    I love how it says "Al-Qaida is on the verge of producing radioactive weapons after sourcing nuclear material and recruiting rogue scientists to build "dirty" bombs, according to leaked diplomatic documents," but cites absolutely no leaked diplomatic documents whatsoever.
    "And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness."

    All in your perspective I suppose. For me, the idiotic words makes it hard to hear the music.

    The most effective use of a nuclear bomb would be to demonstrate it in the desert of Iran and then claim that there are three more bombs already in NY City, DC and Chicago. Thousands if not millions of people would die in the panic to get out of those cities.

    Our economy would crash and we would be without a government for weeks as our congressional critters hid under rocks.

    I see that you're still caught up in the Bush/Cheney propaganda blitz. Common sense should tell you that the al qaeda are just radical Arabs who always work alone, have no identity, no tanks, no planes, no navy, no identifiable country, and for the last 8 years their only weapons have been road bombs and suicide bombs.

    Would it? If Saddam was still in power, dodging inspections, building an army, funding terrorists, would the world be a better and safer place?
    Saddam, spend HIS money? I suspect our "allies", the Saudis, fund more terrorism than Saddam ever did...

    You are right, 9/11 had nothing to do with our invasion of Iraq. Regime change in Iraq was planned at least 8 months before the 9/11 attack.

    "And what happened at President Bush's very first National Security Council meeting is one of O'Neill's most startling revelations.

    “From the very beginning, there was a conviction, that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go,” says O’Neill, who adds that going after Saddam was topic "A" 10 days after the inauguration - eight months before Sept. 11.

    “From the very first instance, it was about Iraq. It was about what we can do to change this regime,” says Suskind. “Day one, these things were laid and sealed.”

    As treasury secretary, O'Neill was a permanent member of the National Security Council. He says in the book he was surprised at the meeting that questions such as "Why Saddam?" and "Why now?" were never asked.

    "It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying ‘Go find me a way to do this,’" says O’Neill. “For me, the notion of pre-emption, that the U.S. has the unilateral right to do whatever we decide to do, is a really huge leap.”

    Maybe Wikipedia will eventually publish them.
