After being warned that al-Qaeda was determined to attack US, Bush did nothing. Some Americans re-elected him. Who could do such a thing?
A few weeks ago I read a report analyzing the people who did, the modern Grand Old Party. Paul Burka at Texas Monthly, who I often disagree with, also read the report and has a good write-up on Dissecting the Elephant.
Howard Dean: "On the sixth anniversary of September 11, we honor those who were killed in those tragic attacks, the family and friends who still grieve their loss, and the survivors who continue to suffer.

We remain committed to fighting al Qaeda where they are and implementing policies that make our country safer and more secure."
