convention center not from Brownie [Michael Brown], who didn't know
himself, but from a wire story carried into the Oval Office by an aide
on Thursday, 24 hours after the victims had been pleading and crying for

story, 'No W.M.D. in Iraq.')"

does it feel? How does it feel to know that the man you elected to lead
us after we were attacked went ahead and put a guy in charge of FEMA

Horse shows. I really want to know -- and I ask you this in all
sincerity and with all due respect -- how do you feel about the utter
contempt Mr. Bush has shown for your safety?"

weaved together as an elaborate inside job, a claim that only forensics
can prove. http://www.legitgov.org/9_1_1_oddities.html
Day 1,461 And Counting --It's the fourth anniversary of September 11 --
and Osama bin Laden is still at large. By Michael Tomasky 08 Sep 2005
"...[E]ven the disaster Bush has created in Iraq takes a back seat to
one overwhelming fact: By the time night falls on September 11, Osama
bin Laden will have been at large for 1,461 days. America vanquished
world fascism in less time: We obtained Germany's surrender in 1,243
days, Japan's in 1,365. Even the third Punic War, in which Carthage was
burned to the ground and emptied of citizens who were taken en masse
into Roman slavery, lasted around 1,100 days (and troops needed a little
longer to get into position back in 149 B.C.)."

out of here. --MDR]
