Bush asks Daschle to limit Sept. 11 probes

With 9/11 front and center in the GOP debates and the bogus benghazi hearings dragging on .. Here's a blast from the past that compares and contrasts the handling of each ..

January 29, 2002 Posted: 9:26 PM EST (0226 GMT)
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush personally asked Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle Tuesday to limit the congressional investigation into the events of September 11, congressional and White House sources told CNN.

The request was made at a private meeting with congressional leaders Tuesday morning. Sources said Bush initiated the conversation.

He asked that only the House and Senate intelligence committees look into the potential breakdowns among federal agencies that could have allowed the terrorist attacks to occur, rather than a broader inquiry that some lawmakers have proposed, the sources said

Tuesday's discussion followed a rare call to Daschle from Vice President Dick Cheney last Friday to make the same request.

"The vice president expressed the concern that a review of what happened on September 11 would take resources and personnel away from the effort in the war on terrorism," Daschle told reporters...

Of course we now know the delaying tactic worked. Later that same year Paul Wellstone died, Democrats lost control of the Senate, and Bush-Cheney never faced any serious investigation into their handling of 9/11.

3. That was his "desperately-bipartisan"-phase.

Obama tried to keep it presidential and bipartisan.

6. 13-years since Paul Wellstone died in a plane crash

13-years on Sunday (10/25/2015) and the US left is still looking for a leader like Wellstone.

Justin Trudeau just did it in Canada. Although until Paul Wellstone came around it had really been a generation since RFK left those on the left in this Country leaderless. Since the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin they're still looking for that type of leader in Israel too.

BTW what would have happened if Dubya would have been grilled for 11-hours about his handling of 9/11?

7. Cleland & Wellstone

It's also worth remembering that along with the tragedy that befell Paul Wellstone and his family .. that Max Cleland was, by most accounts, e-vote'd out of office at the same time. Thus allowing the Republicans to take control of the US Senate.

9. The 911 investigation is required

The Mangled Media

Of course Bush had good reason to avoid any comments about investigating 911, for Bush as the decider, held the door open to allowing 911 to happen.

"O'er the Ramparts We Watched" as Jeb Bush redacted, obscured or removed sensitive information for publication or ...public to know their family friends the Bin Laden’s secretly made way to speed away from America soil just after 911.

After reading Gerald Posners book ‘Secrets of the Kingdom” or Russ Bakers book “Family Secrets” and Marc Goodman “Future Crimes” many can connect the dots of corruption with ease.

Better yet render in Cinema Scope perception with surround sound of breaking news conclude American modern media is the key player in the fraud of 911.

This political theater totally enjoyed and exploited by top news people connected to the Bush administration.

There are very interesting ties to many secret metadata files subcontracted out especially to the famous public relations firm Booze Allen and Hamilton.

Many in mainstream media have no recourse but to make every effort avoiding complicity in treason.

Avoiding mention of insider information trading by MSNBC Mika Brzezinski has a close relation to those Booze Allen and Hamilton resources.

Better yet, the crème de la crème of treason is known but never talked about that is the close friends of the Bush are the Bin Laden’s terrorist group did share business partnership with the Bush family for decades.

That Bush/ Bin Laden family Business relation would resonate clear to be deduced as an act of treason making a 911 investigation required.
