So, the Senate Intelligence Committee finishes its report on December 11, and its chairman Senator Bob Graham gives an interview where he states his surprise that "foreign governments" were involved in the September 11 attacks, and not only financially. Graham goes on to assert that the details on what foreign countries these are, will not be made public untill after 20, maybe 30 years.
Then, stating "personal business reasons", Vice-Chairman of the new "independent" National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, led by Henry Kissinger, Mr George Mitchell, declares his resignation from the Commission post that very same day, on December 11.
Two days later, on December 13, the man himself, the accused war criminal and Bush's choice as Chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks, Mr Henry Kissinger, also resigns. Again, the reasons given are "personal business interests".
I wonder what countries these are, that Senator Graham now knows about, and how he is supposed to keep his mouth shut for so long about this. And I wonder if the findings of Graham's commission may in some way have triggered the resignation of both Chairman Kissinger and Vice-Chairman Mitchell. What countries do these men do business with? And how can their personal business interests be more important than the national security of America?
What also puzzles me, is the "20 or 30 years" thingy. When Afghanistan was a suspect, there was 20 or 30 days before bombs were falling. And with Iraq, well it isn't even a suspect, still America's "revenge" will soon fall down hard on them as well. So if Graham's "foreign governments" were one of those two unfortunate countries, my guess is it wouldn't take 20 or 30 years for that info to be made public.
From http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/congress/july-dec02/intelligence_12-11.html :
GWEN IFILL: Do you think that will ever become public, which countries you're talking about?
SEN. BOB GRAHAM: It will become public at some point when it's turned over to the archives, but that's 20 or 30 years from now. And, we need to have this information now because it's relevant to the threat that the people of the United States are facing today.
Now, does anyone have a guess which countries?
