Questions for 2004

I've asked some of these questions before, but since the answers remain elusive, I'll repeat them:

1. Where is Osama?

2. Who sent the anthrax?

3. Who leaked Valerie Plame's CIA identity to Robert Novak?

4. What is the White House hiding about Saudi Arabia and 9/11?

5. Who will win the 2004 presidential election?

Unfortunately, while I'm fairly confident that the fifth question will be answered this year, I'm not especially optimistic that we'll know more about the other four.

The Bush administration diverted resources from Afghanistan to Iraq, making it more difficult to find Osama.

The Bush administration hasn't said much about anthrax, but did pull the US out of a biological weapons agreement in December 2001 that the world thought was a done deal.

The Bush administration has done little more than issue denials from specific individuals about the Plame leak.

The Bush administration blacked out 24 pages from the 9/11 report on Saudi Arabia and has not been especially cooperative with the 9/11 commission.

Notice a pattern here? To my mind, this means the answer to question five must NOT be George W. Bush.
