Ashcroft knew that he and his people had thoroughly screwed up on the warnings leading up to September 11. He has been desperately trying to hide that fact ever since. Not only did his agenda put Al Qaida concerns on the back burner thereby allowing the tragedy to happen, but none of the infringements on our constitutional rights he has requested of Congress will make the next attack easier to detect and to stop. Justice already had all the tools it needed to interdict 9/11. It simply failed to do good mundane police work. If the existing laws had been properly enforced these guys would have been in custody instead of in cockpits. This is why this administration must be sent home. Their agenda has ignored pre-existing needs and those weaknesses have caught with them and the rest of us.
