    When it was really Clinton’s and Obama’s fault.


    Normally, one prepares for what is likely, rather than for something the top experts say cannot happen. Bush, jr sent the names of most of the hijackers to airport security, and they were stopped and manually searched and it was determined they had absolutely no weapons, so they could not possibly hijack an aeroplane.


    I see a similarity with Pearl Harbor, where the White House warned them two weeks in advance that a Japanese attack was imminent, so, since the trial of Billy Mitchell had proven that aeroplanes could not seriously damage a US warship, the commanders at Pearl Harbor had all the Army Air Force pilots building defence-works against an amphibious assault, which is what all the experts said they SHOULD have been doing.


    While Maureen Dowd & Co. say Bush, jr should have known they would hijack planes without using any weapons (except what they found on the planes) and then use the hijacked planes for a suicide attack, I can’t see how he could possibly have foreseen something that had never been done before and which the best experts ‘knew’ was impossible.


    (Of course, AFTER 9/11/’01, Bush, jr punished Iraq for something done mostly by Saudi shebabs, which might not have been the most effective response.)

    "It was those cowards George H W bush and Tricky Dick cheney who didn’t smack down Saddam right after we won Desert Storm when he used chemical weapons…

    George H W Bush was criticized by many for not removing Sadam after liberating Kuwait. My understanding is that he was warned that going into Iraq could destabilize the country and turn it into a quagmire we wouldn’t be able to leave. I think history will judge the decision to not invade as prudent.

    Forget what.. that the collapse of both towers were an engineering failure? The damage of landing two planes on / in them could.. have been contained within a few floors had they been properly engineered.

    …That the criminal nincompoop who allowed this to happen still walks free in his gated spider hole in Texas.

    Never forget that your votes are needed for So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, The X Factor, and the new season of Honey Boo Boo is coming soon. There’s your circus, call now for your delivery of bread. For $2 more, you get cheese.
    The cartoon reminds us that those who fail to learn history, and from history, are doomed. I know there’s more to it than that, but it applies.

    I think Omnius, like me, saw industrial smokestacks at first, though I realized before scrolling down that it was the towers.
    I could be wrong, often am.

    @Tigger

    Osama with more Bullets in the mid 1980’s, Russia would have killed Osama and September 11 never would have occurred."
    that is the lateral thinking of a liberal. With your line of thinking maybe i can say the towers would have fell with a Russian Nuke and not a plane.

    MIchael: I’m sure you’re also aware that Mitchell laid out exactly how JAPAN would attack the U.S. at Pearl (though he didn’t count the ships anchored) IN 1927!!


    Our history is littered with “intelligence failures”, usually a lack of intelligence to see what is hidden in plain sight.


    It shouldn’t be lost that bin Laden’s “big thing” was simply the basing of U.S. military forces in Saudi Arabia. The fact that he was a religious nut, like so many on ALL sides in our “war on terror”, is yet another example of ignoring what’s hidden in plain sight. (Just as the Syrian civil war is largely to kick out the Alawites, AND the Christians they’ve long defended!!)

    Arguing with a denier is like trying to wrestle with a pig: You get all dirty, and the pig enjoys it!
