February 26, today in history (from Wikipedia)
1815 – "Napoleon Bonaparte escapes from Elba." In retrospect, he probably wish he hadn't.
1987 – "Iran-Contra affair: The Tower Commission rebukes President Ronald Reagan for not controlling his national security staff." Wait, wrongdoing in Presdiential Administrations used to be INVESTIGATED???
1993 – "World Trade Center bombing: In New York City, a truck bomb parked below the North Tower of the World Trade Center explodes, killing six and injuring over a thousand." The intent of the failed bombing was for the one tower to crash into the other. It was actually more ambitious than the 9/11 attacks. It's a good thing Bill Clinton didn't overreact.
