On your first comment you are not in USA why would he email you telling you not to vote for someone in the US election......
See his interview for 4corners he siad exactly that. Also they arent retesting Lance the positives they already had now they have the stories of the riders. The biggest thing needed to get rid of the drugs is to break the omerta. Spanish are still all for the omerta however as can be seen by all of them jumping to Lance's defense.
Yes it is worthwhile pursuing riders from the past to let the cheats know even if they get away with it now they wont forever, and I hope Lance gets jail time to keep those cheats thinking if I do cheat I might get thrown in jail. Also if it helps to clean out the dirty team managers, team doctors and management people (UCI) who are still in and around the sport in a very big way then yes it is more then worthwhile. Its not just about Lance. Infact I think half of all of team management should go. It kills me to see an unashamed doper such as Vino go into management.
Read rollers stuff about livestrong.

Watch this. Ashenden talks (AT) 46min in. The plasticisers test which was meant to help with blood transfusions he has said in articles works only if they took the transfusion in about the last 2 hours.
A bit unrelated to live strong but more great work from Ashenden.

I hope the UCI see jail time also (if that is even possible) for misusing their power.
In the absence of an actual test this was probably the best option available to administrators, but yes, as the pros joked it is like legalizing armed robbery provided less than $1000 is taken.
