    WOW!!

    I had heard that there was a private jet that was allowed to fly around the country in the days after and pick up Osama's saudi realitves who where here for various reasons, but i didnt realize there were more that were allowed to leave. I heard that the FBI wanted to detain and interrorgate all these people, but good ol' Bush wouldnt let that happen.

    What's really going on? Or do i want to know....

    From the article: "The panel has indicated that it has yet to find any evidence that the F.B.I. checked the manifests of departing flights against its terror watch list."

    The FBI has had plenty of time to do that check, even if *possible* terrorists flew away. SFAIK, manifests stay on record for a long time.

    Me, I'd suggest the panel ask, "What did you find out, even later on?"
