How in the hell is this not reported on? I’ve spent too much of my time learning about the WOT just as a concerned citizen and this appears nowhere to my knowledge. UBL, as Commander-in-Chief, of the Taliban government would have made headlines in any honest reporters’ mind.
Of course it would. And the fact that a lone wire service (UPI) picked up on it while the rest of the lamestream media chose to ignore it speaks volumes.
There were plenty of signs that something sinister was in the works, and had it not been for the following lethal combination of factors, 9/11 might have possibly been prevented:
a.) Jamie Gorelick and her abysmal ‘wall’ that prevented our law enforcement and intelligence agencies from effectively sharing vital data which could identify and apprehend terrorist elements operating within the United States.
b.) Al Gore and his joke of a commission on ‘Air Security’, his little commission actually recommended major enhancements for the industry, but after enough whining about the ‘cost’ of such enhancements, plus a nice whopping donation to the DNC from the airline lobbyists, the commission’s findings were watered down to the point of being essentially meaningless.
c.) John F’in Kerry’s passing the buck when his office was PERSONALLY CONTACTED by FAA security officials in the Spring of 2001 who were stymied and frustrated by the failure of the FAA Inspector General to address their specific concerns regarding the lack of security at Boston’s Logan Airport. The security officials informed Kerry that Logan was a terrorist hijacking just waiting to happen due to the minimal and incompetent security at that facility. They offered to fly to Washington (from their homes in Texas, they had retired) on their *own dime* to testify in front of Kerry’s committee, Kerry’s office informed them that such testimony wouldn’t be “effective” as they were not actually constituents of Kerry, and Kerry’s office forwarded their ‘concerns’ to who else? You got it, the Inspector General’s office at the FAA that had already shuffled the reports of inadequate security at Logan from one desk to another, doing NOTHING to correct those deficiencies.
Add to the above three factors Emperor Billigula’s predilection to treat terrorist attacks as ‘law enforcement’ issues instead of the military attacks that they were, and it’s no wonder that 3000+ Americans died on 9/11 thanks to the malfeasance, incompetence and some say *treason* of elected officials who screwed the pooch and effectively did nothing to prevent those attacks from taking place.
