The Non-Story of the Year

Within over 15,000 pages of security briefings, CBS's David Martin located one reference to a "possible hijacking," that as one FBI agent said was more of a CYA statement than any real intelligence lead. Now we have to listen to the Tom Daschle express outrage as though he thinks this is significant and not a good time to attack the Republican President who is enjoying tons of popularity in a Congressional election year.


How stupid are Americans? Plenty or maybe its just that most of us find it unbelievable that 9/11 could have happened to us. If that's the case than we are in for some rough days ahead--not just in dealing with tragedies that are sure to occur but also in dealing with our wounded pride--that we don't know it all and we're not all powerful.
