    They showed an investigation of chemical plants in general and their positions near population centers. While West, TX blew up, the real concern was and still is New Jersey and Delaware, where chemical tanks dot the landscape.

    For an administration that boasted too many times to count that it only cared about "Keeping America safe," it did not do so. The chemical plants were dangerous targets before 9/11 and remained, according to "Frontline," just as soft after.

      at the very least the Administration could have encouraged use of less toxic chemicals and gotten the stocks of anhydrous ammonia, chlorine, and hydrofloric acid vastly reduced, but oh, no.

      If the little f------rs had tossed a couple of their pressure cookers over the right chemical plant fence, they could have killed hundreds.

      Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
