In the article Paulson says it never actually happened?

Hoosiermama, ping to post; see FR mail.
The 1st WTC bombing was an attack against the economy and was proceeded by an orchestrated recession.

Just curious, what happens if Russia and China calls in their debt over Ukraine dust up and is there now a threat of a major terrorist attack with this missing plane?

In the article Paulson says it never actually happened?Correct. It never happened. Further, it was supposed to be a deal between Russia and China alone - so I don't see how American officials, regardless of party, would be involved in it. Unless the implication is that the Democrats are actually in the pay of Russia. Which could be.
Did you mean preceded?
I don’t care what the mozzies do with that stolen Boeing 777, as long as they fill it with gasoline and crash it onto McCain.
I believe the democrats were complicit in this in some way as their ‘October surprise’.
