The Coincidence Theorist's Guide to 9/11 </BLOCKQUOTE>
</FONT><BLOCKQUOTE>That intelligence agencies, financiers, terrorists and narco-criminals have a long history together is well established, but the <A HREF="http://sunday.ninemsn.com.au/sunday/investigative/case1.asp">Nugan Hand Bank</A>, <A HREF="http://www.fas.org/irp/congress/1992_rpt/bcci/11intel.htm">BCCI</A>, <A HREF="http://www.deepblacklies.co.uk/operation_gladio.htm">Banco Ambrosiano</A>, the <A HREF="http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Propaganda_Due">P2 Lodge</A>, the <A HREF="http://www.jfklancer.com/cuba/castroplots.html">CIA/Mafia</A> anti-Castro/Kennedy alliance, <A HREF="http://www.madcowprod.com/mc5012004.html">Iran/Contra</A> and the rest were a long time ago, so there’s no need to <A HREF="http://www.deepblacklies.co.uk/the_money_fountain.htm">rehash all that</A>. That was then and <A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/KUP311A.html">this is now</A>! </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>George Bush's brother Marvin sat on the board of the Kuwaiti-owned </STRONG>company which<STRONG> provided </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.commondreams.org/views03/0204-06.htm">electronic security</A><STRONG> to the World Trade Centre, Dulles Airport and United Airlines </STRONG>means nothing more than you must admit those Bush boys have done "alright" for themselves. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Jonathan Bush’s</STRONG> <A HREF="http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Riggs_Bank_N.A.">Riggs Bank</A> has been <STRONG>found guilty of laundering terrorist funds</STRONG> and <STRONG>fined a US-record $25 million</STRONG> must embarrass his nephew George, but it's still no justification for leaping to paranoid conclusions.</BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That George Bush found success as a businessman <STRONG>only after the investment of Osama’s brother Salem and reputed al Qaeda financier Khalid bin Mahfouz</STRONG> is just 'one of those things' - one of those crazy things. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That Osama bin Laden is known to have been an asset of US foreign policy in no way implies <A HREF="http://www.apfn.net/messageboard/01-11-04/discussion.cgi.28.html">he still is</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>al Qaeda was active in the Balkan</STRONG> conflict, <STRONG>fighting on the same side as the US as recently as 1999</STRONG>, while the <A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/VIN204A.html">US protected its cells</A>, is merely one of history's little <A HREF="http://globalresearch.ca/articles/MNA110A.html">aberrations</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>The claims of <A HREF="http://www.gregpalast.com/detail.cfm?artid=104&row=1">Michael Springman</A>,<STRONG> State Department veteran</STRONG> of the Jeddah visa bureau, <STRONG>that the CIA ran the office and </STRONG><A HREF="http://sandiego.indymedia.org/en/2002/02/521.shtml">issued visas</A><STRONG> to al Qaeda members so they could receive training in the United States</STRONG>, sound like the sour grapes of someone who was fired for making such wild accusations. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That one of <A HREF="http://www.complete911timeline.org/">George Bush's first acts as President, in January 2001</A>, was to end the two-year deployment of attack submarines which were positioned within striking distance of al Qaeda's Afghanistan camps, even as the group's guilt for the Cole bombing was established, proves that a transition from one administration to the next is never an easy task. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That so many <A HREF="http://www.newamericancentury.org/">influential figures</A> in and close to the<A HREF="http://www.crisispapers.org/Editorials/PNAC-Primer.htm"> Bush White House</A> had expressed, just <STRONG>a year before the attacks</STRONG>, <STRONG>the need for a </STRONG>"<A HREF="http://pilger.carlton.com/print/124759">new Pearl Harbor</A>"<STRONG> before their </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.newamericancentury.org/RebuildingAmericasDefenses.pdf">militarist ambitions</A><STRONG> could be fulfilled</STRONG>, demonstrates nothing more than the accidental virtue of being in the <A HREF="http://www.pnac.info/">right place</A> at the right time. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the company <A HREF="http://www.globalsecurity.org/org/news/2002/021208-secure01.htm">PTECH</A>, founded by a <STRONG>Saudi financier </STRONG>placed on <STRONG>America’s Terrorist Watch List in October 2001</STRONG>, had <STRONG>access to the FAA’s entire computer system for two years before the 9/11 attack</STRONG>, means he must not have been such a threat after all. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That whistleblower <A HREF="http://www.madcowprod.com/mc4512004.html">Indira Singh</A> was <STRONG>told to keep her mouth shut and forget what she learned when she took her concerns about PTECH to her employers and federal authorities</STRONG>, suggests she lacked the big picture. And that the <STRONG>Chief Auditor for JP Morgan Chase</STRONG> told Singh repeatedly, as she answered questions <STRONG>about who supplied her with what information</STRONG>, that "<STRONG>that person should be killed</STRONG>," suggests he should take an anger management seminar. