Remember the victims today, but tomorrow read this article:

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.
