What can possibly be so secret in this plan that it can't be shared with members of Congress that are on the Homeland Security Committee?
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.What kind of plan from hell have Bush and Cheney come up with that they don't want known? Even spookier to consider is what we can do about it. What if the plan is unconstitutional? Is there something we can do? Is the White House is above the law in this matter? The real question is what will the Congress do about it. Do they have more hearings or do they actually do something?
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.
