I was watching the end of the Today show before going to work at the newspaper bureau office.

I’d already seen the video of the first burning hole in the World Trade Center when I looked away from the TV for just a second. My wife yelled ‘LOOK!’ and I just saw the next gout of smoke and flame from the other side of the towers. NBC was kind enough to replay what caused it.

If you have to look at a picture, go Google one.

Fast forward to yesterday, around 1:30 p.m.  The disconnect between 2001 and the scene of a bunch of Congressmen trying to show their street creds on the ‘War on Terror’ before a four-star and a Bush diplomatic hack started repeating what was probably said several decades earlier in Whitehall and Parliament about the same piece of real estate . . . .

I don’t know.

that Congressmen and Senators should shut the fuck up before an official presents a report to Congress.

 It’s 1:07 p.m. Eastern time and Petraeus and Crocker haven’t gotten one word out of their mouths despite a scheduled 12:30 p.m. start time.
