    does investigate this stuff, but he doesn't make a real effort to prove what he hypothesizes.

    We all know that the Laos operation became a heroin smuggling operation.  It's not really a matter of debate.

    We also know that the Contras were financed with cocaine money.  We know CIA planes and pilots were used in that effort.

    We all know that the mujahideen sold heroin.

    What I am doing is attempting to unravel the actual plot, not just make vague accusations.

    I'm concerned that a rogue domestic unit was responsible for 9/11, that they are heroin traffickers, and that at least some of them are retired US intelligence with a ton of experience in Front companies/charities, offshore banking, cargo airlines, foreign/national pilot training.

    I put out leads, my friend, but I need someone to look into those leads.

    •  rogue units (4.00)
      given that several members of the pentagon (ie. josh marshall's aborted tectonic story) were conspiring with foreign agents to stovepipe fake intelligence to get the iraq war going, and given PNAC's stated goals, it is getting harder and harder for me to discount that line of reasoning. which is totally fucking scary when you start to thinking about what's around the corner.

        but Secord was in Air Force black ops when Bush I was DCIA. All these guys have close ties to the Bush and Saud royal families. I don't know whether this is all true or not but the scary thing is in any other time in American history, with any other president in the White House, I would dismiss it out of hand. In this case the only gripe I've got is why everybody thinks it would have to be accidently lethal or a "Rogue" unit. I think the Bushes are perfectly capable of the whole thing and I don't think any of them, including Barbara and Laura, would lose a minute's sleep.

    •  he wrote - (4.00)
      a thoroughly documented book on it.
      I'm not sure what you think would constitute "trying to prove it" - as far as I can tell he's devoted his entire life to trying to "prove it".
      Don't get me wrong - I think it's wonderful that you've written this diary. I'm just saying that you are on the same path as several others, and I don't understand why all of this line of investigation is regarded as "tin foil" territory around here.

      In my view so much of 9/11 is either not, or poorly explained - the commision was a joke and for that matter - they didn't even want an investigation .  I mean, really , the biggest terrorist event in our nation's history and the Bush administration didn't want to investigate!  

      I'll will grant you - there's definitely some tinfoil out there.  But there's some very legit complaints to be looked into, and discussed.

      Thanks again Boo, keep up the good work...

      •  Has Ruppert (none)
        ever named names?

        He just points out that the certain CIA-affiliated people have been involved in drug smuggling, and he was tried to keep the inconsistencies of the official line from disappearing.

        But he is not selective, and he is prone to promoting any theory that comes along.

        And he won't give you a name of someone he thinks had the talent, motivation, and diabolicalness, to have actually participated.

        Believe me, THE WHOLE GOVERNMENT was not involved.  But reading Ruppert, you would get that impression.

          He names Cheney as being behind the entire thing.  "Crossing the Rubicon" has been out about a month.
