Remember the victims today, but tomorrow read this article:

New York Times

The Deafness Before the Storm


To quote that article:  “neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack to distract the administration from Saddam Hussein”

What a commentary.   But this fits with everything else that has come to light regarding the over-riding obsession with Saddam and indications that planning for the war with Iraq preceded 9-11.
