I think we just have to accept that in the grand mess that was 9/11, Barbara Olson is a mere footnote. And it doesn't have anything to do with her politics. One could easily make the argument that they should focus on her even less, since there were dozens of other people on that plane too who got no recognition at all.
More importantly,.. Solicitor General Ted Olsen and his wife Barbara would NOT have wanted her life to be valued above anyone elses. They are/were a class act.
I imagine all those families who lost loved ones would resent her being elevated above their lost loved ones.
President Bush isn't the type to try to be in the forefront and is well known to want credit to go to others. I have a sneaking suspicion that Barbara Olsen and her wonderful husband Ted are the same way.
I could tell that those on FOX were deeply disturbed by the loss of Barbara. They DID show her face repeatedly in the beginning.
It isn't disrespectful to her.. or demeaning to her that she isn't in the forefront. She wasn't like that. Probably why we will mourn her forever..and remember her forever. I have saved SC Ted Olsens response to us here...and will keep it forever.
Ted if your reading this.. remember the "smile". Her beauty and grace, I know we will. Along with her heart, her genious and mind.
God Bless you through the holidays. We have honestly thought of you during this time. Our hearts go out to you...
