Bush Testifying Wouldn't Be Nearly As Unprecedented As 9/11 Occurring On His Watch

So far, Bush has lamely tried to spin his participation in Congressional investigations of 9/11 as "unprecedented", in the sense of sharing information between branches.

To that, I would only ask, "Mr. Bush, hasn't the world changed since 9/11?"

What is more unprecedented, Congress investigating failures of the executive branch, and demanding full access to information, or several hijacked planes crashing into buildings and killing several thousand Americans?

These times are unprecedented, and, if we the people have our way, they are going to become even more so, at least in terms of transparency and accountability.

Because, no matter the adjective Bush comes up with - unprecedented, extraordinary, etc. - it will pale in comparison to the shock and events of 9/11.
