Recall Bush's National Security Advisor, testifying after being promoted to Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice saying, "No one could have imagined them taking a plane, slamming it into the Pentagon ... into the World Trade Center, using planes as missiles."
She was lying to the 9/11 Commission. Lying brazenly, counting on public ignorance to protect her.
There is a movie out today with dialogue in English that demonstrates the bizarrely dishonest nature of that complex lie. Al-Qaeda veterans from Afghanistan hijacked Air France Flight 8969 out of Algeria on Christmas Eve 1994. They intended to crash that Airbus 300 into the Eiffel Tower. France's G.I.G.N. stopped that suicide-hijacking cold -- the movie tells that story.
The Assault (L'assaut) -- City Cinemas Village East Cinema 181-189 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003 -- 11:30am 1:40 3:50 6:00 8:10 10:20pm
One movie theater. For New York.
Apparently one movie theater for all of North America.
The film is directed and co-written by Julien Leclercq. "The Assault" shows competent anti-terrorism officials taking action and risking their lives to stop this suicide-hijacking at any cost to themselves. Mixed with real footage from the incident.
The film allows audiences to contemplate what the world would be like today had the Eiffel Tower actually been blown to destruction in the early 90's. And if America's FAA had implemented counterterrorism protections for airliners -- preventing 9/11 right off.
This is a film that belies almost everything that the right-wingers say about 9/11.
Another Rice quote: "We need a common enemy to unite us." 2000.
