Hard to stomach... (english)
23 Mar 2003
Was the CIA invovled in 9/11?
There are several things that don't add up- I am not sure I am convinced that the CIA was involved, but...

1. During the beginning of the Bush presidency, there was an internal struggle between the realists (Powell, Rice) and the hawks (Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Perle, etc...). The hawks had been unsuccessful in trying to convince the first Bush presidency that preemption should be the US foreign policy - and they weren't having much luck - until 9/11.

Powell did score a victory for moderate republicans when he kept Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz (please read the Neo-Reaganite Doctrine) from going after Iraq right away (he knew that it wouldn't gain any international support, because Clinton had wanted to go after Iraq, and couldn't gain enough support). Instead he said to oust the Afghani regeme... in a means to appease the hawks, and the American public.

9/11 came at a crucial time for the hawks... they were about to loose the foreign policy debate until it happened.

2. Osama Bin Laden has always claimed responsibility for all terrorist attacks carried out by Al Qaeda under his command- but he said that he didn't know who it was, and applauded their actions (it is a well-known fact that Bin Laden was at one time a CIA operative, as well as Saddam Hussein). Odd how Al Qaeda operatives could have carried out such a mission without the knowledge of the leaders of the organization. We still don't know if Bin Laden was directly involved.

3. how much flight training did these hijackers have? was it enough to fly a commercial airliner with extreme accuracy into both towers? Reports say they had maybe a few weeks of training...

4. Read the Neo-Reaganite Doctrine or The Liberty Doctrine. This states a foreign policy to promote "freedom" and "democracy" abroad - by any means necessary. Also- the 1992 report that was leaked to the press written by then and now deputy defense secretary Wolfowitz - almost verbatim to the Bush Doctrine.

on a side note: The Bush doctrine is a big reason (whether the protesters know it or not) why there is so much objection to this war. People saw that it was the controversial Wolfowitz report (which was a major embarrassment to the first Bush administration) and went "hold on a minute... preemption? "

It is not beneath the CIA to carry out such an atrocity on the American people, but it would be a very sad day if this were to be true.

I have not been able to get any info from my sources in the CIA, but their silence only leads me to believe that something is very seriously wrong.

-I will keep everyone posted if this story develops... I am not a conspiracy theorist, just a questioning citizen.
