1. I posted this on Bandar, on an earlier thread
(tin foil hat "on")

Very interesting, that in Bob Woodward's new book (see 60 Minutes this evening), he states that even before Colin Powell (and many others in the administration) was told about the decision to invade Iraq, Cheney and Rumsfeld briefed Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia about it, and provided him top secret documents that were specifically marked as "prohibited for viewing by foreigners".

I have questions:

1. Why was this allowed to take place, especially in view that most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis?

2. Why were the Saudis, when no other planes were allowed in the skies of the U.S. after the 9/11 attacks, allowed to fly around the country and pick up assorted Saudis, including the bin Laden family, and then spirit them out of the country, before the FBI had a chance to interview any of them? This question has not been properly asked by the 9/11 commission, nor answered by the administration, which leads me to conclude that the commission is simply a whitewash, formed to protect the administration.

The thing that is really scary, is that many top Dems have to be in on this too. Are they too scared to broach "certain questions" for fear of their lives (the anthrax killer is still on the loose), or are they actually in on it?

Frankly, I think this lends weight to the theory that certain high-level Saudis were in on the execution of the 9/11 atrocities, acting in concert with certain high-level U.S. administration operatives (Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Libby, Feith, and the rest of the PNAC neocons). And I'll bet anything that Sharon was also told.

Hundreds of millions in the world sit astonished at the stupidity and gullibility of people in the U.S. (you would be amazed to read commentary and news from other parts of the world on this subject, as I regularly do) that certain factions in our own government were/are allowed to have perpetuated 9/11, apparently, without retribution.

I think our democracy ended on 9/11, and I am no longer sure a change at the helm will bring it back. Even scarier, is that I am no longer sure these fascist neocons (remember, they have captured all branches of government now, and control the military) will relinquish control of our government in November, if they lose. What will they do between now and then, to keep the reins of power? If in fact they so willingly killed 3000 or so on 9/11, and tens of thousands since in Iraq and Afghanistan, what will they then capable of if they think they will lose control, and then perhaps be subject for prosecution for their crimes?

I think it would be a very smart thing, as the election nears, to prepare ourselves for the worst.
