8. To everyone that already replied:
If you think Cheney et al are secretly planning to orchestrate a Second 9/11 as an excuse to escalate our invasion of the Mid-East, why did they press to arrest the alleged liquid bomb terror suspects, rather than letting them go through with it?

(anyone else notice this is at least the second time in a week that a retired CIA officer is being quoted & believed in the September 11th forum?)

That said, there's nothing wrong or sinister with devising contingency plans in the event of a devastating attack - it would be criminal not to - but I'm equally concerned about the lack of planning/funds for prevention and domestic rescue and recovery.

To put this in perspective, remember the nuclear contingency plans that have existed for decades, as spelled out by Dr. Helen Caldicott. I'm glad there are activists for non-proliferation. Too bad d.avery and webfairy don't waste their time on stuff like that.

Don't be frightened as the powers that be would have you. Take their power away.
