I will probably mass email some or all of these later- for others so inclined: Go here:

Ignorance Making You Ill? Cure It!

for links, tools, & instructions about how to contact a pile of different people, and how to send a link to this story right here ( or anywhere else ) to a "mass email" using Outlook Express.


Do be advised that since I increased my volume of mass emails to letters to editors I have gotten return volleys of virus attacks- my ISP filters them out before the get to my PC, but if yours does not, take appropriate precautions to guard your PC.

I take this as a positive- my emails are simply links with no editorial content; so the other side must fear & loath the information even reaching the public.

Good work, backhoe. This story has "legs" as far as the media is concerned and is not going to go away for a LONG time, all of which will dangerously distract a White House strategy during a time of war. The Democrats are acting disgracefully and have reached a new low, even for them.

Last night on one of the evening broadcasts (sorry don't remember which one - was channel surfing to see just how bad the coverage of this story was going to be) - the anchor re-played Dick Cheney on the Tim Russert show stating there had been a lot of intelligence chatter that something big was going to happen. It's not like this was hidden from anybody.

The report — titled the "Sociology and Psychology of Terrorism: Who Becomes a Terrorist and Why?" — noted that a terrorist linked to al Qaeda, who was arrested in the Philippines in 1995 and later convicted for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, had suggested that such a suicide strike by a jetliner was possible.

The report was prepared for the NIC, which is made up of a dozen senior intelligence officers who assist the U.S. intelligence community in analyzing threats and priorities.

"Ramzi Yousef had planned to do this against the CIA headquarters," the report said.

Mr. Clinton yesterday said he knew about the dangerous potential of bin Laden, but discounted the suggestion that the 1999 analysis should have alerted his administration to the possibility of a terrorist attack on the scale of the September 11 attacks.

"That has nothing to do with intelligence," Mr. Clinton told the Associated Press while in Hawaii on a two-day stopover on the way to East Timor. "All that says is they used public sources to speculate on what bin Laden might do. That doesn't have anything to do with what the intelligence people, the CIA or the FBI, tell the administration."

The implications of this line of thinking are chilling. Does anyone think that a position paper on national security threats contracted by intel agencies would only use information in the public domain? These folks get high level clearances and see it all to make their threat assessments. If Clinton had ever met with his National Security team he may have understood this.

I was just watching New 4 New York & they had a 6 year old girl on, who's father was killed on 9-11. The host had her read part of her letter to GWB ("the part we highlighted", said the host). And, the little girls starts reading..."did you know this was going to happen...".

I couldn't believe it. How disgusting to use a child to throw your political crap. The left are the true Evil Doers of this country.

The one thing that differs from eight years ago when the Democrat pitbulls could sink their teeth into a political scrap of their likeing is they had ultimate media support and no opposition.

Today we have in our arsenal: Rush; Sean; Fox Television and FreeRepublic and stalwarts here like you. Plus Bush is canny. I don't always like the things he's done but he's canny. The court of public opinion is not so easily swayed by the court jesters this time around. V's wife.

It's a typical leftist technique- here in flyover country, their "for the sake of the children" has been a standing joke for years. The elitists who push this drivel have no idea of the bitter well of resentment they are plumbing with average Americans.

Howdy, V's wife... yes, things have changed for the better regarding the flow of information. I know it's not quite as profound as we'd all like, but I do thing the web and talk radio are doing a lot towards bypassing the corrupt, celebrity-worshipping media. See reply #4... I wish I had expounded a little more on that subject, but it's sufficient to give you a feel for what I observed as it happened.

I actually noticed a similar thing happen the day before during the "Picture Issue"-- as the Jackal Pack press began circling, more & more angry callers came up on talk radio with refutations that seemed to have come off the web.

The FBI and CIA seem to be at the center of the problem:

"June 2001 - German intelligence, the BND, warns the CIA and Israel that Middle Eastern terrorists are "planning to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture." [Source: Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, September 14, 2001.]

