"It is amazing how many US citizens still believe that the 9/11 attacks were related to Saddam and his supposed connections to Al Qaeda..." Ted Moffett<br> <br> <br> Yeah well, people still believe that the Spanish blew up the USS Maine off the coast of Havana and John W. Booth was shot and killed in a burning barn. Individuals are smart, but the masses are complete idiots.<br> <br> The biggest weapon of mass destruction is Bush and his cronies in the White House. <br> <br> Best,<br> <br> _DJA<br><br><b><i>Ted Moffett <email@example.com></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> <div>Jim et. al.</div> <div> </div> <div>I heard about the ABC docudrama on terrorism, and the factual errors it contains.

<div>It is amazing how many US citizens still believe that the 9/11 attacks were related to Saddam and his supposed connections to Al Qaeda... And disturbing to witness how easily public opinion can be manipulated, indeed is still being manipulated, by half truths and falsehoods from the government. </div> <div> </div> <div>The "Weapons of Mass Distraction" function very well!</div> <div> </div> <div>Ted Moffett</div> <div> </div> <div><br> </div> <div><span class="gmail_quote">On 9/11/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Jim Meyer</b> <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>> wrote:</span> <blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0px 0px 0px 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">Ted,<br>I am embarrassed that nobody else responded to you.<br><br>The current number of Americans killed in Iraq is 2666. The total number <br>of casualties of Americans is about 20,000.
Every vision2020 member<br>should listen to Sen Carl Leven explain the timeline in the report. The<br>report is damning even with the redactions. I am sure you can Sen Leven <br>on the CSPAN website. You can also find the entire report.<br><br>The facts are that Saddam had nothing whatsoever to do with 911. There<br>were no significant weapons of mass destruction and due diligence would<br> have made it obvious even at the time. In 2003, 70% of Americans<br>believed there was a link between Saddam and<br>911.(<a href="http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2003-09-06-poll-iraq_x.htm">http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2003-09-06-poll-iraq_x.htm </a>).<br>Today that figure is still 43%<br>(<a href="http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/06/iraq.poll/index.html">http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/09/06/iraq.poll/index.html</a>). Meanwhile<br>the war profiteers are making a killing, literally and figuratively. <br><br>The American people still
believe the lie. They believe that Bush's<br>illegal war of aggression in Iraq, estimated to have killed between<br>40,000 and 250,000 Iraqi people, not to mention our own people, is<br>somehow connected to 911. You may close your ears and eyes, but the lie <br>remains. The truth is that our president and his cabinet should be<br>impeached, tried for treason, and tried as a war criminal on a multitude<br>of levels. And we are NOT safer.....<br><br>This past weekend and Monday, with the two-part Disney/ABC docu-drama <br>about 911 and Bush's free 15 minute speech about 911 on Monday, the<br>propaganda lie will continue. I am glad you are not one of the 43% that<br>believe it and I hope other vision2020 members also don't support it.<br> Our country will only survive if people wake to the facts. To help<br>others wake up, I challenge them to watch this link in<br>entirety.http://www.alternet.org/blogs/peek/41418/ . The anger shown is<br>appropriate to the circumstances.
If you are any less angry, you are <br>either a stooge, a sheep, or lemming.<br><br>It is time to get angry. It is not a pleasant thing--but it is time<br>because--our country, as we know it, depends on it.<br><br>I want to be fair, can anyone give me a rational reason why Bush should <br>not be tried for treason? For lying about getting us into a war that<br>killed 2666 Americans and wounded 20,000, waging an illegal war of<br>aggression, and for not upholding the constitution?<br><br>Jim<br><br><br><br> Today's Topics:<br>> 1.
