25. LIHOP versus MIHOP
Now that I understand what LIHOP and MIHOP mean, I believe in LIHOP at the very least; I also think there's strong evidence to up the ante to MIHOP. I think the corporate whores that run this country and the weirdos that work for them are capable of virtually ANYTHING. Witness Bill Gates' endless assault on consumers, his willingness to blackmail schools and on and on. Consider the bloody deeds that resulted after Big Business launched the Spanish American war and Chilean coup. Or consider the post-9/11 anthrax attacks.

One problem with LIHOP is that there was an awful lot going on to leave to chance - attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and a possible attack on the White House. If they simply let it happen, then they were probably in control to such a degree that they might as well have planned it.

There were simply too many things going on to leave to chance.

One of the biggest problems with all this LIHOP/MIHOP stuff is that no one has spilled the beans. You'd think a conspiracy of this magnitude would touch many people, some of whom would come forward due to a guilty conscience, after being double-crossed, a touch of patriotism or humanity, etc.

But who came forward and fessed up after the Spanish American War? Vietnam? For that matter, who has spilled the beans about the corporate takeover of public education, one of the biggest scandals (and conspiracies) in American history?

Here's another thought: Conspirators obviously have to limit their numbers. This may have a negative impact on some of their operations. For example, if they could have solicited input from 1,000 experts, someone might have said, "Make sure George W. Bush looks surprised and concerned when Andrew Card tells him what he already knows on 9/11."

Instead, a small group of handlers stupidly told him to look completely unruffled. The stories about the magic terrorist's passport and the bar-hopping terrorists were other glitches. I think some of the chinks in this story may be seen as the result of limited intelligence caused by too few chefs in the corporate kitchen.