A French secret service report on September 7 warned of possible attacks, and that the order to act would come from Afghanistan. Le Figaro says very precise information on targets for attack was communicated to the CIA.

Summer 2001 - An Iranian man phones U.S. law enforcement to warn of an imminent attack on the World Trade Center in the week of September 9th. German police confirm the calls but state that the U.S. Secret Service would not reveal any further information. [Source: German news agency "online.ie", September 14, 2001]

August 2001 - The FBI arrests an Islamic militant linked to Bin Laden in Boston. French intelligence sources confirm that the man is a key member of Bin Laden's network and the FBI learns that he has been taking flying lessons. At the time of his arrest the man is in possession of technical information on Boeing aircraft and flight manuals. [Source: Reuters, September 13]

Summer 2001 - Russian intelligence notifies the CIA that 25 terrorist pilots have been specifically training for suicide missions. This is reported in the Russian press and news stories are translated for FTW by a retired CIA officer."

You mentioned the 'picture issue'. I couldn't figure why they were saying what they were. They used a picture of Robert Kennedy and President Kennedy during the Bay of Pigs... also I think if someone bothered to check what types of things were used during the election between clinton's terms, we would probably find a lot of bubba at disater sites, be they from flooding or hurricanes. He used everything as a photo op, so I would imagine it would be easier to show bubba as THE exploiter.

They destroyed Nixon. They have started destroying Bush. Meanwhile back at the Crawford Ranch Bush has invited all the groups that will never vote for him to a barbecque and told his loyal friends not to show up. He doe's not need them anymore. He will be the new Lord of the Illegals. Wake up fool.

I have always suspected that part of Clintons ability to get away with things was partly a result of his resemblence to Elvis. Both looks and mannerisms.

Even if it had been from the WTC site, I still don't think it could be taken as exploitation. He IS the President and would have every right to have been photographed there and to use the photo would be just a reminder that he was there and that we need to stay vigilent in hopes of preventing this sort of thing from happening again.

Exploiting would be if someone that had no right to be there were taking pics to make money. imo

backhoe, as far as I'm concerned the democrat leadership has thrust their sword in our sides and are gleefully twisting it.

I've been angered by their constant nitpicking, constant nagging, lack of proactive discourse and lastly this recent spurious slanderous allegation that our President Bush is so evil that he would sit there and allow thousands of innocent Americans die is the last straw that will hopefully break the donkey's back.

I will do everything in my power to win back the senate from the hellish grips of these manical twisted democrat senators that have sunk so low beyond the depths of their usual every day depravity and desperation as to accuse President Bush of such darkness.

Again, thank you for giving us the tools to fight and win this war against democrat leaders who will do anything to take over our country. They drew first blood in their attack against the good character and integrity of George W. Bush. Don't Tread on GOP

Well, naturally I agree. I've always thought the President- whoever he is- is supposed to be "our guy in Washington." And he properly belongs at such things as the wtc disaster.

You aren't alone at all- I've mentioned in other posts the white-hot anger of some radio show callers regarding this, and other issues as well.

The Left is taking a dangerous ( for them! ) road here, because most Americans have a reservoir of good will toward "their President"- they want to see him succeed.
And they don't much like harping & carping & sniping by blatant partisans.

and FYI, I'm holding forth from my "contingency PC"- which I use when my wife's on the "better" 486 in the kitchen.

I assembled this thing from old parts starting in January, and it's fought all of the way.
I began with an IBM 'opal' motherboard- 66 mHtz CPU, and 4 mb of RAM.... upgraded to 16, the max the board can hold without SIMM stackers.

The floppies were salvaged from a 386 used as a doorstop, the hard drive is a 210 mb Conner from a junk IBM, the modem's a USR 33.6k sportster. OS's have been DOS 6.22, Win 3.1, and finally Win 95, upgraded to 95a over the web.

And the keyboard sticks, the track ball is gritty, and the dang thing is slow.... but it works more or less like the other one.
and that's why there may be weird typos- it's hard to go back & correct easily!
