WHO FLEW WHERE, AND WHEN DID THEY FLY THERE?....Spinsanity takes the press to task today for their handling of the story about members of the bin Laden family being allowed to fly out of the United States while other air traffic was locked down after 9/11.

Did they fly out of the U.S. during that period? Or just within the U.S.? Was it 140 family members or some other number? And did the FBI have a chance to question them before they left the country, or didn't they?

Fine. I think the press should accurately report this stuff too. But surely the bigger issue here is that, like so many other mysteries surrounding 9/11, these questions could be quickly and precisely answered at any time by the Bush administration. Why haven't they been?
