Aparently I was slow on the uptake on this article as it's at the number 2 spot of most emailed article on Yahoo, and was posted about 21 hours ago.

Here's the sentence that put a smile on my face:
Rove, whose gaping maw recently vomited forth that Democrats didn't care about 9/11, is atypically silent.
Here's an Arab saying, also posted in the article, that is fitting:
But as the Arab saying goes, arrogance diminishes wisdom.
Incidentially, if you are a little fuzzy on the history of Nine Eleven, there is at least one link you can examine that condenses the lengthy, but well written, Commission Report (and is probably not something Readers Digest will be doing any time soon). Slice:
On August 6, 2001, the CIA submitted a Presidential Daily Brief to Bush entitled “Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US.” This was the organizations 36th PDB item so far dealing with Bin Laden or al Qaeda. The 9/11 report states that Bush felt the PDB was “historical” but that’s about it. If you haven’t read this PDB before, I suggest you do so. It is presented in the 9/11 report on page 279 in the pdf version.
Just wondering, if W hadn't stolen the presidency in Y2K, would there had been an attack on Nine Eleven? There is no way to tell, but there could be a connection between W getting into office and the activation of the terrorist cells to execute the plan.
