It's everywhere. Visit any forum on steroids, cars, ipods, whatever, invariably you will find a rant about how George Bush engineered the destruction of the WTC just so he could invade Iraq to help his oil buddies (1). Liberal blogger idiots post articles about how it was all about getting rid of Saddam months before 9/11. (2)
As a result of the 2006 elections it is easy to calculate that about half of this country's voters are composed of morons and idiots (sadly this includes even conservatives). As proof I offer this Zogby poll (3) indicating that if you threw a rock at a bunch of New Yorkers, there is a 50-50 chance that you'll hit an imbecile who thinks US Leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act".
So let's see what we have here:
George Bush, being the exceedingly evil genius that he is, begins to plan the invasion of Iraq a few days after he is inaugurated. He has thousands of military personnel deployed to begin wiring up the WTC buildings for a controlled demolition and done under absolute secrecy. None of the tens of thousands of WTC workers or those employed there suspect or detect anything during months of the entire operation and not one single soldier tells any spouse or relative or friend what is going on.
Since millions of planes take off every year in America, it is a statistical likelihood that on any given day one can find a half dozen or so planes filled with at least 4 or 5 men of Middle Eastern origin. When the WTC buildings are ready to implode, the Intelligence agencies scan airline manifests and select those planes that have the requisite number of Arab dupes, then have military ground crew secretly insert remote control devices to force those planes into their targets, then run those planes precisely into those floors where the preset demolition explosives are located, have specially coated explosives that won't go off prematurely when the fuel of the planes explode around them, wait for exactly the amount of time that independent engineers post facto would corroborate was the proper duration for the heat to weaken the steel struts and then trigger the explosives to collapse the buildings downward from only those exact floors where the planes hit, despite the fact that controlled demolitions all over the world start at the bottom and go up. The precise engineering for this rivals the landing of the moon module [which probably never happened, BTW].
After 9/11 all those who took part in the actual installation of explosives in the buildings or inserting of robotic devices on the planes, or who remotely controlled both, were kept in special prisons overseas. At the right time they would be killed by "friendly fire" in Afghanistan and Iraq. The death count in the War on Terror is actually less by thousands. Most of the dead are those who were killed to insure that the secret would never leak out. This is why no one in the conspiracy has come out in all these years to corroborate what really happened.
In addition, this nefarious plan cleverly took into account the ego of Osama bin Laden, that if Bush placed the blame on al Qaeda, despite their having nothing absolutely to do with it, that Osama would take the bait and proudly boast that he indeed was the one who planned the whole thing from Afghanistan (4). Bush even took a calculated risk that the Taliban would refuse to hand him over when requested and precipitate an invasion of the entire country.
They deceived Me! Colin Powell
sounded so convincing! Bush
you bastard, you lied and I died!

So here is Bush's total evil genius revealed. Create a Pearl Harbor type incident with the most complicated and perfectly executed engineering operation the world has ever seen. Get rid of all the witnesses in the style of the Pharaohs of Egypt. Blame it on innocent dupe Osama bin Laden who, minding his own business in a cave in Afghanistan with his favorite goat, readily takes the blame just so his hosts could be bombed to hell. The Taliban fall into place with their refusal to hand over Osama, which minor detail sets off the complete invasion of their country. Once in Afghanistan, the real target is set up and Saddam is manipulated into his false bravado of having thousands of WMD which scene he plays exactly right to force an invasion of his country. And even as our troops were massed on his borders he still refused to call finsies and allow the inspectors in, when in fact there was really nothing to inspect! Even Saddam was fooled into thinking he had WMD.
How did George Bush know that his plan would fall exactly, unerringly, precisely in place only a few days after he was inaugurated? And the left have the nerve to call him an idiot!
unicef youth forum, re Bush's decisions a risk?
Many people, including myself, think that the war is a way to keep the oil companies and defense companies happy and increase their profits. War is good for some businesses and quite frankly, those are the very businesses that this administration is intimately involved with.
truthout.org, Bush Sought 'Way' To Invade Iraq?
"eight months before Sept. 11... "it was about Iraq. It was about what we can do to change this regime," says Suskind. "Day one, these things were laid and sealed."... "It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying 'Go find me a way to do this [invade Iraq]...'"
Zogby News (August 30, 2004), Half of New Yorkers Believe US Leaders Had Foreknowledge of Impending 9-11 Attacks and "Consciously Failed” To Act
W. David Kubiak, executive director of 911truth.org, the group that commissioned the poll, expressed genuine surprise that New Yorkers' belief in the administration's complicity is as high or higher than that seen overseas. "We're familiar with high levels of 9/11 skepticism abroad where there has been open debate of the evidence for US government complicity. On May 26th the Toronto Star reported a national poll showing that 63% of Canadians are also convinced US leaders had 'prior knowledge' of the attacks yet declined to act.
telegraph.co.uk, 11 Nov 2001, Bin Laden: Yes, I did it
OSAMA BIN LADEN has for the first time admitted that his al-Qa'eda group carried out the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, the Telegraph can reveal.
In a previously undisclosed video which has been circulating for 14 days among his supporters, he confesses that "history should be a witness that we are terrorists. Yes, we kill their innocents".
In the footage, shot in the Afghan mountains at the end of October, a smiling bin Laden goes on to say that the World Trade Centre's twin towers were a "legitimate target" and the pilots who hijacked the planes were "blessed by Allah".
Wikipedia, Saddam was misled
A rumor originating among the British intelligence community was the Saddam had been lied to about his biological and chemical weapons capabilities. And as most of the informers for British intelligence were high level informers close to Saddam, the British were also fooled. Doctor Gary Samore of the International Institute for Strategic Studies noted that during the 2003 invasion, there was "chatter" among Iraqi forces that was interpreted to mean that a chemical weapons attack was ordered. Whether they really had these weapons, whether it was bluster to frighten the coalition or fool Saddam is unclear.
