have you ever played that game where you say "in bed" after you read your fortune cookie outloud?  let's try your statement again, slslbs, and add "in bed" at the end.  that's more like it.

No sympathy for a man that used nerve gas on over 10000 people and had rape rooms for he and his sons.

agreed. Saddam is among the most evil men who walked the earth in our lifetime. I won't shed a tear for him. I was only poking fun at Bush/Cheny for trying to convince us he was involved in 9/11

The book called Crossing The Rubicon by Michael Ruppert pinpoints Cheney as the conductor of 9/11.

Quote
Columnist Norman Solomon has argued that Ruppert has a flawed analytical model. "Some of the problem is in how he characterizes news reports. These citations can be narrowly factual yet presented in a misleading way. Yes, such--and--such newspaper reported that thus-and-so claim was made by so-and-so. The paper reported on the claim, but that doesn't mean the claim is true."[2]

Blogger Bill Herbert has written a detailed response to Ruppert's "9/11 Oh Lucy! - You Gotta Lotta 'Splainin' To Do" [3]

Columnist David Corn has also criticized the methodology of Ruppert, and dismissed the idea that conspiracy theorizing is useful: "In fact, out-there conspiracy theorizing serves the interests of the powers-that-be by making their real transgressions seem tame in comparison."[4]

Ruppert's site has also been criticized for using news articles from other sources verbatim, citing "fair use", while at the same time putting the majority of his own material behind a subscription wall.
again i ask the question, why was the only inside job in AMERICA?  Where are the theorists in London? Kuta?  Bali?  Istanbul? Madrid?


anyway, back on topic:

Michael Ruppert's theory has more holes than swiss cheese from what I have read.  It was an attempt to blame on Cheney, but in  reality a desperate way to make money off of a tragedy and nothing more.

Didn't I see this on South Park a couple weeks ago?  the Gov't wants us to Think they were behind 9/11 because then it seems like they are powerful and in control.  So they let these conspiracy theorys spread.  In reality, 9/11 was caused by some middle-class, college-educated morons who thought that violent ravings in an old-ass book trumped the more-popular belief that Killing People Is Wrong.

the same could be said about Cheney et al.  Inside trading?  Gargantuan govt./war contracts.  Gee I wonder who has shares?
