What Michael Schiavo didn't know was that this brain-damaged woman (epilepsy) couldn't get the time of day from Jeb Bush, even though the police department she was experiencing extreme difficulties had undergone internal, FDLE and FBI investigations in the face of so many controversies that the chief resigned. Even though the judge she was experiencing extreme difficulties with was involved in frame-ups using a knowingly discredited dog handler. Even though the state attorney that refused to accept a complaint about the police department and the judge had served as a defense attorney in dog handler cases, and thrown them. Jeb is an awful man. Read what Mother Jones said in 1994: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/1994/03/whitewashing-bush-boys

Former Democratic Florida legislator/Governor/US Senator Bob Graham inserting himself into the conversation over the withheld 28 pages regarding Saudi financing of 9/11 does nothing to redeem him; his "public service" - including ten years on the Senate Intelligence Oversight Committee - remains hopelessly blackened by his unwillingness to address conviction corruption that has kept innocents incarcerated for more than 30 years, per my prior post "God damn Bob Graham," and countless other posts. Until Graham fixes the horrendous messes he personally made in "investigating" dog handlers John Preston and Thomas McGinn as Florida's governor, he shouldn't be cashing any pension checks or paychecks furnished by taxpayers. That three successive Republican Florida governors have had his back on Preston and McGinn and more - Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist, Rick Scott - is a dead giveaway that cronyism is not only stronger than their party affiliations, but stronger than their combined patriotism.

The Saudi Role in 9/11, the Story that Won't Go Away

A 4,000-page court filing on Feb. 3 by lawyers for the 9/11 families, is putting a renewed spotlight on the role of Saudi Arabia in sponsoring the 9/11 attacks, and is increasing the pressure for release of the censored 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry. 541 more words

Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Intelligence Community: Allies Against 9/11 Transparency?

By Brian McGlinchey

One of the distinguishing hallmarks of the drive to declassify the 28-page finding on foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers is the absence of vocal opposition.  1,586 more words
