“We need a real criminal investigation into the most horrific crime ever to take place on American soil, and we need it now.” Thomas Keane head of the 911 Commission hearings Sept 6th, 2009
Bush's “perpetual war” is taking aim at Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, and Iran—all rich in petroleum. The U.S. backed brutal Israeli war against the Palestinians seeks to maintain U.S. hegemony over the oil-rich Middle East. U.S. military support to Colombia is now openly admitted by the Bush administration to be aimed at protecting pipelines and putting down popular insurgency. Similarly, the recent U.S.-backed coup attempt against the Chavez government of Venezuela had much to do with controlling that country's petroleum riches. Increasingly, U.S. and world public opinion is awakening to the hidden agenda of the “war on terrorism”—the corporate frenzy to plunder oil and other resources in the petroleum-rich arc stretching from the Middle East to Southeast Asia. The war in Afghanistan is central to reaping super profits from all that “black gold.” Karen Talbot
“Control oil and you control nations. Control food and you control people", Henry Kissinger
“There is no longer any doubt as to whether the Bush administration has committed war crimes.” US Major General Antonio Taguba, the retired major general who investigated abuses in Iraq. “The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy" Henry Kissinger.
“I am not aware of any evidence showing that President Bush or members of his administration have personally profited from the attacks of 9-11. A complete investigation might reveal that to be the case. For example, it is known that President Bush's father, through the Carlyle Group had - at the time of the attacks - joint business interests with the bin Laden construction company and many defense industry holdings, the stocks of which, have soared since September 11. On the other hand, what is undeniable is that corporations close to the Administration have directly benefited from the increased defense spending arising from the aftermath of September 11. The Carlyle Group, DynCorp, and Halliburton certainly stand out as companies close to this Administration. Secretary Rumsfeld maintained in a hearing before Congress that we can afford the new spending, even though the request for more defense spending is the highest increase in twenty years and the Pentagon has lost $2.3 trillion” Cynthia McKinney
