We face an enemy that will use explosive devices in order to shake our will

On Claude Allen’s criminal activity (theft through fraud, or some such term, not actually shoplifting, as many lazy media outlets are terming it), Scottie McClellan had this to say: “If it is true, no one would be more shocked and more outraged than the president.” And Bush himself: “When I heard the story last night I was shocked.” Let’s all say it together, shall we: No one could have anticipated...
