  •  Agreed, you can't 'look the other way' anymore... (none)
    ...not after Iran-Contra demonstrated that the GOP and their lackeys in the Pentagon and the CIA are willing to secretly sell arms to a hostile regime to fund a clandestine war that Congress had decided to end by cutting off funding, and then they tried to cover it up by lying to Congress about it.

    Now we're supposed to believe 9/11 was just a lucky coincidence for them that allowed them to advance their agenda. But these guys have shown they make their own luck.

    If the Republicans stay in power much longer, An Army of One isn't going to be just a slogan.

    •  Exactly (none)
      right on point
      •  Coincidence Theory: (none)
        5 NORAD Drills on the day of 9-11 at the same time.

        Atta's passport found unsinged at the WTC.

        John O'Neil not told about hijacker surveillance or Able Danger.

        General Lambert at SOCOM stopping Able Danger from informing the FBI about Atta because Atta is mistakenly seen as a "US Person".

        Moussouia's computer is not looked because of FISA hangups

        FBI told to back off Bin Ladens by White House

        Richard Clarke demoted in Feb. 2001

        Predator Drone, which pinpointed Bin Laden, not allowed to fly after Feb. 2001

        Cheney put in charge of Counter-terror Report and NORAD response structure in May 2001

        Clinton and Clarke never told of Atta by neo-con generals appointed by Cheney

        There are about a hundred more "co-incidences" just as unlikely.

        Boy, that guy Atta really was one lucky Terrorist.

        I mean, what are the odds of so many coincidences, most of which by themselves would have prevented 9-11, never mind if the dots had been connected.

        I propose that Cheney, former Defense Secretary in charge of lots of right-wing generals who would follow his orders even under Clinton, was really running a secret government in the Pentagon and at the FBI and knew during the 2000 election all about Atta and the Gang.

        Look at Iran Contra's secret government!  These bastards know how to run one, only this time it was even more secret!

        No wonder Cheney looked at all the other Republican candidates for Vice President and then--surprise--PICKED HIMSELF!
