The narrative put forth by the Bush administration, mostly by Dick Cheney as of late, was that EITs were necessary to withdraw information from those with suspected close ties to Bin Laden and those who wished to cause us harm. Even going to the lenths as to cite CIA documents that would prove the thwarting of said threats.
Something dawned on me last night, and I'm kinda kicking myslef today for not thinking of this.
If any and all information was crucial to saving american lives in a post 9-11 era....
why did our administration allow this to happen?
Bin Ladens allowed out of U.S. after 9-11
seems they might have SOME info that we could use, right?
seems like we would do anything in our power to get that info, to save american lives....right?
The simple fact that while every amercan was grounded for days....the family of OBL was allowed to leave our country, after the horrors of that day. The juststification of EIDs by the Bush administration is a LIE.
They let the Bin Laden's leave.....
as the sex pistols said "Its a swindle!"
