The Bush Administration came into office wanting to go to war with Iraq.
Former Secretary of Treasury Paul O’Neill said that Saddam was “topic A” ten days after the inauguration at the very first National Security Council meeting, and eight months before 9/11. According to O’Neill, “it was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this.’”In a 2007 interview with former Counterterrorism “tsar” Richard Clarke, he states that between March 2001 and May 2001,members of the Bush Administration discussed creating a “casus belli” for war with Iraq - “casus belli” is “an event or action that justifies or allegedly justifies a war or conflict. As we all know after trillions are spent on this war the premise to find Weapons of mass Destruction in Iraq were unfounded - they never found any.
In the months leading up to 9/11, there was an unprecedented amount of warnings that “Al-Qaeda” was about to conduct an attack.
One of those warnings came in the form of a Presidential Daily Briefing entitled, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” that was initially hidden by the White House.On the day of the attacks Bush was told about the second plane crash into the WTC and continued to sit in a Florida school classroom and hear a story about a pet goat for at least seven more minutes. It was a bizarre reaction for a president.
9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said, “By the way, there’s a credible case that the president’s own negligence prior to 9/11 at least in part contributed to the disaster in the first place.
"You knew they were in the United States. You were warned by the CIA. You knew in July they were inside the United States. You were told again by briefing officers in August that it was a dire threat. And what did you do? Nothing, so far as we could see on the 9/11 Commission.”FACT 4 Building 7 - a controlled demolition
Lessons from History?
Hilter used the burning of the Reichstag (parliment in berlin) to essentially secure the Nazi party's position into power by convincing people he needed to use emergency powers to restore the nation against the communists - it worked, from this "enabling act" both the population and parliment believed Hitler needed to weed out the communists who caused the fire.
