GOP insider: 9/11 fit White House plan
The attacks of 9/11 fit in well with a White House plan for war against Iraq, says a former speechwriter
for George H.W. Bush in a scathing denunciation of the current Bush administration.
In his book, "Invasion of the Party Snatchers: How the holy rollers and neo-cons destroyed the GOP"
[Sourcebooks, 2007], Victor Gold says the war hawks around Bush were highly motivated to arrange a
pretext for war and drew comparisons to the use of the explosion on the Maine to instigate the Spanish-American
war and President Lyndon Johnson's use of a minor incident in the Gulf of Tonkin to escalate the Vietnam conflict
into full-blown war.
Gold, a Goldwater conservative, does not directly accuse the neo-cons of complicity in the attacks of 9/11, but he leaves the reader
in little doubt about his suspicions.