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That o<STRONG>n </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/timeline.jsp?timeline=complete_911_timeline&timepe riod=2001%20-%200:05am%2011%20Sept%202001">May 8, 2001</A><STRONG>, Dick Cheney took upon himself the job of co-ordinating a response to domestic terror attacks </STRONG>even as he was crafting the administration’s energy policy which bore <A HREF="http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4458.htm">implications</A> for America's military, <STRONG>circumventing the established infrastructure</STRONG> and ignoring the recommendations of the Hart-Rudman report, merely shows the VP to be someone who finds it hard to delegate. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <STRONG>standing order which covered the </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/corres/pdf/d302515_021897/d302515p.pdf">shooting down</A><STRONG> of hijacked aircraft was altered on June 1, 2001</STRONG>, <STRONG>taking discretion away from field commanders and placing it solely in the hands of the Secretary of Defense [Donald Rumsfeld]</STRONG>, is simply poor planning and unfortunate timing. Fortunately the error has been corrected, as the order was rescinded shortly <STRONG>after</STRONG> 9/11. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That in the <STRONG>weeks before 9/11</STRONG>, FBI agent <A HREF="http://www.time.com/time/covers/1101020603/memo.html">Colleen Rowley</A><STRONG> found her investigation of </STRONG><A HREF="http://educate-yourself.org/cn/zacariasmoussaouiprofile13jan05.shtml">Zacarias Moussaoui</A><STRONG> so </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/MOO208B.html">perversely thwarted</A> that her colleagues joked that bin Laden had a mole at the FBI, proves the stress-relieving virtue of humour in the workplace. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/02/43525.shtml">Dave Frasca</A> of the <STRONG>FBI’s Radical Fundamentalist Unit received a promotion</STRONG> <STRONG>after quashing multiple, urgent requests for investigations into al Qaeda assets training at flight schools in the summer of 2001</STRONG> does appear on the surface odd, but undoubtedly there's a good reason for it, quite possibly classified. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>FBI informant </STRONG><A HREF="http://innworldreport.net/video/2004-07-02/glass.html">Randy Glass</A><STRONG>,</STRONG> working an undercover sting, <STRONG>was told by Pakistani intelligence operatives that the World Trade Center towers were coming down</STRONG>, and that his <A HREF="http://www.cooperativeresearch.org/timeline/main/randyglass.html">repeated warnings</A> which continued until weeks before the attacks, including the mention of planes used as weapons, were ignored by federal authorities, is simply one of the many "What Ifs" of that tragic day. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>over the summer of 2001 Washington received many </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1375723">urgen t, senior-level warnings</A><STRONG> from foreign intelligence agencies and governments</STRONG> - including those of Germany, France, Great Britain, Russia, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Afghanistan and others - <STRONG>of impending terror attacks using hijacked aircraft</STRONG> and did nothing, demonstrates the pressing need for a new Intelligence Czar. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That<STRONG> </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2001/07/26/national/main303601.shtml">John Ashcroft stopped flying commercial aircraft in July</A><STRONG> 2001 on account of security considerations</STRONG> had nothing to do with warnings regarding September 11, because he said so to the 9/11 Commission. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>former lead counse</STRONG>l for the House <A HREF="http://infowars.com/transcript_schippers.html">David Schippers</A> says <STRONG>he’d taken to John Ashcroft’s office specific warnings he’d learned from FBI agents in New York of an impending attack </STRONG>– even naming the proposed dates, names of the hijackers and the targets – and that the investigations had been stymied and the agents threatened, proves nothing but David Schipper’s pathetic need for attention. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.org/view_article.php?aid=670727528">Garth Nicolson</A> <STRONG>received two warnings from contacts in the intelligence community</STRONG> and one from a North African head of state, which included <STRONG>specific site, date and source of the attacks, and passed the information to the Defense Department and the National Security Council</STRONG> to evidently no effect, clearly amounts to nothing, since virtually nobody has ever heard of him. