OT: Waco probe stalls in Congressgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Congressional Republicans are losing their zeal for fresh hearings into the 1993 Waco siege, the initial urgency dampened by internal bickering and concerns about the GOP's credibility in another White House investigation.
The Republicans... they promise so much, but deliver so little.

Clinton still has their files. Ya gotta hand it to him; he is one slippery son of a bitch.

Well, if you are right, then the Republicans must have some extra special slimy secrets if exposure could keep them quiet about something a rotten as Waco. What could they have done, what could be so bad that they would ransom their souls?
(Shiver..) Their treachery in this area makes me believe they would cheerfully lie about anything if it suited their purpose - even (or especially) about the outcome of Y2K.

What do you expect? They didn't get him out of office when they had the chance. Do you think they would stand up to him now?

Come on, you didn't really expect the Republicans to do any real examination of Waco, did you? Most Republicans are too cowardly to take any real stand on principle and apply that to their actions in Congress. According to Sam Francis, an award-winning editor and columnist, we have two parties in this country: The Evil Party (the Democrats) and the Stupid Party (the Republicans). I would add that the Republicans are the Cowardly Party also.
The GOP just doesn't have the backbone or the guts to go after the Justice Dept. and the FBI over Waco. All those children died in vain.

Like Y2K, the sad truth is that Joe Sixpack just does not really give a damn. What goes around comes around.
