August 11, 2011 "Daily Beast (external - login to view)" - -With the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks (external - login to view) only a month away, former CIA Director George Tenet and two former top aides are fighting back hard against allegations that they engaged in a massive cover-up in 2000 and 2001 to hide intelligence from the White House and the FBI that might have prevented the attacks.
The source of the explosive, unproved allegations is a man who once considered Tenet a close friend: former White House counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke (external - login to view), who makes the charges against Tenet and the CIA in an interview for a radio documentary timed to the 10th anniversary next month. Portions of the Clarke interview were made available to The Daily Beast by the producers of the documentary.
In the interview for the documentary, Clarke offers an incendiary theory that, if true, would rewrite the history of the 9/11 attacks, suggesting that the CIA intentionally withheld information from the White House and FBI in 2000 and 2001 that two Saudi-born terrorists were on U.S. soil – terrorists who went on to become suicide hijackers on 9/11.

Isn't this or something like this what many of us "suspected" from the onset.??? Loyalties, patriotism and other such honorable feelings aside.........it is wise to NEVER TAKE WHAT THE USG SAYS as the unvarnished truth. What we were told about 9-11 was probably a good percentage fiction. The reasons for the wars that followed on cue were based on more fiction......only the rich and pwerful know for sure and they ain't talking. How OBL was handled , the timing of "locating" him and how it all went down in that ugly UNCIVILIZED wa;y.... and with the almost immediate body dumping at sea. (sleep with the fishes .......has more dignity and poetry to it than what the US did. Then comes a chopper explosion that just happens to be carrying the same seals that slaughtered OBL at close range in front of his kids and family.....
If anyone takes any of the "G" explanations for any of these events starting with 9-11 at face value .......might want to do a serious re-think and consider how the gov't has duped the people that were already brainwashed ...to accept what ever is stuffed down their throat repetatively until their brains are completely programmed.
We are NOT talking conspiracy theories in the way folks throw those terms around with such disdain. We are talking what is truly possible and plausible. Somewhere, there are folks that KNOW the truth , If they have not met with their own demise.
