To those who claim that a lone religious zealot on dialysis directed the
September 11 attacks on America from the caves in Afghanistan while America's
Intelligence was caught asleep at the wheel, I have this to say: "YOU are the
real conspiracy theory nuts."
To the rest of us, I ask: "Was Watergate a conspiracy or did it just
happen by accident?"
If the culprits had not been caught, wouldn't Watergate have been labeled
as "yet another conspiracy theory" just like the "October Surprise"?
What about the Iraq war? Was it just a series of mistakes that led to the
war, or was it planned long before September 11, 2001?
A much simpler explanation for September 11 attacks is that it was
committed (whether we want to accept the Bush administration's full involvement
or just advance knowledge and tacit approval - it doesn't matter) to pave the
way for the Afghanistan war, the Iraq war, ..., or simply put, to put into
motion the neo-conservative "Project for the New American Century".
