    I've already posted this guy once tonight, but he's clearly needed again:

    Because he's not the most wanted man in the world.

    If he was, he would have been killed a long time ago.

    It took us nine months to find Saddam. We've killed and/or apprehended about 368 Al-Qaeda "No. 3" men.

    OBL? We're at 69 months and counting.

    Did you actually read the PDF? How's this: the saudis in vegas said they had gathered there because there had been an earthquake in california several days earlier. (not to get coked up and party with prostitutes).

    So I guess backup questions that should have been asked: there've been many earthquakes in california in the past, THIS one made you all decide it was time to leave? Did you plan to go back? Are there really people who live in California that will get scared away by an earthquake? Wouldn't they kind of take it as a fact of life, kind of like people who live were there are occassionally hurricanes?

    That just seems like a pretty lame reason for why they were there, taken with the fact that 9/11 happened 2 days later (and they subsequently left for Saudi Arabia 9 days after that).

    Don't you think it would be possible that the saudis might have had some kind of inkling/intelligence that something might be about to happen and their people in the united states had better be on their toes?

    Bush doesn't read PDBs.

    You expect us to read PDFs?

  7. Letting any member of the bin Laden family out of the country before they were thoroughly debriefed was a violation of criminal investigation 101.

    Those documents say nothing we didn't already know. The FBI did question them. And the 9/11 report concluded there is nothing there--this is old news. Despite what some would have you believe, this was AFTER air traffic had been resumed, and there were no special provisions made for those Saudis, who were doing what thousands of other foreign nationals did after 9/11 (we didn't detain all of them either)--getting the hell away from here the minute they were allowed to leave.

    This idiocy would make some sense if with the benefit of hindsight we knew that a bunch of billionaire Saudis--who DEPEND on the U.S. (why this is ridiculous!)--were the ones behind 9/11, not a bunch of Muslim extremists who actually hate the Saudi royal family (again, what makes this stupidity ridiculous) as much as they hate the U.S. Not that thinking that logically should even be necessary. If they were involved in 9/11, why would they be dumb enough to come hang out in Las Vegas--and put themselves into our hands--right when they were planning to attack the country?

    You know, Timothy McVeigh's entire extended family weren't co-conspirators. All of Ted Kaszynki's parents' friends weren't involved. Beyond some cursory interviews, I am sure the FBI didn't round them all up, either. Imagine that.

    Now that you've blown the cover off of the Saudi royal family's involvement in 9/11, I think you need to shed new light on the Shoe Bomber. I don't think they investigated his third-grade teacher well enough. There is obviously something fishy there.
  9. You honestly believe that the Saudis have told us everything they know/knew about the involvement of the royals with bin Laden, and everything they knew about the attacks, before or after?
    Based on what?
    And can you name an investigation of any murder that would clear every member of the immediate family in a little more than a week? There are detectives in one-cop towns who would tell you you're wrong.

    Ha! I kind of look at the Kennedy shooting like The Sopranos. Everybody can write their own ending.

    By the way, does anybody know where Paulie Walnuts and Junior Soprano were in November, 1963?

    They got held up trying to parallel park, which was a bitch in those days because almost no cars had power steering.
