They are all highly educated, very experienced, and knowledgeable. They also all believe that the Official 9/11 Commission's Report is not addressing too many legitimate questions to be considered a legitimate endeavor and that "WE the People" deserve better. Like the truth, but that just isn't going to happen unless our Congress puts the interests of the people before the interests of the large media lobbyists and the people who probably have a little "dirt" on each member and could hypothetically be holding it over their heads as a threat to remain complacent or else.Source(s): Orwell Rolls in his Grave (over Media monopolies) http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-117917551...
