Congressman Denied Access To Continuity Of Goverment Plan

The White House has denied Congressman Peter DeFazio's (D-Ore) access to plans for continuity of government after a disaster like a terrorist attack.

"As a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, DeFazio, D-Ore., is permitted to enter a secure "bubbleroom'' in the Capitol and examine classified material. So he asked the White House to see the secret documents.

On Wednesday, DeFazio got his answer: DENIED."

Bush administration spokesman Trey Bohn declined to say why DeFazio was denied access: 'We do not comment through the press on the process that this access entails. It is important to keep in mind that much of the information related to the continuity of government is highly sensitive.'"

How can the White House deny a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security access to the plan to keep the government running? This is bizarre. I can't help but think the White House is hiding something.

A wretched hive of scum and villainy, indeed.

Is it time to march in the streets, maybe?
