Harriet Miers +Torture + 9/11 + Just Say No!
Forget about Harriet Miers stands on a woman's right to control her own body or the right of men, women, cats, dogs, and all other living creatures to fornicate with and pledge undying love for whomever they please. She's not going to reveal her thoughts on those topics anyway. But do ask her about the torture of prisoners of war/terrorists/people the Bush and his Bushies dislike, and do ask her about that August 6, 2001, briefing at the ranch in Crawford, which she reportedly arranged. The Smoking Gun carried it when released back in April 2004, and Editor and Publisher referenced it on October 4, 2005. As a reminder, the briefing was titled "Bin Laden Determined To Strike in U.S." History, Dr. Condi Rice called it in her testimony before the 9/11 commission. But presidents don't get briefed during their vacations on "history," especially the ahistorical Bushbucker. And history does not say the FBI has some 70 investigations underway because it has identified “patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks.” So Miers should be asked why she deemed this little memo important enough to interrupt bushwhacking but then, apparently, let it slide, as did the chief bushucker himself. Did they need time, date, and flight numbers? Did the Bush nod off and take his minders with him to his dreamland?
