Of Mice & Men

"Tell about how it's gonna be," begs Lennie

"The creation of a quagmire is intentional. The creation of more terrorists via torture is intentional -- after all, you can't fight a war without an ever-replenishing supply of enemies to kill. What looks like incompetence and poor planning to the untrained eye is actually brilliant strategizing." -Professor Pan

The next logical question would be what the actual plan is. In that respect I have my own ideas that I will share with you later, but, anyone who still believes we are 'liberating' Afghanistan & Iraq, should either turn off their TV game shows for a night or simply euthanize themselves for the public good. Preferable the later.

In fairness to the Jesus Freaks For Bush Crowd that will vote for anything breathing that says they are against abortion,( while allowing innocent {living} people to be blown to bits,poisoned or imprisoned) and still has the opinion that Bush is actually ....a Christian , I ask you: Where are his fruits?
and when is "collateral damage" too much?

In a rush -slam -bam -thank --you- ma'am
post 911 theatre -that would make the cast of 'Deep Throat' blush-this is your official guide to the 'Coincidence theory of 911' or 'How it all began.'

1.That intelligence agencies, politicians and terrorists have conducted criminal business together is well established, but BCCI and Iran/Contra were a long time ago, so there’s no need to rehash all that.
2.That Jonathan Bush’s Riggs Bank has been found guilty of laundering terrorist funds and fined a record setting $25 million is embarrassing, surely, but to draw sinister conclusions is foolish.3.
That Marvin Bush 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.
3.That George Bush found success as a businessman only after the investment of Osama’s brother Salem and Osama’s brother-in-law and al Qaeda financier Khalid bin Mahfouz is just a one-in-a-million fluke.
4.That Osama bin Laden is known to have been an asset of US foreign policy in no way implies he still is.
5.That al Qaeda was active in Kosovo on the same side as NATO merely demonstrates that nothing is black and white.
6.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 to receive training in the United States, are merely sour grapes because he was fired for making such wild accusations.
7. That so many in the Bush White House had expressed the need for a "new Pearl Harbor" before their militarist ambitions could be fulfilled means nothing more than being in the right place at the right time.
8.That in May of 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, circumventing the established infrastructure and ignoring the recommendations of the Hart-Rudman report, merely shows the VP to be a “can do” sort of guy.
9.That the standing order for shooting down 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, is simply poor planning and unfortunate timing. Fortunately the error has been corrected, since the order was reversed shortly after 9/11.
10.That Dave Frasca of the FBI’s Radical Fundamentalist Unit received a promotion after quashing multiple, urgent requests for investigations into al Qaeda assets training at flight schools in the summer of 2001 does appear odd, but I’m sure there must have been a good reason for it.
11.That over the summer of 2001 Washington received many urgent, senior-level warnings from foreign intelligence agencies of impending terror attacks using hijacked aircraft and did nothing, demonstrates the pressing need for a new Intelligence Czar.
12.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 need for attention.
13.That George Bush had plans to invade Afghanistan on his desk before 9/11 demonstrates only the value of being prepared.
14.The suggestion that securing a pipeline across Afghanistan figured into the White House’s calculations is as ludicrous as the assertion that oil played a part in determining war in Iraq.
15. That Afghanistan is once again the world’s principal heroin producer is an unfortunate reality, but to claim the CIA is still actively involved in the narcotics trade is to presume bad faith on the part of the agency.
16.Mahmood Ahmed, chief of Pakistan’s ISI, must not have authorized an al Qaeda payment of $100,000 to Mohammed Atta days before the attacks, and was not meeting with senior Washington officials over the week of 9/11, because I didn’t read anything about it in the official report.
17.George HW Bush and Dick Cheney spent the evening of September 10 in the Oval Office, it’s true, but they were just old colleagues catching up.
18.That FEMA arrived in New York on Sept 10 to prepare for a scheduled biowarfare drill is a lucky twist of fate.
19.Newsweek’s 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.
20.That Mohamed Atta attended the International Officer's School at Maxwell Air Force Base, that Abdulaziz Alomari attended Brooks Air Force Base Aerospace Medical School, that Saeed Alghamdi attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey merely shows it’s a small world, after all.
21.That Mohammed 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.
22.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 one of those things.
23.That Hilliard’s plane had made 30-round trips to Venezuela with the same passengers who always paid cash, that the plane had been supplied by a pair of drug smugglers who had also outfitted CIA drug runner Barry Seal, and that 9/11 commissioner Richard ben-Veniste had been Seal’s attorney before Seal’s murder, shows nothing but the lengths to which conspiracists will go to draw sinister conclusions.
24.Reports of insider trading on 9/11 are false, because the SEC investigated and found only respectable investors who will remain nameless involved, and no terrorists, so any profit-taking was merely coincidental.
25.That Hani Hanjour, the pilot of Flight 77, was 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 that was virtually empty and had been hardened to withstand a terrorist attack, merely demonstrates that people can do almost anything once they set their minds to it.
26.That Mohammed Atta left a uniform, a will, his driver's license and a video "how to fly planes" in his rental car at the airport means he had other things on his mind.
27.The very mention of Israelis with links to military-intelligence having been arrested on Sept 11 videotaping and celebrating the attacks, and of a warning of impending attacks delivered to the Israeli company Odigo two hours before the first plane hit, is the vilest kind of anti-Semitism and should not be dignified with a response.
28.That the stories were also reported in the Israeli media is a sad display of self-hatred among certain elements of the Jewish Left.
29.That multiple military wargames and simulations were underway the morning of 9/11 – one simulating the crash of a plane into a building; another, a life-fly simulation of multiple hijackings – and took many interceptors away from the eastern seaboard and confused field commanders as to which was a real hijacked aircraft and which was a hoax, was a tragic coincidence, but no less a coincidence.
30.That the National Military Command Center ops director asked a newly-qualified substitute to stand his watch at 8:30 am on Sept. 11 is nothing more than bad timing.
31.That the black boxes were either never found or were unrecoverable was a first for these particular boxes, but there's a first time for everything.
32.That a recording made Sept 11 of air traffic controllers’ detailing the events of the day, 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 just one of those things.
33.That the FBI knew precisely which Florida flight schools to descend upon hours after the attacks should make every American safer to know their federal agents are on the ball.
34.To insinuate evil motive from the mercy flights of bin Laden family members and Saudi royals after 9/11 shows the sickness of the conspiratorial mindset.
35.Le Figaro’s report in October 2001, known to have originated with French intelligence, that two CIA agents met Osama bin Laden in a Dubai hospital in July 2001, proves again the perfidy of the French.
36.That the 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 masterminded 9/11.
37. That the White House went on Cipro September 11 shows the foresightedness of America’s emergency response.
38.That the anthrax was mailed to perceived liberal media and the Democratic leadership demonstrates only the perversity of the terrorist psyche.
39.That the anthrax attacks appeared to silence opponents of the Patriot Act only shows that appearances can be deceiving.
40.That the Ames-strain anthrax was found to have originated at Fort Detrick, and was beyond the capability of all but a few labs to refine, underscores the importance of allowing the investigation to continue without the distraction of absurd conspiracy theories.
41.Sibel Edmonds is an attention-seeking nutcase. And since John Ashcroft has gagged her and classified her public testimony, we should speak no more of her. But most of all, remember: there are no secrets, governments would never accept civilian casualties for geostrategic gain, and conspiracies are for the weak-minded and gullible.

