    Obviously an embarrassing lie that will never go away and forever be infamous. What is even sadder is they might have allowed 9-11 to happen in order to force America into Iraq.

    we're not supposed to talk about that anymore, Mav. ... haven't you gotten the memo? ... it was never investigated, or brought to accountability by a complicit Congress.... so they just waited us out to where it's an eye-roll topic nowadays... not because of merit, but merely because it's inconvenient and "not what's best for the nation"....