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That in the <STRONG>months prior to September 11</STRONG>, self-described US intelligence operative <A HREF="http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/index-vreeland.html">Delmart Vreeland</A> <STRONG>sough</STRONG>t, from a Toronto jail cell,<STRONG> to get US and Canadian authorities to heed his warning of his accidental discovery of impending catastrophic attacks</STRONG> is worthless, since Vreeland was a <A HREF="http://www.guerrillanews.com/wildcard/vreeland_one">dubious character</A>, notwithstanding the fact that many of his claims have since been <A HREF="http://www.thestar.ca/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=thestar/Layout/Article_Type1&call_pageid=971358637177&c=Article&c id=1070579408676%20%20&tacodalogin=no">proven true</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>FBI Special Investigator </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.judicialwatch.org/printer_2469.shtml">Robert Wright</A> claims that agents assigned to intelligence operations actually protect terrorists from investigation and prosecution, that the FBI shut down his probe into terrorist training camps, and that he was removed from a money-laundering case that had a direct link to terrorism, sounds like yet more <A HREF="http://www.laweekly.com/ink/02/37/news-crogan.php">sour grapes</A> from a disgruntled employee. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>George Bush had plans to invade Afghanistan on his desk </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-03-23-war-analysis_x.htm">before 9/11</A> demonstrates only the value of<A HREF="http://www.wsws.org/articles/2001/nov2001/afgh-n20.shtml"> being prepared</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>The suggestion that <STRONG>securing </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/oilwar1.html">an oil pipeline</A><STRONG> across Afghanistan figured into the White House’s calculations</STRONG> is as ludicrous as the assertion that oil played a part in determining war in Iraq. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Afghanistan is once again</STRONG> the <STRONG>world’s </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/MCS306A.html">principal heroin producer</A> is an unfortunate reality, but to claim that the <A HREF="http://www.lycaeum.org/drugwar/DARKALLIANCE/ciaheron.html">CIA is still actively involved</A> in the <STRONG>narcotics trade</STRONG> is to presume <A HREF="http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO404A.html">bad faith</A> on the part of the agency. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE><A HREF="http://www.billstclair.com/911timeline/main/mahmoodahmed.html">Mahmood Ahmed</A><STRONG>, chief of Pakistan’s ISI</STRONG> [Internal Security], must not have<A HREF="http://www1.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/cms.dll/articleshow?catkey=-2128936835&art_id=1454238160&sType=1"> authorized an al Qaeda payment of $100,000 to Mohammed Atta</A><STRONG> days before the attacks,</STRONG> and couldn't have <STRONG>met with senior Washington officials during the week of 9/11</STRONG>, because I didn’t read anything about him in the official report. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Rep. Porter Goss </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2004/08/76366.php">met with Ahmed the morning of September 11</A> in his capacity as <STRONG>Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence </STRONG>has no bearing whatsoever upon his recent selection by the White House to head the Central Intelligence Agency. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Rep. Goss's congressional seat encompasses the 9/11 hijackers' </STRONG><A HREF="http://portergoss.house.gov/">Florida base of operation</A><STRONG>, including their flight schools</STRONG>, is precisely the kind of meaningless factoid a conspiracy theorist would bring up. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>While it's true that <STRONG>George Bush Sr. and Dick Cheney spent the evening of September 10 alone in the Oval Office</STRONG>; what's wrong with old colleagues catching up? And even though <STRONG>George Bush Sr. and Shafig bin Laden, Osama's brother, spent the morning of September 11 together</STRONG> at a board meeting of the Carlyle Group, doesn't mean a hill of beans as the bin Ladens are a <EM>very </EM>big family. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2004/07/fema-in-big-apple.html">FEMA arrived in New York on Sept 10</A><STRONG> to prepare for a scheduled biowarfare drill, and had a triage centre ready to go</STRONG> that was larger and better equipped than the one that was lost in the collapse of WTC 7, was a lucky twist of fate. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE><A HREF="http://www.disinfo.com/archive/pages/article/id2672/pg1/">Newsweek’s report</A><STRONG> that senior Pentagon officials cancelled flights on Sept 10 for the following day on account of security concerns</STRONG> is only newsworthy because of what happened the following morning. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1819543">Georg e Bush's telephone logs</A><STRONG> for September 11 do not exist</STRONG> should surprise no one, given the confusion of the day. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.911independentcommission.org/airports31804.html">Mohamed Atta attended the International Officer's School at Maxwell Air Force Base</A>, that <STRONG>Abdulaziz Alomari attended Brooks Air Force Base Aerospace Medical School</STRONG>, that <STRONG>Saeed Alghamdi attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey</STRONG> merely shows it is <A HREF="http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/jun2002/offi-j21.shtml">a small world</A>, after all. