    just like Katrina.

    They were scared their plans for massive massive profits for their whackjob billionaire base wouldn't work out as planned.

    911 is the same intentional bullshit as Katrina. They ignored their jobs because they preferred the outcome of doing nothing because it would allow them and their corporate criminal friends to make massive amounts of money.

    That's all this is about.

    They let 911 happen so they could have their war in Iraq.

    That's what Cheney did. No amount of covering up can hide that anymore.

    •  They are too incompetent to let anything happen (1+ / 0-)

      It should be obvious by now that if the Bush administration were involved with 9/11, they would have screwed it up royally. As it were, their only involvement was doing a poor job of protecting our national defense.
      Al Qaeda pulled off 9/11 by themselves, and they did knowing full well they were taking advantage of a new administration. To this day, Al Qaeda continues to manipulate this administration to further their own goals. Osama bin Laden certainly hasn't been held back one bit by the clowns in the White House; Quite the opposite... they have moved his agenda vastly forward beyond OBL's wildest dreams.
      I simply do not understand why people insist on implying that the Bush administration was involved in the planning/execution of 9/11 when it is much more damaging to face the reality that the administration didn't have what it took to stop Al Qaeda from killing 3000+ innocent civilians on their watch.

        Al Qaeda did not pull it off by themselves. Bush and Cheney knew it was coming and let it happen so they could have their War in Iraq.

        You want to sound politic, but all you end up doing is lying.

        Throw your TV at your TV.

      •  They want you to think that way. (0+ / 0-)

        They DELIBERATELY want people to think they are  incompetent, it is part of their 'cover' - If people think you're stupid, they don't hold you to the same standards as if they think you are smart - that's how they have gotten away with the biggest crime in American history. Don't be a fool and accept the incompetent bait.

        •  As if (0+ / 0-)

          They are incompetent; It is not an act. You are merely blowing them up into mythical proportions, unrealistically granting them competence they don't really have. Bush is a dope. Rove is a dope. Cheney is a dope.

          •  Bush is a dope (0+ / 0-)

            But his puppet masters are not. You do not get into this position of power by stupidity.

            •  You DO get into positions of power (0+ / 0-)

              If the system is broken and corrupt, of course a dope can be in a positon of power. History shows plenty of declining empires that had poor leadership due to systematic failures within those empires.
              There are no insidious puppet masters. There's just a bunch of inept 'elites' that benefit from a broken down system that rewards sons of privilege over people with actual competence and merit. Face facts: The best and brightest in America do not get into politics as a career.
              What bugs me about all this conspiracy nuttiness is that it goes against something that is very important in the political realm: 'Know Thy Enemy'. If you blow up your enemy to mythically evil proportions, as if they are some sort of antagonist in a bad Hollywood movie, you are not accurately assessing your enemy's merits. If you don't accurately assess your opponents, you can't put up a very good fight against them, as you will have misconstrued their strengths and weaknesses.
              Bush, Cheney, and Rove are all clowns. Theirs is a failed administration that is unpopular among the American people. See them for what they are, not for what your conspiratorial imagination thinks them to be.

              •  Agree to disagree (0+ / 0-)

                The Bush Administration planned and carried out 911 in order to start a major war in the middle east to take over the oil. Just wait ... Syria and Iran are going to get caught up in this clusterfuck and that is exactly what the bush team wants to happen.

                •  The reason so many people don't 'get' it (0+ / 0-)

                  is because their paradigm won't allow them too.

                  ...with your conspiratorial machinations. Al Qaeda planned and perpetuated 9/11, and the Bush administration lacked the competence to stop them. You are displaying about as much logic as the people that think Saddam Hussein was part of 9/11's planning. Thing is, conspiracy theorists like yourself tend to get locked into their views more from their own personalities than from the facts at hand. I could spend all day pointing out to you the illogical assumptions you are making, but it is pointless as you will stick to your conspiracy theory no matter what.
                  Again, I re-iterate that if you are opposed to the Bush administration, you need to see them for what they really are, NOT for what your conspiratorial imagination thinks them to be.
