Charleston Gazette: Terror warnings ignored

Some excerpts from the editorial:

On Nov. 18, more than half of the House of Representatives — 246 members — signed a letter to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, demanding that he let Able Danger agents testify before congressional hearings. Washington is awaiting Rumsfeld’s response....

Two West Virginia members — Republican Shelley Moore Capito and Democrat Nick Rahall — were among signers.

Americans need to know whether both of these terror attacks could have been prevented — and they need to know who blocked the advance tips. We hope all West Virginia members of Congress exert pressure to flush this information into the daylight.

Yes that means you, Senators Byrd and Rockefeller, too.