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That<STRONG> </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mcherald/3406502.htm">Lt Col Steve Butler</A><STRONG>, Vice Chancellor for student affairs of the Defense Language Institute</STRONG> during Alghamdi's terms, <A HREF="http://www.truthout.org/docs_02/06.06E.butler.bush.htm">was disciplined</A><STRONG>, removed from his post and threatened with court martial when he wrote</STRONG> <EM>"Bush knew of the impending attacks on America. He did nothing to warn the American people because he needed this war on terrorism. What is...contemptible is the President of the United States not telling the American people what he knows for political gain,"</EM> is the least that should have happened for such disrespect shown his Commander in Chief. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1433886">Moham med Atta</A> dressed like a Mafioso, <STRONG>had a stripper girlfriend</STRONG>, <STRONG>smuggled drugs</STRONG>, was already a licensed pilot when he entered the US, enjoyed pork chops, <STRONG>drank to excess and did cocaine</STRONG>, was closer to Europeans than Arabs in Florida, and included the names of defence contractors on his email list, proves how dangerous the radical <STRONG>fundamentalist Muslim</STRONG> can be. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>43 lbs of heroin was found</STRONG> on board the Lear Jet owned by <A HREF="http://newsmine.org/archive/9-11/questions/flightschool/hilliard-bankrolled-911-flight-school-and-rudi-dekkers.txt">Wally Hilliard</A><STRONG>, the owner of Atta’s flight school</STRONG>, just <STRONG>three weeks after Atta enrolled</STRONG> – the biggest seizure ever in Central Florida – was <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1294206">just bad luck</A>. That <STRONG>Hilliard was not charged</STRONG> shows how specious the claims for conspiracy truly are. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.madcowprod.com/books.html">Hilliard’s plane</A><STRONG> had made 30-round trips to Venezuela with the same passengers who always paid cash</STRONG>, that the <STRONG>plane had been supplied by a pair of drug smugglers who had also outfitted </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ciadrugs/W_plane.html">CIA drug runner Barry Seal</A>, and that <STRONG>9/11 commissioner </STRONG><A HREF="http://sanderhicks.com/benveniste.html">Richard ben-Veniste had been Seal’s attorney</A><STRONG> before </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.wethepeople.la/seal2.htm">Seal’s murder</A>, shows nothing but the lengths to which conspiracists will go <A HREF="http://www.voxfux.com/features/bush_crime_family.html">to draw sinister conclusions</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE><A HREF="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,34910,00.html">Reports</A><STRONG> of</STRONG> <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x509119">inside r trading on 9/11</A> are false, because <A HREF="http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2004-98.htm">the SEC</A> investigated and found only respectable investors, who will remain nameless, were involved, and no terrorists, so <A HREF="http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/12_06_01_death_profits_pt1.html">the windfall profit-taking</A> was merely, as ever, coincidental. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=125x10267#10267">h eightened security for the World Trade Centre was lifted immediately prior to the attacks</A> illustrates that it always happens when you least expect it. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Hani Hanjour, the pilot of Flight 77</STRONG>, <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=104&topic_id=976740 &mesg_id=976740">was so incompetent</A> he <STRONG>could not fly a Cessna in August</STRONG>, <STRONG>but in September managed to fly a 767 at excessive speed into a spiraling, 270-degree descent and a level impact of the first floor of the Pentagon</STRONG>, on the only side of the building that was virtually empty of people and had been hardened to withstand a terrorist attack, merely demonstrates that people can do almost anything once they set their minds to it. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://911research.wtc7.net/planes/evidence/flightdata.html">none of the flight data recorders</A><STRONG> were said to be recoverable even though they were located in the tail sections, and that </STRONG><B><EM>until 9/11</B></EM><STRONG>, no solid-state recorder in a catastrophic crash had been unrecoverable</STRONG>, shows how there's a first time for everything. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Mohammed Atta left a uniform, a will, a Koran, his driver's license and a "</STRONG><A HREF="http://abcnews.go.com/sections/us/DailyNews/WTC_MAIN010912.html">how to fly planes</A><STRONG>" video in his rental car at the airport</STRONG> means he had other things on his mind. