    1. Isn't that "all _______ are guilty of something" the type of thinking which led to holocaust…. Were all the Jews guilty of something..?? Answer, we are ALL guilty of something, but not something to keep us locked away without charges or gassed..!! It is the pathological governments of the world that do these things to people…..

  1. Maybe Bush needed some accused terrorists because THERE NEVER WAS AN AL QAEDA, BECAUSE "AL QAEDA" IS JUST THE CIA'S OLD DATABASE OF ANTI-SOVIET MUJAHEDEEN.

    Al QAEDA means "THE BASE." THE DATABASE. GET IT?

    MAYBE BUSH WANTED TO INVADE AFGHANISTAN FOR OIL PIPELINES AND TO "BAILOUT" BANKS WHICH WERE TROUBLED EVEN BACK THEN BY ALLOWING THEM TO LAUNDER OPIUM PROFITS. PROFITS MADE BY SELLING OPIUM TO THE YOUTH OF THE RUSSIAN "ENEMY."

    HE COULDN'T REALLY SAY THAT ON TV, NOW COULD HE?

    1. I also heard it's based on Asimov's "Foundation" Scifi. That doesn't make it true.

      Mr. Laden has a franchise. Whether you call it "Qaeda" or "Bearded Deep Bass Voicemasters with Bombs" really doesn't matter.
