(May 7, 2014) The Newtown School Board meeting and the meaning of silence
"The only people who don't want to disclose the truth are those with something to hide” – Barack Obama (2010)
Let's start with the FBI. It has now released its report about Sandy Hook, which has been so massively redacted that it looks worse than a chunk of swiss cheese. So what does the FBI have to hide about Sandy Hook?
As Dave Altimari reports in The Hartford Courant, "Of the 175 pages released in response to a Courant Freedom of Information request, 64 were completely redacted and most of the other 111 pages were heavily redacted."
If the official account of a single demented shooter taking out 20 children and 6 adults on 14 December 2012 were true, there would be nothing to redact. He came, he shot, he died. There should be no more to it than that. So there has to be more to it than that.
