Updated Griffin Article on Possible Motives of the Bush Administration

Possible Motives Of The Bush Administration - By Dr. David Ray Griffin

The article is broken into the following sections:

  • The 9/11 Attacks As "Opportunities"
  • "A New Pearl Harbor" To Advance The Pax Americana
  • Generating Funds For The US Space Command
  • The Plan To Attack Afghanistan
  • The Plan To Attack Iraq

And here is a quick sample from 'The Plan to Attack Afghanistan':

In any case, there was still further evidence, ignored by the Commission, that the US war against the Taliban was related more to the pipeline project than to 9/11. For one thing, President Bush's special envoy to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad (mentioned previously as a member of PNAC), and the new Prime Minister, Hamid Karzai, were previously on Unocal's payroll. As Chalmers Johnson wrote: "The continued collaboration of Khalilzad and Karzai in post-9/11 Afghanistan strongly suggests that the Bush administration was and remains as interested in oil as in terrorism in that region."43 As early as October 10, moreover, the US Department of State had informed the Pakistani Minister of Oil that "in view of recent geopolitical developments," Unocal was again ready to go ahead with the pipeline project.44 Finally, as one Israeli writer put it: "If one looks at the map of the big American bases created, one is struck by the fact that they are completely identical to the route of the projected oil pipeline to the Indian Ocean."45

This isn't a new article, but has had a few formatting tweaks, and is worth mentioning again.
