The Huffington Post, as usual, has decided to mark the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by attack their favorites targets. First we had Israel, of course, and then next up is the Bush administration:
The New York Times article they linked to does not, in fact, say that. There were warning signs going back for a long time that Al Qaeda was preparing an attack on America, that is definitely the case. But the information was not connected or implemented so as to stop them. This was all covered in "The Looming Tower," and the Clinton administration had the same problems when it came to the first WTC attack and later the bombing of the USS Cole.
I highly doubt, as many Huffington Posters were fast to claim, that a Democrat administration could have stopped the 9/11 attacks. Sorry, I just don't believe it. But of course on the Huffington Post it really isn't about 9/11, it's about taking shots at Republicans:
I say this not to defend Republicans or attack Democrats. I say this because it's a nice little lesson in how the Huffington Post is not a newspaper but merely a propaganda organ and echo chamber for those that share its politics. And although Republicans are the main target now, Israel and Jewish people may someday get there as well. We are already starting to see it happen.
