CNN: stockpiling food advice edited out of Senate Report on Y2K : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Sorry if this was already posted but with 67+ threads and maybe 500 posts, you'll forgive me I'm sure. Caught a glimpse of one of the CNN reporters saying that there was advice in the original version of the report to "stockpile a small amount of food and water." The CNN reporter added that the reason for its deletion is that it was "too alarmist." If this is true, I'd like to know WHO said edit it out adn why it was considered so alarmist. Also if true, it explains Bennett's very clever remarks which seemed to say "stockpile!" and at the same time, "Don't panic." It explains Bennett's emphasis on the UK government package, which he prominently held up and waved a bit, signed by Tony Blair, the Prime Minister, as if to say, okay, Clinton, where's your signature on any of this? Where's the US government package of information and advice?

How ya doin Old Git!? Gee, like this should be a shock! I'ld love to see the unedited, what they really think, tell it like it is report. Maybe when they do get around to publishing the "final" version, we'll find out what all that testimony was. Based on the current spin, I don't think we'll see it 'til about 01/05/2000. <:)=

Oh, we'll see it all right. It'll probably be the base for Clinton's declaring martial law in December. (it and the followup reports from the Senate).

Hope you have lots of printer paper on hand for this one.

Black choppers with ninga clad dudes dropping into a small town and shooting up the place.

Is there another link to the senate document besides the CNN site? I tried to download the utilities section three times and each time it was corrupted.

The Senate Report, unedited, from the site.

Old Git: I sure would have liked to have been a fly on the wall in the "Senate Secure Room " when this report was thrown on the table yesterday morning.....Dennis
