The man should be in jail. He should have lots of friends in there with him, too. Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, for starters...
so, strictly speaking, Bush was correct even according to the official story.
But Frank Luntz or whoever obviously told him to say "organized plot" instead of "conspiracy".
Any attempts to play "gotcha" with Dubya's almost use of "conspiracy" is a total waste of time and energy and shows complete ignorance of the word's meaning.
No one who understands the meaning of the word would dispute that 9/11 was a conspiracy. Where the disagreement lies is in who the "evildoers" behind that particular conspiracy were.
Bush's "gaffe" was tantamount to his saying "Bible" instead of "Scripture" (or, heaven forbid, "country" instead of "Homeland."
Not wanting to necessarily use the word conspiracy because of the connotations, but to play devil's advocate...
If multiple people plan a criminal act, isn't that kinda by definition a conspiracy to commit said act?
Nothing more. You sound like a conspiracy theorist.
making something out of this reminds me of rightwing attacks on Obama that simply don't make any sense.
...www.911independentcommission.org/questions.html (for example) and answer the questions posed by the 9/11 families. when you have done that we can see if your anti-conspiracy attitude is worth a damn. let's see how much sense you make.
no matter what theory you believe because it was not carried out by one person.
How the hell did he ever get to be POTUS?
This seems to be in reference to the follow-up explosion in West, Texas, before people knew if it was an industrial accident, or malicious act, like the Boston Marathon bombing.
There's more than one word in the dictionary that starts with 'Co'.
Yeah, just ask the Pentagon with 40 minutes notice. Billions on DEFENSE, but they failed miserably, and no one wants any explanation.
Sorry, but I know German, and that word homeland smacks of Heimat which is OK in German but which in English has uncomfortable, NAZI associations.
Why do they use that term? It was never used when I was growing up.
It seems to have been brought in during the Rove/Cheney/Bush period. I don't like it at all.
The neocon PNAC crowd brought it in. It sure does smack of their fascist roots.
That is some sort of racist nazi Texas term; but I don't use it. No one should. Maybe in his mind; bush lives in the "Homeland"; but the rest of us are United States Citizens. Of course in bush's Universe; he is a great hero; and a great President. Some sort of Parallel world.
He took us to war against Iraq with having any.
The problem is that "conspiracy" is a radioactive word. He was smart to catch himself.
I realized this man was an idiot during the 2000 republican convention, so I have zero interest in watching him speak at any length.
worse orator than this guy. I have never seen anyone run for dogcatcher who is this impaired - in every sense - publically.
