WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Brushing aside a veto threat, the House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to overturn a 2001 order by President George W. Bush that lets former presidents keep their papers secret indefinitely.

The measure, which drew bipartisan support and passed by a veto-busting 333-93 margin, was among White House-opposed bills the House passed that would widen access to government information and protect government whistleblowers.

Everyday sheds more daylight into the corrupt practices of the Bush Administration. Revelations from the recent investigations, formerly blocked by the Republican Majority, have provided quite a valuable yeild, which could never have been possible had Democrats not taken majority.

This week's most valuable Bill, will insure that our troops will no longer be left to the whims of Bush's unfair and immoral practice of escalation, (incorrectly named, "Surge" by Bush) of our troops, without proper equipment, training, and traditional breaks, as laid out in the Army Manual, in their deployment in the Iraqi Civil War. Congress has demanded that the money appropriated for this Iraqi Civil War, incorrectly titled the War On Terror, be spent in ways that will atleast protect our troops from being abused by the Bush Administration. Called Micro-management by the Bush/Neocon Hawks, these actions will institute benchmarks, which Iraqis have failed to meet throughout, and insure that our troops will be protected from further incompetence, poor management, and previously blocked oversight into their treatment.

In the mere six weeks of Democratic subpeona power, one can only imagine what further oversight for the nest year and a half, will uncover.

Too bad no one was micro-managing the war all along, since Rumsfeld's policies, approved by George Bush, were responsible for the huge insurgency, and increased violence, which cost the lives and limbs of so many young Americans, along with who knows how many missing billions of tax payers dollars.
