Three Years On

Well, almost. But tomorrow will be exactly three years since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Here is a short summary of what we have learned about the attacks and the US government's handling,- and use,- of them.

Those are things I have covered in a lesser of greater detail in this space, and will continue to do so. However, I think this is a powerful and concise summary. Here's what how author, Bernard Weiner, Co-Editor of The Crisis Papers, sees the utility of this article:
The Republican Party -- in a shameless , all-too-obvious attempt to manipulate the tragedy of 9/11 for partisan ends -- chose New York City for its nominating convention. Must have seemed like a great idea at the time. Their coming to Manhattan not only infuriates New Yorkers, who were badly played by Bush&Co. after the attacks, but enables the rest of us in the country to use Ground Zero as the backdrop for examining the gross failures and crimes of the Bush Administration since that tragic day in September 2001.

So, here is an update* of things we've learned during the three years since 9/11 -- documented mostly from government papers and respected journalistic accounts -- about the Administration that rules in our names. If you find this compendium useful, you might want to make this list available to your friends and colleagues, especially to those still uncertain which presidential candidate they will vote for ten weeks from now.

Well, Mr Weiner, I think you are right on the money,- I certainly do find this compendium useful, even though nothing in it is news to me. It is well-written and easy to read. Thank you for putting it together, and I am trying to get the word out through this post. I hope people read it and think it over very hard.
