Bush did it? 08.Jun.2002 21:29

Tom tduncan@pacifier.com

One question that keeps haunting me--

If Bush knew nothing about this in advance, as he says, (the FBI screwed up and lost all that important information in a bureaucratic swamp), then how did they figure out within a few hours that Bin Laden did it from the caves in Pakistan?

Either they knew something or they didn't. They can't have it both ways

What democrat? 09.Jun.2002 01:44

Gephart is all for a Homeland Security Office. Most democrats are firmly behind a war built on a lie.

Don't think for a second that you can be complacent about democratic support for an end to a military industrial police state.

very good question Tom. . .very good question

here we are being told that it was all a bureaucratic mess up, that bureaucracy is just that way. . .

but suddenly, within hours, all the information was collected and the culprit named and within days the whole story 'figured out' (fabricated?)

if the bureaucracy is so clumsy, how do we know they have it right now? there are huge holes in the story they tell us

there could be dozens of clues floating around this bureaucratic swamp right now that point out a different story

whether a person wants to presuppose incompetence, or complicity, one point that is not being clearly made, is that this so called incompetence is still going on...it did not end on Sept 11th

the FBI released a list of 19 alleged hijackers... 7 at least have been shown to be wrong. while 12 out of 19 is a great batting average for baseball, it does not stand up here... 7 out of 19 are wrong, but the FBI has done nothing to address this discrepancy, and have released no new list.

if 7 are wrong, other names could be as well. in fact, the whole list could be wrong. where is the evidence that these are indeed the people?

where is airport video of them boarding the planes, and what were the names used to board the planes? where are those names on the flight lists?

where are the arrests of the people who sent the anthrax to push the patriot act through congress?

where are the charges leveled against at least a few of the well more than 1000 arab people (supposedly arab) detained after Sept 11th? . . .surely 9 months is enough to decide at least most of them are innocent and let them go. . .have they been let go?. . .

a list of such examples of so called incompetence can fill pages ad nauseum. . .the bureaucratic swamp at work

however, a look at history indicates that the FBI has been quite good and effective at its Cointelpro efforts, skillfully destroying key individuals, organizations, unions, and so on for decades.

the bureaucratic swamp and its incompetence appears to be selective. . .hmmm

Jack Straw

HA!! democrats.com should be named dontblamethedemocrats.com instead. The article in question attempts to absolve the Clinton admin of participation in the bi-partisan planning of this war, which began openly with military "exercises" in Central Asia in '97, just as it was being spelled out in Brzezinsky's The Grand Chessboard which has been reviewed by Michael Ruppert. And Joe Lieberman was the person who first suggested the Homeland Security Dep't,he's behind the Bush plan 100%.

democrats.com is not directly related to the democratic party. They claim to be democrats who are trying to shift the party back to the left, er, the center-capitalist-welfare left anyway.

They may not be radicals, or even truly progressive from the standpoint of most indymedia readers, myself included, but they are certainly left of the party leadership.

But I agree with Jack Straw, they should be directly attacking Democrats like Leiberman and Clinton. By defending these assholes they do wind up being apologists for the party. I think it's a tactical decision they have made and I think it's a crappy one.

It's one thing to defend Clinton from attack-dogs in the Monica mess, or Gore from the "inventing the internet" or "social security lockbox" or "firefight in Vietnam" slanders, it's quite another to grant these Democratic right-wing bullshit artists impunity over welfare deform or FISA, or the '96 Telco act, or the DMCA, or . . .
