Ok folks following the "Story of the Summer", which changed from "Monday Morning Intelligence with the NY Times and Kook Aid", for those keeping track.

Just looking over this Newsday article via Qtmonster and this statement of Weldon kind of jumped out at me

"The fact that the our government had this information at one time, and possibly destroyed it, is haunting," Weldon says, adding that he does not believe the military's account that the Able/Danger data were destroyed only to comply with Pentagon regulations.

"I seriously have my doubts that it was routine," he says."

One of the madening questions - at least for some conservatives with an interest in this story is "Why in the hell is the Bush Administration being so 'tight' on this story?" I mean, "Why the stonewall?"

I think that originally people jumped on this story for the connections it had to the 911 Commission/Jamie Gorelick/Wall stuff. "Finally we got 'em!"

But after this story has been jumped all over and has been spun around all summer (at least by bloggers and a few in the MSM), you would think the Bush Administration would come out by now and say something - anything.

Now I put out last week and my source isn't budging that Cobweb - i.e. VP Cheney pulled the plug on witness participation, alhtough that appeared to reverse itself when new hearing were scheduled. Then those were pulled for the Jewish Holiday, so... back to square one.

Although I note that "reversal" came as Cobweb was entering the hospital or about that time.

in any case those hearing are on hold - a long hold - like the one you get put on when you call Dell Computer to complain.

So back to the 'disturbing question", i.e.; "Who loses if the whole story breaks?"

Well if it get's out that Hadley really did take a chart from Weldon to "take it to the man", then the man is up craps creek and incidently so is the present administration.

Hadley so far (as his spokesman) denies only that Atta wasn' on the "something" that Weldon showed him - again, "he said, he said, and no one kept a copy".

Now if you peruse some of the contributors to this story (no names), you find that some of them predominately post over at sites like Daily Kos and other left wing sites.

No problem, everyone has an agenda, but there is a ground swell of opinion from "down under" that seems to be picking up steam that it's not "Clintonistas", but "Bushhilters" that are the true culprits or "targets" and suspects of a coverup. I'm afraid that if the MSM in their present FEMA/Katrina/Rita/Delay/Frist feeding frenzy caught that angle (no matter if true or not), this thing hits the front page everywhere.

"Annie, get my gun please...."

Again, for those conservative bloggers, I asked, "Do they really want the truth".

I'll answer for myself, "Absolutely". I don't give a squat who sells us up a river, I want them hung at Sunnup - or Sundown.

But I am also keenly aware of the "Matrix" or the truth of what we think we know, and what really goes on behind closed doors. Back in '85-87 I was smack dab in the middle of one of these "Matrixes", most of us are familiar with. A great leader was caught right in the middle of a "hard squeeze play" and it was amazing to see how the MSM created one reality, the public theirs, but behind the scenes the truth was more "deep" than anyone "outside" could have dreamed of.

Well enough reminiscing.

For now unless something gets crazy or I'm spiked by one of AJ's great posts, I'm bailing on the Great Summer Story for now. Most of what we are seeing isn't new, and the rest is rehashed. Until there are real hearings (not holding my breath), we are simply not going to know squat more than we know now. Until then, the story may linger, but I don't see it prevailing - ESPECIALLY as long as the powers that be say "Cease".

Besides, Delay's in a jam, the MSM is out of control and we've got another pick on the SCOTUS. Not to mention 06/08 and I work on the Republican team down here in South Florida - it's fixing to get hot.