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>The mention of <STRONG>Israelis with links to military-intelligence</STRONG> having been<STRONG> </STRONG><A HREF="http://abcnews.go.com/sections/2020/DailyNews/2020_whitevan_020621.html">arrested on Sept 11</A><STRONG> videotaping and celebrating the attacks</STRONG>, of an<A HREF="http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2002/05/07/students/index_np.html"> Israeli espionage ring</A><STRONG> surveiling DEA and defense installations and trailing the hijackers</STRONG>, and of a<STRONG> warning of impending attacks delivered to the Israeli company Odigo two hours before the first plane hit</STRONG>, does not deserve a response. That the stories also appeared in publications such as <A HREF="http://www.haaretzdaily.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=77744&contrassID=/has%5C">Ha'aretz</A> and <A HREF="http://www.forward.com/issues/2002/02.03.15/news2.html">Forward</A> is a sad display of self-hatred among certain elements of the Israeli media. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>multiple military wargames and simulations were underway the morning of 9/11</STRONG> – one <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1298401">simul ating the crash of a plane into a building</A>; another, <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1694495">a live-fly simulation of multiple hijackings</A> – and <STRONG>took many interceptors away from the eastern seaboard and confused field commanders as to which was a real hijacked aircraft </STRONG>and which was a hoax, was a bizarre coincidence, but no less a coincidence. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x631352">Nation al Military Command Center ops director asked a rookie substitute to stand his watch at 8:30 am on Sept. 11</A> is nothing more than bad timing. </BLOCKQUOTE>

<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <A HREF="http://www.observer.com/pages/story.asp?ID=7816">FBI knew precisely<FONT COLOR="#800000"><EM> which</FONT></EM> Florida flight schools</A><STRONG> to descend upon hours after the attacks</STRONG> should make every American feel safer knowing their federal agents are on the ball. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That a <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1433886">forme r flight school executive believes the hijackers were "double agents,</A>" and says about <STRONG>Atta </STRONG>and associates, "<STRONG>Early on I gleaned that these guys had government protection.

<BLOCKQUOTE>That <A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x1328855">Jeb Bush was on board an aircraft </A><STRONG>that removed flight school records to Washington in the middle of the night on Sept 12th</STRONG> demonstrates how seriously the governor takes the issue of national security. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>To insinuate evil motive from <A HREF="http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=September_11%2C_2001:_Evacuation_ of_Saudi_Nationals">the mercy flights of bin Laden family</A><STRONG> members and Saudi royals out of the country after 9/11</STRONG> shows the sickness of the conspiratorial mindset. </BLOCKQUOTE>

<BLOCKQUOTE>That at the <STRONG>battle of Tora Bora, where bin Laden was surrounded on three sides, Special Forces received no order to advance and capture him but were forced to stand and watch as </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.fayettevillenc.com/story-archive.php?Template=terrorism&Story=37935">two Russian-made helicopters </A><STRONG>flew into the area where bin Laden was believed hiding, loaded up passengers and returned to Pakistan</STRONG>, demonstrates how confusing the modern battlefield can be. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That upon returning to Fort Bragg from Tora Bora, the <STRONG>same Special Operations troops who had been stood down from capturing bin Laden, </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=104&topic_id=15365 76#1536694">suffered a unusual spree of murder/suicides</A>, is nothing more than a series of senseless tragedies. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>Reports that <STRONG>bin Laden is currently receiving periodic dialysis treatment in a Pakistani medical hospital</STRONG> are simply too incredible to be true. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <A HREF="http://www.judicialwatch.org/2953.shtml">White House went on Cipro September 1</A>1 shows the foresightedness of America’s emergency response. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <STRONG>anthrax was mailed to perceived liberal media and the </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/jan2002/anth-j23.shtml">Democratic leadership</A> demonstrates only the perversity of the terrorist psyche. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <A HREF="http://www.oilempire.us/anthrax.html">anthrax attacks</A><STRONG> appeared to </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.freefromterror.net/other_articles/gov_anthrax.html">silence opponents of the Patriot Act </A>shows only that appearances can be deceiving. