Anyone, who has read the very first post on this blog , knows that I am what is referred to as a "conspiracy theorist" when it comes to the 9/11 terrorist attack on the WTC Towers.
In the past I have always been skeptical about conspiracy theories and only came to be a believer, when it comes to 9/11, reluctantly and slowly. I am now convinced that the scenario was a plot by persons at the very top of our Government to implement a neo- conservative plan, formulated as early as 1992, by a group that found itself in positions of power, with the election of George W. Bush to the Presidency.
That group, headed by Cheney and Wolfowitz, even wrote that a Pearl Harbor like attack, on America, was needed to enable their scheme to be set in motion. That attack turned out too be the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
My suspicion that it was a conspiracy began with a report that Cheney had ordered the use of torture against captured Al Qaeda prisoners, who had knowledge of 9/11. The protocol being used was one developed by the North Vietnamese not to gather intelligence, but to elicit false confessions. Now having had the opportunity to work with government employees, I know that, contrary to public belief, they are, for the most part, very competent and capable people. They are not just a bunch of bunglers. There had to be a reason behind the use of an improper protocol. For me it meant just one thing. Somebody wanted plausible deniability in case embarrassing information about 9/11 was blurted out.
My suspicions grew deeper when I learned that the bin Laden family had sent most of their children to safe havens in Pakistan and the U.S., even though the school year had already started, just before the attack. Those women and children would never have come to the U.S. if they did not have complete assurances from our Government that they would be safe.
There are other strange coincidences that have come to my attention, but the latest one will suffice. George Tenet, the head of the C.I.A., has just come out, in a book, where he documents advice after advice to Bush/Cheney about an impending terror attack only to be ignored by both, with Bush offering a lame excuse as to why he was ignoring the warnings.
I want my grandchildren to mark my words that within 50 years there will be official acknowledgement of the treachery and treason that preceded our invasion of Iraq.
