There is a growing public outcry for justice in the Bush administration’s use of torture and the breaking of long-standing laws preventing “man’s inhumanity to man.”
Many of us are still wondering how Bush & Co. got away with what they did to Valerie Plame Wilson – blowing her cover as a covert CIA operative. Cheney’s loyal lieutenant Lewis “Scooter” Libby was as high as the punishment went, when the whole damn bunch should have been frog-marched to justice. There’s a movie coming out about all this, “Fair Game,” based on Plame Wilson’s book. Let’s hope it opens some eyes. In the meantime, her husband, former Ambaassador Joseph Wilson IV says Cheney is a hypocrite for wanting certain torture memos declassified to prove his point, while refusing to release secret memos denied the CIA leak investigation (LINK).
Then, there’s 9/11. The conspiracy theorists will never give up on this, continually knocking the scab off one of our deepest wounds. There’s a guy out in Oklahoma giving it his heartfelt best, trying to prove that the recent cancellation of a scheduled Oklahoma University speaker is all part of the great “9/11 conspiracy.” (LINK)
This determined soul contends that CIA agent Michael Scheuer, described in the speech promo as "the long-time chief of the Bin Laden tracking center," was canceled for a reason. The writer asserts that OU president David Boren, a former U.S. Senator with “many ties to the CIA,” was somehow connected to that old story that bin Laden met with a CIA agent while being treated at an American hospital in Dubai in July 2001. At the time that story was reported in Le Figaro in France, a United Press International story (LINK) revealed the CIA had denied all this as “absolute nonsense.” Will we ever know everything behind what happened on that fateful day? Probably not. The story, like the JFK assassination, has taken its place in the conspiracy theory hall of fame.
I contend that there is something else left over from the Bush administration – something that continues nagging at my mind – which could have been more egregious than any of these occurrences – real or imagined.
A more egregious crime as defined by this country’s laws.
This claim is not that of a conspiracy theorist. I plow through many reliable sources and tons of documentation to back up my conclusions.
As early as 2002, just months after 9/11, I began to detect a PATTERN in the actions of the Bush administration. In almost every instance of breaking stories which were “bad news” for the Bush White House, there was an accompanying “terror alert.” I contended at the time these alerts were aimed at fearmongering and diverting publlc attention. I began to document these occurrences and relayed them in several blog posts.
After about five years of this pattern – ignored by the public and the MSM - one person dared to make it very public. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann began to take a serious look at some undeniable facts.
Relying heavily on Olbermann’s transcripts, in June of 2007, I gathered together information – his and mine - for a post on my “I See My Dreams” blog. At that time, there was no evidence that anyone bothered to read the post. Too long.
If an American president continually attempted to frighten Americas, feeling very vulnerable after 9/11, just to cover his ass, that, in my opinion, is a crime which must not be forgotten.
As layers of subterfuge and secrecy are peeled away, things which seem unreasonable become plausible.
The following post is an investment in time, perhaps about 30 minutes, but if you, dear reader, have any doubts about this claim, read the facts for yourself – and for your country:
