"Omission is the most powerful form of a lie." - George Orwell

(Saint James, MO.) - 911 report rejected The real issue we Americans should pay attention to in upcoming weeks is the on-going effort yet again underway in Congress that is being driven by various politicians of both political parties to disclose the redacted 28 pages of the 9/11 Report that still remain classified.
