    Something to think about...

    "...Breitweiser gave a statement before the joint House-Senate investigation into intelligence lapses; it may have changed the course of history.

    In a concise, straightforward manner, she laid out the facts far more effectively than had any senator or representative on the panel. She asked how, for example, the CIA could fail to locate hijackers Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid al-Midhar, who had entered the United States despite being on a terrorist watch list, when one was listed in the San Diego phone book and both roomed with an undercover FBI informant. The day after her presentation, the White House -- once firmly against an independent commission -- reversed itself and endorsed the idea. And it was the 9/11 commission that would later find no operational ties between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida, one of the key reasons Bush gave for invading Iraq."

    Having a family member killed in the attacks on 9-11 certainly gives a person the right to ask questions. It does not make that person an expert on anything related to 9-11.

    She is entitled to her opinion, but her opinion carries no more weight that anyone else's. The loss of her family member on 9-11 entitles her to go to the head of the line to ask questions and she has a right to demand answers and action. That's all. The fact that she is disillusioned with Pres. Bush is proof of nothing other than either she is dissatisfied with the answers she has received so far or perhaps it is evidence that grief can cloud one's judgement.
