I don't personally know what Bush could have been hiding from the public, but clearly its more than I previously would have guessed. I never really bought into that whole "the Bush administration is hiding everything from us" hype until now. I mean, I knew that his administration would have secrets, I expect the Government to not want to be completely open about everything, but this particular story is letting off a particularly potent odor.

I feel if we knew the full extent to what our former president did behind closed doors we'd # our pants, what we do know is bad enough.

The prior release of documents was just a little taste in hopes to appease those whom he promised during his campaign. The more juicy details will be kept from the public eye for the for see able future.
