"We know that there were several warnings that were given prior to the events of September 11th. People were calling in to the CIA and to the FBI, and they were giving information that was critical. There was adequate warning. But instead of requesting that Congress investigate what went wrong and why, we had President Bush place a phone call to Majority Leader Senator Tom Daschle, asking him not to investigate.

My question is, what do they have to hide? The fact is that the father sits on the board of the Carlyle (ph) Group, which is one of the highest-level defense contractors in the country. And so we get this presidency of questionable legitimacy requesting a nearly unprecedented amount of money to go into a defense budget for defense spending that will directly benefit his father! (Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D), Georgia, 12 April 2002)
