    God's honest truth, the only way 9/11 happened was if people in the CIA and FBI were working with "bin Laden" whoever the fuck he was. It sucks to say that out loud, but nothing else makes sense.

    Look at the "after": we were on a glide path ot paying down debt and now we're mired in debt; WE'RE STILL IN FUCKING AFGHANISTAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!; we have a "refugee crisis" that's repopulating Europe into a third world San Francisco shit hole and we have a US Surveillance state that would have given Orwell nightmares.

    Crusader, do you remember "Wag the Dog"? Bill Clinton tried, and failed, but tried to take out this threat. He got hamstrung by a rabid weasel named Tom DeLay and his sidekick Dick Armey, aided by a blitzkreig of publicity. THEY minimized the Bin Laden threat into a joke in an effort to strengthen their party. And had the temerity to make a big deal out of Bubba's philandering even as everyone knew the married Newt was banging Callista regularly. DeLay even conducted guided tours to a cloakroom where Republican members could listen to inadmissable tapes of accusations against Clinton. I have always held the view that 911 is a result of this cabal ignoring people like O'Neill because it would be a distraction from the assault on Clinton and by extension the Democratic Party. Also, Clinton passed on his suspicion of OBL to Bush. (No, Bush was NOT involved in 911)

    Just as bad today or worse. Very proud of announcing they knew such and such terrorist that they never bothered to do anything about.
