The following should not be mistaken for anything other than 3am, post-beer paranoia.
Follow the bouncing ball:
- The reason that the assorted US intelligence agencies (primarily the CIA) failed to notice the 9/11 attacks being plotted was, in my opinion, because far too many CIA operatives consider the ex-Mujahadeen that make up Al Qaeda’s organizational base to be their “old Afghan buddies” from the days when they were working together against the Soviets.
- There has not been, and likely never will be, a purge of the personnel in the intelligence services responsible for point #1.
- We are current irrecovably committed to a war for the purpose of removing…Osama bin Laden’s second-most-important regional enemy.
- Ergo…”Operation Iraqi Freedom” is aiding and abetting Al Qaeda.
Have a nice war!
