Facts on Terrorism Down the Memory Hole

Once again, when the facts show the failures of Bush's policies, the reaction is to cover up the facts. We have further evidence of Bush's failures in fighting terrorism which the Bush administration is attempting to suppress. Previously the State Department has published an annual report on Patterns of Global Terrorism. This year's report showed there were more terrorist attacks in 2004 than in any other year since the report was started in 1985.

Condoleezza Rice's office ordered that the report not be published this year after the report contradicted the Bush administration's claims of successes in the war on terrorism:

"Instead of dealing with the facts and dealing with them in an intelligent fashion, they try to hide their facts from the American public," charged Larry C. Johnson, a former CIA analyst and State Department terrorism expert who first disclosed the decision to eliminate the report in The Counterterrorism Blog, an online journal. (From Knight Ridder.)
