Well, most people probably don't think so but this is significant for a couple of reasons, IMO.

First, those meetings should not have been secret to begin with. This is a democracy and one of the most important ingredients to perserving a democracy is transparency in government. Unfortunately for America, Cheneyburton does not believe in transparency. Even more discouraging is the fact that this administration obviously does not believe in democracy, itself. Nor do they trust the people of this country with the truth.

That alone is sad.

The second reason this is significant, IMO, is because it may ultimately force the release of those who participated in those secret meetings. If an investigation is launched it is quite possible that we may finally be able find out. I have always contended that it is most likely Haliburton and Enron were major players. If so, the discovery of what may have been discussed could bring revelations.

Was the desire to invade Iraq discussed at Cheneyburton's secret Energy Task Force Meetings? If so, might that support the claims by former White House officials who insist that Iraq was on the agenda from day one? And if that were found to be true, wouldn't that expose the charade this administration has been playing all along when justifing their policy of pre-emption? In turn, wouldn't it also expose the misleading nature of all their rhetoric leading up to the war and their talking points since in defense of the war?

For the sake of democracy and liberty, we can only hope so.
