Rumsfeld's Sole Target On 9/11 Was Saddam


By Elaine Meinel Supkis

When the first and second hijacked jets which the Pentagon knew were hijacked half an hour earlier, plowed into the WTC buildings, as people died, as secretaries plunged to their deaths, as all of America was screaming, Rumsfeld was unimpressed and paid not a whit of attention and only after the third jet hit near his office did he waken from his criminal, self imposed stupor. Then a mere three hours later, he was excitedly deliberately plotting to attack a totally innocent country!

From Outraged Moderates:
On July 23, 2005, I submitted an electronic Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Defense seeking DoD staffer Stephen Cambone's notes from meetings with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on the afternoon of September 11, 2001. Cambone's notes were cited heavily in the 9/11 Commission Report's reconstruction of the day's events. On February 10, 2006, I received a response from the DoD which includes partially-redacted copies of Cambone's notes. The documents can be viewed as a photo set on Flickr.

The released notes document Donald Rumsfeld's 2:40 PM instructions to General Myers to find the "[b]est info fast . . . judge whether good enough [to] hit S.H. [Saddam Hussein] at same time - not only UBL [Usama Bin Laden]" (as discussed on p. 334-335 of the 9/11 Commission Report and in Bob Woodward's Plan of Attack).
This confirms what we all suspected. We all, us lefties who never bought the "Bush and his drunken chickenhawk gang will protect America" garbage the rest of the nation ate, knew from day 2 that Rummy wanted to knock Saddam down but even we didn't think he would be so openly craven and evil as to plot doing this only a few hours after the attacks which means he planned to do this when an attack succeeded which explains his lassitude earlier in the day when the first two jets were reported hijacked and he did absolutely nothing at all and even after the dimmest witted fool in America knew we were under attack when the second jet hit the WTC complex, he is the only person aside from Bush to pay absolutely no attention at all. So arrest Rumsfeld and feed him to the Hague or better, waterboard him at Gitmo.

Here are the document proving he wanted only to find an excuse to hit Saddam. Also, it is curious that he knew at 2pm that bin Laden was involved since at that point, there was no proof.

From Salon:
On March 25, 2003, President Bush signed Executive Order 13292, a hitherto little known document that grants the greatest expansion of the power of the vice president in American history. The order gives the vice president the same ability to classify intelligence as the president. By controlling classification, the vice president can in effect control intelligence and, through that, foreign policy.


Bush operates on the radical notion of the "unitary executive," that the president has inherent and limitless powers in his role as commander in chief, above the system of checks and balances. By his extraordinary order, he elevated Cheney to his level, an acknowledgment that the vice president was already the de facto executive in national security. Never before has any president diminished and divided his power in this manner. Now the unitary executive inherently includes the unitary vice president.
The President can't sign away Constitutional powers. The fact that our Supreme Court is hardly better than the courts in Nazi Germany means no one can raise these issues and cetainly the corrupt, craven and illegally seated (due to voter fraud like the five Congressmen who got 18181 vote totals!) politicians have done nothing to protect the tripartate division of power.

All this is directly connected to the increasingly criminal operations going on, the illegal spying, the illegal harrassment of official whistleblowers, the outing of CIA covert agents for personal political gain, signing secret contracts and codices like the sale of our ports to a hostile country, the United Arab Emerites, contracts Congress has no say in according to the new Nazi Heimat laws, all these things stink.

Hearing now that the UAE "gave" us $100 million for the Katrina mess enrages me. Not a penny of this was needed, this is a rank bribe. The fact that no nation gave even a tenth of that amount proves it was a bribe to our government which is running in the red due to illegal tax cuts foisted on us by an illegally installed ruler!

All that money simply displaced a few drops of red ink. No one directly benefitted from it except Bush. The fact they closed some very lucrative deals after the palm-off, selling out working ports for one defunct city, New Orleans. Talk about treason.

Right now, Congress is "delaying" the sale of our precious assets to give Bush time to "sell" us the idea that losing control of our nation is good for America because the new rulers will occassionally hand out alms! Great. Some empire.

Some country. Die for America! Your local Sheik wants you.
