Tom Ridge Comes Clean

August 20, 2009

Former Bush Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge is now saying that he felt pressured by others in the Bush Administration to raise the nation’s terrorism threat level on the eve on the 2004 Presidential Election.  The only thing I find surprising about this is that anybody could be surprised by it.  The worst kept secret in America during the seven years four months between 9/11 and the end of George W. Bush’s Presidency, was that the Bush Administration used fear of another terrorist attack as a political tool….

But good for Ridge for finally speaking out.
