Why Didn't Jayson Blair Ever Push THIS As One Of His Stories?
A new report leaked today finds Bush "uniquely qualified and positioned to coordinate, facilitate, benefit from, and cover up" the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Senate debating impeachment proceedings.

To utter the unthinkable puts people's minds immediately on the defensive. Let us begin by considering that the unthinkable is not impossible.

The attacks of 9/11 were the best thing to happen to Bush. Before the attacks: he was a joke, with low approval ratings, and comments about his record number of vacation days. His involvement in Enron, Harken, and other corporate scandals was making headlines. After the attacks: consistent ratings, unchallenged and unprecedented consolidation of power, and comfortable insulation from criticism. Such a catastrophe had been requested by Bush's advisors within the Project for a New American Century. Bush was uniquely connected to commission the attacks, Bush selectively heeded or ignored the warnings, and he has since completely stifled any investigation of the attacks.

Members of the PNAC requested a catastrophe
"In other words, 9/11 turned out to be precisely the Pearl Harbor-like event that had been eerily predicted in the PNAC report of September 2000, "Rebuilding America's Defenses."

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor.

In open letters to Clinton, the group called for "the removal of Saddam Hussein's regime from power" and a shift toward a more assertive U.S. policy in the Middle East, including the use of force if necessary to unseat Saddam. The group predicted that the shift would come about slowly, unless there were "some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor." That event came on Sept. 11, 2001. By that time, Cheney was vice president, Rumsfeld was secretary of defense, and Wolfowitz his deputy at the Pentagon.

The next morning - before it was even clear who was behind the attacks - Rumsfeld insisted at a Cabinet meeting that Saddam's Iraq should be "a principal target of the first round of terrorism".

Bush uniquely connected to commission the attacks
Bush has a long family history of doing business with the bin Laden family.Robert Jordan, Bush's lawyer in the SEC investigation and current US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, along with James Baker (the man who was Bush's lawyer during the election of 2000) is currently representing the Saudi royal family AGAINST the families of the 9/11 victims.

Marvin Bush
George W. Bush's brother was on the board of directors of a company providing electronic security for the World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport and United Airlines, according to public records. The company was backed by an investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corp., also linked for years to the Bush family.

CIA and Bush Sr.
Adham has been "the CIA's principal liaison for the entire Middle East from the mid-1960's through 1979." He was also the head of intelligence for Saudi Arabia during the time George Bush Sr. was Director of the CIA.

bin Laden
Money connections between Bush Republicans and Osama bin Laden go way back and the political and economic connections have remained unbroken for 20 years.

Warnings Before The Attacks
For more than seven months FTW has been documenting specific warnings received by the U.S. government from both foreign intelligence services and, in one case, from Russian President Vladimir Putin, indicating commercial airliners were going to be used by terrorists to attack -- among other things -- the World Trade Center in the week of Sept. 9.

* Ashcroft
Ashcroft was traveling exclusively by leased jet aircraft instead of commercial airlines, the Justice Department cited what it called a "threat assessment" by the FBI, and said Ashcroft has been advised to travel only by private jet for the remainder of his term.

How could Bush claim to have seen the first plane hit the first tower long before any such TV footage was broadcast? Why did Dubya continue sitting with elementary school students after the second tower was hit and he'd been told, 'America is under attack' , when standard procedure for such a situation is to whisk the president away to safety? Unless -- and here is the nub -- unless he knew something more than we did that morning. As the Independent asked, 'What television station was HE watching?'.

James Baker was spending the day IN WASHINGTON WITH THE BIN LADEN FAMILY

Secretary of Treasury during Iran-Contra and the Chief of Staff during the Gulf War, James A. Baker now works as a lawyer and as Senior Counsel to The Carlyle Group, a Washington D.C. investment firm with extensive Saudi ties. James A. Baker watched the 9-11 attacks with the Bin Laden family and a former CIA director in Washington, D.C's Ritz-Carlton.

So Baker Botts, a law firm whose senior partner advises the nation on all matters of national security as well as a host of other spooky activities, is defending an individual and a kingdom that have been accused of being complicit in the funding of the attacks of the September 11th against the United States. But perhaps what is just as shocking to me is the allegation that the son of this SAME Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz was reportedly flown out of the United States when all other planes were grounded following the special orders of Bush's own father!-

His law firm, Baker & Botts, assists companies to get contracts for Caspian Sea oil. These require a pipeline through Afghanistan.

The Administration Continues to Stifle investigation
Vice President Richard Cheney called Senator Tom Daschle to insist there not be a Congressional investigation into apparent intelligence failures that lead to the Sept. 11 attacks.

The panel has until the end of May 2004 to complete its work, but it will spend the $3 million it was originally allotted by around August 2003 - if it doesn't get the supplement.

Unthinkable? Bush is the man who set a new record for killing people
Roughly one-third of all executions since 1976 have happened in Texas, and well more than half of those have taken place in the five years of Bush's term.
