Required Reading From 9/11 Widow Kristen Breitweiser

@ 06:51 PM (110 months, 28 days ago)

Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband was killed on 9/11, has written a wonderful article for Common, called The King's Red Herring--definitely required reading for today.

In a very articulate (and most importantly, FACTUAL way) she takes the Bush Crime Team to task for using 9/11 as an excuse for domestic wiretapping, when in fact the government had received plenty of intelligence on the hijackers.

I know the neo-con, Rethug Bush apologists are salivating at the mouth, just waiting for the opportunity to call Kristen Breitweiser a radical liberal who's aiding and abbeding the enemy. 

Not so fast, though!  You should know that she voted for George W. Bush in the 2000 Presidential election.  But after 9/11, Kristen turned her grief into action, advocating for the creation of the 9/11 Commission, and said that George W. Bush "thrawted our attempts at every turn."

‘He Can Make Us Safe’

"President Bush thwarted our attempts at every turn"
