Bush was the owner of the 9/11 tragedy? The only way he "owns" it is that he happened to be in charge when it happened. He's done a great job tracking the remaining scumbags down since.
He "allowed" it to happen? Next thing we know, youll be accusing him of planning it.
But wait! Two of the planes flew out of Boston, MASS. that day! That's Kerry''s state isn't it? Kerry must have been in on it! I mean, we can get real wacko here if we just abandon logic...

Now Now Beavis & B-Head, I've been "zapped" ....how?
Surely you favor a fully supported investigation into 9/11, don't you?
Don't you question why it was stonewalled by the Bush Administration until it hit a point of critical mass, and they had to concede to it?
You do remember them then trying to derail it with such appointments as Henry "Covert War" Kissinger, don't you?
You have kept on top of the commission now having to SUBPOENA the administration for testimony on 9/11, haven't you?
And from the 9/11 Families:
1. As Commander-in-Chief on the morning of 9/11, why didn’t you return immediately to Washington, D.C. or the National Military Command Center once you became aware that America was under attack? At specifically what time did you become aware that America was under attack? Who informed you of this fact?
2. On the morning of 9/11, who was in charge of our country while you were away from the National Military Command Center? Were you informed or consulted about all decisions made in your absence?
3. What defensive action did you personally order to protect our nation during the crisis on September 11th? What time were these orders given, and to whom? What orders were carried out? What was the result of such orders? Were any such orders not carried out?
4. In your opinion, why was our nation so utterly unprepared for an attack on our own soil?
Our human intelligence capabilities had been severely compromised during the Clinton administration by people such as Toricelli and Kerry. Toricelli spearheaded the effort to prohibit gathering intelligence from anyone that didn't look like and act like a Boy Scout. Kerry voted to gut the budget of military and intelligence agencies.
Look it up. I can point you to several excellent, non-biased references, if you'd like...i.e., copies of the Congressional Record.
5. U.S. Navy Captain Deborah Loewer, the Director of the White House Situation Room, informed you of the first airliner hitting Tower One of the World Trade Center before you entered the Emma E. Booker Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida. Please explain the reason why you decided to continue with the scheduled classroom visit, fifteen minutes after learning the first hijacked airliner had hit the World Trade Center.
6. Is it normal procedure for the Director of the White House Situation Room to travel with you? If so, please cite any prior examples of when this occurred. If not normal procedure, please explain the circumstances that led to the Director of the White House Situation Room being asked to accompany you to Florida during the week of September 11th.
7. What plan of action caused you to remain seated after Andrew Card informed you that a second airliner had hit the second tower of the World Trade Center and America was clearly under attack? Approximately how long did you remain in the classroom after Card’s message?
8. At what time were you made aware that other planes were hijacked in addition to Flight 11 and Flight 175? Who notified you? What was your course of action as Commander-in-Chief of the United States?
This should answer the questions regarding the actions of the president during and immediately after the attack on 9/11.
Evasive and security measures and activities following a strike on our countries' soil would seem random and unplanned by the very nature of the circumstances.
In other words, they would not follow an established flight plan.
9. Beginning with the transition period between the Clinton administration and your own, and ending on 9/11/01, specifically what information (either verbal or written) about terrorists, possible attacks and targets, did you receive from any source?
This would include briefings or communications from
• Out-going Clinton officials
• CIA, FBI, NSA, DoD and other intelligence agencies
• Foreign intelligence, governments, dignitaries or envoys
• National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice
• Richard Clarke, former counterterrorism czar
10. Specifically, what did you learn from the August 6, 2001, PDB about the terrorist threat that was facing our nation? Did you request any follow-up action to take place? Did you request any further report be developed and/or prepared?
11. As Commander-in-Chief, from May 1, 2001 until September 11, 2001, did you receive any information from any intelligence agency official or agent that UBL was planning to attack this nation on its own soil using airplanes as weapons, targeting New York City landmarks during the week of September 11, 2001 or on the actual day of September 11, 2001?
12. What defensive measures did you take in response to pre-9/11 warnings from eleven nations about a terrorist attack, many of which cited an attack in the continental United States? Did you prepare any directives in response to these actions? If so, with what results?
13. As Commander-in-Chief from May 1, 2001 until September 11, 2001, did you or any agent of the United States government carry out any negotiations or talks with UBL, an agent of UBL, or al-Qaeda? During that same period, did you or any agent of the United States government carry out any negotiations or talks with any foreign government, its agents, or officials regarding UBL? If so, what resulted?
14. Your schedule for September 11, 2001 was in the public domain since September 7, 2001. The Emma E. Booker School is only five miles from the Bradenton Airport, so you, and therefore the children in the classroom, might have been a target for the terrorists on 9/11. What was the intention of the Secret Service in allowing you to remain in the Emma E. Booker Elementary School, even though they were aware America was under attack?
It would seem that if everyone knew where the president was going to be at that exact moment, then he would have made an easy target. 9/11 took years to plan, not 4 days.
Your premise is made absurd by it's own contradiction.
15. Please explain why you remained at the Sarasota, Florida, Elementary School for a press conference after you had finished listening to the children read, when as a terrorist target, your presence potentially jeopardized the lives of the children?
16. What was the purpose of the several stops of Air Force One on September 11th? Was Air Force One at any time during the day of September 11th a target of the terrorists? Was Air Force One’s code ever breached on September 11th?
17. Was there a reason for Air Force One lifting off without a military escort, even after ample time had elapsed to allow military jets to arrive?
18. What prompted your refusal to release the information regarding foreign sponsorship of the terrorists, as illustrated in the inaccessible 28 redacted pages in the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry Report? What actions have you personally taken since 9/11 to thwart foreign sponsorship of terrorism?
19. Who approved the flight of the bin Laden family out of the United States when all commercial flights were grounded, when there was time for only minimal questioning by the FBI, and especially, when two of those same individuals had links to WAMY, a charity suspected of funding terrorism? Why were bin Laden family members granted that special privilege—a privilege not available to American families whose loved ones were killed on 9/11?
20. Please explain why no one in any level of our government has yet been held accountable for the countless failures leading up to and on 9/11?
Clinton has already been removed from office. I suppose he could be tried for gross misconduct in not grabbing bin Laden when offered, gutting intel and military, etc., but the fact is we are just sick and tired of his dissembling.
21. Please comment on the fact that UBL’s profile on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives poster does not include the 9/11 attacks. To your knowledge, when was the last time any agent of our government had contact with UBL? If prior to 9/11, specifically what was the date of that contact and what was the context of said meeting.
If we spent the money to update the posters, Bush would be accused of wasting money on the obvious. Also, I think everyone is aware of bin Laden's role in 9/11 by now.
22. Do you continue to maintain that Saddam Hussein was linked to al Qaeda? What proof do you have of any connection between al-Qaeda and the Hussein regime?
Easy. Two examples:
1. There was an al-Qaeda training camp in NE Iraq that specialized in handling ricin.
2. Shortly before we went into Iraq, a major al-Qaeda operative had surgery to have his leg amputated. His leg had been injured by American bombings in Afghanistan. The surgery was performed in a Baghdad hospital.
23. Which individuals, governments, agencies, institutions, or groups may have benefited from the attacks of 9/11? Please state specifically how you think they have benefited.
What kind of question is this?
Support your "team" Jr. Republicans, just don't be GOP first, American second.

I don't see why everyone is slamming clinton for not capturing bin laden in the 90s. It's Ronald Regan who trained him and called him a "freedom fighter".
