What Are They Building in There?

The parallels between Cheney's Secret Energy Task Force meetings and the Reagan-era Secret Government meetings are intriguing.
During the Reagan administration, then-Rep. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, who was chief executive of the pharmaceutical company G.D. Searle & Co., were key players in a secret program to set aside the legal lines of succession and install a new president in a catastrophe, The Atlantic Monthly reported this month.

(March 2004)
Notice the same players, the same penchant for secrecy, etc. Now, if history has any bearing on this, it will be another 15 years before the public has any idea what actually went on inside Cheney's bunker.

I heard he was up on the
Roof last night
Signaling with a flashlight
And what's that tune he's
Always whistling...
What's he building in there?
What's he building in there?

We have a right to know...
Tom Waits (1999)
