. Go figure. Those pesky Americans, wanting a "why." Congress asked the CIA "to determine whether and to what extent personnel at all levels should be held accountable" for intelligence breakdowns cataloged in a joint congressional investigation of Sept. 11. They did their part, and it allegedly names names. High ranking names. Yet the CIA refuses to release this report at this time. Nope, sorry, maybe later you can know the results of this investigation that your tax dollars went into funding.

The only reason that the Kennedy report is not public, or this report is not public, is because each day, the American public wakes up and thinks, "I don't care about X." Perhaps if more people cared, we'd have answers.

Right now, I just feel like the teenager whose parent doesn't trust her.
