Secret Link of the Day: Knowing the Right Questions

This is a good article on the CIA assassination program that recently came to light. It provides absolutely no answers, but raises the right questions that people (that would be members of the Select Intelligence committees, the media) should be asking.

The first one is the most obvious--what the hell was Cheney doing? I am starting to think the Bush Administration did more to expand VP authority than it did to expand the powers of the Presidency.

Anyhow, as Rumsfeld so sagely said, there are known unknowns and unknown unknowns. So, who the hell knew what when? I am sympathetic with the Obama Administration's very full agenda, but I am also getting increasingly frustrated that they are acting too slowly to reveal and reverse the transgressions of their predecessors. As Obama said at the NAACP, "No excuses, No excuses," accountability and responsibility needs to kick in NOW.
