FAILURE OR DIVINE INTERVENTION: Pictured left
is the World Trade Center before the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. The Bush Administration,
in the service of the one true God, has used the death of thousands of innocent Americans at the
Pentagon and the WTC to justify the Christian Crusade (a.k.a. Crudesade by oil executives) in Iraq, the elimination
of basic Constitutional Rights at home, and the use of the politics of fear to retain power.
THE RED VIEW OF THE WORLD
Bush and Cheney were rewarded by their red comrades
with a second term. These evangelical christians and maybe the Christian in Chief,
himself, know in their "heart of hearts" that Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell were right all along about 9/11.
9/11 was not the result of an inept administration. It was God's Will! The
enlightened know that 9/11 was God's wakeup call to America. And the Lord said "stop tolerating
homosexuals and those that oppose prayer in the public schools" as he watched the Twin Towers crumble.
THE BLUE VIEW OF THE WORLD
The Bush Administration's failure to protect innocent Americans was directly related
to their inability to govern and the inept "leadership" of George W. Bush and his daddy's cronies. Quite simply, Dick
Cheney and Rumsfeld didn't focus on terrorism because the Clinton Administration told them that Osama bin Laden was America's
Instead, Cheney and Rumsfeld wanted to re-live the dream world of Ronnie Regan's 1980s
America that focused on destroying the evil of "godless communism." As a result, these two "old-schoolers" diverted
180 million dollars from counter- terrorism efforts to the Star Wars Missile Defense System in March 2001.
Did these two corporate foxes really think a "commie" nuclear attack was imminent?
Are you serious? The "boyz" knew that throwing 180 million dollars in government contracts to corporate cronies
in the defense industry would be good politics. Enrich a few "down and out" wealthy CEO's and get a little back
for the 2004 race.
This combination of corporate greed, out-of-time advisers, and the president's inability
to focus on anything set the stage for 9/11. As W vacationed, Osama's terrorists moved into position unnoticed.
As W failed to read security reports, the danger increased. As W failed to act, 9/11 happened.
The 9/11 Commission tried to get to the ugly truth that W failed to protect Americans.
But they were duped by Team W. Bush did not have to lie because he had Dick Cheney
and Condy to lie for him. W's lawyers convinced the Commission that Dick Cheney and W should
not have to testify under oath and that no transcript or recording of the session should be made. Instead, W and Dick had
a nice chat with a few hand-chosen, friendly Commissioners at the White House around the fireplace. And
just in case Dick and W couldn't get their stories straight, they were both in the room. How cozy.
Since the president did not cooperate with the 9/11 Commission, it is unlikely that the public will
ever know the truth. And while someone with a conscience might come forth, don't count on it. The Bush
Administration has a no-conscience "litmus test" for all cabinet officials.
Call us patriotic
Americans, but the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon will
never be forgotten! The murder of thousands of innocent American Patriots in New York and Virginia could have and should
have been prevented.
Like most, these Americans
were hard at work supporting families that could not rely on inherited wealth or the wealth
of their mommies and daddies. These Americans counted
on themselves to sustain their families' well-being.
The Bush Administration failed them and all Americans on 9/11. A fundamental function of any government is to protect its citizens
from foreign attack. After the fable of W scripted by Karl Rove fades, the annals of history will record
that 9/11 was the greatest blunder and failure of any American President.
Americans should continue to demand the truth in the name of each and every
American that perished. The time
has come for the White House to admit how it failed and why it failed when so much taxpayer money is devoted to the most
expensive and technologically-advanced military and intelligence gathering organizations in the history of the world.
Whoever in the Bush Administration dropped the ball should be called to task and resign. If it is W, he should
be impeached. Americans deserve nothing
One thing is clear from the Commission's analysis. The carnage and destruction on
9/11 could have been minimized if a "thinking president" had been in charge. Instead, we had a "breathing president"
in George W. Bush.
W's dysfunction on 9/11 was clearly apparent. That W continued to read to school
children for at least seven minutes after he learned that
the United States was under attack is the proof of his inability to lead. Precious life-saving moments slipped
by while Bush read to school children. We have all seen this disgusting display on tape - unbelievable!
As reported by the New York Daily News on 6/18/04, "The 9/11
investigation shows Cheney in command while President Bush is portrayed as determined to appear calm, eager to reassure the
country and worried about his family." In other words, W had no idea what to do!
Instead, our "breathing president" reacted like a skittish bunny and ran. Reminiscent
of his bravery during the Vietnam War, BUSH FLED AND WENT AWOL. The 9/11 Commission Chairman noted,
"The President was cut off" and "out
of the loop" as he sought to save his own hide by flying to a secure location
thousands of miles from NYC and Washington.
Realizing that this was a public relations nightmare for W
to be seen "on-the-run," Karl Rove and Ari did their best to convince America that the big, bad, no-nonsense
Secret Service would not let W go to Washington. First, they sold the media on this ridiculous idea and then the
Could you imagine what Harry Truman or JFK or Eisenhower would do if a Secret Service
Agent, under the President's command, told the President that he could not return to Washington during
a national emergency?
The 9/11 Commission also concluded that Georgie was "incommunicando
for periods of time due to a faulty radio system on Air Force One" A faulty radio system
on Air Force One? Karl, you are too much!
