President George Bush must learn to connect the dots

"Had I known that the enemy was going to use airplanes to kill on that fateful morning, I would have done everything in my power to protect the American people."

President George Bush, May 17, 2002




If you read Friday's articles published by Liberal Slant then your head would spin as mine. Journalists William Pitt, Mike Hersh and Bridget Gibson they all finger the Bush administration as the main culprit for the faltering breaches in the US security leading to the 9/11 attacks.




I am not going to recount what these journalists are saying, but I am getting more disturbed as CBS anchor Dan Rather confirms the biases of the US media as this media wraps up in the American flag and protects the distinctive patriotism shown by President Bush.




I mentioned sometime ago the saying "Money talks and BS walks" and there is no better saying than this to qualify the Bush administration war against terrorism.



August 6

US House Representative Cynthia McKinney was derided and vilified when she stated that the Bush administration had prior knowledge of the 9/11 attacks and that the Bush family and their friends were making money out of the war on terrorism. Today, Cynthia McKinney has been vindicated as we all have come to know that President Bush was briefed on August 6/2001 by the CIA while vacationing in his Prairie Chapel ranch in Crawford, Texas.




It is not a fiction that the private business Carlyle Group associated with the Bush family made on a single day $237 million with the selling of shares in the United Defense Corporation.




Thursday, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice spoke on behalf of President Bush and said that the threats of imminent attacks prior to the 9/11 attacks were "very vague." We have been saying for a long time that our truths are found not in the specificity of any given event but by finding patterns and relationships of our experiences and events. What do the Bush people do? They talk about 'specificity' while many other people are saying to 'connect the dots.'




Condoleezza Rice has stated
"Had this president known of something more specific or known that a plane was going to be used as a missile, he would have acted on it."


White House press secretary Ari Fleischer echoed Condaleezza Rice as he has stated
"Domestically, through normal security channels, the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration were made aware of general information that, while mentioning highjackings, did not include specific and detailed warnings."


Instead, this is what Senator John McCain said
"There were two separate FBI reports plus a CIA warning, none of which were coordinated. The question is, if all three had been connected, would that have led to more vigorous activity?"




This game to be specific in any matter is the main reason why we have a confused world today. We hope that it will not be too late when President Bush will be able to connect the dots and find the truth about himself and his friends.
