Reminder: Porter Goss bragged about having an "excellent idea" of OBL's
whereabouts...

http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/06/20/goss.bin.laden /

But, gosh, gee whillikers, we can't do anything about it. (sound of hands wringing)

Particularly not while we're busy waging a war in a country that didn't have jack diddly flip flop flamhitzdoodle to do with the attacks, now, right?

Hmmm. Anyone want to speculate on whether the Bush administration gets asked why, if the head of our intelligence agency had an "excellent idea" of where the head of Al Qaeda was up until three weeks ago, nothing was done? And whether or not doing something about it could have prevented these attacks?

6. Has Goss been waiting for this attack to announce UBL in Iran?
What they say has no credibility.

Remember Rumsfeld telling us they knew exactly where Iraq's WMDs were? That was a bald-faced lie.

Scott Ridder said the neocons wanted to attack Iran sometime after June. I hope such a move is even too insane for even them to carry out. But the London bombing is exactly the kind of event they would want to "justify" attacking whomever they wanted to attack next. It also obviously takes people's minds off the many embarrassing stories about the Bush misadministration and helps them "justify" more Patriot Act (sic) type crap.

5. But Bush has told us that he already had his accountability moment.
In November, 2004, the people showed that they approve of his conduct. He now has the right to act with impunity. This includes the right of members of his administration to "catapult the propaganda."

Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 07:34 PM by chimpsrsmarter
even if he could find him i don't think it would make any difference at all except maybe for the families of 9/11 victims and for them i hope that if he is found it will help.
