Interesting, GOP has yelled at Obama for NOT wanting to spend money … or more appropriately, not wanting to follow its historic pattern of BORROW & SPEND and let the burden on future generations be damned.
Now we have an MI5 Spy Chief affirming what we knew at the time … Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.
To the contrary, Bin Laden was on record as say he wanted the Iraq government out – so that his al-Qaeda forces could get in … and George Bush, with the full unquestioning support of the GOP, was happy to do Bin Laden’s bidding.
On Tue Jul 20, Associated Press Writer David Stringer, reported: LONDON – The war in Iraq led to a loss of focus on the threat from al-Qaida, emboldened the group's leader Osama bin Laden, and helped to breed a generation of homegrown terrorists, Britain's former domestic spy chief told an inquiry Tuesday.
"There was no credible intelligence to suggest that connection and that was the judgment, I might say, of the CIA," said Eliza Manningham-Buller (director of the MI5 agency between 2002 and 2007), "It was not a judgment that found favor with some parts of the American machine."
Bush had no interest in Bin Laden – he is on record as declaring the al-Qaeda leader and his staff as irrelevant to his alleged “war on terror” – instead his sole objective was to use the destruction of the Trade Center as an excuse to invade Iraq and kill Saddam Hussein.
Don’t you just love it? Don’t you love the fact that, having doubled the National debt and plunged the nation into a Recession, matched only by what was called The Great Depression, Bush finds solace in boasting that there was no second attack. Like what could al-Qaeda do to top the destruction Bush was bringing to the nation – or, what could al-Qaeda do which would provide better recruitment? A failed attack would only hurt al-Qaeda, a successful attack? What target? It was long known that a strong wind was enough to distort the structure and freeze the Trade Center elevators … what other structure is know to be that vulnerable? What could top blowing a hole in the Pentagon? What? An attack on a copper statue? Crash into Miss Liberty and underscore the GOP hatred for immigrants? What does that achieve?
NOPE! The reality which was known at the time, and is now coming to light (if only for future discussion by historians interested in the demise of American), establishes clearly that THE MOST HARM TO THE MOST PEOPLE (Grand old) PARTY … be they having tea or not … is, will forever be, the most instrumental al-Qaeda tool for the end of America as a world leader and economic force.
AH the fun of it. It has taken over 40 years, but the HIPPIES cum YUPPIES are finally on the verge of getting what they called for … and it will be their money, and the wealth of the children their children have decided not to have, who are the recipients of their achieved desire.
No immigration … and there are no workers to pay taxes … no taxes no debt payment … and Greece becomes a feeble example of what America shall become … YEA GOP!
