Has Osama Been Visiting the White House?
Your paranoid pResident doesn't want you to know who he's hanging with. Nor does Bush want you to know who it is that darkens the door of Cheney's office. It's a secret.
Now what in the world could Bush and Cheney have to hide?
Yahoo News -- White House visitor records closed:
WASHINGTON - The White House and the Secret Service quietly signed an agreement last spring in the midst of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal declaring that records identifying visitors to the White House are not open to the public.
The Bush administration didn't reveal the existence of the memorandum of understanding until last fall. The White House is using it to deal with a legal problem on a separate front, a ruling by a federal judge ordering the production of Secret Service logs identifying visitors to the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.
In a federal appeals court filing three weeks ago, the administration's lawyers used the memo in a legal argument aimed at overturning the judge's ruling. The Washington Post is suing for access to the Secret Service logs.
