That George Bush's brother Marvin sat on the board
of the Kuwaiti-owned company which provided electronic
security to the World Trade Centre, Dulles Airport and United
Airlines means nothing more than you must admit those Bush boys
have done "alright" for themselves.
That Jonathan Bush’sRiggs
Bank has been found guilty of laundering terrorist funds
and fined a US-record $25 million must embarrass his nephew
George, but it's still no justification for leaping to paranoid conclusions.
That George Bush found success as a businessman only
after the investment of Osama’s brother Salem and reputed al Qaeda
financier Khalid bin Mahfouz is just 'one of those things' - one
of those crazy things.
That Osama bin Laden is known to have been an asset of US
foreign policy in no way implies he
That al Qaeda was active in the Balkan conflict,
fighting on the same side as the US as recently as 1999,
while the US
protected its cells, is merely one of history's little aberrations.
The claims of Michael
Springman, State Department veteran of the Jeddah visa
bureau, that the CIA ran the office and issued
visas to al Qaeda members so they could receive training in
the United States, sound like the sour grapes of someone who was
fired for making such wild accusations.
That one of George
Bush's first acts as President, in January 2001, was to end the two-year
deployment of attack submarines which were positioned within striking distance
of al Qaeda's Afghanistan camps, even as the group's guilt for the Cole
bombing was established, proves that a transition from one administration
to the next is never an easy task.
That the company PTECH,
founded by a Saudi financier placed on America’s
Terrorist Watch List in October 2001, had access to the
FAA’s entire computer system for two years before the 9/11 attack,
means he must not have been such a threat after all.
That whistleblower Indira
Singh was told to keep her mouth shut and forget what she learned
when she took her concerns about PTECH to her employers and federal authorities,
suggests she lacked the big picture. And that the Chief Auditor
for JP Morgan Chase told Singh repeatedly, as she answered questions
about who supplied her with what information, that "that
person should be killed," suggests he should take an anger
That on May
8, 2001, Dick Cheney took upon himself the job of co-ordinating
a response to domestic terror attacks even as he was crafting the
administration’s energy policy which bore implications
for America's military, circumventing the established infrastructure
and ignoring the recommendations of the Hart-Rudman report, merely shows
the VP to be someone who finds it hard to delegate.
That the standing order which covered the shooting
down of hijacked aircraft was altered on June 1, 2001,
taking discretion away from field commanders and placing it solely
in the hands of the Secretary of Defense [Donald Rumsfeld], is
simply poor planning and unfortunate timing. Fortunately the error has been
corrected, as the order was rescinded shortly after 9/11.
Frasca of the FBI’s Radical Fundamentalist Unit received
a promotionafter quashing multiple, urgent requests for
investigations into al Qaeda assets training at flight schools in the summer
of 2001 does appear on the surface odd, but undoubtedly there's
a good reason for it, quite possibly classified.
That FBI informant Randy
Glass, working an undercover sting, was told
by Pakistani intelligence operatives that the World Trade Center towers
were coming down, and that his repeated
warnings which continued until weeks before the attacks, including the
mention of planes used as weapons, were ignored by federal authorities,
is simply one of the many "What Ifs" of that tragic day.
That over the summer of 2001 Washington received many
senior-level warnings from foreign intelligence agencies and
governments - including those of Germany, France, Great Britain,
Russia, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Afghanistan and others - of impending
terror attacks using hijacked aircraft and did nothing, demonstrates
the pressing need for a new Intelligence Czar.
That former lead counsel for the House David
Schippers says he’d taken to John Ashcroft’s office
specific warnings he’d learned from FBI agents in New York of an impending
attack – even naming the proposed dates, names of the hijackers
and the targets – and that the investigations had been stymied and
the agents threatened, proves nothing but David Schipper’s pathetic
need for attention.
Nicolsonreceived two warnings from contacts in the intelligence
community and one from a North African head of state, which included
specific site, date and source of the attacks, and passed the information
to the Defense Department and the National Security Council to
evidently no effect, clearly amounts to nothing, since virtually nobody
has ever heard of him.
That in the months prior to September 11,
self-described US intelligence operative Delmart
Vreelandsought, from a Toronto jail cell,
to get US and Canadian authorities to heed his warning of his accidental
discovery of impending catastrophic attacks is worthless, since
Vreeland was a dubious
character, notwithstanding the fact that many of his claims have since
That FBI Special Investigator Robert
Wright claims that agents assigned to intelligence operations actually
protect terrorists from investigation and prosecution, that the FBI shut
down his probe into terrorist training camps, and that he was removed from
a money-laundering case that had a direct link to terrorism, sounds like
yet more sour
grapes from a disgruntled employee.
That Rep. Porter Goss met
with Ahmed the morning of September 11 in his capacity as Chairman
of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has no
bearing whatsoever upon his recent selection by the White House to head
the Central Intelligence Agency.
That Rep. Goss's congressional seat encompasses the
9/11 hijackers' Florida
base of operation, including their flight schools,
is precisely the kind of meaningless factoid a conspiracy theorist would
While it's true that George Bush Sr. and Dick Cheney
spent the evening of September 10 alone in the Oval Office; what's
wrong with old colleagues catching up? And even though George Bush
Sr. and Shafig bin Laden, Osama's brother, spent the morning of September
11 together at a board meeting of the Carlyle Group, doesn't mean
a hill of beans as the bin Ladens are a very big family.
arrived in New York on Sept 10 to prepare for a scheduled biowarfare
drill, and had a triage centre ready to go that was larger and
better equipped than the one that was lost in the collapse of WTC 7, was
a lucky twist of fate.
report that senior Pentagon officials cancelled flights on Sept
10 for the following day on account of security concerns is only
newsworthy because of what happened the following morning.
