Shirley Bianchi, 1999-2007 District Two San Luis Obispo County Supervisor, California (Retired)

Statement of Shirley Bianchi
The night of 9/11 I was appalled to hear Wolf Blitzer state unequivocally that it was Iraq that was behind the attack.  Further, I could tell by the look on George Bush's face in the school room that he was waiting for something else to happen. .. Also the fact that the legal memos that have just surfaced were quite lengthy indicating they were not done in haste; that the Patriot Act I was ready to go days after 9/11; [and] reading the Patriot Act II and the Military Commissions Act, and reading all of W's [Bush's] Executive Orders, indicated to me that this was a well planned plot.
