PBS video What Laurie Mylroie stated before and after 9/11
PBS Charlie Rose ^ | 11/30/07

Posted on 12/31/2007 2:05:30 PM PST by april15Bendovr

If you have the time these two interviews with Laurie Mylroie on Charlie Rose PBS program are very interesting. When Bill Clinton's name is brought up in the 2002 video Charlie Rose gets very uncomfortable? wonder why.

Compare and contrast the statements of Laurie Mylroie before and after 9/11.

Charlie Rose: October 10, 1994 57 min - Feb 20, 2007

Charlie Rose: January 30, 2002 56 min 54 sec - Mar 7, 2007

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-643948367541268187&q=laurie+mylroie&total=4&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=3

Laurie Mylroie earned her doctorate in Government from Harvard University, with a specialization in the Middle East. She also studied Arabic in Egypt, at the American University in Cairo, and has traveled extensively in the Middle East.

Dr. Mylroie taught in the Department of Government at Harvard as an Assistant Professor, and later became an Associate Professor in the Strategy Department of the U.S. Naval War College. She served as the advisor on Iraq to the 1992 Clinton Presidential campaign and personally briefed the candidate on that issue. She was also a Research Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Her subscription internet list service, “Iraq News,” has provided comprehensive news coverage about Iraq since 1997. Mylroie's articles have appeared in The American Spectator, Atlantic Monthly, Commentary, Los Angeles Times, The New Republic, New York Times, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and other journals. She has been called to testify before several Congressional committees, including the 9-11 Commission.

You can fast forward to the end of the 2002 video. Just click and drag the time bar next to the pause button to the right until you get to Laurie Mylroie.

Why don't you post some times for the interesting parts, instead of making everybody guess?

Fast forwarding "to the end of the 2002 video" doesn't make sense. (the video stops at the end).

sheesh.

Its really worth watching. She makes the connections between both 1993 and 9/11 2001 bombings of the WTC to Iraq.

She describes why the CIA and the State Department (Clintonistas) were uncomfortable going after Saddam just for Terrorism due to protecting Clinton's incompetence fighting the war on terrorism.

Save this for when you do have time if you cant watch today.

Do Democrats Really Want Us to Fail in Iraq?

I posted these videos to define what the Democrats were up to before and after 9/11 as explained by Doctor Laurie Mylroie.

I read her book The War Against America (many years ago now it seems) and she does make a compelling case that circumstantially links Iraq to the first WTC attack. It does seem that some of Yousef’s travel documents could have only really been provided by the Iraqis. As for the Clinton admin not wanting to really deal with terrorism, huh!, no one who worked in Washington during those years needs to be told about that. Calling Clinton “pathetic” on terrorism would be too complimentary.

(I haven’t watched the links yet but thanks for posting them. I think I saw one of those shows the night it was on.)

Thank you for your input.

Its interesting to see the Democrats drag their feet on supporting the war in Iraq. Doctor Laurie Mylroie explained well when interviewed many of the reasons why U.S. government agencies might be our own worst nightmare at getting at the truth about 9/11 when they were supposed to inform the 9/11 Commission, Senate Select Intelligence Committee and Iraq Study Group corrections.

Asking the State Dept and CIA Clintanistas to testify before these 9/11-Iraq committees is almost hilarious as the U.N. asking Iran to sit on the Human Rights Council.

Her 2003 Bush vs the Beltway: How the CIA and the State Department Tried to Stop the War on Terror is also an excellent book. I read the The War on America as well. Mylroie knows what she is talking about. I wish more people would be aware of what she is saying.

"Mylroie knows what she is talking about. I wish more people would be aware of what she is saying."

Your right

I wish people payed more attention to what she is saying rather than what I have to say.

People can learn a lot from her. I shouldn't have to define her in sound bites. Sometimes there is a desire for instant gratification when people could be doing more on their own to learn about her role.

“Compare and contrast the statements of Laurie Mylroie before and after 9/11.”

Usually that means watch the video and share ideas about how the two videos are perceived.

Free Republic is not always just about providing info. Its also about sharing ideas.

I will take heat for stating the “2nd video starts towards the end” when I really meant was 3/4 of the way. MY-bad for not being explicit.

Laurie Mylorie and Peter Lance. Following the same path!

Others too have information to share with Americans.

Check out Peter Lance who's written several books about it all including his latest Triple Cross: How bin Laden's Master Spy Penetrated the CIA, the Green Berets, and the FBI--and Why Patrick Fitzgerald Failed to Stop Him.

Basically it seems, no real mystery, just federal employees screwing up and covering up and covering up. Mr. Lance names them and why. I'm waiting for the blow up.

It took years to get any truth about Ruby Ridge and Waco -- Americans who demanded the truth were ridiculed and threatened but they hung in there.

Imagine what federal employees (elected, appointed, and civil service) will do to keep the lid on the WTC bombing, 9/11 -- as bad as Ruby Ridge and Waco were the cover up here is enough the shake Washington like nothing before. IMO.

“In his foreword, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey supports Mylroie’s assertions that during the early 1990’s, the U.S. government shifted from viewing terrorism as a tool used by governments to a practice engaged in by smaller fringe networks. This change led U.S. officials to go after the individuals responsible for the first World Trade Center attack while overlooking the fact that those men appeared to have extensive contacts with Iraqi intelligence. But here, Mylroie traces the actions of Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the bombing, who remained at large until a botched attempt to down a dozen U.S. planes two years later. In reviewing Yousef’s phone calls before the bombing, false passports and escape patterns, Mylroie finds ties to Iraq at every turn. Could it be that he was acting alone, out of his own hatred for America, or was the Iraqi government, and Saddam Hussein in particular, supporting Yousef in what was once the most ambitious terrorist attack on U.S. soil?”

She talks about former CIA Director R. James Woolsey supporting her opinions in the 2002 interview

She was as tough about saddam in 1995 as in 2002. She knew in 1995 if we didn't take him out we'd be attacked again and he'd go after the WTC.

I believe saddam was part of the bombing in OKC.

It's YOUR thread. Feel free to be as clear or obtuse as you want. BUT here's a hint... asking people to watch 2 hours of video to see "something", without explaining what/why, is a thread killer IMHO.

Doctor Mylroie is very friendly with the FR community.

http://www.lauriemylroie.com/

Doctor Mylroie has a link to FR JVeritas work, and FR Ikez78 website “Regime of Terror” along with my video Salman Pak: Saddam’s Al Qaeda Connection. She is very good about responding to email.

Here is a list of her articles and interviews

I think the overarching lesson I’ve taken from her, Woolsey and others is that rogue nations will use cutout groups like al Qaeda, Hezbollah, etc., to do their bidding—and of course they would gladly give such groups nukes if they had them, not just passports and safe transit and bases of operation. This is the reality we face when contemplating a Saddam or Kim Jong Il or the mullahs in Iran. But until this is the starting point for the discussion here in the US, well, I don’t think we’ll get very far toward the goal of winning. In fact, given the state of the electoral process right now, I would think we’re about to start losing this war—again.

That was clintoos deal...OKCB...and TWA800...cover up so he'd not have to deal with the country/countries that trained and financed terrorist to attack America.
