Documentation of Plans to Crash Airplanes Into Buildings that Bush and Condi Claim They Knew Nothing About: They Lie, Assassinate People's Characters Instead of Refuting Their Evidence -- and They are, Most Dangerous to the Nation, Incompetent.
A BUZZFLASH EDITORIAL
First, Let Us Share Damning Evidence Provided by a BuzzFlash Reader:
BuzzFlash Note: But even more damaging is this 2002 CBS News Article, " Report Warned Of Suicide Hijackings" [LINK]
Bush, Powell and Rumsfeld have been using carefully crafted "legal" statements this week in which they say that had they known planes were to be hijacked and flown SPECIFICALLY into the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon, they would have taken steps to prevent the incidents. It takes an idiot not to see that they are "protecting" themselves from being charged with lying. Lying about what? Claiming that they were not warned about potential imminent hijackings and use of planes as assault weapons in general.
They knew and did nothing.
This is not speculation. This is fact.
They are condemned by their own words.
We don't need a 9/11 Commission.
The truth about the Bush Administration ignoring blatant warnings about an imminent Al-Qaeda attack are already on the record.
To boot, a phalanx of whistleblowers have outed their lies. The only response that the Bush administration has had to the truth is to attack the characters of the truth tellers. They can't refute what these patriots have to say. Because most of it, except for a few salacious details, is on the record. The Bush Cartel has revealed most of the condemning facts, inadvertently, by itself.
One more time then. In August of 2001, after putting the fight against terrorism on the back burner, after being warned by Clinton experts about the danger of Osama, after ignoring the Hart-Rudman report on the urgent need to combat terrorism[LINK], after delegating the formulation of a plan to fight terror to Dick Cheney (who was too busy conducting his secret energy meetings with energy company execs and lobbyists, meetings that included an examination of Iraq's oil fields), after receiving a briefing that alerted him to likely imminent Al-Qaeda hijackings, Bush did nothing: NOTHING! [LINK],
Now, the 9/11 Commission is poised to let Rice get off without testifying publicly under oath -- and the Chairman of the 9/11 Commission can only review the records of the infamous August 2001 warning to Bush while under guard at the White House -- and he must leave any notes about the meeting in a safe at the White House!
BuzzFlash prediction: The 9/11 Commission will end up concluding that BOTH Clinton and Bush could have done more, because the panel is split between Republicans and Democrats and that is the only "political" consensus that they will be able to reach. The ferociously partisan character assassination questioning of Richard Clarke by Republican panel members, including the former hack Illinois Governor Jim Thompson, indicates that even so-called "moderate" Republicans aren't going to let the truth and national security get in the way of protecting their boy-king incompetent, George W. Bush.
The first crime was Antonin Scalia leading a Supreme Court coup to steal the 2000 election for George W. Bush; the second crime was the Bush Administration's dereliction of duty in not even TRYING to protect the people of America from 9/11; the third crime is that the 9/11 Commission is going to come up with a "political compromise" in its findings.
BuzzFlash just interviewed John Dean about his new book, "Worse Than Watergate." He argues that the Bush administration is the worst presidency he has seen at stonewalling, lying, and vindictiveness.
John Dean should know. He was Nixon's legal counsel and informed Nixon that there "was a cancer" on his presidency in regards to what Dean was beginning to find out about Watergate at that time.
Now it is worse; the Bush administration is a cancer upon America.
And we are paying for it with our lives: first on 9/11 and now in Iraq.
The truth is before the eyes of the 9/11 Commission. They could stop now and call no further witnesses.
Bush and Dick Cheney failed America.
They failed us because of incompetence, because of their obsession with Iraq.
They failed us because they cannot govern a democracy.
They failed us because in the Bush Cartel, ideology and hubris trump common sense facts and information.
And now the 9/11 Commission is poised to fail us.
It will be another crime against the nation.
