    John Stossel. Good read.

    ".....
    The attacks on 9/11 were largely a failure of government. Our so-called "intelligence agencies" knew nothing about the plot. The Immigration and Naturalization Service, charged with keeping track of foreigners who overstay their visas, didn't pay attention to the 19 hijackers. And as Rep. Ron Paul points out, history did not begin on Sept. 11. Part of the failure was America's interventionist foreign policy, which needlessly made enemies.

    So government failed on 9/11, and yet the politicians' answer to failure is always the same: Give us more money and power. And we do. When will we learn?"

    Typical mis-information crap. The failure resulted under Bill Clinton when one of his appointees issued directives that agencies including the FBI and CIA could not share information.

    Anyone with a modicum of intellect who followed the events of 9/11 and the hearings after, knows this stuff.

    It should also not be forgotten that Clinton slashed the intelligence budget by almost a third. The administration also missed the signs before the Cole attack in Yemen. Thought there were signs an attack may take place this information was never passed on to the Navy and the captian.
    Worse yet, Reno ruled there could be no search of siezed lap tops for information, because it would be a violation of their rights.

    yeah, what do you think these Tee Pee Party dimwits want to do to the gov't agencies' budgets? They want to gut them to the bare minimum. ALL gov't agencies' budgets are on the chopping block.

    Clinton purposely did not want any US intelligence agency's to share info as he knew "stuff" from European sources,French Secret service and Interpol on possible actions against the United States.
