They Let It Happen

Another piece of evidence that Bushco knew that terrorists were about to strike and did nothing about it - so Bush could get his war on Iraq:

Mohammed Atta and three other men who hijacked aircraft on September 11, 2001 were identified by the US Government as possible members of an al-Qaeda cell more than a year before the attacks, it was reported today.

A highly classified military intelligence unit prepared a chart showing likely al-Qaeda cells in the summer of 2000, which showed the names and photographs of the four men, according to The New York Times.

The secret military team, known as Able Danger, recommended that the identities of the four men be shared with the FBI and other parts of the military, but the recommendation was never taken up, according to a Republican Congressman, Curt Weldon, quoted by the newspaper.

Don't think anyone is surprised that Bush hid this info from the fake 9/11 Commission. Typical.

So, Chomsky and others have roundly criticized any opinion that Bushco had an active role in the 9/11 attacks. That sounds like a bit of a stretch to me, but even if you cann't buy into the fact that Bushco took an active role in conducting the 9/11 attacks, you have to concede, at a minimum, that they purposely let it happen.
