I refrained from posting on the anniversary yesterday, mostly because I am one of those who believes the Busheviki are lying, and withholding the truth about the events of that day; and I didn't want imputations of tinfoil haberdashery (mine's fringed with x-mas-tree tinsel) associated with my postings.
I did listen to Amy Goodman's debate between skeptics and the orthodoxicals, and it seemed to me that the skeptics came off better; especially when they claimed that the orthos wouldn't or couldn't address the issues, but had always to deflect examination of the controversial evidence into realms of ideology.
It is my firm and considered belief that, faced with the threat of 4 years of humiliation at the hands of late-night comedians, and the total failure of policy and imagination within the regime, and scorn and increasing irrelevance among the people, Cheney (whose brief in the regime after all, was INTELLIGENCE [fucking HELLO?]) opted to let the attacks proceed, hoping the results wouldn't be too disastrous (which they weren't, really: more Murkins died in a single day at the Battle of Antietam than were killed by Osama's boys).
So, I was happy to discover (from Bob Sheerer's site, www.truthdig.com) THIS site. I hope it discomfits the whole and utter fuck outta the complacent, the brain-dead, and/or the cowardswho cannot face the possibility that, yes, the Chimp and his minions, lickspittles, satraps and toadies COULD do something like this.
They could; and imho they did.
