    agent who was very close to finding the bomb maker who created underwear bombs, the printer cartridge bombs etc.   the 5 day delay gave him time to disappear with his family.  AP blew a sting, a very important one, based on the cover story, not the real story.  And yes, that could cost lives.  Unless you don't believe in bombs on planes.

    I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

      the origin of the AP controversy?

      Isn’t it odd that many Republicans who demanded a thorough investigation a year ago are now condemning the Justice Department for doing what they asked for?  - Dionne
      Re-read what the Republican members of Congress said last June.  They weren't just demanding an investigation.  They were building a case that it was the President's administration and the President himself who leaked the classified information.  They said it was done because there was favorable press coverage in it for the President which would enhance his image ahead of the election.

      There is no existence without doubt.
