I’m still confused as to who, why, where and WHEN did Iraq become the world headquarters of Terrorism?
Apparently the Bush administration used some hillbillies warped knowledge of the “War against Terrorism” and the “War over oil” and came up with this plan of action for their own personal Marketing scheme…
Hey, if the Bush Administration isn’t some of the best Marketers in America (actually, the world – obviously) then I don’t know who is? They’ve somehow twisted the War in Afghanistan and the War in Iraq as being one in the same… now we all knew Bush wanted to go to Iraq, invade and get their Oil but NEVER did they mention Terrorists during that time. They claimed there was “Weapons of Mass Destruction”!
But somehow they’ve literally gotten our nation to completely forget about the TERRORISTS IN AFGHANISTAN (where they were all along) and have now made the War against Terrorism’s new home Iraq. Odd aint it? But the greatest part is: MOST AMERICANS BELIEVE THIS HYPE!
But then again… most Americans believe driving to McDonals, waiting in line and driving back home (15+ minutes total) is quicker than making Meals. This is the same America that buys more Diet Crap than any other Country in the world so they can justify eating McDonalds and not cooking a 15 minute meal. This is the same America who buys into latest fads quicker than any other country on earth, period.
Why is the average American so naive? What ever happened to thinking for yourself … thinking clearly … not following the other sheep … being your own man/woman … not falling for political garbage … cheap gas prices … days where it has been years since you heard about terrorists … watching T.V. without hearing how 5 Americans were blown up in a country they don’t belong in …
At approximately 8:48 a.m. on the morning of September 11, 2001, the first pictures of the burning World Trade Center were broadcast on live television. The news anchors, reporters, and viewers had little idea what had happened in lower Manhattan, but there were some people who did know. By that time, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the National Military Command Center, the Pentagon, the White House, the Secret Service, and Canada’s Strategic Command all knew that three commercial airplanes had been hijacked. They knew that one plane had been flown deliberately into the World Trade Center’s North Tower; a second plane was wildly off course and also heading toward Manhattan; and a third plane had abruptly turned around over Ohio and was flying back toward Washington, DC.
So why, at 9:03 a.m.—fifteen minutes after it was clear the United States was under terrorist attack—did President Bush sit down with a classroom of second-graders and begin a 20-minute pre-planned photo op? No one knows the answer to that question. In fact, no one has even asked Bush about it.
Bush’s actions on September 11 have been the subject of lively debate, mostly on the internet. Details reported that day and in the week after the attacks—both the media reports and accounts given by Bush himself—have changed radically over the past 18 months. Culling hundreds of reports from newspapers, magazines, and the internet has only made finding the “truth” of what happened and when it happened more confusing. In the changed political climate after 9/11, few have dared raise challenging questions about Bush’s actions. A journalist who said Bush was “flying around the country like a scared child, seeking refuge in his mother’s bed after having a nightmare” and another who said Bush “skedaddled” were fired. [Washington Post, 9/29/01 (B)] We should have a concise record of where President Bush was throughout the day the US was attacked, but we do not.
