Bush Knew 9/11 Was Going To Happen And Didn't Care. He Knew bin Laden Was About To Escape Tora Bora and Didn't Care. Now Can We Impeach Him?
As WaPo reports today, concerning THE ONE PERCENT DOCTRINE, Deep Inside America's Pursuit of Its Enemies Since 9/11, by Ron Suskind: "The book's opening anecdote tells of an unnamed CIA briefer who flew to Bush's Texas ranch during the scary summer of 2001, amid a flurry of reports of a pending al-Qaeda attack, to call the president's attention personally to the now-famous Aug. 6, 2001, memo titled 'Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US.' Bush reportedly heard the briefer out and replied: 'All right. You've covered your ass, now' (emphasis mine).
Three months later, with bin Laden holed up in the Afghan mountain redoubt of Tora Bora, the CIA official managing the Afghanistan campaign, Henry A. Crumpton (now the State Department's counterterrorism chief), brought a detailed map to Bush and Cheney. White House accounts have long insisted that Bush had every reason to believe that Pakistan's army and pro-U.S. Afghan militias had bin Laden cornered and that there was no reason to commit large numbers of U.S. troops to get him. But Crumpton's message in the Oval Office, as told through Suskind, was blunt: The surrogate forces were 'definitely not' up to the job, and 'we're going to lose our prey if we're not careful.'"
I fucking hate these fucking fuckers. Thousands of Americans are dead and it is George Bush's fault. He let it happen on purpose and he let bin Laden get away on purpose. Go ahead and send me a tin foil hat. No wonder the slimy little fucker sat there and kept his eyes firmly glued to MY PET GOAT.

Homeric Ode to Demeter, which tells of Hades who caught Persophone
"up reluctant on his golden car and bare her away lamenting. . . . But no one, either of the deathless gods or of mortal men, heard her voice, nor yet the olive-trees bearing rich fruit: only tenderhearted Hecate, bright-coiffed, the daughter of Persaeus, heard the girl from her cave . . . ."
