    Dismal.

    'Who even remembers that, as the Pentagon burned, then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld picked up a scrap of hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 from the smoking ruins of that building..'

    Rumsfeld was in overall command of the military on 9-11 with Bush out of action. I guess the commander of the worlds most powerful military normally wanders around picking up wreckage when the nation is under unprecedented attack rather than moving to a secure location and taking his place at the top of the chain of command.

    'Bush administration officials, however, didnít encourage any focus whatsoever on U.S. petro-ally Saudi Arabia, the country from which 15 of the 19 September 11th hijackers came. (None were Afghans.)'

    There was a massive and highly informative focus on them by the FBI and CIA, the bumbling bear accidentally dropped multiple spanners in the works and then accidently concealed all the evidence for 20 years.

    'In reality, Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. '

    Nor did Afghanistan, although this is apparently a heresy too far for the author.

    Interesting how similar this article is to the one in neocon rag the Atlantic.
