    This isn`t anything new. It`s well known that Dick Cheney and other higher-up with strong ties to Halliburton/Blackwater/MIC were looking for ways to get involved in the middle-east. They get rich while our brave men and women in uniform get maimed and killed. The real tragedy is that no one in the Bush administration will be tried for war crimes.

    So let me get this straight. THIS is the news:
    - The CIA tried to hire two of the hijackers, but didn`t. Note that it makes no mention of the other 17, so we can assume they were off the radar?
    - The NSA tapped a couple of the hijackers` phones, and didn`t follow up on the information they got on it (the article makes no mention of how good the information was to begin with).
    - There may have been a connection between one of the hijackers and an FBI agent. This connection is unknown.
    - Several people lied to cover up their own incompetency.
    - These facts were known by a multitude of people, it just wasn`t officially published.

    Assuming any of this is true– and I`m not particularly convinced, though it`s certainly possible– this is hardly some sort of grand conspiracy. It seems more like government incompetence, mixed with a few people trying to cover their own asses.

    It`s not quite THAT simple, but it was a motivating factor. Oil was also a motivating factor. National security was also a motivating factor. The Project for a New American Century also goes into detail how they viewed the Soviet Union`s collapse as a unique opportunity to instill pro-Americanism around the world through military power. The idea was to crush any opposition before it got to a threatening level. The idea was that Saddam had the largest standing non-nuclear military in the middle east, and taking him out would send a strong message.

    Madest: Honestly man, you keep contradicting yourself with posts like this. In one post you state that Bush was a moron, and then you post this crap that alleges Bush was a `Mastermind`, Seriously ?

    One cannot be both a moron and a mastermind at the same time, it`s impossible, pick one theory and stick with it otherwise you yourself look moronic.

    Crakr: "...that alleges Bush was a mastermind".

    Really Crakr?

    "Don`t tell! I`ll get in trouble!"
    - George Walker Bush, 43rd President of the United States, Mastermind AND/OR any 3 year old.

    I`m pretty sure you and everyone else has said that same thing at some point in time. That proves nothing and make you look like a 3 year old yourself.

    i think hes saying mastermind in the context of someone that is evil (evil mastermind). someone can be a evil mastermind and a moron also. ive seen it. it goes hand in hand. but doesnt matter. it wasnt bush thats behind it, its the people who control bush that behind it. he just knew about it.

    mst3k: The sooner people like you realize there was no 9/11 conspiracy and that GW Bush is just a `Good `ol Boy` from Texas the better off you`ll be.

    The reason GW Bush spoke the way he did, and sometimes misspoke, is because he was speaking from the heart and didn`t use a teleprompter most of the time.

    Compare that with Obama who misspeaks, and often contradicts himself or fumbles, when speaking without a teleprompter, Or sounds like a robotic automaton when he does use a teleprompter.

    GW Bush actually took questions personally from the WH press pool. Contrast that with Obama, who doesn`t take questions, sends out his press secretary and then his press secretary won`t even take many questions.

    Obama promised, "The most transparent White House ever", So far he`s been nothing but a brick wall and even his adoring MSM press is annoyed with him over it.

    everyone is wrong. It was caused by the rats. Dont any of you study your Douglas Adams? The rats created highly sophisticated androids designed to look human and sent them to attack us so they could study how we would react.

    When I play conspiracy games, I ignore the rules.

    I allege that there`s a high-level decision in the CIA to grow watercress on huge blankets on the moon and that they spent a trillion dollars genetically engineering a variant of watercress that matches the colour of the moon so that it wouldn`t suddenly turn green.

    Anyone can allege anything.

    @Angilion, thanks for the confirmation of my theory. The lunar watercress is a key component of the overall plan. All that`s left is the subliminal broadcast of Tiny Tim singing the Horst-Wessel-Lied. Then everyone will see. And everyone will understand the depths of the deception.

    They also wanted to use those planes to test out new aircraft and weaponry where people wouldn`t question what took place when these planes went down. This technology came straight out of Area 51 with out a single control tower seeing anything.

    Cajun: I believe GW Bush was misinformed and bullied into that last act of his presidency. He was being told, by nearly everyone at the time, that TARP had to be done to save the economy.

    The real problem came to be how the bailout was administered, who got the money, and how much. All of that was debacle is clearly Obama`s fault.

    Bush did sign the bill, Obama`s Tim Geithner wrote the checks out.

    Cover-up? Check!
    Conspiracy? Double check!!
    Bush involved? Um, not really!

    So many lies, the truth may never be told.

    It`s not the first, nor will it be the last time the USA`s gov`t has lied, killed and covered up.

    Lone Gunman? Not even Jackie Kennedy believed THAT lie.

    [/quote">

    Really now?
    So he was bullied into signing an act that was supposed to raise standards in public education which has instead encouraged teachers nationwide to lower them?
    So he was bullied into signing a farm bill?
    So he was bullied into signing a pork-filled transportation bill?
    He was even bullied into signing a prescription d

    He was also bullied into approving an auto bailout?
    Now the second farm bill IS forgivable as Bush did veto it, but why did he cave on the TARP? On top of a war, how the fu<k do you call all that fiscal conservatism?
