Still Justifying After All These Years


Let's all have a big round of applause for the Department of Defense, winner of this month's really bad taste prize!

Check out the Veterans' Day messages from Iraq, taped by the D.O.D., featuring WTC replicas in the back -- as if anybody still believes Saddam had anything to do with 9/11.

Here's a more realistic picture. I particularly liked the bit about how Sarin nerve gas, at the time it was created, in the early 90s, would've had a shelf-life of two months. The analyst said it might not be safe to drink at this point, but it would no longer have the effect of active Sarin nerve gas. And there's much, much more, all of it debunking of Bush's lies and distortions about Saddam's capabilities in biological and nuclear weaponry.

At the same time, let us not be ignorant of the plain fact that every industrial nation is capable of manufacturing poison gases in their chemical plants, and that the minimum involvement in nuclear arms in Iraq is more extensive than the popular media usually admits. See

When you saw the towers coming down, did you think maybe our middle east policy needed revision?

Me too.

Really, Crid? When I saw them coming down, I thought "Holy shit, that's fucking horrible."

Politics didn't enter the equation until quite a bit later.

Naw, when thousands die in a single stroke, I gotta wonder why.

Didn't everyone make that same mistake with Oklahoma City too?

It was a mistake to wonder why it happened?

I'll post something tomorrow that dispels the notion that we're to blame for 9/11 terrorism...from a Muslim who trained with Al Quaeda.

no, it was a mistake to assume it had anything to do with 'Middle East' anything

Absolutely true! It was a mistake made by millions that went on for several hours with virtually no consequences, and it was understandable. Two years earlier an American office building had been attacked by Middle Eastern terrorists, as it would be again six years later. It would have been great if Clinton had changed our policies after the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center.
