Outside job?

Obama’s Afghanistan strategy seems entirely based on the assumption that 9/11 was an outside job. I’d like to see more evidence to that effect before I take him seriously. I thought Omar Saeed Sheikh of the Pakistan military intelligence wired the money. Why doesn’t Obama level with the American people? One radio caller said yesterday that along the natural gas pipeline is where most of our troops are stationed. And we know that Hamed Kharzai was with UNOCAL. I can see trying to improve human rights for women, but I don’t think that was one of the reasons given. Generally, wars violate the Green Party Key Value of Nonviolence, which is why Greens have been against this war from the start.

"Crossing the Rubicon" by Mike Ruppert is available via http://www.fromthewilderness.com/.

Other good 9/11 resources include "Loose Change" and "Zeitgeist".

This article helps show the link between 9/11 and Pakistan:

Here's another source:

CIA Director George Tenet and State Department officials Richard Armitage and Marc Grossman met with Pakistan ISI Chief General Mahmoud Ahmad the week of 9/11. It is believed that Ahmad, through ISI agent Omar Saeed Sheikh, wired $100,000 to 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta.

I did not claim that 9/11 was an inside job. I voiced skeptism that it was an outside job. Don't take my word for it. Don't take Ruppert's word for it. His book is thoroughly footnoted. I have spot-checked a few of the notes. Based on what I have observed, I don't think President Obama is leveling with the American people.

Whether or not you believe the official version of 9/11 events, there is still the question of what the heck we’re doing in Afghanistan. It will be interesting to see if our troops go to the east of the country, near Tora Bora, where Bin Laden was last located, or to the west of the country, from Herat to Kandahar, where the natural gas pipeline is planned. Here are some maps:

Jesse Ventura asks a good question: “Why haven’t they indicted Bin Laden?” I think Obama owes us an indictment before putting troops in harm’s way. I am interested in Ventura’s new show, “Conspiracy Theory” on TruTV, Wednesdays, 9 pm Central. The first show, on HAARP, was quite interesting.

Not sure how T. Boone Pickens fits into all this. If we have enough natural gas in the U.S., that might impact the Afghanistan pipeline theory.
