  •  Another tinfoil moment... (none)
    ... I particularly remember Rummy's press conference after the pentagon attack, and how mad he seemed to be.  One line struck me from that moment, his warning to those who have certain infromation to be quiet, and saying that 9/11 is an example of what happens when those people don't exercise their discretion.

    At the time, I figured that someone with classified information about Al Qaeda somehow let it be known that we were watching them or blew his cover or something, and that allowed us to lose their trail.  But given all the evidence that's now coming out that we must have known something before 9/11, I don't think that's any longer the case.

    I hate to say it, but I wonder if Rummy's statement was a veiled threat to potential whistleblowers, a la if you don't go along with us, it'll be your personal 9/11.

    The more a read about it, the more I think something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
