9/11 Linked to Iraq, in Politics if Not in Fact

Peter Baker reports for The Washington Post: "The television commercial is grim and gripping: A soldier who lost both legs in an explosion near Fallujah explains why he thinks US forces need to stay in Iraq.... Every investigation has shown that Iraq did not, in fact, have anything to do with the Sept. 11 attacks. But the ad, part of a new $15 million media blitz launched by an advocacy group allied with the White House, may be the most overt attempt during the current debate in Congress over the war to link the attacks with Iraq."

That it still commands the loyalty of even a quarter of our fellow citizens is testament to the persistence of willful ignorance. Against all the facts assembled in this indictment, that the administration's operatives can still make claims on strength, security, and determination is chutzpah on stilts. That the media still treat these operatives and spokespersons, and indeed the president himself, seriously is witness to their desire for 'access' and 'sources' rather than their commitment to the truth."

When not to start a war

Christian Science Monitor
by Andy Zelleke


Gen. David Petraeus’s report of some ’surge’-driven success on the ground does not change the reality that invading Iraq has proved disastrous, and that nothing plausibly salvageable there is worth thousands more GI lives, or hundreds of billions more dollars. So our soldiers should come home. But President Bush is right to remind the nation that humanitarian horrors followed closely on the heels of America’s withdrawal from Vietnam, and that a horrific scenario could unfold in Iraq if US forces leave abruptly. Unconscionable as it may have been to stand by during the Rwandan genocide in 1994, consider how much greater the moral culpability when the slaughter would flow from a sequence of events that America’s own war of choice set in motion...

US requires a more humble, nuanced foreign policy

Independent Institute
by Charles Pena


Trying to understand how Sept. 11 might have been averted requires more than a post-mortem on CIA procedures and a second look at the government’s nonexistent strategy for dealing with al- Qaida. Ultimately, the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks are inextricably linked to U.S. foreign policy. The Sept. 11 Commission concluded that the rising tide of anti-American Muslim hatred is fueled more by what we do — that is, by U.S. policies — than by who we are. Our values, culture and way of life are not the problem; our actions are the problem. Yet while the Sept. 11 Commission understood that point, it did not prescribe any real change in America’s post-Cold War foreign policy. If we are unable to admit that some of our policy choices are wrong, how can we hope to correct them?

Justice, a bit delayed

Disloyal Opposition
by JD Tuccille


As court challenges go, this is relatively fast work–only half a decade, give or take, for the courts to find (for the second time) that the Patriot Act’s national security letters are an outrageous invasion of our rights. That really is about as fast as the judicial system is capable of moving — which is not a particularly encouraging thought as we tally up the tens of thousands of national security letters the FBI issued every year after the passage of the Patriot Act. If you’re looking for quick solutions to civil liberties violations, lawsuits are probably not the way to go. Even now, the federal government is expected to appeal Marrero’s decision and further drag out the process...

Government failure in Iraq

The Free Liberal
by Fred E. Foldvary


Public finance and economics textbooks tell us that markets fail to provide adequate public goods such as security, which is why governments provide it. Yet if we look at Iraq in 2007, its government has failed to secure the country, and even the mighty US army has not stopped the slaughter. Instead of being protected by the corrupt state police, Iraqis look to militias for defense against crime and terror. There is in Iraq massive government failure. American politicians blame the current government chiefs and the members of parliament for not reconciling their differences and for the lack of progress in providing security and utilities. But we have to look beneath the current personae to the structure of governance that the American presence created. If the current structure is the best that political science has come up with, then the field of political science has to admit to intellectual failure...

The 9/11 conspiracy file: Myths and facts

Mother Jones
by James Ridgeway


Assessing our vulnerability to terrorist attack remains difficult in part because the events surrounding the attacks of September 11, 2001, have not been thoroughly explained. In its investigation into them, the 9/11 Commission slid past many important questions, leaving them unanswered, and did not adequately challenge the Bush administration when it refused to cooperate or obfuscated its own actions. This has naturally spurred the various conspiracy theories that have set out to unravel what happened. Some address legitimate issues, such as the as-yet-unexplained fact that American intelligence had been tracking lead hijacker Mohammad Atta since the late 1990s but did nothing to stop him. But most theories run the gamut from the preposterous (the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon were drones) to the improbable (the WTC buildings collapsed due to a demolition charge). The prevailing theory is summed up by a bumper sticker: ‘9/11 Was an Inside Job’...

