Since that time, we've been told that a terrorist group named Al Qaeda, led by a Saudi named Osama bin Laden, was responsible for what happened on September 11, 2001. In fact, Osama bin Laden has admitted to being behind what happened on 9/11/01 and he's said this on video.
Osama bin Laden is to 9/11 what Emmanuel Goldstein was to members of The Party in George Orwell's "1984".
Just as Goldstein aroused fear and anger in members of The Party, Osama bin Laden has aroused fear and anger in many who live in the FUSA (Former United States of America).
What do my family's vacation plans have to do with this essay?
On occasion, it's been revealed that Osama bin Laden is somewhere in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan or Pakistan.
It's important here to remember that the FUSA invaded Iraq and now occupies that country. We've been spun through numerous reasons why this was done.
First, "Saddam" had weapons of mass destruction. Our Secretary of Defense claimed to know exactly where they were before we invaded Iraq. We've long since learned that there were no such weapons. There are people that say "Saddam" moved them before the invasion or hid them. This is strange behavior for a man whose life depended upon his actually having them and using them.
Secondly, Iraq had ties with Al Qaeda, according to Bush and Cheney. No he didn't, according to Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld and, yes, Bush. Yes he did according to Cheney. No he didn't... The truth? Saddam Hussein and the members of Al Qaeda were adversaries. Sorry, Dick. Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, and, sometimes, Bush, are all correct.
Then, it suddenly became urgent that we free Iraq. We needed to hurry, invade Iraq, topple Saddam Hussein and force feed Iraqis something that The Regime calls "democracy".
That's even stranger than Saddam hiding or moving his means of defense. We were attacked by terrorists from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Lebanon. They were guided by the words of Osama bin Laden and the ideology of Al Qaeda. Yet, instead of hunting down Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, it suddenly became our top priority to bring down the Iraqi government and begin building a "democratic" Iraq.
To review, 9/11 happened and, if you're so inclined, you can believe The Regime's fairy tale about how it happened.
The Regime has the most technologically advanced satellite imaging in the world.
