Ashcroft Avoided Airliners Before 9/11

Thanks to the Blue Meme for calling attention to a CBS News report from July 26, 2001. In a news story entitled Ashcroft Flying High CBS reported:

In response to inquiries from CBS News over why Ashcroft was traveling exclusively by leased jet aircraft instead of commercial airlines, the Justice Department cited what it called a "threat assessment" by the FBI, and said Ashcroft has been advised to travel only by private jet for the remainder of his term.
Ashcroft, however, does not remember a terrorist briefing by George Tenet complete with Power Point presentation on July 17 that gave advance warning of an attack like 9/11.

This is yet another sign that the official report of the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash. 9/11 widows are now blasting the administration over these ommissions from the 9/11 report.
