There was supposed to be a mutual agreement between the two presidential candidates to pretend to put politics aside on the 7th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, by not running any negative ads.
John McCain is, if anything consistent in his ability to go back on his word. The independent group, Factcheck.org, which has been equally rough on both candidate's distortions and lies, reported that McCain broke that agreement by airing a negative ad in Colorado.
This shouldn't be surprising. The GOP has done nothing but exploit the tragedy of 9/11 for political gains in the 7 years which have followed.
