    Question Bush lied about thwarting LA terrorism plot

    Man, they can't seem to do anything right these days

    Growing questions about whether Bush lied today about the supposed threat to LA that he supposedly foiled
    by John in DC - 2/09/2006 04:58:00 PM


    1. Los Angeles Mayor knows nothing about the supposed threat:
    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Thursday he was blindsided by President Bush's announcement of new details on a purported 2002 hijacking plot aimed at a downtown skyscraper, and described communication with the White House as "nonexistent."

    "I'm amazed that the president would make this (announcement) on national TV and not inform us of these details through the appropriate channels," the mayor said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I don't expect a call from the president — but somebody."

    2. Bush's claim to have thwarted an attack on LA is disputed by former FBI official

    TODAY BUSH SAID: Bush Touted Thwarting of Post 9/11 U.S. Terrorism Plot. In a speech today, Bush told members of the National Guard Association of a foiled 2002 Al Qaeda plot to fly a plane into LA's US Bank Tower, the tallest building on the West Coast. Bush said that the terrorist's plan was put into place after 9/11 but "was derailed in early 2002, when a Southeast Asian nation arrested a key al Qaeda operative." Bush added, "Subsequent debriefings and other intelligence operations made clear the intended target and how al Qaeda hoped to execute" the plot, and helped other allies capture the ringleaders." - Washington Post, 2/9/06

    BUT IN 2004: FBI Counterterrorism Official Said He Knew of No Thwarted Al Qaeda Attacks. After a CIA official claimed last year that the government had "probably prevented a few aviation attacks against both the East and West Coasts" since 9/11, John Pistole, the FBI's counterterrorism director, said he was "not sure what [the CIA] was referring to." - 9/11 Commission Testimony, 6/16/2004; New York Daily News, 6/17/04

    yeah well shit, who is honestly suprised bout this; I didn't believe him the first time it was on the news here in L.A. either, in fact I even yelled at my t.v. "Liar!" and well, he is and he was and that's that.

    Have you ever heard of the boy who cried wolf Bush? Sooner or later, you're everyone will stop listening.

    I knew something was fishy about this supposed threat on LA. If the CIA is saying that they did'nt kno about the threat, then it immediatly shows that Bush is making shit up to put the citizens in "fear" mode again and get his points back up.

    Fucking liar using terroism to boost his image. Pathetic.

    Perhaps Bush's plan was to create the illusion of effectiveness so that
    the gov't can implement Total War:

    Ability to Wage 'Long War' Is Key To Pentagon Plan

    Conventional Tactics De-Emphasized

    By Ann Scott Tyson
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Saturday, February 4, 2006; Page A01

    The Pentagon, readying for what it calls a "long war," yesterday laid out a new 20-year defense strategy that envisions U.S. troops deployed, often clandestinely, in dozens of countries at once to fight terrorism and other nontraditional threats.

    Major initiatives include a 15 percent boost in the number of elite U.S. troops
    known as Special Operations Forces, a near-doubling of the capacity of
    unmanned aerial drones to gather intelligence, a $1.5 billion investment to
    counter a biological attack, and the creation of special teams to find, track
    and defuse nuclear bombs and other catastrophic weapons.

    So basically he's trying to make his "military plans" look effective to launch a total war? He's really wants to "spread democracy".

    Bush should've studied his history a little more closely. The Roman
    Empire (here I go, sounding like Cliffy Claven again) apparently
    fell apart because they extended their armies too far afield and
    couldn't afford to pay them. One day the troops and legions in
    England, France, Germany etc. began to quit en masse, and suddenly
    Rome was vulnerable.

    If he thinks the war in Iraq is costing him, just wait till he sees
    the projections for this plan...
