Never Again – John Ashcroft

I have just finished reading the book by former Governor of Missouri, former United States Senator from Missouri and most recently former United States Attorney General John Ashcroft.

For those of you that do not remember why we are defending ourselves in this war on terror. This book describes the terrorist attack that hit our country on 9/11/2001 and all the terrorist activity following the attack on our homeland soil.

It discusses the need for the USA Patriot Act that was signed into law in October of 2001. It discusses the infamous 9/11 Commission and the behind the scenes posturing of the Commission members.

The bottom line is that our country is unaware of what a Great patriot and public servant we had serving our country for four years as our Attorney General. John Ashcroft is a man that I had a lot of respect for before but after reading his book a walk away with a more profound respect and admiration for the man.

Read his account of the activities of him and his staff of the morning of September 11, 2001, it will cause you to understand the grit of the man. When you read of his account of the carrying out of the death sentence of Timothy McVeigh, you see the personal side of the man. It is well worth the read.

Let’s us “Be Prepared” and vow Never Again.
