Given this logic, I suppose Saxby Chambliss believes that Americans who are morally opposed to civil rights for all Americans would be allowed to discriminate against minorities with such acts as such re-segregating lunch counters and schools?

Excerpt: "We have not been able to corroborate some of the more sensational threat reporting, such as that from a -- service in 1998 saying that Bin Laden wanted to hijack a U.S. aircraft to gain the release of "Blind Sheikh" Omar Abdel Rahman and other U.S.-held extremists.

Life's a crap shoot! As the blogsphere begins the guessing game, I thought I'd ask OEN readers to weigh in with their best guess.

Whitehouse presented the perfect flowchart for Congress to begin the issuance of Senate subpoenas for WH and DoJ officials. His questioning and pictorial display of the chaotic management of the Justice Dept under Gonzales was groundbreaking and the most revealing evidence yet of how politicized our legal system has become. It depicts exactly who in the WH and DoJ were authorized to communicate with each other.
