Orwell and the 9/11 “Intelligence Triumph” - Kevin Barrett

Orwell and the 9/11 “Intelligence Triumph” - Mujca.com

The preface of veteran Middle East CIA agent Robert Baer's 2002 book See No Evil ends on an astonishing note: "The other day a reporter friend told me that one of the highest-ranking CIA officials had said to him, off the record, that when the dust finally clears, Americans will see that September 11 was a triumph for the intelligence community, not a failure."

9/11 an intelligence triumph? If the horrific, nationally televised mass murder of almost 3,000 Americans, the destruction of our most prominent architectural monument, the successful attack on our nation's top military command center, the controlled demolition of our Constitution, and the initiation of a series of military quagmires that are destroying our economy and hence our world primacy was an “intelligence triumph,” maybe we need more intelligence failures. Patrick Fitzgerald, will you please give Baer's journalist friend the Judith Miller treatment so we can learn the identity of this top-ranking CIA official who considers 9/11 an intelligence triumph? Perhaps he could be persuaded to kindly explain to your grand jury exactly what he meant.

If Baer's information is accurate, our “intelligence community” is run by lunatics at best, psychotic traitors and war criminals at worst. The mind boggles at the image of our top-ranking military and intelligence officials sitting around on September 12th, 2001, chortling and celebrating their “intelligence triumph.” Too bizarre to be true? Well, everybody responsible for the apparent failures on 9/11 has been promoted, while whistleblowers and honest anti-terror agents like Sibel Edmunds and Colleen Rowley have been gagged, fired or given the cold shoulder. All of the evidence indicates that the top brass, especially Donald “9/11 is an Opportunity to Remake the World” Rumsfeld, and Dick “Undisclosed Location” Cheney, really do view 9/11 as an “intelligence triumph.”
