06/11/2005: Dunno about you.....
but I wonder what the White House and the Secret Service have to hide: Democrats fear cover-up in probe of ouster at rally
Three congressional Democrats used the word "cover-up" Thursday in complaining about lack of results in the Secret Service investigation into the forced removal of three people from a presidential speech in March.Typical bAdministration shenanigans; they'll only tell you what they want you to know, and a lot of what they will tell you is lies, distortion and wishful thinking.
The Secret Service and the White House both know, but refuse to reveal, the identity of the man who looked and acted like a Secret Service agent, and ousted the three from the president's Denver appearance solely because of a "No more blood for oil" bumper sticker.
The Secret Service has said the man was not an agent. The White House says he was a White House volunteer.
Sen. Ken Salazar and Reps. Mark Udall and Diana DeGette, all of Colorado, months ago demanded and got the Secret Service to launch an investigation into possible charges of impersonation of an agent.
But nearly three months after the incident - and weeks after the agency interviewed witnesses in Denver - they have heard nothing in response.
"The lack of information from the Secret Service and the White House and their unresponsiveness toward this matter gives the appearance of either disinterest or a cover-up," the three wrote in a letter to Secret Service Director Ralph Basham.
The U.S. is going to hell in the proverbial handbasket, and we deserve it.
