Bush's 9/11 Ghouls

Just when it seems the Bush Administration couldn't possibly get any more crass, running an ad which exploits the 9/11 tragedy for re-election traction, along comes news of something worse.

Donald "the quacker" Rumsfeld, and undisclosed high-level FBI officials, stole evidence from the World Trade Center site to keep as momentos. Rumsfeld apparently keeps a shard of one of the airplanes that struck the tower on his desk to amuse vistors.

The Bush Administration has a long history of perfidy regarding 9/11: air quality lies and cover-ups, failure to deliver promised aid to New York City, failure to fund first responder equipment upgrades, slow-walking and starving the 9/11 Commission, trying to name Kissinger as head of said commission, trying to prevent investigation of any aspect of 9/11 that could hurt them politically, allowing the bin Laden family to be escorted out of the country rather than questioned. Add to this history the ghoulish revelation of 9/11 momento taking, and I would not be surprised to learn that Bush himself donated a charred skull from the towers site to the Skull and Bones temple.

Have these people no sense of propriety? Have they no shame? Write to secretary Rumsfeld and tell him where to put his shard.
