There was a time when past administrations showed some semblance of deference and courtesy to a present Oval Office occupant, especially in statements to foreign media on matters of national security. Clinton, Gore and Carter regrettably have brought the curtain down on this judicious doctrine, with substantial undermining consequences for the Nation. I would remind Gore that Sadam Hussein's son-in-law enjoyed a brief vocal defection before, upon being coaxed back into Iraq, he was promptly executed. Point being, many of the very same regimes at which Gore blows his sanctimonious prattle villifying the United States would not show Gore a great deal of tolerance as a returning mouthy ex-official to one of same. But, Gore being the same clueless clod he's always been, any such advices are a waste of time. Blow hard, global warming wind bag. Blow hard.

RM -- Off subject, but as to your blogroll invite below, I'd appreciate a look at my site. You're on mine. Haven't been active since not getting any hits, but say "go" and I'll crank it up. Thanks for the opportunity.

RM -- I tend to agree with you as an attorney on two grounds. First, as you point out, there is a question of just what Moussaoui knew about the 9/11 plan and what information he could have provided to the Feds to prevent it. Second, he appeared to put forward that he knew and did way more than the evidence showed in his little run at martyrdom. A judge cannot allow a conviction and sentence on a crime when the elements of same have not been met, even if the defendant is voluntarily willing to go the plea bargain route. So, a close one as you note, but from the outside looking in, it looks right.

Ah, when empty-headed liberals walk right into it. It never ceases to amaze. It's one thing to take statements from various sources, edit them out of context, shred them, mutilate them, to end up with a big bowl of nutcase granola. It's quite another to crunch solid numbers to trump up statistics that suit your fancy -- but honest and careful calculation of numeric invariables seldom lies in the end. Great job, RM. And nice blog.
