My hunch is that the poster has not been forthright. It was likely" that cspan.org would air the speech, according to moveon.org. Gore's words can be read at algore.com

In a revealing move, just three days ago, the White House asked the Republican leadership of the Senate to shut down the Intelligence Committee's investigation of 9/11 based on a trivial political dispute. Apparently the President is anxious to keep the Congress from seeing what are said to have been clear, strong and explicit warnings directly to him a few weeks before 9/11 that terrorists were planning to hijack commercial airliners and use them to attack us.

Astonishingly, the Republican Senate leadership quickly complied with the President's request. Such obedience and complicity in what looks like a cover-up from the majority party in a separate and supposedly co-equal branch of government makes it seem like a very long time ago when a Republican Attorney General and his deputy resigned rather than comply with an order to fire the special prosecutor investigating Richard Nixon.

If the "Memo" is so innocent, why won't Al Gore post its full contents on his website?

If the Memo is so trivial, why won't its author stand up and admit that she/he wrote it?

If the Memo is so damning to Republicans, why are ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, and the NY Times trying so hard to downplay it?

Hmmm...methinks that this Memo isn't so trivial, innocent, or a blight on Republicans at all!
