What I Remember

Well, this took some guts to make given the present political climate in France. I still recall the events that this was based on and what a friend who worked in the intelligence community said to me when it went down. "Those French, man," he said, "they don't f**k around." Brought back the usual throbbing memories of our own clear Tuesday in hell, and then I started to feel mad too. Everybody recall Condi and company saying they never expected someone to use planes as weapons? Boy, what total horseshit, huh? Onward.
