Mr. Bush, We're on to You

If you find this inspiring, please practice it and pass the word on.
Mr. Bush,

Clearly, Ari Fliesher's comments on May 15 were an attempt at damage control, and a pathetic one at that. To maintain that the threat of high jackings OF ANY KIND did not require security warnings is ridiculous.

Mr. Bush, those of us who are not frightened by ugly truths realize that your administration is quite capable of considering three thousand Americans "collateral damage". That your adminstration could very well consider these deaths necessary in the service of a greater battle to preserve "our way of life", namely the way of life that you and your elite cadre enjoy.

While we will insist on a congressional investigation, we will not wait for one. The inconsistencies in the official story are ample and readily documented by many uncontroversial sources. While we will insist on a congressional investigation, we will not assume that congress will consider the public's interests over the interests of the system over which you preside. Even as we insist on a congressional investigation, we will launch a thousand indepedent "non partisan" investigations of our own. We will share this information with whoever will listen. We will not fear telling the people things that they are "not ready to hear".

We will neither place our faith in a congressional investigation nor in reports from the mainstream press. How could we expect an honest report about a diabolical plan to launch a war for oil from a news show that is paid for by commercial spots from Texaco, Exxon and others.

We are a free and sovereign people only if we choose to exercise our sovereignty. A rumbling began on September 12, Mr. Bush. Many of us have long suspected a worst case scenario that involves (at the very least) complicity from your administration. And many of us have gathered evidence to support these suspicions. This rumble, Mr. Bush, will turn into an earthquake. Your days are numbered. The oil industry's days our numbered. We will hold fast to the supposedly far fetched belief that another world is possible. Your place in history will be a disgraceful one.

Sincerely,

The Unwashed Rabble

I dont believe Bush is bright enough or evil enough to engineer a reorientation of US hegemony by killing 3000 of its own civilians, which has deeply wounded the nation, and cost $50bn financially
However,

Bush, the FBi and CIA are culpably negligent for trying to cover up the facts they knew in July/August
1/ there was an imminent attack from Bin Ladin.
2/ there were suspiciously large number of Arabs training for pilots licences, and several were not interested in learning to land.
3/ the WTC was a previous target almost 10 years ago, so was a likely next target.
4/ the threat would come from hijackers.

anyone with an IQ above 80, ie not the President, should have implemented a response to the obvious threat from all the intel.

- Increasing airline security, particularly internal flights. This was not done because of airline lobby groups who did not want to pay for, example, reinforced doors, armed guards, which could have prevented 911 or Bush/FBI/CIA negligence.
- Have fighter jets on standby, etc etc etc

lets not make the same mistake in 2004, and stop the corrupt Republican judges stealing the election, by giving the Democrats a landslide.

"President Bush, who is the head of state of Pakistan?" interviewer

"Urr, mmmm, General, um, I know hes a General, General"......

and this guys our unelected (because he received 557, 000 votes fewer in total than Al Gore) President.

Crashing planes known during Clinton admin 17.May.2002 14:51

Associated Press reports that a Sept 1999 White House report noted, "Suicide bomber(s) belonging to al-Qaida's Martyrdom Battalion could crash-land an aircraft packed with high explosives (C-4 and semtex) into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency, or the White House."

This counters the Bush claim that no one in the US govt had any conception of tieing the Pheonix memo (alarming the govt about possible hijackings by large groups of arab foreign nationals taking flight training) and its horrible outcome.


Al Queda, myth or fact? 17.May.2002 17:00

I believe Bin Laden is a double agent for the CIA/oil industry. I think he has been working for them all along. I am not sure the Taliban knows this, however. I think Al Queda is a myth, created by the CIA. Be honest, when was the first time you heard about them, after 9/11, right? We had all heard of Bin Laden, and the Taliban, but the first time we heard about Al Queda was after the 9/11 WTC attack. The truth is, there is no Al Queda at all. Just a handful of angry Islamic youth, a fake Islamic revolutionary, and a War Machine that needed a bad guy, or risk losing taxpayer funds. Where is the 2.3 trillion dollars the Pentagon stole from the American people? That's an awful lot of money to just disappear. I think Al Queda means "Americans are suckers" in Arabic. Oh, and then there's all this skullduggery with the Mossad. Suppose some Mossad agents, posing as Muslims, recruited and trained some unsuspecting Muslim youth for terror (all with the CIA and FBI blessing, of course). Then, the military industrial complex would be happy because they get their unlimited wars to fight and the oil industry is happy because they get their pipeline, And the extreme right is happy because they get to be fascists because that's what they've always wanted. The only people who aren't happy are the poor victims of all the violence. That's the Average Americans and the Average Afghans. Kind of sickening, right? And who has their claws on the largest nuclear arsenal in the world? That's right, the worst criminal cabal ever in history! The US military industrial complex.
