  • I can't wait until a lot of docs on 9/11 and the war get declassified. My brother carried extremely high security clearance and has tons of documents, pictures and information that he can't discuss. All he tells us is that he can't wait for everything to be declassified so he can write a tell all book on how double sided our government is, and the number of events that could have been prevented or gone about a different way.
