39. in the months after 9/11 this was a big story - well among progressives
I'm just surprised at the surpise people here are showing. I guess it wasn't as well known as I thought, or even better, maybe there are a lot of former republicans here who are only just now learning about the evil that is the Bush Administration.

I didn't mean to offend. sorry :hi:
