Clinton decries ‘pattern’ of secrecy (this is rich)

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton thinks White House delays in disclosing Dick Cheney's shotgun mishap are evidence of a vast West Wing conspiracy to stonewall journalists and voters.

Clinton told reporters Tuesday that the nearly 24-hour lag proved the White House has a "disturbing" tendency to "withhold information" no matter what the issue.

"I don't think that one incident alone tells a story, but put it all together, going back years, there's a pattern and it's a pattern that should be troubling," Clinton said during a Capitol Hill news conference criticizing the administration's handling of Hurricane Katrina.

"I don't care if you're a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent -- the refusal of this administration to level with the American people in matters large and small is very disturbing because it goes counter to the way our constitutional democracy ... is supposed to work," she added.

The DC swamp MUST be drained and thoroughly disinfected if the republic is to survive, I'm afraid.

Yeah, and didn't Billy Jeff first hear about Foster's "suicide" during or right after his interview with Larry King?

Why, what a perfect time to announce that fact....or did he need some time to practice having "a single solitary" tear fall down his face?

Just when you think you might have actually been too rough on Clinton, he opens his mouth again and it's clear you weren't rough enough. What an ignorant slut...

Wow! from the Queen of secrecy. Gee, Hil, are you referring to old Vince's suicide note (held for 30 hours)? Or did you mean those missing billing records that magically appeared in the President's living quarters (missing for years)?

The following was taken from another website; don't have permission from that poster but here is what he/she said:

Withheld Information, Clinton Division (partial list):

Juanita Broaddrick rape
Paula Jones assault
Whitewater Docs
Rose Law Firm Billing Records
Webb Hubbell payments
FBI Files
Midnight Presidential Pardons
Chinese campaign contributions

Kathleen Willey

WHY HILLARY WILL KEEP QUIET...
By Michelle Malkin · February 14, 2006 09:35 AM
...about the media uproar over the 18-hour delay in public disclosure of VP Cheney's hunting accident:

Flashback...CNN All Politics, Aug. 27, 1996

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Aug. 27) -- The same day Hillary Clinton was scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention, newly released documents suggest she was behind the 30-hour delay in releasing late White House counsel Vincent Foster's suicide note to authorities.
How the White House handled Foster's 1993 death, and the possibility that administration officials improperly removed documents from his office or impeded an official search of it, has been the subject of intense scrutiny by congressional Republicans and the media.

Well, speaking of Hilliary and secrecy, remember that time at the Westchester Airport, Hillie, when you and your entourage tried to blow through a security checkpoint and ended up injuring a cop? Where were you going and whose plane was getting you there? I don't recall that you ever said, Hillie.

I wonder how Vince Foster and Ron Brown feel about this.

Sure enough, the lead story on THE TODAY SHOW this morning was Katie Couric, Matt Lauer and Tim Russert whining about this. It's all so laughable.

Hey TODAY SHOW, how about asking the Syrian government hard questions about where the heck the WMDs are that were smuggled into it from Iraq?

I thought the 30 hours was how long it took to turn the suicide note over to the authorities, not how long it took to notify the press.

a NOTHING STORY that became a SOMETHING STORY only because the VP acted like an idiot.

How did the VP act like an idiot? What did I miss?
