So let me get this straight. Regarding countries (i.e., Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc.) that spawned or aided (or both) the so-called 9/11 hijackers, we not only don’t invade them, we approve of them controlling port security in 6 major American cities. Regarding countries that had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11 (i.e., Iraq, Iran), we invade and/or rattle sabers at them.
Does that make a ball of shit’s worth of sense?
Frankly, this state of affairs just gives more ammunition to the so-called 9/11 conspiracy theorists (9/11, by the way, DID involve conspiracy–it’s just that the Bushies want you to believe it was a conspiracy among Middle Easterners rather than among neocons). I mean, 15 of the 19 purported hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, and to this day, when Saudi Arabia says jump, we ask how high. And as Paul O’Neill has told us, Iraq was on the Bush agenda from their first Cabinet meeting.
So if you buy the idea that 9/11 wasn’t perpetrated by Middle Eastern terrorists at all, this UAE port security deal makes perfect sense. What I mean to say is, Saudi Arabia and the UAE don’t get attacked or invaded by us because the Bushies know that Middle Eastern terrorists really didn’t pull off 9/11. And Iraq does because that’s the country the neocons have been wanting to knock off since Gulf War I.
And people ask what could possibly be going on behind the scenes, what sort of tit-for-tat arrangement has been work out between the Bushies and the UAE? Obviously I have no idea, but this deal makes sense as hush money for not revealing details of 9/11 and/or other terror plots.
