Hey, it’s “Ignored ‘Bin Laden determined to strike’ Day”!

Not as important as Hiroshima Day, granted, but we can’t let the 7th anniversary of Ignored “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US” PDB Day go by without a word or two (hat-tip DailyKos).

Yep, it’s seven years since Bush, vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, TX, was warned in his President’s Daily Briefing “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” that Al Qaeda was busy planning attacks from inside the USA. How did the good ol’ Commander in Chief respond? With another month of joggin’, golf, readin’, potterin’ ’round on the ranch … heck, what do you expect a President to do?

And what better way to celebrate than to find Osama bin Laden’s driver guilty of “supporting terrorism”.

Well, what else can you do when the man himself remains at liberty? Which is quite something when you consider that the resources spent trying to find him would keep a small country going for a year or two.

Though the US government probably sees the failure of the main conspiracy charges as a bit of a set-back.

Also, it’s not as though the rest of the civilised world is going to regard a trial that violates accepted prohibitions on the use of coerced evidence and  retroactive criminal laws as much more than a kangaroo court. Gives kangaroos a bad name you could say.

Trust you enjoyed “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US” PDB Day, Dubya!

    Completely the reverse, Andrew. 😉

    Not to get all conspiracy theorist and all, but it’s obvious that the Bush administration, actually hasn’t been too worried with unraveling the truth behind 9/11. I just can’t figure out why.

    If the 9-11 Commission is really looking for a smoking gun, it should look no further than at Lieutenant-General Mahmoud Ahmad, the director of the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) at the time.

    In early October 2001, Indian intelligence learned that Mahmoud had ordered flamboyant Saeed Sheikh – the convicted mastermind of the kidnapping and killing of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl – to wire US$100,000 from Dubai to one of hijacker Mohamed Atta’s two bank accounts in Florida.

    A juicy direct connection was also established between Mahmoud and Republican Congressman Porter Gross and Democratic Senator Bob Graham. They were all in Washington together discussing Osama bin Laden over breakfast when the attacks of September 11, 2001, happened.

    Mahmoud’s involvement in September 11 might be dismissed as only Indian propaganda. But Indian intelligence swears by it, and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has confirmed the whole story: Indian intelligence even supplied Saeed’s cellular-phone numbers. Nobody has bothered to check what really happened. The 9-11 Commission should pose very specific questions about it to FBI director Robert Mueller when he testifies this month.
