In his first public remarks since the United States dubbed Cuba an outpost of tyranny, Fidel Castro called President Bush "deranged" and belittled recent improvements in relations between Cuba and Europe. From Nony

Sky Wrote the following on 02/03/2005 11:52 AM : Nony, don't make the mistake of thinking that the folks at Langley were caught by surprise on 9/11. Remember, they had been warning Bush for months. Everyone seems to have forgotten that Bush got in front of the camerals and spun this by saying that the CIA's intel didn't give him specific dates and places, so there was nothing they could do to prepare and safeguard against an attack. This, is of course, BS. Bush is utltimately responsible for success for the 9/11 attacks, because he fulfill his oath of office ("to protect and defend the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic"). He pushed the blame off onto George Tenent (spin!). Later he awarded Tenent the Medal of Freedom (spin! spin!). Have you noticed that he's found a fall guy for all of his failures?
Americans generally have very short memories and only the most basic idea of how thier government operates, and politicians always used to their advantage. Everyone has completely forgotten that in August, 2001, Bush had the lowest approval rating of any president in his first year of office in the history of the country. He was headed toward becoming a one term wonder. Then 9/11 "happened" and within weeks he was gearing up for war with Iraq. By the next State of the Union address (the infamous "Axis of Evil" speech), he was already declaring that he would be a "wartime president" and his approval ratings were soaring. Connect the dots and one can't fail but to understand that the whole thing had been carefully planned and scripted.