Retreat of the antiwar Democrats

Human Events
by Pat Buchanan


In November 2006, Republicans were voted out of power in the Congress and Democrats installed to bring an end to U.S. involvement in the war in Iraq. The war had been going on as long as America’s war on Nazi Germany. No end was in sight. U.S. casualties and costs were rising. Bush’s approval rating had sunk to record lows. The day after the GOP rout, Bush cashiered his war minister, Donald Rumsfeld. In December, the Iraq Study Group, chaired by Bush I Secretary of State James Baker, released its report. … Next April is the date when the Iraq Study Group said all U.S. combat brigades should be out of Iraq. By then, Bush and Petraeus will have tens of thousands more troops in Iraq than when the Democrats were elected and the ISG reported. The lame duck is not all that lame. What happened to the party of Speaker Pelosi and Reid, which was going to end U.S. involvement in the war and not permit Bush to pursue victory the way Richard Nixon pursued it in Vietnam for four years? Answer: Terrified of the possible consequences of the policies they recommend, Democrats lack the courage to impose those policies...

Top ten reasons for a new 9/11 investigation

Strike the Root
by Glenn Allport


Six years ago, on September 11, 2001, America’s staggeringly expensive defense system failed catastrophically. Four airliners were hijacked and then used as weapons; three were flown into buildings and the fourth crashed on the way to an unknown target …. This disaster should have been prevented, but was not. The people and organizations charged with detecting and thwarting such an attack failed. Warnings were in fact given, but as is typical of government action, even the sincere efforts of dedicated individuals were not enough to prevent the organization as a whole from failing, in this case with horrific consequences...


The real lessons of 9/11

by Gary Kamiya


Six years ago, Islamist terrorists attacked the United States, killing almost 3,000 people. President Bush used the attacks to justify his 2003 invasion of Iraq. And he has been using 9/11 ever since to scare Americans into supporting his “war on terror.” He has incessantly linked the words ‘al-Qaida’ and ‘Iraq,’ a Pavlovian device to make us whimper with fear at the mere idea of withdrawing. In a recent speech about Iraq, he mentioned al-Qaida 95 times. No matter that jihadists in Iraq are not the same group that attacked the U.S., or that their numbers and effectiveness have been greatly exaggerated. It’s no surprise that Gen. David Petraeus’ ‘anxiously awaited’ evaluation of the war is to be given on the 10th and 11th of September. The not-so-subliminal message: We must do what Bush and Petraeus say or risk another 9/11. Petraeus’ evaluation can only be ‘anxiously awaited’ by people who are still anxiously waiting for Godot. We know what will happen next because we’ve been watching this movie for eight months...

Surging toward Iran

by Justin Raimondo


Petraeus continually points the finger at Tehran as an explanation for the lack of ‘progress’ in Iraq. … The ‘ethno-sectarian competition,’ Petraeus avers, is being pushed toward violence, in part because of ‘malign actions by Syria and, especially, by Iran.’ What actions? No answer is given: not that anyone is asking, at least not in the Congress or among the presidential candidates of either party. Prior accusations that IEDs found in Iraq were manufactured in Iran have proved sketchy, at best, and pure invention, at worst. Yet Petraeus’ words are simply taken as gospel, much as Colin Powell’s peroration of Scooter Libby-produced lies performed in front of the UN was hailed as a home run. Years from now, will we look back on the Petraeus-Crocker dog-and-pony show with the same bitter regret that nobody — or almost nobody — doubted them? You can bet the ranch on it...

What the warfare state really costs

by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.


Estimates of the cost of the Iraq war continue to escalate to levels well beyond what its optimistic architects once promised. Most notable, perhaps, has been the estimate of Columbia University’s Joseph Stiglitz, who, in a January 2006 paper with Harvard’s Linda Bilmes, put the full cost at around $2 trillion. By the end of the year, the two had grown even more pessimistic. … Assessing the full costs of war, direct and indirect, as opposed to the immediate and obvious ones, is a crucial task for those who favor nonintervention. But at least as important is assessing the costs of the warfare state itself, whether or not it is currently engaged in actual fighting. The public is inclined to think of the costs of the military establishment in terms of the annual defense budget. The true costs, however, are much greater, although usually hidden...
