Has George Bush hired Ramzi Yousef’s people to foment revolution in Iran? Ramzi made the bomb calculated to make one WTC tower fall against the other. Except he didn’t drive the truck into the very lowest level, but one up. He and his uncle, KSM, are from Baluchistan, where Benazir Bhutto’s father once violently put down a bloody uprising.
“The Baluchis are Sunni fundamentalists who hate the regime in Tehran, but you can also describe them as Al Qaeda...These are guys who cut off the heads of nonbelievers; in this case, it’s Shiite Iranians. The irony is that we’re once again working with Sunni fundamentalists, just as we did in Afghanistan in the 1980’s, Robert Baer, former CIA, tells Seymour M. Hersh in The New Yorker, 7-7-08.
Bush had already authorized US Special Operations Forces to cross the border into Iran last year? But now the “scale & scope of operations in Iran...have been significantly expanded”...(Seymour M. Hersh in The New Yorker). Admiral Fallon, by law was responsible for all military operations and strategy for Iran, Iraq, & Afghanistan. When he tried to make sure he knew about all the overt and covert activity in his command, was he forced out? Bush wants Congress to reaffirm that we are at war with al-Qaeda. So is he aiding and abetting the enemy?

From reading this article by Leonard Pitts-The common denominator in all the programs helping kids at risk,
is longer school days and longer school years; giving principals the power to hire good teachers and fire bad ones;
high expectations, parental involvement, counseling, consistency, incentives, and field trips.
Why should anyone pay to help Geoffrey Canada of Harlem Children's Zone help poor kids? Spending $3,500
a year on "Alfred", who is 8 is too much money? But when Alfred turns 18 and has to be locked up for ten years,
it costs $60,000 a year. Not to mention the other costs to society from "Alfred" actions. (Leonard Pitts, Jr.,

Attorney General Michael Mukasey now recognizes the “extraordinary risk” of terror suspects? Mukasey was judge at the trial of those who plotted to blow up targets in NYC. The lawyer for one of them wanted Ali Mohamed hauled in as a witness, but Mukasey didn’t do anything about it.
“’Yes, we saw him (Ali Mohamed) on that splendid videotape’”, Judge Mukasey is quoted by Peter Lance in “Triple Cross”. Would that be the FBI photos of Ali Mohamed teaching lots of middle-eastern men how to fire off AK-47’s on Long Island? If so, shouldn’t it have occurred to Judge Mukasey that this was a dangerous guy?
Ali Mohamed somehow got into our country in 1983, and was like dancing around, daring the FBI, DOJ, etc., to catch him. He confessed in 1993 to his FBI “handler”, says Lance. P.128 of “Triple Cross”: “According to a sworn affidavit filed in Federal Court in 1998, Ali Mohamed admitted that ‘Osama bin Laden ran an organization called al Qaeda and was building an army which may be used to overthrow the Saudi government. Mohamed further stated that bin Laden was operating camps in the Sudan....” Ali even pointed them out on a map.
Now Mukasey wants Congress to make a law that dangerous people can’t come into our country. Why didn’t he catch the one he knew about? Bush wants Congress to reaffirm that we are at war with al-Qaeda. After he whisked Osama’s family out of the U.S?
