New Iraqi War Documents - How Do They Relate To 9/11 - Part 2

A newly discovered Presidential Daily Briefing given to President Bush on September 21st adds further detail to our previous article on the subject.

Here is a summary of the newly discovered PDB from September 21st:

Ten days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, President Bush was told in a highly classified briefing that the U.S. intelligence community had no evidence linking the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein to the attacks and that there was scant credible evidence that Iraq had any significant collaborative ties with Al Qaeda, according to government records and current and former officials with firsthand knowledge of the matter.

And here is the document released in August of this year:

Given this new revelation a condensed timeline looks like so:

  • September 11th, 2001 - 9/11 Attacks
  • September 21st, 2001 - PDB Stating that Iraq had no ties to 9/11
  • October, 2001 - State Department Iraq transition planning begins

It should be painfully clear to anyone now that the Bush administration was set on attacking Iraq immediately after 9/11, even if it could not be justified. By using the media as a soapbox for spreading fear it associated 9/11 and Iraq through cognitive association.

It is amazing to me the utter refusal of the left, the right, and the media in general to acknowledge the existence of PNAC, who its members are, and the following statements which layout the desires of the 'cabal' that is ruining our country:

From an American perspective, the value of such bases would endure even should Saddam pass from the scene. Over the long term, Iran may well prove as large a threat to U.S. interests in the Gulf as Iraq has. And even should U.S.-Iranian relations improve, retaining forward-based forces in the region would still be an essential element in U.S. security strategy given the longstanding American interests in the region.

Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor.

It is imperative that those of us who are able to see the larger picture, and understand that 9/11 was the 'catalyzing event' that propelled the war in Iraq, bring PNAC to the forefront, and with it the truth about 9/11.

If PNAC's stated goals are not brought to the forefront we will continue to miss the larger stated goals of this administration. The left will be appeased through limited troop withdrawals, and this administration will continue to stay in power.

Proving that not only were we lied to about Iraq 'intelligence', but that it was part of a larger stated plan by this administration is imperative.

The Bush administration was not surprised on 9/11, not caught off guard or scrambling, but responded immediately with the intent to go into Iraq, not Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, but Iraq. They were not surprised on 9/11, because it was a necessary part of their larger stated plans.

As long as 9/11 stays a 'taboo' subject, and as long as PNAC's role in American policy is ignored, the American public will continue to be left in the dark as to the bigger picture, a dark and corrupt picture which began with the death of 2,986 Americans.

(For a more detailed timeline which further shows the determination to attack Iraq despite its lack of ties to 9/11 please check out, or at least their entries for September 12th)

Good post. Here's something

Here's something I did on the PNAC/Media connection...

Are you sure that this was just released ? I am almost certain I had copied this off the web about 2 years ago. I had a mysterious wipe of my system that occured about 8-12months ago and lost all my research docs. pics and videos. I could be wrong but If I recall correctly it was something i pulled off of the memory-hole website. I may have a hard copy still. i'll look. I have no idea why it would matter if this was out 2years ago or a couple months. Curious mostly I reckon.

Professional I didn't know how valuable or sensitive the information was that i had been gathering it wasnt until after my system was wiped that I realized the info I had collected wasnt always readily available. back then most of the time I had either figured that it was all crap that was not really important or was common knowledge. I really regret not recognizing the importance of what i had been collecting. Live and learn- hopefully. I now have back ups but not really sure how to go about encrypting items.

I'm wondering if the decision about not releasing this Sept 21 PDB is really just about hidding the fact that there was no 9/11 link with Saddam.

I mean, most people assume it by now.

Why insistently refuse to declassify what people already assume?

Is it in fact because Saddam had successfuly penetrated al-Qaeda or other Mid Eastern intelligence agency and got the whole 9/11 attacks' blueprints? ... And may have warned the USA?
