  •  Let's go a step further... (3+ / 0-)

    more crazy shit being revealed that shows just how convenient the 9/11 attacks turned out to be for so many looking to expand their powers by dismantling the Constitution.

    Crazy, I know, but...

    There may be more to this aspect of the story yet. As in, did the NSA issue its own form of PDA warning about imminent attacks?

    It's still, IMHO, one of the most bazaar sets of coincidences, ever.

    Seriously, the NSA not knowing about the biggest attack on the civilian population of this country ever?

    Sheesh. What a failure...or success.

    Physics is bulls**t. Don't let them fool you. Fire IS magic.

    •  All they needed was some cataclysmic event (7+ / 0-)

      to galvanize the American people so their agenda could roll forth......

      A new Pearl harbor, they said.

      Posted it online, signed off on it: great set of luminaries penned their names to it.

      Just a coinicidence, of course: nobody could have known....

      •  Hmm, one starts to wonder just how many... (1+ / 0-)

        coincidences can possibly occur within the span of one bright, sunny... but ultimately dark, infamous day.

        Just a coinicidence, of course: nobody could have known....
        What's ironic is our government failed to see what was happening before 9-11. But We the People failed to see what would come after.

        As in Presidential daily briefing?  

        Can't figure out how PDA (personal digital assistant - old name for Palm Pilots / Smart Phones) or Personal Displays of Affection fits.

          The notion that perhaps some in government knew of the attack and, for their own reasons, did nothing to stop it. Acronym for Let It Happen On Purpose. Generally a bannable topic around here; along with the even more conspiracist MIHOP, with M = Made.

            I'm cutting the bushes after reading a comment in a different diary about Bush has reminded me I need to do that chore, and now I have the appetite of a lumber jack.

            Reading IHOP (International House of Pancakes) has made me want pancakes and maple syrup.  I just didn't know what the L stood for.

              Just finished lunch, so fortunately I'm immune - but otherwise I would have been craving them myself after that comment.
