An Administration of Lies, BS, and Bunkum


The Probable Cause to charge George W. Bush, Condoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld in connection with 911

Bush expects the American people to believe an assortment of absurdities, official conspiracy theories, and bald-faced lies. Americans are expected to swallow codswallop for which there is not a shred of evidence. Trickle-down or supply side economics is one. Bush's official conspiracy theory of 911 is another. Bush loves conspiracy theories. He just doesn't like yours; he doesn't like facts and he especially doesn't like dissent or criticism.

The GOP doesn't really not believe in conspiracy theories. Goppers love those conspiracies they can exploit, like wedge issues used to divide a "conspiratorial" opposition. Like Bush, the GOP loves conspiracy theories and have bought into every absurd theory Bush has managed to excrete and publicize.

What is Al Qaeda if not a "conspiracy"?

What is the "Axis of Evil" if not a conspiracy?

What was Hani Hanjour and Atta doing if not conspiring? Conspire is about all they could do. They most certainly could not have crashed airliners with uncanny precision. They most certainly could not have gotten on board an airliner without showing up on a flight manifest. In fact, they didn't. The implications are enormous.

They most certainly could not have subdued the crew and passengers with box cutters and/or pen knives. I've always found it interesting the conspiracists inside the venerable BBC and the Guardian turned up several "Islamic conspirators" who somehow survived the said crashes to give interviews. It's amazing what dead conspirators are capable of doing. Did the America media touch this. Not a chance. Fox as well as the so-called "legitimate", mainstream media simply walked away from what should have been front-page, second coming headlines exposing the biggest government fraud ever perpetrated in the US.

Curious about how our esteemed system of justice feels about "conspiracy theories", I did a cursory net search. On Findlaw, I found well over 200 SCOTUS decisions having to do with "conspiracies" of one sort or another. Would some bright and informed right-winger, please inform the justices of the Supreme Court that conspiracies don't exist? It would save the aging justices a lot of work.

Go to Findlaw! You will find thousands of US Codes having to do with conspiracies. I also found hundreds, possibly thousands (I did not count) of articles by legal scholars having to do with conspiracies. I find it appalling that Congress would spend so much time passing laws having to do with things that do not exist!

Right wing idiots spent the better part of the 1950's warning us of a great world wide communist conspiracy. Now the same ilk, the same mentality is trying to convince us that conspiracies don't exist. You have a right to be confused. The right wing certainly is. The right wing has surely been drinking lead laced kool-aid, a practice known to kill brain cells. It was the same mentality that in the fifties tried to convince us that there was a nationwide, liberal conspiracy to lace municipal water supplies with flouride. There was --and it was a good thing, too. Otherwise, a lot of young, spiffy, buttoned-down conservatives would be toothless by now.

In the 50's right wing nuts and other idiots found a commie under every sofa when all the commies really wanted was a sofa under every commie. What was that if not a world-wide communist conspiracy? Today --the right wing is reduced to trying to convince us that there is a conspiracy of conspiracists to spread conspiracies.

But, in the meantime, we are expected to believe every conspiracy about al Qaeda, bin Laden, the mis-named "insurgency", or Michael Moore.

Asking the question: why did Bush block several investigations of 911 does not posit a theory of any sort. But daring to ask that question will get you labeled: conspiracist !

Asking the question: why were the jets not scrambled until after the events were all over does not posit any theory whatsoever. But daring to ask the question will get you branded. Supporters of GWB get to indulge insane conspiracy and other types of cockamamie claptrap. Those who don't support Bush are supposed to just shut up, bend over, get screwed, and shut the fnck up! There is a dangerous conspiracy among Americans to speak the truth. In the past, speaking the truth was enough to get you murdered and/or assassinated. It still is!

The truly skeptical position is one of challenging anything put forward not only by the Bush administration but the party with which he has conspired to steal at least two elections, block investigations into 911, and, in other ways, facilitate Bush's incompetent and dictatorial regime.

If Bush and the GOP have a theory about how the now deceased bin Laden, Atta et all pulled it all off on 911, then let them back it all up with a truly independent investigation empowered to collect and examine all the hard evidence and prosecute the "conspirators". I would start with those who ordered most of it destroyed within hours of the commission of this crime. Last time I checked, the destruction of evidence of a felony is a felony. But I'm a "conspiracy theorists" for having dared read the law with regard to the obstruction of justice, seditious treason, and perjury. In fact, I would support a "conspiracy" of federal grand jurors issuing subpoenas, giving the real conspirators their chance to lie their assess off about the conspiracy of which they were a part.

