Jaw-dropping time AGAIN 

I knew Rumsfeld was calling for an invasion and bombing campaign against IRAQ on 9-11. I already knew that. It's common knowledge.

But I didn't know THIS:

Richard Clarke, who headed a cybersecurity board that gleaned intelligence from the Internet, told CBS ``60 Minutes'' in an interview to be aired on Sunday he was surprised administration officials turned immediately toward Iraq instead of al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

``They were talking about Iraq on 9/11. They were talking about it on 9/12,'' Clarke says.

Clarke said he was briefing President Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld among other top officials in the aftermath of the devastating attacks.

``Rumsfeld was saying we needed to bomb Iraq. ... We all said, 'but no, no. Al Qaeda is in Afghanistan,''' recounts Clarke, ``and Rumsfeld said, 'There aren't any good targets in Afghanistan and there are lots of good targets in Iraq.'''



Oh-my-fucking-God...

He was senile back then, too...
