Truth and Sept. 11:
|The following press release was issued by the Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr, on June 5, 2002, and was published in EIR Magazine. Scroll down or click here for the Mother Goose Nursery rhyme that is referenced in the title, and for Related Articles.
Who is to be blamed for not preventing September 11th? It is clear that there are some people, Democrats and others, in the U.S. Congress, and elsewhere, who are as quick to blame President George W. Bush for not acting to prevent the true horrors of Sept. 11, 2001, as some Democrats, and others, were to impeach President Clinton for the sake of what was, at bottom, merely a disgusting bit of personal fiddle-faddle.
Every sentient adult alive in the United States today knows, like most leading literate folk around most of the world, that I am stoutly opposed to President Bush's current, foolish economic and military policies; but, neither I, nor any other sane and honest person, is going to resort to the purely factitious fraud of blaming the President of the U.S.A. for errors he did not commit. I am not some corrupt opportunist, like those donkeys who staged an attempted lynching of President Clintonor some of the same donkeys, and others, now attempting to pin the donkey's tail on President Bush for Sept. 11, 2001.
A Matter of Competence
Before accusing either the CIA or Justice Department of incompetence in this matter, why not begin with what should be the obvious first question to be asked: Is the Justice Department usually competent in its report of any important investigation? Consider a few glaring examples of that problem.
Truth, Not 'Spin'
The lesson to be learned from the furor about the presently rewarmed old gossip about "Who lost us China?" is that until we have security and intelligence services which are committed to discovering and telling the truth, and a Congress which wishes to hear plain truthscontrary to its perceived factitious self-interestthe intelligence and security processes of the U.S. government will continue to stink. A competent intelligence service tells us truthfully what we need to know, not what we prefer to hear.
