Short piece includes that even the Magna Carta was ended by the 'war on terror.'

Regarding the September 11, 2001 attacks, Vidal has written the American intelligence community clearly warned it was coming but the event provided political cover and pretext for the plans that the administration already had in place for invading Iraq--plans that can be traced to the waning days of the first Bush family presidency. .


From PT's link above...I wonder who the Bush family is "grooming" to continue their dynasty...Jeb's various offspring?

Vidal has been known to overstate his case. While I don't disagree with his assessment here, I remember him saying, Ronnie Reagan would be subject to impeachment proceedings for the Iran-Contra fiasco and for the "October Surprise" of 1980. History shows no such thing even came close to happening; we were told the country was still trying to recover from Nixon's impeachment hearings. Similar excuses have been given why the War Chimp's impeachment hasn't happened; it too soon to disrupt the work of the Congress after Clinton's BJ impeachment trial.

Silly me...I thought for a fleeting moment that Congress was supposed to be working for the PEOPLE...I forgot that Congress now works solely for the Bush admin...especially those Bush Dems!
