3. I also saw Russert reflect on that time in history and express regret.
He indicated that the media was afraid to question due to the 'post 911 climate' etc. He said that he regretted not being tougher on the administration and suggested a lesson be learned.

I can't think of one voice in the main stream media that asked tough questions prior to the war? Perhaps someone will refresh my memory?
