'One of the most explosive US political corruption scandals in decades' - Not Quite
The big story of the night is Jack Abramoff's guilty plea which is consistently being referred to as the largest political scandal of our generation by the mainstream media.
Now the question is, how deep will this investigation really be? And does his corruption even compare to the corruption surrounding this administration and 9/11? Are they in any way tied?
Just a few quick searches of 9/11, Abramoff, and heroin will yield a few nights worth of research, is there any chance these things might come out?
Osama Bin Laden, Mohamed Atta, and Abramoff - Wikipedia
In 1995 Abramoff worked for the Global Council of Islamic Banks, whose chairman, Saleh Abdullah Kamel, was under investigation for alleged funding of terrorism, including Osama Bin Laden. 
Prior to the events of September 11th, 2001 chief hijacker Mohamed Atta and several of the other 9/11 hijackers were reported to have made multiple visits to the SunCruz casino cruise ship off the Gulf coast in Florida.  This has led some to speculate that Mohamed Atta was using the casino to launder money for al-Qaeda and that possibly Atta was involved in a scheme with Abramoff and the mob to smuggle heroin.  To date none of these allegations has been confirmed or investigated.
Like Iran Contra, it is too big to ever be allowed to break. It involves, as we will see, virtually the whole apparatus of America's secret government. And it leads to places that have nothing to do with Abramoff's 'cover' as a 'College Republican leader' turned 'big money lobbyist.'
Exposure would open up what Sen. Fulbright once famously called, referring to the Bay of Pigs/JFK assassination, 'An endless can of worms.'
I've always found madcowprod.com articles to be a bit hard to follow, perhaps because I haven't read many of their articles, but they and others contend that Abramoff had ties to 9/11.
So, what ties are there, and what are the chances these ties will come to light? Perhaps over the next few days we can help unearth a good set of simple questions for Abramoff and the MSM. Perhaps once he is behind bars we can get some real answers.
