"Sternly Worded Letters"...

Compromised, the old B&B treatment, bribery and blackmail from heavy money spookishdom. It's what they do.

any politician make any kind of serious accusation against another, until they become a "liability". Bush and Cheney will not go down alone if any charges are brought. They all know that. So all charges are off the table. Period. It just can't happen. It would be like a murderer bringing up charges against a kidnapper. What's that saying? "Let he who is without sin be the first to throw his stones in a glass house"? Besides, we have an attorney general who should bring charges, but what are chances of some political stooge doing that? Too many dirty ^W "state" secrets. The party rules. It will still garner over 95% of the vote.

In honor of your deep commitment and hard work in your journal to promoting honesty, fair play, greater transparency, and above all else, fundamental human rights, what can I say except well done. Well done and thank you. You don't need to be told your journal is marked as one of influence - but you might be surprised that it affects even those tasked to monitor, changing one or two beliefs and prejudices for the better, and there are many insiders who do share some of your concerns. Well done and thank you. Sincerely, one of your long-term AC readers.
