They Have a Plan

Every time I think the current misadministration has reach the pinnacle of "fuck you America" they manage to top it. Consider that the White House has come up with a plan to insure continuation of government in the event of a disaster that affects the normal malfunctioning in Washington but they won't tell anybody what the plan is. That's weird as hell!
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.

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.

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?
