It's a practice the Virginia State Police have blasted: racial profiling, or police stopping someone based on nothing but the color of their skin.
But this week in the race for governor, Republican Mark Earley proudly posted an endorsement AGAIN on his website -- one he actually picked up in June.

But the campaign of Mark Warner has produced quotes from Fotis this year, where he calls racial profiling "a very useful tool."

In an appearance on CNN in April, Fotis says: "I have to say, as a police officer ... if I had a male black walking around at two in the morning in an all-white area, I would have pulled him over, as I would have done the same thing in the black community if I had a male white walking around."
A spokesman for Fotis says he "was NOT talking about the color of their skin -- but how they relate to people in that area."
Then, on a Fox Special Report in June, on the issue of the death penalty: "It sounds devastating. But the fact is that they're committing the crimes. The minority community is committing many more crimes than the white community."

President Bush says he's making good on his promise to "smoke terrorists out of their holes."
He says investigators are gaining more information about the (ahl-KY-duh) al-Quaida terror network, and more arrests are likely.
And some encouraging news about a major airport--
Jennifer Miller has more now from Washington.

(( President Bush gives another signal that life is returning to normal with the announcement that Reagan National Airport is getting set to re-open with limited flights and sky marshals on every plane. Close to several national landmarks, the facility is the last airport to remain closed in the wake of the September 11th attacks.

In New York, rescue crews combing the debris have located more bodies. Yesterday 107 Congressmen toured the site and promised to help New York rebuild while Mayor Guililani made a rare appearance at the United Nations.

SOT: NY Mayor Rudy Guiliani

"The U.N. must hold accountable any country that supports or condones terrorism."
While they were condemning terrorism in New York, Secretary Of State Colin Powell made it clear that the hunt for terrorists is not about revenge.

SOT: Sec. Of State Colin Powell

"What we really have to do is shut down terrorism, not just find a single place to take revenge out on, or a group of people to take revenge out on."
On the investigation front, the translation of a document found in a suspects car at Dulles airport gives chilling insight into the mind of a terrorist. Wild and rambling, the letter calls for the hijacker to clear his heart and forget worldly life. For the families of those who perished in the attacks, it will be a long time before their hearts are clear.

The justices have refused to re-consider Nichols' case, despite the F-B-I's late release of important documents to defense attorneys.
Last spring, the F-B-I revealed it had failed to turn over thousands of pages of materials to attorneys for Nichols and Timothy McVeigh.
Nichols is serving a life sentence for his role in the bombing.