**many more coincidences to follow.Stay tuned. THE JESUS CAMP MOVIE!! OUT IN NOV 2006 A MUST SEE!

Hey AJ, keep on blogging!

It's sad that two guys and a wedding cake and terminating a fetus is the only thing that gets these people to the polls and NOT the war where thousands upon thousands have suffered. I don't get it, maybe I'm missing something?

9/11, *sigh* I would be repeating what is already said.

John & Kathleen,
Perhaps when the troops come home and have children sans appendages courtesy of DU poisoning, they might wake up and smell the coffee.
But thanx for the comments and stopping by.

Great job putting this together AJ. I realize it's hard work - and we know what our President has said about hard work.

Even though none of those coincidences you've listed actually mean anything during this Moron Terror, I'm going to add a link to your blog on mine and call attention to this post.

Hey, anybody seen Osama Bin Laden there in your neck of woods? We've looked everywhere here and just can't seem to find him. Just checking since I hear he's wanted dead or alive.

Hey Angry Buddist,

Hope to have a lot more things on for you.

Hey. I just tried to reply to a comment Blogger e-mailed that was sent from you? Just wanted to check if you want it published. I'll check emails tomorrow for a response.

Excellent post.

It seems blatantly obvious that the Bush Cultists are smarter than their opponents give them credit for.

They're not stupid, incompetent, or deluded. They set their goals (PNAC) and got every single thing they wanted.

It doesn't matter if the public turns against the war. We have bases there that are not going to be dismantled -- ever.

Welcome to the Eternal Warfare State.

I agree, this war will never end. This radical right league, as Jeff Wells suggests, is as cunning as it is ruthless.
I am honored for your visit.
