Rumsfeld, Iraq, and 9/11

Thanks to the FOIA, Outraged Moderates has acquired "DoD staffer Steven Cambone's notes from meetings with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on the afternoon of September 11, 2001".

PDF versions of those notes are available. Click on the link above.

They provide further evidence, pretty strong evidence, that 9/11 provided the best pretext possible for an attack on Iraq -- even if Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11.

Why isn't there more outrage out there? Essentially, the Bush Administration used 9/11 -- a terrorist attack on U.S. soil that took the lives of thousands of Americans -- as an excuse to launch a full-out invasion and occupation in Iraq, that is, according to the so-called Bush Doctrine, to start a pre-emptive war against a rogue regime, one that posed little if any immediate threat to U.S. national security. And we know where that's gotten us, right?

  • I agree and now the U.S. has lost a great deal of credibility. And now we facing the very real threat of a nuclear Iran.

  • Ah yes, Iran, the country with WMD nuclear ambitions, and terrosit sponsoring gov. Glad we went to Iraq to get the guy that tried to kill his daddy 12 years ago.

  • Now, now, as the President succinctly reminded us during his inspiring State of the Union moment, the history is just that..history. Let us put aside such piddling ideals like "truth" and "evidence" and instead focus at the task at hand...

    ...bombing the be-jesus outta Tehran!
