Biding their time…looking for an opening
Pro-Torture Dick sez:
Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday vigorously defended the Bush administrationâ€™s use of secret domestic spying and the expansion of presidential powers, saying â€œitâ€™s not an accident that we havenâ€™t been hit in four years.â€
Let’s see…the terrorists first attacked the World Trade Towers in 1993 and The Clenis (unlike another President we could mention but we won’t) actually got his man.
On 26 February 1993, a car loaded with 1,200 pounds of explosives blew up in a parking garage under the World Trade Center, killing six people and injuring about a thousand others. The blast did not, as its planners intended, bring down the towers â€” that was finally accomplished by flying two hijacked airliners into the twin towers on the morning of 11 September 2001.
Four followers of the Egyptian cleric Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman were captured, convicted of the World Trade Center bombing in March 1994, and sentenced to 240 years in prison each. The purported mastermind of the plot, Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, was captured in 1995, convicted of the bombing in November 1997, and also sentenced to 240 years in prison. One additional suspect fled the U.S. and is believed to be living in Baghdad.
The terrorists did not attempt another attack on the World Trade Center until September 11, 2001, coming hot on the heels of a month-long Presidential vacation at Rancho Borracho where a document entitled “Bin Laden determined to strike in US” was treated like last nights condom.
There are no accidents.
