The folks at The Nation have some nerve asking these questions:

1) Who in the Justice Dept. and its FBI unit knew about the memos from the field raising questions about Arabs training in flight schools?

2) Why, if Attorney General John Ashcroft stopped flying on commercial aircraft over the summer, did Justice not issue sterner warnings to airlines and the public about threats to commercial aviation?

3) Why did Vice-President Richard Cheney ask congressional leaders not to investigate the events leading up to September 11?

4) Why did Administration officials keep repeating the mantra "We had no information about specific threats" when some of them were aware of at least nonspecific threats of hijackings?

5) Why did the Administration decide not to tell the public of the information it knew until the story leaked to the press?
