More “Give Him a Break”

Another e-mail:

Less than 24 hours after the attack took place, Tom Clancy wants

Senator John Edwards to explain the exact details of how he thinks the

US should respond to the 9/11 attack? That is crazy. We didn’t even

know for sure who committed the attacks. Shouldn’t the response

depend on the perpertrator? (If the attackers were Russian terrorists,

would we have invaded Russia? What if they were part of a US militia?)

Sure, Edwards is a little vague, but Bush’s speech was vague too. It

tooks weeks for the administration to outline specific steps. Unless

Edwards was doing something crazy on video that I can’t get from the

transcript (sucking him thumb, or picking his nose perhaps) his

comments seem pretty reasonable considering the event that had taken

place that morning.
