We never would have gone into Afghanistan and started this war without it. There just was not the national will." - As told by a senior Pentagon official to Rowan Scarborough, in his book "Rumsfeld's War" "The other day a reporter friend told me that one of the highest-ranking CIA officials had said to him, off the record, that when the dust finally clears, Americans will see that September 11 was a triumph for the intelligence community, not a failure." - Former CIA field officer Robert Baer, from his book "See no Evil" And of course we now have the permanent "war on terror", funding the Pentagon at more than $1/2 trillion each and every year, committing endless genocide and other human rights atrocities under pretext of 9/11. And new "laws" that make every single American a suspected terrorist subject to warrantless spying, indefinite detention, loss of Habeas Corpus and many other violations of civil rights absent due process, guaranteed by the Constitution and more specifically the Bill of Rights. YOUR taxpayer dollars at work.
