Who have war and the classified document be included and we can attest personally and the fact that there are default. Mechanism in place in the government in the DOD department other agencies. But I have I've got to that. Though is not for you to take a law in your hands. And simply disgorge. They government things that you think. Public as a right to see there are whistleblower and other mechanisms we can't law in place. And allow review that the individual is a government employee to bring that detention outside you can pick a man. That. There's a wrong. You can you can have it right or try to ride it.

Colored funeral muddle only bring you more of our lists or Michael Alger its durum is Colleen Simpson. Michael. And scored points in his column are doing media of this world and shoot. Boom we'd talk about consistency. Tell me number one that this is that he inquiry report. Leon Panetta former wrote CIA director and secretary. It was reported you permit the makers of pill called SeaWorld or are. Access to details about that seek to break. That killed Osama bin Laden. Allowed the film makers from two and the secret meeting.
