  •  9/11 was the perfect brand-name (4.00)
    ...it was, as PNAC speculated about in the mid 90s, the perfect "Pearl Harbor" to sell their already crafted plan(s).

    9/11 was manna from heaven for the PNACers, and the perfect political vehicle to fold re-election, and selling the PNAC strategy to the American public.

    It was the tripwire to sell the GWOT and fold/conflate Iraq (which was a minor player at best in any serious approach to the fighting global terrorism) with it.

    cheers,

    Mitch Gore

    Nobody will change America for you, you have to work to make it happen
