Hillary Clinton Calls for Full Disclosure of Government Documents

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) - During a campaign stop in Tennessee, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton pledged to push for the release of government records, including the CIA files on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

"We should be putting as much government information out as possible," said Clinton. "You all deserve to know what your government has done and is doing. This may be a little radical, but I’ve even suggested that we have bloggers inside government agencies so that people get real-time information about what’s going on."

Her comments, broadcast on C-SPAN, came on Saturday in response to a question from the Town Hall audience regarding information made public in President Gerald R. Ford’s final book, "President John F. Kennedy: Assassination Report of the Warren Commission."

The book, published by FlatSigned Press, Inc. two years before President Ford’s death, has become the focus of a recent lawsuit against radio shock jock Don Imus and his broadcasting company, for defamatory and derogatory comments Imus made about the book and its publisher.

"Ford left us his thoughts on the assassination of JFK, the destruction and concealment of important FBI and CIA documents pertaining to the assassination, and other issues spanning the decades since, yet the contents of those files are still a closely held secret," says FlatSigned Press, Inc. Chairman of the Board Tim Miller.

"As Hillary Clinton has pledged to seek full disclosure of such documents, I call for all candidates for president to make the same pledge to release the CIA, FBI and other files pertaining to the assassination of JFK so that the American people may finally know all that their government knows about the assassination of JFK."

If the law is passed then whine. You support Shrub and Co... when do you think Shrub, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice et al will be releasing theirs? After all Shrub is the one issuing edicts that his paper are not subject to the FOIA... he is the one running the Imperial presidency holding himself and his administration above the law through the most grotesque misuse and abuse of signing statements that this nation has ever witnessed, oh and let's not forget Cheney's conferences on energy and other subjects where he keeps verything locked tight because as soon as the public knows who was there and what went on he will be spending the rest of his declining years behind bars. Why aren't you calling for this, hmmm? Impeach Cheney then Impeach Bush.. remove them and try them for all their crimes. Bill Clinton lied about an affair... something having nothing to do with his doing his job as president. Cheney and Shrub (and others) are guilty of some of the most egregious violations of official trust, violations of the constitution, violations of international law and possibly even are guilty of actions that may rise to the level of war crimes and/or crimes against humanity. If Clinton was impeached (but of course not removed because that whole thing was just the capper of a politically motivated farce) then we MUST impeach (and remove and lock up) Cheney and Shrub. Otherwise this country is just a laughingstock globally. If what Shrub and Co have does does not warrant impeachment what the hell does? (short of lying about an affair of course). Ah well...
