Geyer: Tenet Confirms What Many Already Knew

Over the decades of her reporting on international politics Georgie Anne Geyer has seen ‘em come and seen ‘em go. Her take -- “Tenet Confirms What Many Already Knew” -- on the new Tenet book, and the nefarious role of neoconservatives in getting America into a war it will be hard to get out of, is worth reading. Here’s an excerpt:

“...But in truth, the Tenet book, ‘At the Center of the Storm,’ is old stuff. It only confirms what culture-savvy journalists like Arnaud de Borchgrave of United Press International, Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune, Trudy Rubin of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Seymour Hersh of The New Yorker and, modestly, yours truly, were writing even a year before the war started.

“Still, one has to say, Thanks, George! Your book will stand as a kind of final confirmation for all of us. As the neocons have momentarily paused in their passions to destroy our country, just about the only ones left to join the ‘mea culpa’ club now are the president himself, Vice President Cheney and the disgraced (and disappeared!) Donald Rumsfeld.”

The pivotal import of Yellowcake, False Flags, & "Big Time" Evil

Hello FT and all,

The combination of George Tenet's book, At the Center of the Storm, Eisner & Royce's The Italian Letter and the books and research of many others in recent years now provides enough of a foundation for everyone to finally discern that 9:11 was a "false flag" operation against both the American public and the Muslim world. Likewise, the uncanny synchronicity of Al Qaeda's videos and other activities perfectly timed to reinforce and support the Bush/Cheney administration's political needs coupled with the actions of the Bush admin actually serving to strengthen Al Qaeda's position, now makes perfect sense. The apparent mistakes and chaos that have characterized the Iraq war, the easily prevented resurgence of the Taliban, and permitting Bin Laden to escape Tora Bora to a safe haven in Pakistan all fit the same pattern. It's hard to maintain a state of continuous war if you allow your made-to-order enemies to be defeated too early. It is likewise hard to remain a "war president" if your wars end too soon!

The letterhead used to forge the "Yellowcake letter" that was then used to help "sell" the Iraq war was stolen in Rome on 1/1/2001, more than nine months before 9:11 and before Little W. became president. Consequently, the use of the "Yellow-Cake Lie" was obviously discussed and planned before then! The import of this fact is that the Niger embassy in Rome was burglarized, before Bush became president, to lay the groundwork for the web of deception used to sell the Iraq War, after 9:11. More importantly, it is highly unlikely that the Iraq war could ever have been sold to the American public, without something like 9:11 happening first. Any excuses of other uses for the stolen letterhead are laughable since the letterhead burglary would have been pointless, without 9:11. This evidences foreknowledge of those attacks, a full nine months before they occurred, among other things!

Would you please consider reading a book called The Terror Timeline by Paul Thompson(from HarperCollins). It is the chronicle of the events leading to 9/11. It uses only mainstream media sources and government reports, but tells the "alternative history" of what really happened. You will develop a view that jives with neither a left or right wing slant. THANKS