Col Steve Butler, Vice Chancellor for student affairs of the
Defense Language Institute during Alghamdi's terms, was
disciplined, removed from his post and threatened with court
martial when he wrote"Bush knew of the impending attacks
on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed
this war on terrorism. What is...contemptible is the President of the United
States not telling the American people what he knows for political gain,"
is the least that should have happened for such disrespect shown his Commander
Atta dressed like a Mafioso, had a stripper girlfriend,
smuggled drugs, was already a licensed pilot when he entered
the US, enjoyed pork chops, drank to excess and did cocaine,
was closer to Europeans than Arabs in Florida, and included the names of
defence contractors on his email list, proves how dangerous the radical
fundamentalist Muslim can be.
That 43 lbs of heroin was found on board
the Lear Jet owned by Wally
Hilliard, the owner of Atta’s flight school,
just three weeks after Atta enrolled – the biggest
seizure ever in Central Florida – was just
bad luck. That Hilliard was not charged shows how specious
the claims for conspiracy truly are.
That Hani Hanjour, the pilot of Flight 77,
so incompetent he could not fly a Cessna in August,
but in September managed to fly a 767 at excessive speed into a
spiraling, 270-degree descent and a level impact of the first floor of the
Pentagon, on the only side of the building that was virtually empty
of people and had been hardened to withstand a terrorist attack, merely
demonstrates that people can do almost anything once they set their minds
of the flight data recorders were said to be recoverable even
though they were located in the tail sections, and that until 9/11,
no solid-state recorder in a catastrophic crash had been unrecoverable,
shows how there's a first time for everything.
That Mohammed Atta left a uniform, a will, a Koran,
his driver's license and a "how
to fly planes" video in his rental car at the airport
means he had other things on his mind.
The mention of Israelis with links to military-intelligence
on Sept 11 videotaping and celebrating the attacks,
Israeli espionage ring surveiling DEA and defense installations
and trailing the hijackers, and of a warning of impending
attacks delivered to the Israeli company Odigo two hours before the first
plane hit, does not deserve a response. That the stories also appeared
in publications such as Ha'aretz
is a sad display of self-hatred among certain elements of the Israeli media.
That a recording
made Sept 11 of air traffic controllers’ describing what
they had witnessed, was destroyed by an FAA official who crushed it in his
hand, cut the tape into little pieces and dropped them in different trash
cans around the building, is something no doubt that overzealous
official wishes he could undo.
That a former
flight school executive believes the hijackers were "double agents,"
and says about Atta and associates, "Early
on I gleaned that these guys had government protection. They were let into
this country for a specific purpose," and was visited
by the FBI just four hours after the attacks to intimidate him into silence,
proves he's an unreliable witness, for the simple reason there is no conspiracy.
Bush was on board an aircraft that removed flight school records
to Washington in the middle of the night on Sept 12th demonstrates
how seriously the governor takes the issue of national security.
Figaro’s report in October 2001, known to have originated
with French intelligence, that the CIA met Osama bin Laden in a Dubai hospital
in July 2001, proves again the perfidy of the French.
tape in which bin Laden claims responsibility for the attacks
was released by the State Department after having been found providentially
by US forces in Afghanistan, and depicts a fattened Osama
with a broader face and a flatter nose, proves Osama, and Osama
alone, masterminded 9/11.
That at the battle of Tora Bora, where bin Laden was
surrounded on three sides, Special Forces received no order to advance and
capture him but were forced to stand and watch as two
Russian-made helicopters flew into the area where bin Laden
was believed hiding, loaded up passengers and returned to Pakistan,
demonstrates how confusing the modern battlefield can be.
That upon returning to Fort Bragg from Tora Bora, the same
Special Operations troops who had been stood down from capturing bin Laden,
a unusual spree of murder/suicides, is nothing more than a series of
Reports that bin Laden is currently receiving periodic
dialysis treatment in a Pakistani medical hospital are simply too
incredible to be true.
That Republican guru Grover Norquist has
been found to have aided
financiers and supporters of Islamic terror to gain access to
the Bush White House, and is a founder of the Islamic Institute,
which the Treasury Department believes to be a source of funding
for al Qaeda, suggests Norquist is at worst, naive, and at best,
needs a wider circle of friends.
That the 9/11 commission's executive director and
"gatekeeper," Philip Zelikow, was so closely involved in the events
under investigation that he
testified before the the commission as part of the inquiry,
shows only an apparent conflict of interest.
That commission chair Thomas Kean is, like George
Bush, a Texas oil executive who had business dealings with reputed al
Qaeda financier Khalid bin Mafouz, suggests Texas is smaller than they
say it is.
That co-chair Lee Hamilton has a history as a Bush
family "fixer," including clearing Bush Sr of the claims
arising from the 1980 "October Surprise", is of no concern, since
only conspiracists believe there was such a thing as an October
That, when commenting on Edmond's case, Daniel
Ellsberg remarked that Ashcroft could go to prison for his part in a
cover-up, suggests Ellsberg is giving comfort to the terrorists, and could,
if he doesn't wise up, find himself declared an enemy
It has been known that governments
have permitted terrorist acts against their
own people, and have even themselves been perpetrators
in order to find strategic advantage, but this is The United States
we're talking about!
I could go on and on and on, but I trust you get the point
which is simply this:
1. there are no secrets,
2. an American government would never accept civilian casualties
for geostrategic gain, and
3. conspiracies are for the weak-minded and gullible.
