    Oh The Humanity!!!

    I started my summer reading with this book, and to be honest it was very difficult to get past the anger and frustration each chapter brings, I remember thinking to myself on that terrible day, being perplexed about what we witness here, this book answered the surreal story unfolding in front of us. I have since research photos and film of the actions in the PEOC of that day, and to the one, each of these people in the ear of Dick (Dark lord of the Sith) Cheney, are all political operatives, campaign advisors, etc.,.), all but Condi Rice (who as being National Security Advisor before and during 9-11 attacks, should have been fired first thing for not preventing or at least warning us of these attacks)! During these hours in which our country is under attack, should there have been generals, military advisors and such advising Dick? as it points out in this book The Five Unanswered Questions About 9/11. They all were trying to find a way to spin the incompetence and treachery on part of the Bush administration for political gain as Americas were fighting for their lives in DC NY, and in the skies of Pennsylvania!
