1) The administration moved 700 million to Irag planning without Congress authorization. Will this surface as a durable problem?
2) Representatives of a foreign nation, Saudi Arabia, were shown the classified war plan early in planning. Isn't this a problem? Shouldn't we be unhappy about this?
3) An FBI translator has important information about warnings of 9/11 and perhaps about a new trail of responsibility. Is the Justice Dept going to sit on this forever?
4) The 9/11 commission received only about 1/3 of the thousands of documents Clinton gave to the current administration for use by the commission. What is happening to the remainder?
6) Harken insider trading by Bush, Halliburton insider trading by Cheney
7) Bush lied to Congress regarding Medicare costs. This is an impeachable crime as established in post Nixon hearings. What's up with this?
8) Republicans bribed one of their own on the Medicare vote. Isn't this illegal?
9) Deficit spending will increase. Interest rates will go up
10) Energy task force secrecy. Even if SCOTUS sides with Cheney, this will not look good. If SCOTUS sides with Sierra Club, a whole new slew of problems could arise, especially in light of high gas prices. Decision due next month?
11) Guantanamo detainee rights. If this goes against the administration, a bunch of interesting information may result. If the SCOTUS decision is for more secrecy, then our imaginations may do just as much damage. Decision due next month.
12) 9/11 Commission reports are due in summer. I can't image this will help Bush.
