I saw part of the retirement/swearing in ceremony for Gens Myers and P. Pace yesterday - -it was quite moving - -both men seemed to choke up at least once. The President seemed to respect and like Myers a lot, and, it appears he likes Pace as well - Pace was very complimentary about the President. Myers was a great leader IMHO. I remember watching Pace on a few news conferences and think he will do well.

Additional info in the article about Gen Myers: Somewhere in all that schooling Gen. Myers managed to log 4,100 flying hours in the T-33, C-37, C-21, F-4, F-15 and F-16, including 600 combat hours in the F-4. It seems the general decided that the military life suited him, and a nation is grateful that it did.

Here's additional info in the article about what Habib said:

"I've heard professionals say that nowhere ever in history did a steel building come down with fire alone," mused the Saudi-trained imam. "It takes two or three weeks to demolish a building like that. But it [the Twin Towers] was pulled down in a couple of hours." You might be wondering where Mr. Habib is going with this. Well, he continues, "Was it 19 hijackers who brought it down, or was it a conspiracy?" But whoever did it, the imam feels really bad about it. "It was a very wrong thing."
