Do you ever read your own links? Were did it say he was a target of al Qaeda? There were w whole bunch of loony-lefties who hated Ashcroft and maybe that was the threat.
And why weren't other Bush officials given the same warning?!? It seems like you are grasping at straws.

Ashcroft Flying High
Fishing rod in hand, Attorney General John Ashcroft left on a weekend trip to Missouri Thursday afternoon aboard a chartered government jet, reports CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart.
In response to inquiries from CBS News over why Ashcroft was traveling exclusively by leased jet aircraft instead of commercial airlines, the Justice Department cited what it called a "threat assessment" by the FBI, and said Ashcroft has been advised to travel only by private jet for the remainder of his term.
"There was a threat assessment and there are guidelines. He is acting under the guidelines," an FBI spokesman said. Neither the FBI nor the Justice Department, however, would identify what the threat was, when it was detected or who made it.
A senior official at the CIA said he was unaware of specific threats against any Cabinet member, and Ashcroft himself, in a speech in California, seemed unsure of the nature of the threat.

Your Rightwing Corporate Propagandist Masters have you confused.
The most important point in that article was Ashcroft and all other Attorney Generals before him always flew commercial airlines and FBI warned him not to a couple of months before September 11, 2001.
Ah, but you know WHY the FBI warned him, don't you?!? Was it the al Qaeda threat or was it the threat from some loony-lefties? What is funny is that lefties always seem to know things no one else does.
Do you know what the Tuscon, Aurora, Sandy Hill and Nay Yard shooters had in common? They were all loony-lefties!

Ah, what was the purpose of the "cabin doors" on airliners? Why do passenger planes with less than fifteen passengers have cabin doors back then and still don't?
Why sis Ricky Nelson and everyone in the back of his plane die, but the pilots did not?!?
What I think is funny that people who have near zero knowledge of aviation seem to think they are experts in the field!

The DC-3 was designed to carry 24 passengers and therefore they have cabin doors. Sooooo, the doors are strong enough to stop smoke but not strong enough to stop and intruder. So, why did the pilots survive and the seven people in the back die?

Dec 31, 1985:
Rick Nelson dies in a plane crash
Nelson continued to tour frequently, however, and it was on one such tour that he boarded a chartered DC-3 in Guntersville, Alabama, bound for a New Year's Eve appearance in Dallas. Shortly before reaching Dallas, however, the cabin of Nelson's plane apparently filled with smoke due to a fire of undetermined origin. While the two pilots of the plane would survive their attempted emergency landing in a field outside De Kalb, Texas, all seven passengers on board were killed, including the first pop star to cross over from the Nielsen charts to the Billboard chats, Rick Nelson.

That should be "BV" for Boeing Vertol. Yes, Boeing makes helicopters. They also had the prototype YUH-61 which competed for the YUH-60 (Blackhawk) for the new Army utility helicopter way back in the late 1960s.

There are three civilian models of the Chinook helicopter. The first was the BV-114 which became the CH-47A. Then the BV-234 which became the CH-47B/C and the current model is the BV-414 which is the CH-47D and subsequent models.
The only model to be certified by our FAA is the BV-234.

Other than DoD schools, can you name one Federal elementary, middle, or high school? Where in the Tenth Amendment does it give the Federal government the right to interfere with state run schools?
Likewise, can you name me one accomplishment of the Department of Energy besides the production of nuclear weapons?
Likewise, can you name one job creased by the Department of Labor?
The 10th amendment does not prohibit handing out money with attached strings. Schools can simply say they don't want it. that's not a violation of the 10th Amendment.

Also Rouge is totally ignorant of the contributions of DoE to increasing efficiency of fuel cells and batteries. Thise are only two examples. There are so many more I could spend the day listing their accomplishments. I recall when I was at ND the then new chemistry building was right next to the DoE building. There was some amazing work done their by physicists and other scientists. Rouge is simply ignorant.

Do you have any idea what a Field Artillery battery is? It consists of SIX cannons/guns and is normally commanded by a CAPTAIN.
Now, what does a "Field Artillery" unit have to do with "Air Defense"? You do know there is a big difference between a Field Artillery unit and an Air Defense Artillery unit, don't you? NO YOU DON"T, you idiot!!!
And that is just one point I picked out that screams FRAUD!!!

Warning: Hating Monsanto Impedes Global Economic Growth

Monsanto (NYSE: MON ) attracts quite a bit of criticism for its transgenic crops and seeds, more commonly referred to as Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs. The agricultural pioneer has introduced several engineered products aimed at reducing the amount of pesticides, herbicides, and time required during the planting season. In fact, corn and cotton crops that contain genes to produce toxins created from a naturally occurring soil bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis, have saved farmers $57 billion in pesticide costs from 1996 to 2011.

Yet despite mountains of scientific and economic evidence pointing to the benefits of transgenic crops, many people in the United States and Europe are vehemently opposed to their use and consumption. Public pressure has even led to the creation of state and national mandates, whether they are pending or already passed as law. That is a luxury when you're surrounded by food 24/7. Sadly, this popular and misguided view of agricultural biotechnology compromises the assimilation of genetically modified foods in African countries. It influences international trade and humanitarian aid, thereby stunting economic growth for the world's poorest people. More worrisome: it costs lives.
