Graham Hancock, acclaimed investigative journalist and author of "Message of the Sphinx" and "Fingerprints of the Gods" was a guest on Art Bell last night.
Besides the commercialization aspect Graham is more concerned with the real possiblity that certain objects might be removed ahead of the *big event* and squirled away without the public's knowledge.
I was impressed with Graham's presentation, which went to 'astronomical' lengths to prove that our present combination of intellect and tech HAS (at last) solved the riddle of the sphinx by using ancient starcharts and geological technology, modern technology and ancient writings.

Schieffer brought up newspaper reports of high-level resignations and departures from the CIA since the arrival of Porter Goss, how some longtime CIA officers were disgusted by the arrogant treatment they had received by Goss's henchmen.
