REMEMBER THOSE "9-11" HEARINGS ?

Now we learn the FAA received fairly specific warnings...and pretty much blew them off,because they didn't want to disturb the customers. Published reports say there were 52 such warnings prior to September,2001.

For some reason or other, the 9-11 Commission did not share this information with the electorate prior to the elections.(Wonder why ?)


Another thing the Commission did not share was the possible "sweetheart deal" -during the Clinton administration - between the airlines and Vice President Al Gore.


A commission on airline security,chaired by VP Gore,came up with numerous recommendations-all of which would have cost the airlines big money.They bitched-and VP Gore made sure the proposals were watered down. (Some commission members complained,but their comments received little media attention.)



The airlines subsequently made large contributions to Mr. Gore's failed presidential campaign.



You don't suppose there could have been a ....(Gasp !) connection,do you ?
