Most of the world has now seen the infamous picture of President Bush tending to his ranch on August 6, 2001, the day he received the ultra-classified Presidential Daily Brief (PDB) that included a report entitled “Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US.” And most Americans have also heard of the so-called “Phoenix Memo” that an FBI agent in Phoenix sent to FBI headquarters on July 10, 2001, which advised of the “possibility of a coordinated effort” by bin Laden to send students to the United States to attend civil aviation schools.
As a Counsel to the 9/11 Commission, I became very familiar with both the PDB and the Phoenix Memo, as well as the tragic consequences of the failure to detect and stop the plot. A mixture of shock, anger, and sadness overcame me when I read about revelations in Bob Woodward’s new book about a special surprise visit that George Tenet and his counterterrorism chief Cofer Black made to Condi Rice, also on July 10, 2001:
They went over top-secret intelligence pointing to an impending attack and “sounded the loudest warning” to the White House of a likely attack on the U.S. by Bin Laden.
Woodward writes that Rice was polite, but, “They felt the brushoff.”

Killing thousands and making the earth radioactive FOR POLITICAL GAIN? I think its more a case of TO AVOID GETTING HANGED.
As always.. the ENEMY will "attack unprovoked" .. and "we" are "just" defending us.

The Navy has recovered from the 9/11 wiping-out of their electronic warfare technicians inside the pentagon... maybe now they can make the Iranians fire a missile into a US warship.
The recent CONSILLIATORY BUSH RETHORIC towards Iran will be brandished as proof that nobody wanted that war...
Poor old General Musharraf. His PR trip trying to rehabilitate the image of Pakistan around the world appears to have been slightly scuppered by the leak of the now widely-reported UK Defence Academy paper. Notwithstanding the predictable chorus of denial from the corridors of power, namely, from those who for all intents and purposes stand accused (at the current time Musharraf, Blair, Bush, etc.), the leaked report is entirely consistent with a wealth of evidence in the public record.
The leaked report, authored by a British intelligence official with a military background, is based on interviews with Pakistani Army officers and academics. BBC News has flagged-up one of the most important sections of the document, which says:
The Army's dual role in combating terrorism and at the same time promoting the MMA and so indirectly supporting the Taliban (through the ISI) is coming under closer and closer international scrutiny. Pakistan is not currently stable but on the edge of chaos.
[The West has] turned a blind eye towards existing instability and the indirect protection of Al Qaeda and promotion of terrorism.
Indirectly Pakistan (through the ISI) has been supporting terrorism and extremism - whether in London on 7/7 or in Afghanistan or Iraq.
The US/UK cannot begin to turn the tide until they identify the real enemies from attacking ideas tactically - and seek to put in place a more just vision. This will require Pakistan to move away from Army rule and for the ISI to be dismantled and more significantly something to be put in its place.
Musharraf knows that time is running out for him...

It's important to note this was taking place at the same time the family members were calling for a new investigation across the hall.
Criticism of Bush is a Capital Offense - Official

If I were American , I could be detained without trial and executed for writing this criticism of the government.
Enemy Combatants: A dangerously broad definition of “illegal enemy combatant” in the bill could subject legal residents of the United States, as well as foreign citizens living in their own countries, to summary arrest and indefinite detention with no hope of appeal. The president could give the power to apply this label to anyone he wanted.
It's happening in my country too.
I recently posted a blog about the Flight 93 propaganda machine and a comment was left by a fellow truther, T-Bone, in response to my video. I totally misread his statement and jumped to the wrong conclusion that he was being sarcastic with me, suggesting I didn't know what I was doing and not asking the tough questions. I responded by biting his head off and it was a total overreaction on my part because I misunderstood his statement. My sincerest apologies for attacking a fellow truther. I feel like sh*t now and I hope T-Bone reads this because I am truly sorry for, once again, letting my temper get the best of me. And my apologies go to everyone in the Truth Movement for having to see that despicable side of me that I only reserve for use against the government. My deepest apologies.
Just Who is the Turbaned Terrorist Al-Zawahiri?
Who & what is really behind the bogey man Ayman Al-Zawahiri and his spate Video Nasty releases?
Ayman Al-Zawahiri is the Egyptian who broadcasts his contempt of the west increasingly regularly, and conveniently it would appear, on the "JBN" (Jihad Broadcasting Network). It should be noted he also appeared in the 'fake bin-Laden' video.
A typical JBN (Jihad Broadcasting Network) video would refer to any broadcast that is made "apparently" outside of the "controlled" corporate media and has the following intentions and outcomes:
