A country that hides something is a country that is afraid of getting caught

President Bush ordered Vice President Cheney to release the Energy Task Force records that he has been withholding from the GAO today, saying "A country that hides something is a country that is afraid of getting caught."

President Bush has rescinded his executive order that restricts public access to presidential papers and "reverses the very premise of the 1978 Presidential Records Act." Asked for the rationale behind the reverse, Bush claimed "A country that hides something is a country that is afraid of getting caught."

President Bush has committed to present details of a case involving "an Algerian man detained as part of a roundup of Muslim men after the September 11 terrorist attacks." The Supreme Court had asked "that the solicitor general file a response in the case, in which the federal government has refused to release the man's identity or even confirm the existence of the case and its circumstances." Deploring the consequences of a Star Chamber trial in an American court, Bush replied, "A country that hides something is a country that is afraid of getting caught."
