It is a pleasure to be back here in New York, where I was born. The last time I spoke here was a little more than a year ago. I was here to commission a ship named the USS Bulkeley, a ship named after a New Yorker, Admiral John Bulkeley, who left a big mark on the Navy during a career that spanned decades and included actions in combat in his PT boat in the Philippines during WWII that earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor. It was enormously fitting to commission a great warship named for a man whose life symbolized the resilience and resolve that the world has come to associate with this great city since September 11, 2001--and how appropriate that the com

FAULKNER: On September 29, The San Francisco Chronicle reported that investors had yet to collect more than $2.5 million in profits they made in trading options in the stock of United Airlines before the Sept 11 terrorist attacks. The uncollected money raises suspicions that the unidentified investors had advance knowledge of the attacks.
The Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating high levels of short sales and purchases of "put" options, on the stocks of United Airlines and American Airlines in the three business days before the attacks. Short sales and put options are bets that a stock will fall in price.

See Spot Run by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. How bewildering and disgusting the barrage of half-truths, propaganda, and outright lies emanating from the White House on the war on Iraq – which have gone unchallenged by our "independent" press. The level of argument being put forth by administration spokesmen borders on insulting. They jump from one unsubstantiated, outdated, or wildly speculative claim to another, parrying legitimate concerns about their lack of hard evidence with such sloganeering responses as, "The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." As Mike Matt put it, "What’s next? ‘See Spot run’?"

A Look Ahead The Attacks On September 11, four hijacked U.S. passenger airliners were crashed, killing almost 4,000 people. Two of the planes struck the two World Trade Center towers in New York City, and one plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in a rural area of Pennsylvania, though there was speculation that the hijackers intended to smash it into the White House or the Capitol building. Shortly thereafter, letters containing spores of anthrax were mailed to a variety of media and government offices, resulting in dozens of cases of the disease and several deaths. Authorities assumed that these events were linked.
