I just had a Boulder moment! As I was taking the trash out to the dumpster, a Black suburban winds its way through the parking lot of my apartment complex. A guy with sunglasses leans out the window, a bullhorn in his hand.

The tinny bullhorn voice floats fourth...

"Wake up, America. 9/11 was an inside job! Your government is lying to you."

He sticks his head back inside, and the Suburban speeds up and drives away. Never can be too careful - those G-men lurk everywhere! Hahahhaa.

Now, I'll be the first to shout from the rooftops that the Bush II admn lied to us blatantly to get us into Iraq. And Bush deserves to be impeached 2,418 times over it - since that's the (current) number of soldiers killed there by his damned lies.

But 9/11 an inside job? 9/11 a vast conspiracy, orchestrated by the same government who, as Rumsfeld so eloquently put it, "has a worse PR organization than Al Qaida"?? The only "conspiracy" unfolding in this country is the one between Dubya's ears - the one that prompts him to check under his bed at night to make sure there are no TERRAH-ists or WMDs there...

okay, so I spoke to Tom tonight.

He concurs that sending up unarmed F-15s was inappropriate not only in theory, but in practice. Not only was it inane, but it goes against regulations.

He also confirms that armed planes were ready and available at bases closer to the incidents then those that were called to intercept. Those sent to intercept were also improperly vectored over the ocean (for no good reason or explination yet given).

So, this continues to beg the quetion : how could the system possibly have failed so badly? If it wasn't at least in part an inside job then what the hell really did happen and why hasn't anyone gotten to the bottom of it? (I'll note here that the 9/11 commission FAILED to do so)
