The Mantra of the Bush Years

After sleeping on the job in August and September 2001 the Bush Administration has been on the job poking the embers of 9/11 with the sole purpose of driving up his poll numbers. So this portion of a story about the alleged London 'liquid-bomb plotters' sums up the last five years as we come to the anniversary:

While officials and experts familiar with the case say the investigation points to a serious and determined group of plotters, they add that questions about the immediacy and difficulty of the suspected bombing plot cast doubt on the accuracy of some of the public statements made at the time.

“In retrospect,’’ said Michael A. Sheehan, the former deputy commissioner of counterterrorism in the New York Police Department, “there may have been too much hyperventilating going on.”

If it wasn't for 'hyperventilating' FoxNews would be a test-pattern.
