OT - new development re Able Danger: WND article, 9/15/05:

"An employee of the Defense Department says he was ordered to destroy documents identifying Mohamed Atta as a terrorist two years before the 2001 attacks on the U.S., Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa., announced today."

"According to the congressman, the employee is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week and will name the person who ordered the documents destroyed."

[Bolding added] - and I wonder who that could be.

My bet is most of them we living with their Auntie not their parents.

I would not have rebuilt the examples you noted at the taxpayers' expense. If individuals/private enterprise want to take on that risk, by all means.

Decoding Bush's speech....Due to his inability to say the truth, he decided to encode all the truth in his speech.

"We need to cut the budget(children, those poor old folks, and Iraq veterans) to help fund the rebuild of the gulf coast(my oil rigs offshore and my refineries). I affirm that I will not increase the tax (of course not, my friends at Halbriton and Cheney will kill me.) Michael Brown has been doing a heck of a job. (Thanks Mikey for taking the role of escape goat for me, I will remember your proof of loyalty, let's get him on board of Halbriton). I take full responsibility for the slooowww response from the federal government.(meaning don't blame me, I am just a politician, man!!)"
