- Dear Friends of FTW,
- I am working on a two-part series focusing on two ongoing
federal grand juries that reveal deep conflicts of interest with John Ashcroft
and the Vice President's energy task force. The President is refusing to
release information to the public - in spite of a court order - that may

list. Please keep a copy of this list handy. If you would like to sponsor
a mirrored-site, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