Bush asked us to believe that Saddam had WMD, possibly a nuke. Condo raised the specter of a mushroom cloud. Saddam, we were led to believe, was conspiring with Bin Laden to wage war on Americans. It was bullshit! But Bush was not held to critical standards. It was not only because the nation was in a state of shock, Americans, it would seem, are conditioned from birth to give greater weight to right wing theories of all sorts --economic, judicial, and conspiracy. In the GOP bizzarro world, only liberals and Democrats may put forward a "theory". The GOP takes a crap and it is considered sacred text.

At last, some 184 un-identified remains were buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
A five-sided granite marker bearing the 184 names will be placed over a shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery — the nation's most prestigious burial ground — holding the unidentified remains.[emphasis mine, LH]

--Arlington National Cemetery
Of the 184, sixty-four were said to have been passengers of Flight 77, the flight which is said to have crashed into the Pentagon.
A list of names on a piece of paper is not evidence, but an autopsy by a pathologist, is. I undertook by FOIA request, to obtain that autopsy list and you are invited to view it below. Guess what? Still no Arabs on the list. In my opinion the monsters who planned this crime made a mistake by not including Arabic names on the original list to make the ruse seem more believable.

When airline disasters occur, airlines will routinely provide a manifest list for anxious families. You may have noticed that even before Sep 11th, airlines are pretty meticulous about getting an accurate headcount before takeoff. It seems very unlikely to me, that five Arabs sneaked onto a flight with weapons. This is the list provided by American of the 56 passengers. On September 27th, the FBI published photos of the “hijackers” of Flight 77.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), does a miraculous job and identifies nearly all the bodies on November 16th 2001.

The AFIP suggest these numbers; 189 killed, 125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on the plane. The AA list only had 56 and the list just obtained has 58. They did not explain how they were able to tell “victims” bodies from “hijacker” bodies. In fact, from the beginning NO explanation has been given for the extra five suggested in news reports except that the FBI showed us the pictures to make up the difference, and that makes it so.

The numbers will never add up. Arlington National Cemetary says it interred 184. But AFIP says there were a total of 189 bodies --125 worked at the Pentagon and 64 were “passengers” on flight 77. Arlington claims that the unidentified remains of 184 victims share a grave at Arlington National Cemetery.

I interpret that to mean that this "shared grave" is the final resting place for unidentified victims from both the Pentagon and Flight 77.

Five are unaccounted for --presumably the "terrorist" hijackers. But that does not account for the discrepancy for several reasons. Both Arlington and AFIP claim that there were 64 Pentagon workers. AFIP provided a list of 56 passengers of Flight 77. That''s only 120! If you exclude 5 terrorists from the AFIP's total of 189, you are still left with 64 "people" completely unaccounted for. Who the hell are they?
No Arabs wound up on the morgue slab; however, three ADDITIONAL people not listed by American Airlines sneaked in. I have seen no explanation for these extras. I did American [Airlines] the opportunity to “revise” their original list, but they have not responded. The new names are: Robert Ploger, Zandra Ploger, and Sandra Teague. The AFIP claims that the only “passenger” body that they were not able to identify is the toddler, Dana Falkenberg, whose parents and young sister are on the list of those identified.

These are just a tiny few of the myriad of facts that Bush loyalists cannot explain away or rationalize with the official conspiracy theory. The silver bullet is this: there were no arabs on the flight manifests when "officialdom" maintains that all the said hijackers were Arab.

Johnny Cochran won a famous murder trial with a single phrase which summed up his defense: "If it does not fit, you must acquit!" I rather think that a guilty party might be indicted just as simply: "No arabs on flight! You must indict!"

If there was no hijacking, then Bush and minions are murderous liars! Even if Bush did not order the strikes, his administration is --at the very least --complicit. An accessory to a crime --in this case a capital crime --must generally have knowledge that a crime is being, or will be committed. There is enough verifiable evidence in the public record to establish probable cause that Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and several others in the corrupt Bush administration knew that such a crime had been planned --and did absolutely nothing! Well, almost nothing. Condoleeza Rice most certainly warned the mayor of San Francisco not to fly. It is, likewise, Bush's own version of his activities that day that should be considered by a jury whose task it will be to decide his fate. At the very least, the case against them will say, they let it happen. They allowed allowed and planned to exploit the deaths of some 3000 American citizens whose only crime was showing up for work that day.

Who, then, is responsible for the events of 911? As I wrote in a previous article: if you want to find a cultprit, look first among those who lie about the crime. Bush!
