Well good. It's about time the public REALLY knew what was going on behind the scenes. Maybe some of us will be vindicated for exposing the most secret administration in US history, and can finally silence all the Bushmongers.

And for God's sakes, please please please make public the Addendum to NSPD-51!!!!!!! You know, that secret attachment the congress was never allowed to view.

I personally think Obama will sweep the best ones under the rug and claim that any reports of those were erroneous. Obama is President and will soon be issuing his own memos and many will deal with sensitive national security issues. I seriously doubt that he would like the next President releasing his memos and questions his motives for such memos.

Furthermore, releasing the memo would not tell the whole story. We would still not be fully aware why the memo was written, what conditions were present that inspire the memo, or what other issues played a factor in writing up those memos.

Lol - posted this last week when I came across the site while looking for other stuff.

I put it in Political Conspiracies for use as a resource, titled "The Missing Memo's"

I won't link to it, because I flagged it for future use, and apparently that causes some kind of bug if I link it here

Yikes, sorry guys, I will concede on this one I didn't search ATS- posted it quick like. Thought it was brand new from Rawstory, and they're usually pretty good about breaking stuff.

I was overjoyed to have scooped Rawstory when I saw it on there earlier


Maybe they got it from here

Man I wish they would fix that search function! I just wasted much time posting the exact article with follow up. Which I WOULD NOT have done if the *&*&%$#@#$$ search function worked.

Anyway important topic S&F for you my friend and Budski!

lol, thanks Leo, and I soo feel your pain on the search function. Drives me nuts sometimes. Just wish I would have used it on this one as well, because as stated above, this is duplicate as well. However, sometimes the mods will keep one thread over the other open depending on a whole slew of above top secret reasons they have concealed in their black magic books. Best to just leave it to them.
