what we were told about terror, and not told, for political reasons"
This is a must watch video for anyone in America, no matter what political party you support, this simply is above any of that. The video is from Thursday night's "Countdown" with Keith Olbermann segment which presents a detailed time line he called "The Nexus of Politics and Terror," in which he chronicled the Bush administration's exploitation of terror threats for political gain. Olbermann's exhaustive account weaves from each revelation of an intelligence failure or a Democratic political victory to an almost immediate orange alert or "new threat" from al Qaeda.
The clip is 17 minutes long and entirely worth it, and its conclusion — "what we were told about terror, and not told, for security reasons, has overlapped considerably with what we were told about terror, and not told, for political reasons" --Please, I cannot stress how much I am hoping you take my advice and give this a look, it is important both Republican's and Democrat's learn from this, so we can prevent history from repeating itself in the future.
FYI UPDATE : The transcript of Thursday's night segment on the "Nexus of Politics and Terror" can be found at the MSNBC website. It's about halfway down the page and starts after (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) and then OLBERMANN (voice-over).
