    You mean on 9/11?

    Which attack on US soil, or property, are you referring to?

    The affiliation with attacks on America in the last few decades have been from Islamic Jihadists. Their influence is international and they've more support from some countries than others, clandestine though that support might be.

    Of course, he was "disowned", this would shake the connection he had with his family and by proxy, american interests, so that he could "recruit" people to "fight american interests", meanwhile, from the 80's onward it's historical fact that bin laden had been working through the CIA, using the pakistani ISI as a proxy.

    Here's a little homework for you, and don't forget to read through all the sources as well.

    Remember : This terror plot ahs the same validity as Iraqi yellow cakes.

    You're saying they performed their own intelligence probes into Iraqi WMDs?

    They're not the ones who cherry picked the intel that suited them.
    Is that your professional opinion?

    Shouldn't they have? I mean, if you're going to vote for an invasion, shouldn't you be sure you have all the available info?

    Really??? I guess just about every intelligence agency in every country in the world was wrong then.

    Why don't you send them all an e-mail with your "coffee pap" logo on it to set them straight.

    Those groups expressed doubts. So, your statement is nonsensical. The poitn is they doubted Curveball, they knew al Libi was coearsed. They expressed many doubts. None of that was expressed by Bush. Many believe Saddam had a few left over wmds. But Bush's claim went beyond that. Bush said Saddam was growing and gathering, and few supported that view.

    Many seriously doubted them. Many expressed those doubts before we invaded. The CIA doubted Curveball and pointed out al Libi was coearse and likley did not know what he claimed. These doubts were ignored by Bush, and he made the claims as iff they were not doubted.

    That's one, you said many. Who is many? And, certainly you can prove the CIA's doubts...with a primary source, right?
