“On July 19 [2001], Attorney General John Ashcroft left on a trip to his home state of Missouri aboard a private jet. When asked by reporters why he didn’t use a commercial airliner, as was customary, the Justice Department cited what it called a ‘threat assessment’ by the FBI. The attorney general, they said, had been advised to travel only by private jet for the rest of his term.”