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the Ames-strain <STRONG>anthrax was found to have </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.glennbeck.com/news/03202002.shtml">originated at Fort Detrick</A>, and was beyond the capability of all but a few labs to refine, underscores the importance of allowing the investigation to continue without the <A HREF="http://www.counterpunch.org/madsenanthrax.html">distraction of absurd conspiracy theories</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>Republican guru Grover Norquis</STRONG>t has been found to have <A HREF="http://www.citizensoldier.org/norquist.html">aided financiers and supporters of Islamic terror</A><STRONG> to gain access to the Bush White House,</STRONG> and is a <STRONG>founder of the Islamic Institute</STRONG>, which the Treasury Department believes to be a <STRONG>source of funding for al Qaeda</STRONG>, suggests Norquist is at worst, naive, and at best, needs a wider circle of friends. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the <STRONG>Department of Justice consistently chooses to allow accused 9/11 plotters go free rather than permit </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.commondreams.org/headlines04/0206-04.htm">the courtroom testimony of al Qaeda leaders in American custody</A> looks bad, but only because we don't have all the facts. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That the<A HREF="http://edition.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/01/29/inv.terror.probe/"> White House balked</A><STRONG> at any inquiry into the events of 9/11, then </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,437267,00.html">starved it of funds</A><STRONG> and </STRONG><A HREF="http://home.earthlink.net/~imfalse/9-11_commission_says.html">stonewalled it</A>, was unfortunate, but since the commission didn't find for conspiracy, it's all a non issue anyway. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>the 9/11 commission's executive director and "gatekeeper," Philip Zelikow, was so closely involved in the events under investigation that </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=20040115-024012-7011r"><I>he testified</I></A><STRONG> before the the commission as part of the inquiry</STRONG>, shows only an apparent conflict of interest. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>commission chair Thomas Kean is, like George Bush, a Texas oil executive who had business dealings with reputed </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Thomas_H._Kean">al Qaeda financier Khalid bin Mafouz</A>, suggests Texas is smaller than they say it is. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>co-chair Lee Hamilton has a history as a Bush family "fixer,</STRONG>" including clearing Bush Sr of the claims arising from the 1980 "October Surprise", is of no concern, since only conspiracists believe there was such a thing as an <A HREF="http://www.btinternet.com/~nlpwessex/Documents/hamiltonoctsurprise.htm">October Surprise</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That <STRONG>FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds</STRONG> accuses the <STRONG>agency </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;f orum=102&topic_id=442067&mesg_id=442067">of intentionally fudging specific pre-9/11 warnings and harboring a foreign espionage ring in its translation department</A>, and claims she <STRONG>witnessed evidence of the </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=102x655980">semi-official infrastructure</A><STRONG> of </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;a mp;forum=104&topic_id=1555133&mesg_id=1555133">mon ey-laundering</A><STRONG> and </STRONG><A HREF="http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=102&amp;amp;amp;amp ;amp;amp;amp;topic_id=610235&mesg_id=610235">narco tics trade</A><STRONG> behind the attacks</STRONG>, is of no account, since John Ashcroft has gagged her with the rare invocation of "State Secrets Privilege," and retroactively classified her public testimony. For the sake of national security, let us speak no more of her. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>That, when commenting on Edmond's case, <A HREF="http://www.breakfornews.com/Sibel-Edmonds1.htm">Daniel Ellsberg</A> remarked that Ashcroft could go to prison for his part in a cover-up, suggests Ellsberg is giving comfort to the terrorists, and could, if he doesn't wise up, find himself declared an <A HREF="http://www.claremont.org/projects/jurisprudence/hamdi_ussc.html">enemy combatant</A>. </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>It has been known that <A HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/Columnists/Column/0,5673,1019246,00.html">governments</A> have permitted terrorist acts against <A HREF="http://avantgo.thetimes.co.uk/services/avantgo/article/0,,1150429,00.html">their own people</A>, and have even themselves been <A HREF="http://english.terror99.ru/explosions/">perpetrators</A> in order to find strategic advantage, but this is <EM>The</EM> United States we're talking about!</BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>I could go on and on and on, but I trust you get the point which is simply this: </BLOCKQUOTE>
<BLOCKQUOTE>1. there are no secrets, <BR>
2. an American government would <EM>never</EM> accept civilian casualties for geostrategic gain, and <BR>
3. conspiracies are for the weak-minded and gullible. </BLOCKQUOTE>
